Tourists can now explore the oceans depths from the comfort of a luxury cruise-submarine.

Made by the Netherlands-based firm U-Boat Worx, these private touring submarines can hold 5-9 people and dive as deep as 3,740 feet.



The submersibles have been designed with rotating interiors to give passengers the best panoramic views regardless of the direction the vessel is traveling.

Battery-operated, the u-boats can operate for up to 12 hours on a single charge with no impact on the marine environment.
