Richard Branson renting out flying submarine


Described as an underwater aircraft, the Necker Nymph comes in tandem with the Necker Belle, Branson’s catamaran on the high seas.

But the Nymph allows boaters to get low, flying underneath the water to depths of 30 meters (98 feet). Helmed by a trained pilot, it soars at a speed of 6 knots (7 mph).

Dives typically last from one to two hours and passengers wear normal scuba breathing gear.

It’s housed at Necker Island, Branson’s luxury home in the Caribbean – the same one that indeed recently burned down.

The dives, which last for 1-2 hours at time, start at $2,500 per day. Click here for more details.
