July 19, 2017 - Lindblad Expeditions uses VideoRay Pro 4 IP-65 ROV, finds densest krill population ever seen on one of their expeditions

Mirror-Mountain

Lindblad Expeditions deployed a VideoRay Pro 4 on the ROV’s maiden voyage to Svalbard, Norway on May 17, 2017. Onboard the National Geographic Orion, Paul North and Caitlyn Webster, both Undersea Specialists with Lindblad Expeditions and VideoRay Certified Operators, flew the ROV for three different dives during the expedition. On the Pro 4’s second dive, to 540 feet, the group experienced a dense population of krill, the densest ever seen by these Undersea Specialists. Ian Tomcho, expedition equipment specialist for Lindblad Expeditions, commented “We could not see farther than 2 inches in front of the camera. We did not know how close we were to the ocean floor, even while hovering a few feet above it, because of all the krill.” Every evening after a dive, Paul would discuss the footage captured with the guests on the expedition. 

 The crew used the new VideoRay Pro 4 IP-65 Base System. The control panel was engineered to IP-65 standards, perfect for Lindblad’s extreme environment expeditions. Ian explained that Lindblad offers “up close and personal encounters with beauty, wildness and the seldom-seen.”

With the help of their VideoRay Pro 4 ROV, Lindblad found the densest population of krill they had ever witnessed at depth. This discovery will help the scientific community to better understand krill behavior and daily migrations. VideoRay is proud to have their ROVs included in Lindblad’s roster of Tools for Exploration. We are looking forward to future expeditions and many more discoveries.
