BOSTON & VANCOUVER — Scenic Eclipse has revealed never-before-seen images of the interior design and technology developed for its Scenic Neptune submarine.
The Scenic Neptune is a U-Boat Worx Cruise Submarine custom-built for optimal sightseeing and capable of diving a depth of 300 metres with seating for up to six guests. Some of the key designs and features are:
- Up to eight dives per day at a speed of up to three knots
- Internal climate control and a surround sound music system with a guest-focused structure to facilitate the ease of boarding and disembarking
- Controls designed for ease of management with the standard UIS (U-Boat Worx Information System) and display all pertinent information to the pilot via a large touchscreen monitor
- Seats mounted on platforms that swivel 280 degrees to allow near panoramic viewing without the need to turn the submarine
- Strong exterior lights showcase the hidden colors of the deep as well as details of wrecks and other underwater sights
- Multiple safety features are incorporated at every stage and include features such as automatically resurfacing in the unlikely event of a power outage
“Guests will embark on an awe-inspiring adventure to the underwater world. Volcanic pinnacles, sheer walls, majestic wrecks, a wide diversity of marine life and beautiful reefs lie waiting to be discovered,” said Scenic Neptune pilot Remy Izendoreen.
The first sailing of Scenic Eclipse will be Aug. 15, 2019, an Iceland & Atlantic Canada sailing from Reykjavik to Quebec, followed by sailings down the eastern seaboard of North America. Scenic Neptune activities depend upon the conditions, incur additional costs, and are subject to availability.
