Panama, Guna Yala (San Blas)

PANAMA TRAILER OXT from Marczak Film on Vimeo.

Ocean X Team has come one step closer to finalize an agreement with the indigenous people of Guna Yalas in Panama. An unforgettable meeting with the local chiefs (sailas) in the area of Caledonia (New Caledonia), secured support for a collaboration between the Guna Yalas and the Ocean X Team. The project will over time expand over the whole coast of Guna Yala (San Blas), which is about 200km long and consists of about 300 tropical islands. The agreement which is a win-win solution will give Ocean X Team the rights to search for shipwrecks in the region. Ocean X Team will help the Guna Yalas with marketing and to bring Eco-tourism to their tropical paradise. However, during the visit some environmental issues were notified by the Ocean X Team, like plastic waists along the shores. Ocean X Team will best to our ability agree to help the Guna Yalas solving these kind of environmental problems. The whole project will be documented through a TV-documentary series.

It is to day 101 years ago, 18 Russian Imperial sailors lost their lifes in a tragic accident when the submarine SOM collided with the Swedish s/s Ångermanland and sank to 88 meters depth. It happened early in the morning 23 May, off the small coastal town of Grisslehamn, located at the Swedish east coast.

A cooperation between Ixplorer and Ocean X Team lead to that SOM was relocated in July 2015.

Relatives to the crew will think of Them to day.

“O Father hear our prayer to Thee,
From your humble servants beneath the sea.

In the depth of ocean oft we stray,
So far from night, so far from day.

We would ask your guiding light to glow,
To make our journey safe below.

Please oft times grant us patient mind,
Then ‘ere the darkness, won’t us blind.

We seek thy protection from the deep,
And grant us peace whene’er we sleep.

Of our homes and loved ones far away,
We ask you care for them each day.

Until we surface once again,
To drink the air and feel the rain.

We ask your guiding hand to show,
A safe progression, sure and slow.

Dear Lord please hear our prayer to Thee,
From your humble servants beneath the sea.”
