Now, you can charter a submarine to explore sea surface!

Several clients have already chartered the submersible together with their own yacht. "They feel like real explorers when they are diving on unexplored sites 100 meters below the surface," said Charlotte Schroots of U-Boat Worx (UBW).

In fact, the submersibles have advantages over scuba diving by allowing the passengers to reach greater depths and stay underwater for extended time in a dry, relaxed, and spacious environment.

The submarines are powered by state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries that are capable of packing more than three times the energy. This ensures the submersibles to perform diving operations up to six hours, emitting zero pollution into the ocean, says the company.

It says that it will arrange the crew, all necessary support equipment, transportation to the desired destination and also accessories like high definition cameras, manipulator arms, lights and advanced tracking systems.

During consultation with UBW, the client will decide which submersible will fit the needs of the mission. The company also has several exclusive itineraries that can be suggested to clients unfamiliar with the underwater world.

The available submarines are the"C-Quester 3" and the "C-Explorer 2". The C-Quester 3 is a 3-person submersible and the C-Explorer 2 is a 2-person submersible based on a full 360-degree transparent pressure hull giving occupants the best unobstructed view possible.

Both vessels have a maximum operating depth of 100 meters and for comfort both are equipped with a powerful air conditioning system, says the company.
