The Technology of Pathfinders Enables an Exciting New Type of Tourism

Pathfinders are the latest groundbreaking innovation from futurologist Phil Pauley. They are deep sea submarines that have the capability to uniquely drive ashore onto any port or coastline.

As space travel becomes privatised, Phil’s vision is that prolonged ocean exploration will become ever more popular for tourism, research and commercial applications. Imagine being able to actually book an overnight trip to go and see the Titanic or the Hydrothermal Vents deep in the Mariana Trench where only a handful of humans have been before!

With more efficient and quieter green battery-powered motors becoming the norm for underwater vehicles, noise reduction means that natural marine behaviour remain undisturbed in their natural environment.

With less than 5% of our global ocean currently explored, Pathfinders represent an exciting new era of underwater tourism, research and ocean discovery and it is fast becoming the next pioneering challenge for human progress.
