Whale Submarine – A Comfortable Way to Observe Marine Life
Whale watching has become a favourite excursion opted for by many tourists. Though the success of whale watching depends on the location and the climate of the area, this does not deter many from embarking on a voyage if and whenever they are in a destination that is famous for such spotting. For instance, in Hermanus, South Africa, Cape Naturaliste in Western Austria and Bahia Solano and Nuqui in Colombia, whale watching is much more than a leisure activity for it has a burgeoning popularity which has contributed significantly to the income of the area.
At Maldives island resorts, whale watching is done differently with the utilisation of a submarine for this purpose. Instead of boarding a boat or a ship, guests staying in resorts such as Maafishivaru Maldives have the option of boarding a submarine. Ideal for tourists afraid of diving or amateur divers as well as children, whale submarine offers patrons a new way of viewing the mesmerizing nature of the world that quietly lurks beneath the calm blue ocean surface.
Though it is known as a ‘Whale Submarine’, this particular excursion is actually one that provides patrons the opportunity to observe life on a coral reef rather than specifically watch whales. As there are several dives daily, guests can choose a time convenient for them, make the necessary bookings and be picked up by a boat that will transport them to the diving location. Once aboard the submarine, patrons will be submerged around thirty five metres and have the opportunity to observe underwater marine life such as lionfish, surgeonfish, snapper, unicorn fish as well as anemone fish in the safety and dry environment of the submarine.
The underwater experience lasts forty five minutes and it is, indeed, time well spent for guests with a thirst to observe marine life in a comfortable manner.
