‘ScUber’ launches submarine trips to Great Barrier Reef

A select few Australians will soon be able to briefly book an Uber submarine to the Great Barrier Reef, the ride-sharing giant said Thursday.

From next week — in what Uber is pitching as a world first — people in Queensland state will be able to order a ride through the Uber app on a two-person submarine and tour the World Heritage site.

A piloted battery-powered “scUber,” costing Aus$1,500 ($1,030) per person, will take 20 dives between May 27 and June 18 with each trip lasting an hour.

The sub will take two passengers down to 20 meters below sea level and along designated dive paths around the reef, in partnership with environmental advocacy group Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef.

A scUber booking includes a helicopter trip to the submarine’s dive location.
