OceanGate, a luxury travel and ocean research submersible venture, today named Hayter Communications its public relations and social media agency of record.

OceanGate, based in Miami, Florida, is the owner and operator of manned and unmanned submersibles. The company is devoted to providing financially strapped scientists with submarines to further the world's understanding and preservation of marine habitat and artifacts.

“Oceans remain a complete mystery to mankind. They cover 75 percent of the Earth's surface yet less than 5 percent of the ocean floor has been mapped,” said Ryan Hayter, CEO of Hayter Comm. “OceanGate is a game changer in the marine expedition and research industry. They're opening the oceans to the public and to researchers. We are intent on showcasing the company's substantial growth in the coming years.”

OceanGate is the first submersible company to implement citizen science. The citizen pays for a life-changing immersive experience and researchers benefit from free ship time and access to manned submersibles for their field studies.

Currently OceanGate operates submersibles that dive to 285 meters (936 feet). The company will be announcing plans to develop two vessels available to public clients and scientists that will descend to 6,000 meters (19,685 feet) in the coming weeks.

“Hayter Communications has achieved great success in the science, technology and marine industries and we are excited to have the agency take the lead on OceanGate's public relations initiatives,” said Guillermo Söhnlein, co-founder of OceanGate. “Hayter's team consists of dedicated and inquisitive adventurers who harness a unique ability to translate technical details into laymen's terms. They are some of the most connected and well-liked people in the industry, and we're thrilled to have them representing our team.”

Hayter Communications is a full-service communications agency representing a myriad of A-list clients, including Helly Hansen, Smith Optics, K2 Skis & Snowboards, Ride Snowboards, Raleigh Bicycles, Diamondback Bicycles, Line Skis, POW Gloves, Ural Russian sidecar motorcycles, Zoot Sports, Richlite, and Corvus Energy, among other renowned brands.
