The Deep Trekker Difference
We’re building a new breed of ROVs
Our ROVs are like no other ROV you’ve seen. The DTG2 and DTX2 are small while also extremely rugged, robust and capable and have been adopted around the world as the go to underwater observation tools. The line of DTG2 and DTX2 ROVs are based on clean-sheet, innovative engineering focused on customer feedback and needs. We are committed to providing a new breed of submersibles, based on providing the most portable, affordable, and easy to use subsea observation tools in the world.
"Our larger ROV has often not been on a job site because it uses 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."
- Bruce GrayOperations Officer, Environment Canada
"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 downtime observed with the machine too as most of the minor repairs can be done on-site."
- Jayaprabandh PudotaHarmful Plankton Monitor/Technician
"We have utilized the ROV for a variety of functions, such as checking on our anchoring system and conducting underwater inspections that are usually costly and difficult for divers to perform. The ROV has enabled us to reduce the costs associated with divers and has aided us in ensuring that our innovative technology is functioning as designed."

EASY TO USE
Anyone should be able to complete their own underwater inspections with the Deep Trekker line of ROVs. Our rotating HD camera allows for inspection below, above, behind or infront of you as you maneuver throughout your dive. The handheld controller is based on a gaming pad, to greatly reduce the learning curve. It usually takes a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the controls, a few hours to be proficient at piloting and a weekend to be an expert. Our DTG2 and DTX2 are easy underwater ROVs. Watch this video to see just how easy it is.
The DTG2 ROV was born out of a desire to have an underwater robot for our boat. What we didn’t realize was how our innovative design would change the ROV marketplace. With lithium ion batteries inside the ROV, you don’t need to bring a generator or other top-side boxes with you. The control center is handheld and intuitive, providing all the functionalities: a superbright screen (4 times brighter than your laptop), as well as a quick video out port to record, or output, your dive to a larger screen. You can even deploy our units within 30 seconds!
TOP NOTCH CUSTOMER SERVICE
We’re Canadian. We believe in doing things right, and if for some reason something goes wrong, we’re there to say we’re sorry and make it right. Unlike other ROV manufacturers, we don’t have “service hours”; we are available when you need us. A senior ROV team member is only an email or phone call away. When you buy a mini ROV from Deep Trekker, you buy the team, the ideas, the vision, and the support. From joining expeditions to providing spare parts at a reasonable cost, we aim to be a part of your teams, and part of your journey.
With a little clever engineering and the help of gravity, we rotate the ROV outer shell and thrusters while gravity holds down the internal semi-circle weighted frame, so our main thrusters can rotate a complete 180 degrees to easily perform lateral movement. This allows the ROV to drive straight up and down, side to side, forwards, backwards – all using the same thrusters. Some call it magic, but it’s something you will instantly understand when you see it in action, watch this short video clip to see for yourself.
For a long time, remotely operated vehicles were only available to large companies with big enough budgets, but we believe the only way we’ll start to understand our oceans is if we can investigate under the water. That is why we pride ourselves on providing the most rugged system for an affordable price. We provide solutions that are meant to take a beating, but not break the bank.
