Exploring the world, one ocean at a time.

SV Seeker travels down the Arkansas River

The Sea Chest Foundation is a 501(C)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to operating, outfitting, maintaining and staffing water vessels for ocean research and other charitable causes.

We have been asked to assist with a research and recovery projects in the Lesser Antilles as well as the Atlantic shores and are in conversations with other research non-profits. wn addition, We have decided to expand our research projects and support to include the inland waterways.

We are currently looking to assist science teachers, universities and schools along the Mississippi River who are interested in learning more about our inland waters. If this is something you might be interested in, please email us at seachestfoundation@yahoo.com

We are currently in discussion with a group to be involved in mapping the ocean floor. We’re excited at the prospect of being to assist in that monumental project.

One of the vessels that we plan to use is SV Seeker who was built in Tulsa, OK, and made her land crawl to the Port of Catoosa in August, 2021. She made the journey down the MKARNS & Arkansas River to the Mississippi River and then south to the Gulf of Mexico. She has been performing sail trials but is getting closer to starting research. Currently Doug and Seeker are headed down the gulf coast of Florida. You can email Captain Doug Jackson at svseeker@ymail.com directly to find out how you can help with SV Seeker. Here’s a link to learn more about Doug Jackson and SV Seeker.

Other vessels will also be added to our fleet of support vessels and we are also accepting projects that can be performed on the shoreline.

We’ll release more information as the plans are finalized.
