Founded in 1904 to promote exploration “by all means possible,” The Explorers Club is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of field exploration and scientific inquiry. Our members are leading pioneers in oceanography, mountaineering, archaeology, and the planetary and environmental sciences.
From vast ocean depths to the frontiers of outer space, THE EXPLORERS JOURNAL offers first-hand reporting from those pushing the limits of knowledge and human endurance.
“In order to attain
one must attempt
— Miguel de Cervantes (1547–1616)
