Dolphin Geophysical

From the birth of Dolphin Geophysical in December 2010 we have quickly built a worldwide organisation. We have equipped our vessels with the best, industry recognised equipment available, and manned the vessels with hand-picked crews to operate efficiently and to the highest standards in the industry. Within just six months we had four vessels in operation, the Polar Explorer (2D), Artemis Atlantic (2D), Artemis Arctic (3D) and the powerful high capacity 3D vessel Polar Duke - our flagship vessel. In April 2012 we will take delivery of Polar Duchess, sister-ship to the Duke, and in 2013 will take delivery of another large 3D vessel further increasing our presence in the high end sector.
