Sea lovers will soon have another way to explore the world beneath the ocean around the Maldives. Ocean Group, a provider of watersport activities in the Maldives has just announced a partnership with underwater flight manufacturer DeepFlight Adventures to launch the DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S Submarine, the first three-man submarine available in the area.

The submarine is set to be launched at a luxury resort in the Maldives later this year, with its maiden journey in the fourth quarter of 2017. Currently, the only methods of underwater exploration in the Maldives are scuba diving and snorkeling.

A trained pilot will accompany two guests in the submarine. Through the acrylic canopies, guests will be able to get a 360-degree view of the ocean from their individual cockpits. The submarine is also equipped with integrated video-capturing ability, enabling guests to relive their experiences after the journey.

Adam Wright, Managing Director of DeepFlight Adventures said the company was delighted to be working with Ocean Group to bring underwater submarine excursions to the Maldives. “We believe DeepFlight Adventures offers a great opportunity for hotels to differentiate their properties by offering their guests the ability to access the beautiful underwater world right from the resorts,” he said.

Hussain Zahid, Founder and Managing Director of Ocean Group said, “We truly believe that resort tourism, in general, will benefit from having this unique activity available for resort guests in the Maldives.” (asw)
