Guests wear specially designed buoyancy vests, that position the body correctly and rendering the users weightless when submerged. The experience begins and ends in waist deep water, for a gentle and non-threatening start and finish. The vehicle positions the guests next to each other, with three on each side of the pilot-guide.
A state-of-the-art onboard computer system performs a number of functions, under the control of the tour guide. It processes steering commands, setting the proper speed and direction of the vehicle propulsion system. It also hosts a high quality digital audio system that is connected to waterproof headphones built into the face mask assembly worn by each passenger.
While encountering different marine species, the tour guide selects from a series of brief pre-recorded natural history lectures that the computer then provides to each guest in his or her native language. Not only do guests learn about the marine creatures they see, but they will also be educated about environmental responsibility if they choose to explore natural coral reef environments on their own. In addition, the audio system permits interaction with the dive master-guide.
