Of all one hundred billion humans who have ever lived, not a single one has gone to live permanently undersea.

While we have had the technology to settle this vast, three dimensional domain for over half a century, it remains empty of outposts, colonies and cities - or even of a single settler. While its immense territory covers nearly three quarters of the globe, no one has ever gone there to stay.  In this book, Dennis Chamberland traces the history of the aquanaut from the first tentative 24 hour experiment in 1962 until today. Surprisingly, a careful reading of the record of humankind's penetration of the oceans reveals misdirected starts, misunderstandings of the human's capacity to adapt and, eventually, a great abandonment of the quest.

But now, Chamberland unveils a visionary strategy through a project called the Atlantica Expeditions with a fresh, new look at previous challenges that will soon open up the expansive undersea regions called Aquatica. Here will arrive 21st century pioneers, colonists and families who will become the first Aquaticans in what may yet prove to be the greatest human adventure in all of history.

Undersea Colonies was written to describe that ongoing process of carving out permanent human colonies and cities under the ocean’s surface. It also describes the potential of that vast area covering some 321 million cubic miles of which today, the permanent population is zero!

Soon, that will change. In short order, a small band of dedicated, highly intelligent and motivated humans will submerge beneath the surface of the great ocean that covers three quarters of our planet to live out their lives and never return to the shore. That is what the book Undersea Colonies is all about  It is their account.  It is the amazing, surprising story of a vast, incredibly powerful civilization that is about to change everything we think we know about humans and the future of our planet.   Undersea Colonies is the narrative of the sudden evolution of a new kind of human living out their lives in a beautiful, vast and incredible new world that is being created even now.
