A semi Submersible is a boat that has a cabin under the water. Once you step down into the cabin you can look out through the four big windows. Reef Explorer is the only boat of its kind in Vanuatu and its superior to any glass bottom boat.

The Reef Explorer Difference

When comparing the Semi Submersible boat to a glass bottom boat, it becomes evident that the Semi Submersible offers a superior and more immersive experience.

Immersive Experience:

The Semi Submersible’s ability to be partially submerged provides a truly immersive underwater experience that surpasses the limited view of a glass bottom boat. Passengers can witness marine life up close and feel connected to the underwater world. Our glass on the Reef Explorer is magnified too

Unobstructed Panoramic Views:

The Reef Explorer’s large acrylic windows offer unobstructed, 180-degree views, allowing passengers to enjoy a comprehensive and clear perspective of the marine environment. In contrast, the viewing area of a glass bottom boat is often restricted and limited to looking straight down, providing the captain has driven over the good parts of the reef.

Enhanced Stability and Comfort:

The Semi Submersible’s stable design ensures a smooth and comfortable ride, minimizing the effects of waves and providing a more enjoyable experience for passengers. Glass bottom boats, on the other hand, may be more prone to rocking and swaying, potentially causing discomfort or seasickness.

Educational and Discovery Opportunities:

Semi Submersibles often provide knowledgeable guides and we work closely with marine biologists who offer educational content, enriching the experience and deepening passengers’ and our guides understanding of the underwater world. We work along side VESS

Privacy and Intimacy:

Semi Submersibles typically have a smaller passenger capacity, allowing for a more private and intimate experience. In contrast, glass bottom boats often accommodate larger groups, resulting in a potentially crowded and less personalized adventure.

Environmental Impact:

While both vessel types can have an environmental impact, the Semi Submersible Reef Explorer, when designed with eco-friendly practices, can minimize its carbon footprint through the use of electric or low-emission propulsion systems. This highlights its commitment to preserving marine ecosystems. Reef explorer uses one 40hp four stroke outboard

In summary:

the Reef Explorer boat offers a truly extraordinary and superior experience compared to a glass bottom boat. Its ability to immerse passengers in the underwater world, provide unobstructed views, explore diverse depths, ensure stability and comfort, prioritize safety, offer educational opportunities, provide privacy, and consider environmental impact sets it apart as the ultimate choice for those seeking a remarkable and responsible oceanic adventure.
