  • Meet scUber, the world's first rideshare submarine

The three-person submarine was launched on Heron Island, off the coast of Gladstone in the Southern Great Barrier Reef on Thursday.

"ScUber" is designed for two people and a driver. ScUber was developed jointly with the State of Queensland. "We're thrilled to partner with Uber to showcase the beauty of the reef through this innovative experience".

"We're working harder than ever before to find new ways to showcase the unique experiences on offer in Queensland".

Those lucky enough to book passage will obtain an unfiltered lens onto Australia's greatest underwater icon and the world's largest living structure, which is home to 600 different types of coral, approximately 1,625 species of fish and more than 1,000 small islands.

ScUber aims to change the public's perception of the Great Barrier Reef, driving awareness of the wonder of the Reef and increase visitation.

"ScUber will hopefully inspire others to come and experience the reef's beauty".

Ms Jones said the month-long campaign could generate an extra 1.4 million visitors and deliver an additional $1.8 billion to the region over the next three years. If you hail a ride, you'll be sailing beneath the waves in an Aquatica Submarines Stingray submersible, a battery-operated vehicle that seats two, plus the pilot.

Last year, research found exploring the Great Barrier Reef in a submarine was the most-desired future travel experience, Coddington said in a statement.

Uber has partnered with Australian tourist group Tourism Queensland to offer what it calls the world's first rideshare submarine, scUber that promises to give you a memorable tour of the underwaters.

The scUber submarine allows riders to explore the Great Barrier Reef at a depth of up to 30 metres, with 180-degree views.
