DeepFlight : Explore where few have gone before
After 45 years experience developing the world’s most advanced underwater vehicles, the Fiji resort is the first to offer you underwater travel thanks to its DeepFlight winged submersible. Step inside to the ultimate in exploration.
DeepFlight winged submersibles are designed and built by Hawkes Ocean Technologies, creator of the world’s most advanced manned and unmanned underwater vehicles. Founded in 1995 by renowned ocean engineer and visionary Graham Hawkes, the company operates with a singular objective: to unlock the world’s oceans to human access.
The two-person submersible allows island guests to dive deep into the pristine waters of the South Pacific Ocean. As the pilot in a boundless sea, do whatever comes to mind: do a barrel roll, go inverted, dive straight down. State-of-the-art technology, combined with lightweight, high strength composites and a patented wingeddesign, provides unparalleled speed, range and agility. In addition, DeepFlight underwater craft are always positively buoyant, meaning they automatically float back to the ocean’s surface.
“What’s down there?” Hop in your DeepFlight and find out. Ride along with pods of dolphins. Follow a whale. Explore an ancient shipwreck. See parts of our planet that no human has ever witnessed. And with plenty of life support and battery power, there’s lots of time for discovery.
The 1,500ft plunge in the 21ft long futuristic-looking craft can cost anyone a cool $1,700 but who never dreamt of flying through the ocean ?
