We know the ocean

Blueye Pioneer is developed and tested in rough conditions in Arctic waters. With years of experience from working with the ocean, we know how to make the tools you need to tackle challenging currents and high seas - this underwater drone is not only for still lakes!

Your eyes below the surface

Control the Pioneer easily by using your own smartphone, tablet or goggles and the Blueye App. Share your dive live by either letting friends or crew on site connect to the video stream directly, or via online services and social media.

The Blueye Pioneer system is designed to ensure a truly enjoyable experience of remote underwater exploration.

Carry out your own underwater inspections

Perform inspections more frequently and identify problems before any incidents happen.

No need to wait for divers or ROV operators. Simply do the underwater inspection yourself.
