DeepFlight Adventures to Offer Submarine Experiences at Resort and Other Locations around the World in 2017

“We are delighted to partner with Rainbowfish Ocean Technology who has the resources, experience and capabilities that will allow us to bring the DeepFlight experience to more people around the world,” stated DeepFlight CEO, Adam Wright.

DeepFlight announced today at the Monaco Yacht Show that it has partnered with Shanghai-based Rainbowfish Ocean Technology to open the oceans for underwater tourism. DeepFlight Adventures will offer submarine experiences at resort and other locations around the world starting in 2017.

“We are delighted to partner with Rainbowfish Ocean Technology who has the resources, experience and capabilities that will allow us to bring the DeepFlight experience to more people around the world,” stated DeepFlight CEO, Adam Wright. “While we will continue to sell our submarines to the superyacht and private ownership markets, our partnership with Rainbowfish enables us to offer unique submarine adventures, including resort-based dives, as well as offshore expeditions.”

Having recently completed a successful joint expedition with DeepFlight in Papua New Guinea, Rainbowfish Chairman, Dr. Xin Wu, added, “DeepFlight makes an excellent partner for us as we seek to make underwater tourism a significant part of our business. With the launch of our 4800 ton mothership, MV Zhang Jian, our plans for the Rainbowfish 11000 full ocean depth manned submersible, and now the addition of DeepFlight submarines, this partnership makes us well-positioned to become a leading player in underwater tourism.”

DeepFlight also introduced its newest submarine, DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S, at the Monaco Yacht Show. The DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S was designed to enable people to experience underwater flight and view amazing sealife from resorts, yachts, and other seaside locations. The Super Falcon 3S adds a third cockpit to its flagship vehicle so that a pilot can take two passengers on underwater flights to 400ft (120m). The submarine will have Lloyds Register classification and be US Coast Guard certified.

In the Super Falcon 3S, passengers sit comfortably in individual cockpits. The polished acrylic viewing domes afford almost 360 degree visibility. The pressure hull is a proprietary, composite material that has been tested and proven to withstand the pressure of the ocean. Independent oxygen systems utilize conventional O2 makeup and CO2 scrubbers, providing 72 hours of life support. Like all DeepFlight submarines, the all-electric, zero pollution Super Falcon 3S is positively buoyant, meaning the craft automatically floats back to the surface.

DeepFlight is a privately held company that was founded to develop innovative technologies to expand human access into the oceans. The company has made significant technological breakthroughs, including creating a new class of personal submarines that apply the principles of flight underwater. DeepFlight provides a series of advanced personal submarines for the adventure tourism and superyacht industries.

Rainbowfish Ocean Technology, based in Shanghai, China, is leading the research and development of deep sea technology. The company is working with private investors and the government to launch an entrepreneurial model which will serve scientists, offshore companies and oil companies, as well as tourists and adventurers. In cooperation with the Hadal Science and Technology Research Center of Shanghai Ocean University (HAST), Rainbowfish has launched a mobile laboratory on its mothership MV Zhang Jian, and is working on the development of Rainbowfish 11000, a full ocean depth manned submarine. Rainbowfish plans to reach the depth of 11,000 meters in the Mariana Trench by 2020, the first time in human history in which a scientist, an entrepreneur, and a tourist will travel down to the hadal zone.
