Fly the Big Blue

Buckle up for one of the most immersive travel experiences of your life. This is ‘underwater flight’- arguably one of the globe’s most unique and naturally spellbinding new adventures. Launching for summer 2018 as a world exclusive at Four Seasons Maldives, Landaa Giraava, this is the first super high-end three-person submarine.

Expertly engineered by the subaquatic pioneers at DeepFlight Adventures, this is no ordinary sub. State of the art technology, lightweight high-strength composites and a super efficient electric powertrain deliver unprecedented speed, range and maneuverability to explore the ocean. Can’t picture it? Visualize a sub/luxury private jet hybrid with first-class leg-room and an overhead 360 ° view and you’re bang on. Brand new to the company’s 3-model-strong fleet is the Super Falcon 3S, its most sophisticated sub to date. This is your subaquatic carriage to ‘fly’ through the exotic marine life indigenous to the Maldivian Baa Atoll.

Sensitive to both the marine biodiversity that surround it and its carbon footprint, the Super Falcon 3S is fast, clean, and quiet. Featuring DC drivetrain, an underwater lithium/iron/phosphate battery pack, 40V system voltage and low electric signature, it is completely safe around larger marine animals. Plus, the sub’s directional engineering means pilots can effortlessly tailor the subaquatic trip to meet guest’s personal preferences. So, if high-octane travel is your thing take an exhilarating flight over reefs and shipwrecks. Prefer a more languid pace? No problem; a slow cruise through the marine life is both tranquil and mesmeric.

Simply sit back and let your driver take you and your partner on a turquoise-hued journey at 100 metres (330ft) below the surface of the Indian Ocean. The location is exceptional; the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Four Seasons, Landaa Giraavru is a truly unspoiled wilderness in the most marine-life rich waters in the Maldives.

Home to the world’s largest population of manta rays and the only full-time manta ray research project in the atoll, the Maldivian Manta Ray Project (MMRP), this is the place to see them in abundance. And, highest in numbers between June and October, when plankton levels in the waters peak, now is the time to visit. Two manta ray hotspots are Hanifaru Bay and Bathalaa and both are within a short ride from the Four Seasons, Landaa Giraavaru. Spinner dolphins and sea turtles are also local marine inhabitants here.

Take some time out and visit this luxury remote island hideaway, known for its world-class Landaa Spa with its passion for Ayurvedic therapies and commitment to the preservation of coral reefs and sea turtle rehabilitation.
