An Ocean Exploration Trip with Airbnb

From the very best of land holidays to the exploration of the mysterious space offered through world’s first commercial spaceflight by Virgin Galatica, now American company Airbnb has just announced a partnership with BBC Worldwide, inviting guests onboard the vessel from BBC’s Blue Planet II on an underseas expedition.

The deep sea exploration experience offers a chance for three lucky winners to spend three days and two nights onboard the 56m OceanX’s Alucia as featured in the world leading oceanic research and exploration vessel used in the filming.

“Having spent so many hours in the submarine and countless weeks at sea filming the deep sea for Blue Planet II, the Alucia almost feels like my second home. I now feel privileged to be able to share this once in a lifetime experience with promising ocean heroes and show them the wonders of life in the ocean” – Orla Doherty, Blue Planet II‘s Producer and Veteran Ocean Explorer

The lucky winners will enjoy a sleepover as well as discover the breathtaking surrounding views of the seabed, which is home to a wondrous universe of fish, mammals and sea creatures. This submarine trip is the first of its kind adventure submerging 1,000m beneath the waves, with the journey starting from Cape Eleuthera and ending at Nassau, Bahamas.

Experience it with Airbnb as it transforms iconic spaces into homes to bring guests on a short trip to varied locations.

“Immerse yourself into the extraordinary. Let marine life host you for this awe-filled special experience aboard the iconic Alucia. Our oceans are in danger, and what better way to know what we can do to help than through the very eyes of underwater animals at risk and with the expertise of the world’s leading scientists?” – Joe Gebbia, Founder and Chief Product Officer, Airbnb.
