The International SeaKeepers Society (SeaKeepers) will be presenting this year’s 2021 SeaKeeper of the Year award to CDR Victor Vescovo, USN (Ret.). The SeaKeepers Award Event 2022 will be held at Island Gardens on Thursday, February 17th, during the Miami Boat Show.

EYOS Expeditions Co-Founder Rob McCallum, Newcastle University Professor Dr. Alan Jamieson, Triton Submarines’ President Patrick Lahey and Principal Mechanical/Electrical Designers John Ramsay and Tom Blades joined Vescovo as they helped navigate, design, and scientifically use an innovation that would break world records and illuminate what had previously only been theories about the deepest parts of our oceans.
