Love Stories and Romantic Proposal concepts in honor of Valentine's Day

To get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day — which is just around the corner, FYI — Sub Sea Systems is sharing some incredible stories, romantic concepts, and a variety of unique products that can make any proposal extraordinary.

Sea TREK helmet diving programs —worldwide— have had the pleasure of being involved in some spectacular proposals.

In 2013, happily in-love couple Denise and Brad attended Coral Con and decided to visit Discovery Cove Orlando. Brad arranged for the two to snorkel and swim with dolphins, and planned a special surprise for the end of the day– a SeaVenture tour with a little twist. The couple entered the SeaVenture area, excited to try Sea TREK and explore the incredible Grand Reef. Their excitement continued throughout the tour as they interacted with stingrays, schools of fish and other unique animals in the teeming reef.  Near the end of the tour Brad motioned to the Guide that he needed to borrow his magnetic writing board. Denise had a fleeting pang of anxiety as she thought something was wrong with Brad… until he wrote, “Will you marry me?” and got down on one knee. Being unable to speak to him, she took the board, quickly swiped it clean and wrote one word… “YES!” Read more about this sweet proposal here.

Sea LIFE Manchester — one of Sea TREK’s newest locations — also had the opportunity to be a part of a surprise underwater proposal. The staff was clued into the plan several weeks before it actually happened… and on the day of the event, they were almost more excited and nervous than the gentleman, Andy, himself!  Caught on video, the starry-eyed couple is seen experiencing Sea TREK in the unique Sea LIFE aquarium, as they’re surrounded by hundreds of fish, several sharks, rays and even the infamous, camera-hungry ‘Ernie’ the giant green sea turtle. As the lovers reach the end of the tour, before exiting, their Guide stops them and pulls out a large message in a bottle. Andy takes the message, unrolls it and holds it out for his future-bride to read. It says, ‘Kate, Will you marry me?’ The couple embraces (kissing with their Sea TREK helmets on) and in a classic “OKAY” hand signal, Kate shows the camera her answer. Spying from the other side of the acrylic, the rest of the Sea TREK staff members cheer with joy, some even teary-eyed. It was an emotional, exciting day for all involved! Watch the video, and maybe you will decide a Sea TREK proposal is the right way for you to pop the question!

Marriage proposals are very special. They signify the start of a shared life, the combining of families, and are a testament to true love. If you are struggling to come up with a special memorable way to ask that very important question, Sub Sea Systems has some really wonderful products to help make that moment especially unique.

Sea TREK is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you want to pull out all the stops and inundate your future fiancée’s senses, Sea TREK is an extraordinary way to accomplish this feat. Your fiancée will be fascinated by the patterns of light streaming through the water’s surface, sparkling on the sand. He or she will be virtually weightless walking on the bottom of the sea, with cool air blowing on his or her face. Effervescent bubbles will create musical sounds, and the sea life will swim all around stimulating sight and touch. This is the moment to fill your fiancées heart to the brim! Propose in this underwater realm, and you can be certain that the moment will be one they’ll never forget… AND how could he or she say anything but YES!

If you’d prefer to stay above water, our FunCat electric catamarans also provide a unique and romantic environment for your proposal. Imagine relaxing, cuddled up next to your loved one as you sway in the gentle waves. The blue-green water reflects glittering light, as the sun warms your skin. What an intimate and peaceful setting to pop the question! Whether you and your fiancée go fishing in the quiet of dawn floating on your FunCat, or you ride the FunCat to a secluded beach with a picnic, it is clear FunCat electric catamarans allow for private moments on the water… and the possibilities are endless! A proposal on a FunCat guarantees you and your fiancée will be the only two people in that special moment.
