Welcome to BUEI

Exciting, amazing and educational – that’s what the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) is all about! We’re here to advance everyone’s understanding of our oceans and seas and we work to bring a unique experience for people of all ages. Whether it’s one of our comprehensive exhibits or a fun BUEI Summer Camp for kids, we’re sure that everyone will leave will with a better appreciation and more knowledge about all exists beneath the surfaces of our oceans and their importance to our planet.

We invite you to explore with us!

“Thirty years ago, John F. Kennedy observed that although 70 percent of the earth is covered by water, mankind lavished more money, energy and time on studying the surface of the moon than on learning about the oceans of our own planet.

And sadly, despite enormous improvements in technology, we still focus more on the stars above than on the seas around us.

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute can be a pioneer in redressing that lunatic imbalance. By focusing on everything from marine biology to the technology of underwater exploration and deep-ocean ecology, by offering the public glimpses of all the wonders beneath the surface, the Institute will foster a greater appreciation and understanding of this last critical frontier.

We are now just beginning to realize how little we know about the sea. There are vast regions unexplored, secret species undiscovered, countless marvels unimagined.

As man takes bold steps into the future, the Institute will be there to record his progress for a waiting world.”
