The A to Z of Sub Sea




A— Accessible

Accessibility is an important part of Sub Sea Systems. We have created a product and program (SeaTREK) that grants people access to the sea. Without even needing to know how swim, anyone ages 8 and up can descend into the ocean and walk on the seafloor. Not only does Sea TREK share the underwater world with everyone who can walk and breathe, we also make it easy for people with glasses… because your face does not get wet, participants can wear prescription glasses or contact lenses!


B— Breathtaking 

Sea TREK gives you a firsthand view of another world that may just take your breath away! The stunning sea, the buoyant feeling, and the colorful creatures— it’s simply breathtaking!


C— Clear Lounge

Clear Lounge is our newest innovation. Helmet diving in our freestanding aquarium, while receiving aromatic oxygen, playing underwater games, and shooting bubble guns is only part of the experience. Underwater music, a photo booth complete with a digital backdrop and props, and oxygenated smoothies round out the incredible new adventure. Read more about Clear Lounge here www.clear-lounge.com


D— Dolphin TREK

Dolphin TREK is the only dolphin interaction in the world where you can literally walk underwater among dolphins, in their natural environment! Descend into the water and watch as the dolphins jump above the surface 10 feet over your head; feel the rush of water as they swim around you, blow bubbles, and even give you an underwater kiss. To find a location and plan your experience visit www.dolphin-trek.com 

E— Effervescent

Clear Lounge is positively effervescent. The bubble curtains allow guests to feel the sparkling fizz of tiny bubbles as they slide up their bodies.


F— FunCat Electric Catamaran (Family)

Our FunCat is Fabulous! An electrically powered, chaise-lounge, pontoon boat with easy-to-use controls, an adjustable seatback, and armrests with cup holders make the FunCat the perfect leisure watercraft. We have a holiday special going on right now at www.funcats.com. FunCat — the perfect family gift!

G— Green

FunCats are Green! Eco-friendly electric motors silently propel you through waters without polluting the lakes and oceans.

Clear Lounge uses sustainable products; utilizing LED lighting, and recyclable products.

SeaTREK and Reef Alliance promote sustainable diving practices, and proactive environmental conservation.

H— Helmet Diving

Sea TREK helmets offer the most advanced technology available for shallow water helmet diving. With ergonomic handles, tri-view lenses, and weighted shoulders, the helmets are futuristically styled, and practically designed. The Sea TREK program offers a guided underwater walking tour that is engaging, educational, and entertaining. Sea TREK is THE premier helmet diving program in the world.

I— Interactive & Innovative

SHARKS! Interactive, Stingray Bay, and Dolphin TREK are interactive programs that use innovative ideas to educate people about sharks, stingrays, and dolphins. Interactions with the creatures foster passion for their species. Sub Sea Systems is always innovating and finding new ways to offer underwater interactions and encounters.

J— Joy

Sub Sea Systems loves to spread joy for the sea, for experiences, and for memorable family time.


K— Kids (ages 8+)

Sea TREK offers an alternative to diving for kids ages 8 and up. Without certification, or even knowing how to swim — kids can experience the joy of breathing and walking under the sea.

L— Learn

Sub Sea Systems has many programs that allow people to learn about commonly misunderstood or feared creatures (such as sharks and stingrays), animal anatomy, ocean conservancy, and about the underwater world in general.

M— Majesty

Sea TREK shares the incredible, indefinable majesty that is our underwater realm.

N— Nature

Sea TREK, Dolphin TREK, SHARKS!, Stingray Bay, and FunCat all allow people to interact with nature. From walking through schools of fish near a coral reef or petting a nurse shark as it swims across your lap, to kissing a dolphin or exploring the lake on a FunCat, Sub Sea Systems is focused on sharing its passion of connecting people with nature all over the world.

O— Ocean & Oxygen

Many of our programs and products are based around the ocean, its creatures, environment, and even its importance to our world — most of the world’s oxygen comes from the sea. Additionally, Clear Lounge is an underwater oxygen bar!


P— Passion

Sub Sea Systems’ passion for the ocean, for family, and for experiential adventure is what keeps our innovations attractive and marketable to a broad range of guests. We’re constantly working to develop new ways to share our passion with the rest of the world.


Q— Queens

Queens have actually donned Sea TREK helmet crowns– and their hair and makeup survived underwater too!

R— Reef Alliance

Reef Alliance is a program developed by Sub Sea Systems. Our operators and Guides take the Reef Alliance pledge to take only pictures and leave only bubbles, and to educate each and every guest about the fragility of our underwater world.

We pride our selves on our responsible diving practices and proactive conservation efforts!
