Uber is Expanding to Submarine Rideshares with “scUber”
For non-diving travelers who want to see all the treasures the Great Barrier Reef has to offer, Uber is making dreams come true. The company, in partnership with Queensland, Australia, is now servicing the world’s largest coral reef system via submersible.
According to the news release, scUber promises to be a “once-in-a-lifetime experience… riders will gain exclusive access to the world’s largest ecosystem, renowned as a biodiverse playground, rich in marine life and offering remarkable underwater experiences.”
The company will take 20 dives between May 27 and June 18 . The $3000 ride includes a helicopter trip to and from the reef for two people plus an hour ride on the scUber submarine through one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. You’ll get to see incredible marine life like giant clams while speeding through the sweet Queensland ocean.
The passengers will be maximum taken to a depth of 30 m (which is the depth reached by advance level scuba divers) where they can marvel at the untouched beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.
The best part about this magical underwater experience is that it does not have any negative impact on the reef. The submarine is battery powered and carries 2 riders and the pilot.
Get ready for the most expensive Uber Ride of your life, and trust us when we say, you won’t regret it!
