Vision & Mission

Our Vision:

To Improve humanity by transforming our ability to live and work under the sea.

Our Mission:

Designing, building and operating underwater habitats to provide safe, affordable and accessible underwater work/play/live experiences and capabilities

Our Name:

Our name ARGONETA is based on the scientific name of the diving bell spider "argyroneta aquatica." It is an air-breathing spider that lives underwater. It uses special silk to create  webbed bubbles between aquatic plants and fills the "diving bell" with air for breathing.
