Our History

Founded in the mid-1990s, Atlantis Sea Colony (ASC) traces its origins to a visionary moment experienced by Brendon Traxler. Inspired by a fervent passion for the ocean and buoyed by childhood influences such as Jacques Cousteau specials and television series like SeaQuest DSV, Brendon envisioned a future where humanity thrived beneath the waves. Despite the limitations of pre-internet era resources, Brendon diligently pursued knowledge on underwater habitats, laying the groundwork for ASC’s pioneering endeavors.

Entering the new millennium, Brendon leveraged emerging online platforms, including early chat groups and email networks, to connect with like-minded individuals who shared his vision. The establishment of a Geocities website marked ASC’s early foray into the digital realm, solidifying its presence in the underwater exploration community for nearly two decades.

Driven by a commitment to innovation and feasibility, ASC’s design philosophy evolved from speculative sci-fi concepts to practical, adaptable structures. Central to ASC’s mission has always been the aspiration to unveil the ocean’s wonders to humanity, transcending mere habitation to embrace broader opportunities in business and environmental advocacy.

Our Focus

The ocean, with its serene beauty and untapped mysteries, stands as humanity’s final frontier on Earth. At Atlantis Sea Colony, we recognize the imperative to approach our underwater odyssey with reverence and responsibility. Through firsthand immersion in the oceanic realm, we believe individuals will develop a profound appreciation for its delicate ecosystems, fostering a collective commitment to preservation and sustainability.

Central to our vision is the creation of underwater habitats that prioritize comfort, safety, and accessibility. Our aim is to replicate terrestrial living conditions beneath the waves, ensuring seamless transitions for inhabitants and visitors alike. At ASC, we envision a future where underwater living is not only feasible but also enriching, empowering individuals to embrace a new dimension of sustainable living.

We welcome individuals from all backgrounds to contribute their expertise and passion to our shared mission. Whether through active participation in our online forums, social media engagement, or financial support as Patreon members, every contribution propels us closer to realizing our vision of a thriving underwater civilization.
