Exploration Vessel Nautilus has begun an eight-month deep-sea expedition.

The ship is carrying a team of researchers, educators, and crew members through areas of the Pacific Ocean surrounding Hawaiʻi. Expedition leaders hope to bring new findings to light on geology and marine biology.

Schools can sign up to talk with the team remotely for keiki to learn more about ocean exploration. Staff will also be livestreaming deep-sea dives on their Youtube channel.

Nautilus is currently near the Palmyra Atoll, collecting rock samples that can help with understanding geological history.

This is its 12th exploration since 2011.
