Four Seasons Maldives unveils new submarine experience
DeepFlight Adventures, the producer of the world’s highest performance personal submarine, has announced the launch of its most advanced model yet, the super Falcon 3S, at Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru.
In a world exclusive,DeepFlight Adventures will take up to two guests on a once-in-a-lifetime sub-aquatic ‘dive’ exploration of the Maldives’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Landaa Giraavaru’s Baa Atoll home.
With a professional pilot at the controls, passengers will be able to skim over coral formations, fly through shoals of brightly coloured fish and encounter myriad marine life as they explore the Maldivian waters down to a depth of 37 meters.
Once submerged, a personal pressurised and air-conditioned cockpit will provide a 360-degree view of the underwater world.
Additionally, with safety as a number one priority, its flight-inspired design allows the submarine to glide effortlessly over reefs and cruise alongside marine mammals like dolphins, turtles and manta rays.
The pilot narrates each dive with real-time commentary, educating and inspiring guests about the wonders of the underwater ecosystem whilst a surface team tracks and monitors the submarine during each dive, staying in communication with the pilot via an underwater communications system.
The submarine has also been designed with the environment in mind—its electric and acoustic emissions have been minimised so as not to disturb marine life, and it will never land on the seabed or reefs.
Brought to the Maldives in collaboration with leading watersports operator, Ocean Group Pvt. Ltd, the Super Falcon 3S represents the pinnacle of personal submarine technology—an environmentally friendly, battery-operated submersible that offers an unparalleled underwater experience.
