A news it is and indeed an exciting one!
Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru has become the first place to launch a 3-people personal submarine excursion in one of the most advanced model and technology of submarines - the Super Falcon 3S.
This once-in-a-lifetime sub-aquatic ‘dive’ experience accommodates two guests at a time and provides an exotic opportunity to explore the Maldives’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Landaa Giraavaru’s Baa Atoll home.
Guests can skim over coral formations, fly through shoals of brightly coloured fish, encounter creatures such as turtles, sharks, dolphins and rays while exploring the Maldivian waters down to a depth of 120 feet (37 metres) – all without getting wet.
With a professional pilot at the controls, this submarine is an environmentally friendly, battery-operated submersible that offers unparalleled underwater "flying" from the safety, comfort and style of a personal pressurised and air-conditioned cockpit, with individual viewing domes. Once submerged, the domes virtually disappear, providing a 360-degree view of the underwater world while gliding effortlessly over reefs and cruises alongside marine mammals such as dolphins and others without really disturbing the marine life. The pilot narrates each dive with a real-time commentary, educating and inspiring guests about the wonders of the underwater ecosystem.
Redefining marine exploration, Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru is quite excited to be the first one to take steps towards bridging the gap between the world above the waves and the one that exists below for guests to understand why sustainability of all kinds of living beings are a necessity.
How long is this submarine excursion?
About one hour from boarding to flying underwater and disembarkation.
