Our Story


The ocean covers nearly 70% of the Earth, yet, 95% of it remains a mystery. Submarine or drone expedition belongs exclusively to the elite who can afford expensive equipment and trips. Aalto Explorer believes that curiosity is the road of greatness.
Power the people, we build the world’s first underwater expedition platform which enables anyone with a love for ocean to easily explore the deep sea from anywhere any time on their connected device.
Aalto Explorer aims to create impacts on advancing human knowledge and experience with the wonderful world underwater and supporting researchers, scientists and environment activist with the enormous data collection reflecting the seas condition around the world.
