Richard Bransons Submarine for Tourists

Private Underwater submarine for tourists on Necker Island provided from Richard Branson.

The underwater plane that you see in the image above is the latest addition to Richard Branson’s luxury fleet. If you are in need of a good vacation, how about a trip under the sea? I don’t think you are going to see any mermaids but I’m pretty sure you are going to see some good stuff. If your vacation destination are the British Virgin Islands,Necker Island to be more exact, you can ride this under water beauty for only UD$$25,000 a week for the submarine but that is only if you are willing to cough up $300,000 for a one-week stay on Necker.

If you are interested, you will not be able to enjoy this ridiculously expensive ride until February 20th and you can ride this sub with a friend, and the pilot of course. You can either take the plunge from land, or from a boat and experience for yourself how the plane uses  the downward pressure on its wings to fly through the water for up to two hours at a time, while an open cockpit will give riders a 360-degree view.

Your underwater adventure will only go at 2 to 5 nautical miles per hour and dive more than 100 feet. You will will be able to fly the Necker Nymph while chartering the Necker Belle, Branson’s 105-foot yacht, or the submarine can be launched from shore. Necker Belle is rented out to guests for $88,000 a week, bringing the full Necker Island experience to more than $400,000 per week. There are some things that are going to need to do such as  follow SCUBA procedures and be trained or be accompanied by a certified pilot before entering the underwater plane. SCUBA tanks are mounted in the submarine and passengers must wear masks while underwater.

The plane sub is even environmentally friendly since it ha positive buoyancy which prevents the sub from landing on a reef, and its low light and noise emissions ensure the fragile ocean ecosystems remain undisturbed. So if you decide on February 20th to go on a ride,remember to comment on your experience and tell us how much fun you are having.
