Google, in partnership with The Caitlin Seaview Survey, has launched its first underwater street view camera. From the comfort of your very own couch, you can now visit the Great Barrier Reef, Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, or check out a couple spots in the Philippines.
Brian McClendon, VP of Google Maps and Earth, said, ‘With these vibrant and stunning photos you don’t have to be a scuba diver – or even know how to swim – to explore and experience six of the ocean’s most incredible living coral reefs’.
‘Whether you’re a marine biologist, an avid scuba diver or a landlocked landlubber, we encourage you to dive in and explore the ocean with Google Maps.’
On the more environmental side of things, the Google Seaview allows for a close study of the world’s coral reefs without risking damage to their fragile environments.
In the meantime, why don’t you go swimming with a sea turtle?
