Randy Prickett, Pilot/USN Diver 1st Class: Randy Prickett joined the Ocean Exploration team through an informal collaboration between Ocean Exploration and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institution (MBARI). MBARI is a highly respected organization, well known for not only their major contribution to the exploration of Monterey Bay but also the development of some of the most advanced and innovative technologies used in the understanding of the ocean sciences. As a valued member of MBARI, Randy is an extremely talented pilot, a highly skilled technician, and a veteran of many ROV operations where science and exploration demand the highest level of expertise. His absolute can-do attitude and his rapid grasp of complex systems is attributed to not only to his nine years in the United States Navy, operating and managing complex mixed gas diving operations but also his 13+ years at MBARI as a pilot and systems expert. Randy is one of our pilots for this Indonesia expedition and has proven himself invaluable in the mentoring process of some of our younger and less experienced crew. When not on assignment for Ocean Exploration, Randy resides in Soledad, California.
