Scenic Neptune Submarine First Look

First look at Scenic Eclipse’s ‘Scenic Neptune’ submarine

With the launch of Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yachts, just around the corner, the excitement surrounding its maiden voyage is so thick, you could cut it with a knife. Scenic Eclipse sets off on its first sailing – an Iceland and Atlantic Canada cruise from Reykjavik to Quebec – on 15 August 2019. Boasting 6-star luxury that combines a wealth of world-class facilities with the opportunity for unrivalled exploration, Scenic Eclipse is the ultimate coming together of luxury and discovery. 
While Scenic Eclipse’s state-of-the-art Airbus EC-130-T2 helicopters* will give guests access to unparalleled aerial views of astounding sites like the Norwegian fjords, the ship’s U-Boat Worx Cruise Submarine 7* promises to reveal the magical mysterious world of the deep blue seas. Guests can look forward to embarking on an awe-inspiring adventure that will unveil kaleidoscopic coral reefs, majestic ruins, and a wide diversity of marine life. 

To add to the fever pitch, Scenic recently revealed the details of the technology and interior build of its custom designed Scenic Neptune submarine. With a seating capacity of six excluding the pilot, the underwater craft can dive up to an incredible 300 metres, about 1,000 feet. For seamless visibility, Scenic Neptune’s acrylic spheres are constructed from a material which has the same refraction index as seawater, which means the barrier visually disappears underwater, providing a very open and spacious feeling.

Scenic Neptune is equipped to handle up to 8 dives each day and boasts internal climate control as well as a surround sound audio system for the most comfortable dive. The craft is specially commissioned to meet international design standards, offering unmatched comfort with maximum legroom and headroom, without compromising on style. 

Getting in and out of the submarine has been made remarkably effortless through a convenient deck and optimum human engineering such as ergonomically designed handles. Once inside, guests will seat themselves in one of the two three-person pods, one each at the front and back, and enjoy spectacular views of their complete surrounding from chairs that are mounted on a 280-degree swivelling platform. What’s more, the craft is also fitted with strong exterior lights that will allow guests to take in every last detail of the underwater sights.

From sunken wrecks and vibrant tropical reefs to a sea floor teeming with life in Antarctica, Scenic Neptune is sure to provide guests an unforgettable ride as the craft glides through the ocean’s three-dimensional environment.
