Triton for Film & TV

Producers, Directors and Artists are all making use of Triton for their underwater filming needs. Explore some of these productions below.


Triton’s submersibles offer the  flexibility, manoeuvrability and longevity required for the most demanding of shoots. They are also capable of reaching depths far beyond that of a diver.

Triton submersibles have been used by filmmakers to capture some of the world’s most incredible underwater footage. Specialized equipment racks, or skids, containing broadcast quality cameras and high-power LED lighting rigs, transform Triton submersibles into the ultimate filming platform.

Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough, BBC

In 2016, David Attenborough returned to our screens in a landmark series about the Great Barrier Reef. In the first episode, Attenborough descends beneath the waves at night in a Triton submersible, the first of its kind to visit the reef.

A Triton 3300/3 equipped with an array of specialist lighting and camera equipment was used to capture the extraordinary footage for the BBC.

Attracting Giant Squid, NHK, BBC & Discovery

In 2013 the first ever footage of the giant squid in its natural habitat was captured by scientists using a Triton 3300/3 submersible. The Triton was able to film the incredible encounter for 18 minutes as the squid descended from 2,000 to 2,700 feet.

Bioluminescence in the Solomon Islands, AMNH

In 2013 researchers from the American Museum of Natural History set off for the Solomon Islands to discover more about bioluminescence with a Triton submersible.
