Uncompromising Quality and Unmatched Reliability
Jules Verne stories of voyages aboard a submarine or Jacques Cousteau’s underwater discoveries of our oceans have inspired millions of people on our planet for generations.
In the past, manned submersibles were purely industrial machines limited to research ships, the oil industries, and defence sectors. A traditional submersible required that the passengers boarded whilst it was still sitting on the ship’s deck, then it was hoisted overboard with the occupants inside. This industrial approach required the ships to have large and heavy man-rated cranes and significant infrastructure to operate any submersible.
When SEAmagine came along in 1995, all of this changed. The company, located in Los Angeles California, revolutionised the world of submersibles by changing the infrastructure required to operate a small sub from a ship.
SEAmagine conceptualised and patented submersibles capable of being launched without people on board and allow the occupants to board them safely and easily after the subs have been launched in the water. This original design and new operational aspect had never been thought of before and has become SEAmagine’s legacy and an industry standard.
As the original industry pioneer, SEAmagine brought new generations of small, manned submersibles to the market as real options for yacht owners, scientists, and professionals alike. From the onset, SEAmagine championed its submersibles’ large bubble windows for the passengers to sit in with a near 360-degree all-around view instead of having them look out through small portholes. This SEAmagine submersible feature has since been copied by various organisations and has become a standard in the sector. SEAmagine remains the most experienced submersible manufacturer in the field, having an unmatched record of over 12,000 dives accumulated throughout its fleet of subs around the world.
