Scenic Eclipse to offer guests submarine excursions

Scenic Eclipse will offer guests the ultimate underwater experience on board Scenic Neptune - a U Boat Worx Cruise Submarine 7 - and unique access to some of nature’s most beautiful sites.

Capable of diving to a depth of 300 metres with seating for up to six guests, Scenic Neptune has been custom-built for optimal sightseeing of marine wonders.

From Greek underwater ruins to the kaleidoscopic coral reefs of the Caribbean, to witnessing whales, penguins, seals, walruses and other marine life in crystal clear polar waters – the adventures are endless.

Scenic founder, Glen Moroney, said: “Scenic has always sought to venture beyond the horizon and with our submarine we provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy unparalleled access to some of nature’s most beautiful marine environments.

“From inside Scenic Neptune, each guest will enjoy an uninterrupted view thanks to the strategic placement of all components and the use of an ultra-clear acrylic hull, expertly engineered to make you feel “at one” with the ocean.”

He added: “The sub is able to do from eight up to 12 dives per day, depending on the length of dive, giving as many guests as possible access to this unique opportunity.

“Because the cabin is pressurized, there is also no need for a slow ascent or descent.

“One of the thrills for guests is a fast, upward journey where they pop out from below the ocean with a splash.”

Scenic Neptune is designed to meet international noise standards, and to provide unmatched comfort, space and style, with maximum legroom and headroom while keeping overall weight and size to a minimum.

Internal climate control and a surround sound music system form part of the fine detailing, together with the optimum ergo dynamics to facilitate ease of boarding and disembarking.

The design consists of a three-person pod on the front and at the back of the sub for a total of six guests plus the pilot, who is located behind the guests.

The seats are mounted on a platform that can swivel 180 degrees to allow viewing from both sides of the submarine and strong exterior lights will allow guests to take in the colours and details of wrecks and other underwater sights.
