DEEPFLIGHT HAS PARTNERED with Shanghai-based company Rainbowfish Ocean Technology for underwater tourism. DeepFlight Adventures will offer submarine experiences at resorts and other locations starting next year.
“We are delighted to partner with Rainbowfish Ocean Technology who has the resources, experience and capabilities that will allow us to bring the DeepFlight experience to more people,” says DeepFlight CEO Adam Wright. “Our partnership with Rainbowfish enables us to offer unique submarine adventures, including resort-based dives, as well as offshore expeditions.”
Rainbowfish officials believe DeepFlight makes an excellent partner as it seeks to make underwater tourism a significant part of its business. “With the launch of our 4,800-tonne mothership MV Zhang Jian, our plans for the Rainbowfish 11000 full ocean depth manned submersible, and now the addition of DeepFlight submarines, this partnership makes us well-positioned to become a leading player in underwater tourism,” says Rainbowfish Chairman Dr Xin Wu, having recently completed a successful joint expedition with DeepFlight in Papua New Guinea.
DeepFlight also introduced its newest submarine DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S at the Monaco Yacht Show Sept 28-Oct 1. The model was designed to enable people to experience underwater flight and view amazing sealife from resorts, yachts, and other seaside locations.
The first resort locations Deepflight is looking to open are in Hawaii, the Maldives, the Caribbean and French Polynesia. It is expected that the first resort will begin operating next year.
