Grand Cayman Submarines, Submersibles, Subs - or a Bubble... THE FACTS
Once upon a time... No, this is not imagination... this is real. Once upon a time a young man went on a submarine ride as a tourist on vacation, he sat in a submarine which was a long dark, damp tube with forty other people and tried to peer out through a tiny round window and struggled to see anything... and so he went beyond imagination as he dreamed of going under the sea in a Bubble... and the rest as we say is history... The Bubble Sub, the very first 360 degree submarine in the world was born. And it's here now waiting to take you beyond imagination... are you ready for it... are you really?
THE BUBBLE SUB - The Submarine of the future is here in Grand Cayman now
The bubble looks like glass but it is not... it is reinforced Perspex just like the canopy over the cockpit of a fighter jet and it is all around you. 360 degree visibility... imagine that... see everywhere and everything from a submarine, and you have questions don't you? like can it sink, can it go down and not come back up... that's imagination for you... the simple answer is NO...!!!
The Bubble Sub submarines are positively buoyant... that is to say they are lighter than the sea water they are in... so if the engine stops they will float upwards, naturally. You see the hardest part of driving the Bubble Sub is keeping it down below the surface and in order to do that we have external weights attached, also your pilot and guide is on the outside, he gets wet as you stay dry. Your pilot is a scuba diver and he can talk to you through an underwater communication system and you can talk to him and you will, as you will be full of questions like "What's that"?
BEYOND IMAGINATION IN A SUBMARINE
This is an experience that goes way beyond your imagination, you just have no idea what is awaiting you below the waves of Grand Cayman, below the Caribbean Sea, you have seen it on TV and in the movies, this is not Hollywood though or Disney World... this is the real ocean and you are in a real submarine. How deep can it go you ask?
The Grand Cayman Bubble Sub submarines are tested to 100's of feet but you will be on the bottom of the Caribbean sea at 50 feet, you will be cruising along a living Coral Reef where the very rocks are alive, just imagine that, living rocks. A Coral Reef is made up of billions of tiny creatures that live and die and in so doing they leave behind a calcium deposit or tiny skeleton we call Coral.
HOW MANY FISH IN THE SEA???
That is a dumb question to ask, but we get asked it all of the time. I think what the question is meant to say is how many species of fish are there. The answer to that is unknown as new species are still being discovered almost every day... maybe you will see something new, something never seen by human eyes before... who knows what is down there... it is beyond imagination... and you are in an alien world.
IS IT DEATHLY QUIET???
That is a good question, I put the deathly in just to stretch your imagination a bit further... NO! it is not quiet, the ocean is full of strange noises... fish talk to each other through clicks and squeaks. Who knows what they are saying about the strange alien creatures in the Bubble Sub Submarine. Sound travels through water many times faster than through the air, this means that you will not be able to tell from which direction a sound came from it also means the sound can be coming from a long way off, Whales can hear sounds over 1000's of miles.
WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WHEN YOU GO UNDER???
That is a very easy question to answer, It is like nothing you have ever imagined before, it really is...
