Explore new depths.

About Nautilus

Started by a small team of undergraduate engineers
at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Nautilus is designed to give you a new perspective of the world
around you. The goal of this project is to create an
affordable underwater ROV that can be used in many
applications, ranging from casual photography to
Search and Rescue.

With two modes of operation, Nautilus ensures you're
able to capture amazing Full HD 1080p footage whether you're
in the water, or on shore.
