The Scenic Neptune, the Scenic Eclipse’s submarine, took guests on an underwater exploration in Stromness in South Georgia, the first time a passenger submersible has been given permission to dive at the location.
The cruise line has worked closely with the local authorities to give passengers a unique experience, as well as increase awareness and educate guests about the unique South Georgian eco-system.
Jason Flesher, Scenic’s Expedition Operations Manager, led the first dive. He said: “It was an extraordinary experience to be on board Scenic Neptune’s maiden submarine dive in South Georgia – and was a moment that both myself and our guests will remember for a lifetime. To personally provide deep insights to our guests and witness a diversity of rich marine life, including bioluminescent jelly fish, pelagic Antarctic krill and a vast array of marine benthic fauna, was truly an honour.”
Scenic Neptune submarine excursions are available on Scenic’s Antarctica, South Georgia and Falkland Islands 20-day voyages.
