We're absolute specialists in the science of Hydrography, with a reputation for being trustworthy and capable professionals.
Hydrography is a complex science requiring skills and knowledge in the acquisition and analysis of bathymetry (the depths and profile of the seabed), as well understanding factors that influence this environment including tides, water temperature and seabed texture.
Our senior surveyors have gained their certifications via a lengthy pathway which includes tertiary-level qualifications and post-graduate international certifications in our area of specialty. Furthermore, in order to qualify as a Surveyor in Charge for nautical charting surveys, a surveyor must also demonstrate at least 5 - 7 years of suitable infield experience.
We ensure that our team are also capable mariners, a critical skill set for working in our environment.
