Why People LOVE Deep Trekker
- Dave FraserOwner/Operator at Sunset Diving
"We have been using DTG smart unit for more than an year now in our aquaculture operations. It worked really well for us. It took away a lot of costly dive time. This was the low cost, portable and easy to operate machine at the time we bought. I believe, it still is. The best things about this purchasing this machine is, ease of operation, very cooperative sales team and best after sale support and service. Very low down time observed with the machine too as most of minor repairs can be done on site."
- Jayaprabandh PudotaHarmful Plankton Monitor/Technician
"Last time we looked there was not an ROV that competes at this price point; considering size, function, features and customer service, two thumbs up!
"Our larger ROV has often not been on a job site because it use was not anticipated or it's footprint was just too large. We purchased the DTG2 to fill in a gap we had; it's small and ultra portable and the video feed is reasonable. We have basically shelved drop cameras that cost more than this unit."

August 5, 2016When President Sam Macdonald and Engineer Jeff Lotz started Deep Trekker they had no idea the impact the ROVs would have on fish farms around the globe. Initially building what was to be a simple exploration vehicle, they didn’t realize that their tool would become the go-to farm monitoring tool for aquaculture operations spanning across… Read More »
Some people call it an underwater robot or an underwater drone, the technical term is really “remotely operated vehicle” or “ROV” and those that are ROV pilots understand this term. But hey, what about the rest of us, what does that mean? Is it on land, air or water? Well, ROV implies ‘underwater remotely operated vehicle’. It is essentially a remote control underwater camera. Yes, it’s like having your own personal diver to perform all of those intricate and difficult jobs without ever having to pay someone to get in the water.
Quickly and efficiently inspect underwater infrastructure, record aquaculture net inspections, inspect pipelines and tanks without diver intervention, and more. Record your inspections for documentation all using a Deep Trekker ROV with underwater camera. HD video is captured in real time, and anyone can pilot the Deep Trekker line of ROVs – so your engineers that know what they are looking for and can complete the inspections without relying on someone else’s interpretation.
Already know about ROVs?
Maybe you’re looking for an affordable underwater ROV or just one that’s easy to use, but ours looks quite a bit different than the traditional ones you may already know. Deep Trekker ROVs don’t look like other ROVs because it’s unlike any other subsea vehicle on the market. The rugged, robust Deep Trekker DTG2 and DTX2 were designed with tough jobs in mind, but with intense attention given to the user experience. Taking their cues from larger ROVs, the Deep Trekker brings all of the functionality required for difficult jobs, but without the usual complexity.
Deep Trekker Inc. is the world’s only remotely operated vehicle manufacturer of affordable ROVs, which are portable and easy to use. We believe that commercial grade ROVs shouldn’t be limited to large companies with big enough budgets – we provide a product that is built to take a beating but not break the bank.
