Some of the most amazing moments of my life happened underwater at Hanaunama Bay in Hawaii. I can remember the serenity I felt swimming with sea turtles and simply losing myself in this underwater paradise. I’ve often told my wife about these adventures and now, thanks to the amazing Google Maps, I can relive them via the remarkable new underwater Street View imagery.
Google has partnered with The Catlin Seaview Survey, a major scientific study of the world’s reefs, to give landlubbers the amazing experience of exploring six of the ocean’s most incredible living coral reefs via the Street View feature of Google Maps.
Thanks to the thousands of underwater images captured by a special SVII camera, a whole new level of discovery has been offered to those who otherwise would never have the chance to experience such joys. It may never replace the real thing, but it’s as close as you’re going to get without getting your feet wet.
This latest endeavor by the Google Maps team is just another testament to the lengths at which Google is willing to go to put the whole of the world in the palm of our hands. Bravo!
