Bringing the Ocean to the People - Articles Surfing

The Discoverer Ketty Lund, as scientist Ed Little famously remarked: "Brings the Ocean to the People.'

Discoverer Scientific Charters has the sole purpose of undertaking and supporting research projects in the Marine Sciences and, importantly, bringing awareness of human oceanographic endeavor to the public at large.

As such the voyages of the Discoverer Ketty Lund, at sea for forty years from the Arctic to the Tropics, have featured in the domestic US press, the international press including the Financial Times, on television news, and in documentary programs such as the History Channel.

Her Captain, Eric Wartenweiler Smith, is a veteran archeological diver for the European Institute of Underwater Archeology. As part of the team led by legendary underwater explorer Franck Goddio, Smith has participated in excavations on over 25 shipwrecks and 3 sunken cities, including the royal quarters of Alexandria, Egypt. As a result of participating in Goddio's amazing finds, Smith has appeared in specials on the Discovery Channel and many interviews in the world press.

Smith and other Discoverer Crew often give presentations at business and social venues on behalf of commercial sponsors interested in participating in the excitement of ocean exploration. By supporting awareness of Discoverer missions, the sponsors get access to exciting photography, video, and written descriptions of the project portraying their involvement.

The creation of a documentary series for TV, chronicling the Discoverer Ketty Lund's history of exploration and future expeditions as she continues her circumnavigation of the Atlantic via Greenland, Iceland, her native Scandinavia, Europe, and Africa, is being developed to begin in 2006. By revisiting the many romantic ports she has called to in the past, and greeting old friends between scientific voyages, the Discoverer Ketty Lund will carry the spirit of exploration of the sea into the future.
