Cutting edge robot submarines will be on show at a special event on Thursday 4 August at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport. The event Deep Sea Detectives will also allow children to meet divers and maritime archaeologists with their road show bus that showcases the work that is carried out at the bottom of the sea.

 Experts from Saab Seaeye, one of the leading suppliers of ROV's will be demonstrating the Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) during the event and allowing families to have the rare opportunity to have a go at navigating one. The ROV's are used in the offshore oil and gas industry, and also a number of the world's leading navies for security, salvage and diver support tasks.

Divers from the Nautical Archaeology Society and the Hampshire & IOW Maritime Archaeology Trust will also be onsite with their interactive road show bus that is crammed with family activities and quizzes. Children can also talk to the archaeologists about diving on submarine wrecks of the same vintage as the Museum's Holland I, the very first Royal Navy submarine that was wrecked for 69 years. There will also be opportunities for families to create their own wonderful watery scenes to take home.

Jackie Edelman, Events Organiser said," We are delighted to welcome the "deep sea detectives" that work on the wreck sites around our coast. Visitors will be amazed as the robot searches the murky waters for treasure. This will be an action packed day for everyone."

Deep Sea Detectives is a family event that is part of a summer holiday season of extra free activities being held every Thursday throughout August at the Submarine Museum in Gosport. The Museum is open every day and a visit includes a tour of the historic WWII era submarine - HMS Alliance with a submariner to hear his stories first hand about living beneath the waves. Visitors can also peer into the only surviving WW2 midget submarine, step inside the Royal Navy's first submarine Holland 1 and play as pirates in the Skull and Crossbones exhibition.
