Seabus, a tourist submersible
The French COMEX Marine Parks developed a unique tourist submersible design-an acrylic transparent hull vessel. It provides panoramic vision for 45- 50 passengers.
The Seabus, renamed Deepstar in 1994, can be arranged to operate in 3 modes: "swimming" on the sea-surface with the transparent hull submerged, "tethered"-diving while connected by wires to an above head support vessel, and on underwater rail-tracks.
