Atlantis in New York

Welcome to New York

In May 1997, the recently launched research vessel R/V Atlantis made its way into New York City during its first year of service. Atlantis continues to be operated by WHOI to further ocean science research. Named for WHOI’s original research vessel and owned by the U.S. Navy, Atlantis is the only ship in the U.S. fleet that can support the deep-sea submersible Alvin. In recent years, Atlantis has frequently been used for expeditions to undersea volcanoes and hydrothermal vents, extreme environments reminiscent of the mysterious undersea civilization the ship’s name alludes to.
