Visit us at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show

In late September, DeepFlight will travel back to Port Hercules on the French Riviera for the Monaco Yacht Show. For those attending the iconic event from 28th September to 1st October, make sure to visit us on Quai Ranier 1er, Booth QR4. We’ll fill you in on the latest DeepFlight news, including the launch of our newest submarine for underwater adventure.

Opening the Oceans for Underwater Tourism

Continuing to deliver on our vision of opening the oceans for adventure and exploration, DeepFlight will introduce our newest submarine at the Monaco Yacht Show. Super Falcon 3S adds a third cockpit, interior upgrades to enhance passenger comfort, and a second thruster to improve maneuverability. The sub will be classed by Lloyds Register and certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Three air-conditioned cockpits allow two passengers to sit comfortably, observing underwater life, and experiencing the unique thrill of flying thru deep blue waters, while the pilot dives the Super Falcon 3S to depths of up to 400 feet (120 meters)!

DeepFlight will also announce DeepFlight Adventures, piloted excursions in some of the world's most beautiful oceans and seas. Not everyone can own a submarine, but now everyone can take a dive in one! Imagine flying alongside large schools of fish, dolphins and whales; skimming above a reef or shipwreck; or diving nose-down along a sheer vertical ocean wall! DeepFlight Adventures will be available to adventure and resorts tourists around the world starting in 2017.

DeepFlight Expedition in Papua New Guinea

The DeepFlight team of operations manager Joshua Glovin (AKA “Triton“), electrical engineer John Cannon (AKA  “Freerider”), and pilot Erika Bergman (AKA “Echo“) have returned from a successful expedition in Papua New Guinea. DeepFlight partnered with Rainbowfish Ocean Technology to take tourists on underwater adventures in the DeepFlight Dragon. M/V Zhang Jian, Rainbow’s mothership, served as home base for our team and Dragon submarine.

Working with Rainbowfish, the DeepFlight team took more than a dozen delighted guests on dives in the waters off the coast of Salamaua, on the east side of the main island of Papua New Guinea. Guests were treated to incredible views of the Yokohama Maru. Located close to 200 feet (61 meters) below sea level, the ship is the largest diveable wartime wreck in PNG. Built in 1912, the Yokohama Maru was sunk by US Navy Carrier planes in 1942. Today the immense ship remains upright, showcasing coral growth and a ghostly appearance – ideal for sightseeing from our Dragon submarine!

A Visit to Laucala Island

John Cannon continued his international journey when he joined COO Bob Chamberlain (AKA “Sales Guy”), and Chief Scientist Dr. Kip Laws (AKA “Outlaw”) at the beautiful Laucala Island in Fiji.  The exclusive resort, owned by Red Bull co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz, has been offering guests spectacular dives in their DeepFlight Super Falcon submarine since 2014. The DeepFlight team ensured the sub was working optimally, providing guests amazing underwater adventures amongst turtles, moray eels, and other marine life in the tropical waters of Fiji. Some of the more adventurous guests are treated to inside/outside loops as they fly underwater in the Super Falcon!
