Airbnb’s list of trending destinations gave us plenty of dreamy vacay ideas for this year, but we’re going to have to add another to our travel bucket-list, because now you can actually head under the sea in a Blue Planet II vessel.
Anyone who watched the BBC wildlife documentary series that premiered this month will know that a whole new world awaits beneath the waves. With its gorgeous scenery and mysterious creatures, diving underwater is an experience unlike any other.
And now fans can be a part of that incredible adventure.
“BBC Worldwide brings you the opportunity to spend three days and two nights onboard the Alucia, a world-leading oceanic research and exploration vessel used in the filming of Blue Planet II, owned and operated by ocean exploration pioneer OceanX,” the listing notes. “You will join an active research trip in the the Bahamas, where you will make the ship your home and explore the mysteries of the ocean in one of the Alucia’s two submersibles.” So cool!
While you’re in this super snazzy submersible, “you and your submarine pilot will explore the waters off of Cape Eleuthera, one of the most biologically diverse areas of the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way you are sure to see a magical menagerie of underwater creatures, including some species of fish that make the island waters their home.”
If you’re interested in this unusual experience, the full listing has even more info. You can’t actually book it at the moment, but you can enter for a chance to win a stay for two on the Blue Planet II vessel from April 4 to April 8. Good luck!
