Meet the Team

It takes a lot of people to explore the ocean — at any particular moment E/V Nautilus can host up to 31 members of the science team and 17 ship’s crew, all contributing in various ways to the scientific efforts of the Corps of Exploration. No one is expendable — without pilots, cooks, navigators, mates, data loggers, engineers, and many more, the ship couldn’t function. You don't have to have a Ph.D. to sail on Nautilus — just a passion for science and discovery.
