Supporters and Sponsors

Locating, researching and investigating things at the bottom of the sea is not an easy task. Or cheap. I am eternally grateful to a number of supporters who have contributed not only their time, effort and equipment, but really without them I would struggle to do what I do. In no particular order, I would like to offer my gratitude to a wonderful and eclectic array of supporters below:

deep3D owner Simon Brown is a professional underwater photographer. deep3D is his latest venture and has been built around his passion for photogrammetry. Simon produces incredible models, some of which are on display in our 3D Library.

C-MAX is a leading supplier of professional sidescan sonar systems and they have supported me over many years, their service and equipment is second to none.

Thanks to an incredible sponsorship from Agisoft, donating a full professional licence to their excellent Photoscan software, we have really pushed forward with mapping and modelling various objects and wreck sites.

The Dolmen are a relentless organic Celtic rock band born from the county of Dorset, England. They are huge supporters of Deeper Dorset and can often be found raising much needed funds for the cause. If you’re lucky you may even catch them playing live on the boat in Weymouth harbour one evening.

John has been a long time supporter of Deeper Dorset and has supplied much of the on-board electronics over the years. If you’re after any marine technology, check out his online shop by clicking the logo to the left.

Joan Allen metal detectors a legend in the metal detecting world. We have just taken delivery of a further two units to compliment our existing Minelab Excalibur2. Excellent service, excellent support, brilliant gear. 


Orcalight meets the demands of both professional and recreational divers looking for a step change in their underwater lighting capability, and particularly for underwater exploration, photography and videography. Two of their fantastic lights enable us to produce some stunning 3D models of our wreck sites.
