Teens 4 Oceans – Bahia Honda Underwater Camera. The Goliath Grouper Project was teens4oceans first “Whale Project”, a venture chartered by Kent Denver School in Denver, Colorado.
For over five years, Teens4Oceans has been developing new technologies for bringing live underwater webcams to the public. Students have participated in a number of T4O sponsored trip to various locations around the globe. The state of the art technologies used by Teens4Oceans are developed by Wild Goose Imaging (WGI), an underwater imaging and technology company based in Boulder, Colorado. WGI has allowed students involved with T4O to be part of the engineering process and the development of camera and communication gear. Below are links to the various live feeds from camera systems deployed in a few of our Large Marine Ecosystems. If you trying to view the webcam streams on a Mac, you need the Flip4Mac plugin.

Bahia Honda Camera: This cam is positioned in twenty feet of water on a concrete piling of a bridge in the Florida Keys. It is COMPLETELY powered by wind and sun. It was installed by the teens4oceans crew in December 2008, and was recently reinstalled by a group of 11 students at the end of June 2009.
The Cayman Islands camera is situated just inside the fringe reef, 952 meters from the dock at Ocean Frontiers Dive Resort. The webcam is powered by the sun and the video stream is a wireless link from a floating platform.
