Seabourn Expedition Submarines


Discover the Wonders that Wait Under the Waterline in Seabourn’s Luxurious New Expedition Submarines

Consider it the ultimate luxury perk on the ultimate luxury expedition ships: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the wonders of the ocean floor in the comfort of Seabourn’s custom submarines.

The deeper you explore beneath the ocean’s surface, the more unique the scenery becomes, and the more secrets the sea reveals, from incredible sunken shipwrecks to stunning coral reefs to unique marine wildlife normally hidden from human view.

The only way to experience this otherworldly realm is by submarine, and at Seabourn our exacting standards for comfort and luxury mean these undersea explorations take place in custom-built submarines crafted to be the best at the sea.

Seabourn Expedition Submarine

Each environmentally friendly, battery-powered sub carries just seven people — six guests, three each in two clear acrylic spheres — plus the highly trained pilot guiding the journey. The intimate and innovative new exploration vehicles are capable of diving to depths of 300 meters (984 feet) offering passengers an awe-inspiring perspective of the marine world just outside. Thanks to undisturbed and undistorted views in virtually all directions you’ll come face-to-face with the wonders that lie below the waterline.

Not only will passengers be kept dry and comfortable while the submarine dives under the sea, in keeping with the ultra-luxury experience found on Seabourn, subs are outfitted with custom-embroidered leather upholstery, a Bluetooth stereo system, air conditioning, and champagne chiller so you can toast your extraordinary journey.

To memorialize your time under the sea, the subs are outfitted with a high-tech, 4K underwater video camera system that will capture your underwater experience. The videos will be screened in the Discovery Center for workshops and conversations with guests that are led by marine biologist or oceanographer Expeditions leaders.

This is truly the adventure of a lifetime. Experience it for yourself when Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit set sail for breathtaking locations and remote destinations in the Arctic and Antarctica, as well as in the CaribbeanCentral and South America.
