Recent Production Credits

Working with the awesome crew from Hazmat Productions our vessel and team helped support two great shows this year!

Jaws vs Kraken – something shocking is happening in the abyss around Guadalupe Island. Photos of great whites with strange scars believed to be from giant squids have surfaced. Dr. Tristan Guttridge leads a mission to get a glimpse into the battles between the two beasts.

Mission Shark Dome – a team of shark experts uses new dive technology to get closer to sharks than ever before. Dr. Austin Gallagher and Andre Musgrove enter the Shark Dome to allow them to dive without noisy scuba equipment to locate an elusive great white pupping zone.

Two Emmy Win for Great White Shift

It’s no surprise that a productions company we hosted at Guadalupe Island won an emmy last night for their educational documentary on great white sharks called Great White Shift. Winning TWO Emmy’s was the big surprise. Congratulations team!

We have been the primary vessel and crew support for REMUS Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution underwater drone technology for two years running at Guadalupe Island for Discovery’s Channel Shark Week. This groundbreaking study revealed, for the first time, underwater predation strategies for great white sharks at Guadalupe Island. The MV Horizon is currently involved in productions in the Sea of Cortez, Guadalupe Island, and beyond.The REMUS 6000 is an innovative, versatile research tool designed to operate in depths ranging from 25 meters (82 feet) to 6,000 meters (19,685 feet or 3.73 miles), allowing for a wide range of autonomous operations – including tracking great white sharks in the wild at Isla Guadalupe.
