Brothers Volcano Expedition

March 6 - 26, 2018

Follow along as we travel inside an underwater volcano on the Kermadec Arc northeast of New Zealand. We will explore the caldera floor and walls where hydrothermal vents create some of the most extreme environments on Earth.

We will be sharing stories, videos, and photos along the way and answering your questions about the expedition.

Check back on March 7 for our first update and to experience a brand-new Dive & Discover website.
