Our mission is to connect the world's oceans to power a more sustainable future.
Why oceans?
The oceans cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface. They drive our weather, power global trade, and are the backbone of coastal communities worldwide. By connecting the world’s oceans, we empower science, society, and industry to be stewards for the sea, and help make a more sustainable future possible for our planet.

Where Sofarers come from
What Sofarers are saying
"There is so much we don't know about the ocean! It is exciting to be at a company that is working to both uncover its mysteries and protect it."
"Awesome people, world-changing mission, groundbreaking technology!"
"I love seeing vessels that we are routing leave San Francisco right out our back door! I commute from South Bay, so the location of the office is the perfect distance from Cal Train. You also can't beat seeing the bay right outside, along with some seals that say hello!"
