A dream summer holiday destination is not complete without swimming and diving, but in order to do that, you need proper equipment. This is especially the case if you want something more than simple snorkeling in shallow waters.
This is where Sublue comes in, a company that has managed to build the perfect gadget to help you navigate the depths with ease. This light underwater exploring apparatus is an amazing tool to have on your vacation. It is called the WhiteShark Mix underwater scooter, and it promises lots of fun and a whole new ad unique perspective of the colorful underwater environment that resides under the already familiar surface.
What is the WhiteShark scooter?
Sublue Whiteshark Underwater Scooter is a cool and compact underwater scooter that has two propellers, one on each side. You are allowed to carry it in the airplane cabin, so do not worry about those kind of protocols on your way to the sea. There are two ways to use this handy gadget.
When it is set to the floater option, it will maintain a positive buoyancy and allow you snorkeling experiences like never before. However, this is hardly the best way of using it. The real deal is fully exploring the ocean depth and its hidden universe. Simply remove the floater part and add dive away in a new, life changing adventure while holding it in front of you.
Design and Specifications
This underwater scooter weighs a total of 3 and a half kilograms, or around 7.7 pounds. Sublue packs it in a box that also includes a lightweight bag in which you can carry the scooter safely wherever you go. When you finally arrive to your desired destination and want to take it for a spin, you will have an amazing battery life of no less than 10,000 mAh, enough for at least 20 minutes of awesome underwater fun. The two propellers provide 8 kgf of thrust, while the top speed is 1.5 meters per second, more than enough to keep up with sea life like giant manta rays and all the colorful fish.
It was mentioned earlier that the device is quite compact. The measurements stand at 18.3 inches in length, 9 inches in width, and 9 inches in height. You can go up to 40 meters deep with it, or 131 feet, and there is a possibility to attach a camera to it, which sadly is not included and comes at extra cost. The mount is however compatible with most of the usual action cameras like the famous GoPro, so if you already have one, you can enjoy the sea environment while recording amazing photos and videos of underwater ecosystems.
How to use it?
When it comes to operating this neat device, WhiteShark has been designed to be held with both hands at all times, so that the diver achieves full balance and control during the activity. For a journey longer that 20-30 minutes, we advise having multiple batteries on standby. When you are having this much fun, this amount of time flies by incredibly quickly.
Therefore, be ready to swap batteries and never let the fun times end prematurely. Maintenance is crucial with this device, and the company advises washing your underwater scooter after each trip, especially if you used it in salty water. It has a corrosive effect on the propellers without which the gadget is useless.
Hence, you will have to care for it carefully. The price tag attached to this device is $699 and it is available for purchase on Amazon. Several stylish and cool colors are available, Arctic White, aqua Blue, and Space Blue. Your summer vacations will never be the same with this amazing underwater scooter.
