The company remains Research Vessel Tiburon, Inc. but is now doing business as “Tiburon Subsea Services .” According to the company, the change in name is a more accurate representation of its new direction and underwater operations.

RV Tiburon started out as a vessel charter and dive support company and in the last eighteen years has supported numerous expeditions and projects with noted clients which include: National Geographic, Mote Marine Lab, University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, NOAA and European Institute of Archeology. These projects employed numerous disciplines from technical closed circuit rebreather diving, ROV operations, side-scan sonar, magnetometer, TV and movie filming contracts and coral reef reconstruction. In 2007, the company signed a multiyear contract to operate and develop standardize procedures for a 1,500-meter AUV system, developing and training staff and experts, logging months at sea and mapping 2,300 square miles at 1,300+ meters depths up to two hundred miles offshore.

Tiburon Subsea Services offers offshore ROV operations, AUV support; deep see acceptance trials, vessel charter support, underwater filming, operations staff and consulting. In 2011 the company added “Otis” to their fleet. “Otis” is a custom built 600-meter Spectre ROV system with HD cameras, LED lighting array, five-way hydraulic manipulator arm and 3D forward looking Gemini sonar all equipped in a twenty foot container with its own custom A-Frame that can ship anywhere in the world. The system can be custom integrated on the company’s vessel “Tiburon” or mounted on any appropriate vessel of opportunity.
