Travelling to the Maldives has always been a surreal experience for travellers, and now it’s going to get even more exciting. The Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru is the first place that’s offering a personal submarine tour with The DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S. Designed to accommodate 2 passengers and a pilot, the submarine takes you on a sub-aquatic journey of adventure.
“These submarine excursions redefine marine exploration and bridge the gap between the world we see above the waves and the one that exists below,” Regional Vice President Armando Kraenzlin said in a statement.
Passengers can skim over unique coral formations; fly through shoals of colourful fishes; spot sea creatures such as dolphins, sharks, rays; and all of it without getting wet. The environment-friendly, battery-operated submarine is brought to the Maldives in collaboration with a renowned watersports operator, Ocean Group.
As you can see in the video, once it is submerged in water, the glass domes virtually disappear, which eventually offers a 360-degree view of the underwater world.
