Video Gallery

Modern video technology has changed the way we all experience the ocean depths. William Beebe's 1934 book Half Mile Down revealed the deep sea for lay audiences - in a few black and white photographs and line drawings. Mass media - film and television - created a rise in public interest in the deep ocean from the 1960s to the present, promoted first by Capt. Jacques Cousteau, The National Geographic Society and Discovery Channel and other underwater film and video pioneers.

Today, video is a common tool for ocean scientists and educators as well as film and video production professionals. At Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, we use video as a seafloor observation tool. Cameras attached to Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and other submersibles allow us to explore and verify seafloor composition, habitats and the occurrence of fishes and invertebrate species. In addition, we use video to survey shipwrecks.

Enjoy some of our clips, taken from our research expeditions. For more information about our video library please e-mail olympiccoast@noaa.gov and include the words “VIDEO REQUEST” in the subject header.
