‘Finding Nemo’ from the comfort of a minisubBack
© Reuse this Description
A subsurface observation vessel for recreational use, ecotourism and scientific observations.
South African marine attractions are currently being exploited for ecotourism by elementary means, mostly by ski-boats operating along the coast. As a method of sea transport, ski-boats are not suitable for a large part of the population due to their age, medical conditions, infirmities or disabilities.
The Minisub is a vessel constructed specifically for use as a surface-floating, underwater observation platform, consisting of a submerged cabin capable of seating 14 people who will be able to observe subsurface scenery and marine life in the safety and comfort of an air-conditioned vessel, without having to face the dangers associated with diving. With Minisub, the marine attractions will be made accessible to the general public without the restrictions associated with a ski-boat.
