Queensland, Australia, in partnership with Uber, announced the launch of scUber, the world’s first rideshare submarine experience, coming to the Great Barrier Reef on Monday 27 May. For a limited time only, scUber riders will gain exclusive access to the world’s largest ecosystem, renowned as a biodiverse playground, rich in marine life and offering remarkable underwater experiences.
The scUber experience will cost a cool $3,000 for two riders and includes:
Pickup and drop off from your location with the Uber app;
Scenic helicopter ride to either Heron Island (for riders requesting from Gladstone) or the Quicksilver Cruises pontoon off the coast of Port Douglas (for riders requesting from Cairns, Port Douglas and Palm Cove);
One hour ride in a scUber submarine;
Return trip back to your original pickup address with Uber.
Is it just a matter time before we see an Uber submarine on UK shores? Unlikely we think.
