Imagine swimming amidst turtles, dolphins, rays, and breathtaking reefs without getting soaked, or even moving an arm. Now, this is possible in not just your dreams, but in reality exclusively at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru courtesy of DeepFlight Adventures. By Radhika Sikaria
In a world’s first, DeepFlight Adventures recently launched a three-person high-performance personal submarine at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. The Super Falcon 3S is an environment-friendly, battery-operated submersible that offers once-in-a-lifetime sub-aquatic dive in the Maldives’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Landaa Giraavaru’s Baa Atoll home.
Created in collaboration with leading water sports operator Ocean Group Pvt. Ltd, this submarine will allow you to encounter creatures such as turtles, sharks, dolphins and rays at a depth of up to 120 feet—all without getting wet. Once submerged, the domes virtually disappear, providing a 360—degree view of the underwater world. The electrics and acoustics have been designed to minimise emissions so not to disturb marine life, which means, you can swim alongside marine mammals such as dolphins!
A professional pilot controls the machine while a surface team tracks and monitors the submarine during each dive, staying in communication with the pilot via an underwater communications system. In the unlikely event of a power loss, the Super Falcon 3S will automatically float back to surface, thanks to the positive buoyancy and a patented thrust and lift system.
Know what all this means? It means that all you have to do is pre-book through Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru or Ocean Group for USD 1,500 (+ 12 percent GST) per flight for up to a maximum of two passengers. The excursion will last about one hour from boarding to flying underwater and disembarkation. To sign up, children must be aged above seven-years-old and taller than four-feet, while adults must be less than 6.4 feet and should not weigh more than 120 kilograms.
