Freeport, Grand Bahama -  In December 2011 the Bahamas Film Commission and Mackey Media Ltd / The Bahamas Weekly went to explore the amazing Triton underwater vehicles along with NBC, Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, BBC and other media for an adventure-filled day on board the Atlantis II research vessel.

We are pleased to present herewith our promised Video Interviews with Triton Submarines CEO  L. Bruce Jones and team members; Troy Engen and Mark Deppe, together with Donna Mackey  Sr. Manager for Film Development on Grand Bahama Island...

About Triton Submarines:

The Triton series of deep submersibles, in four models, represent the only submersible designs in the world today developed specifically to meet
the requirements of yacht based use.

Spectacular visibility, extraordinary surface stability and excellent freeboard coupled with state-of-the-art technology make the ABS-certified Triton the safest, most comfortable and most advanced deep submersible in the sea.

Often imitated, but never equaled, the Triton is unashamedly built with extreme attention to detail by a group whose collective 331 years experience  in the civil submarine business is unequaled.  After all, you wouldn't want to take your loved  ones to 1000 meters in a cheap, poorly  constructed submarine, would you?

   

About the Atlantis II:

RV Atlantis II is a research vessel formerly operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The ship was built in 1962. It was used as the support vessel for the Alvin submersible for many years, and retired from Woods Hole service in 1996. After a period of inactivity in New Orleans it was transferred to the travel adventure company Outlander Expeditions in 2006.
