Under Water Explorer

Mar 28, 2011   //   by @bahamasdiscovery   //   Tours  //  Comments Off on Under Water Explorer

Think of a self-contained underwater motorcycle with a large two foot clear dome keeping your head perfectly dry throughout your ride around the underwater reefs. The units were invented by a company called Bell Aqua, based in Florida in the 1990’s. You probably saw them for the first time on the television series “Sea Quest” when they were used as “escape pods” for the crew to abandon ship in case of an emergency.

The “bubble” or dome – is large enough for your head and even your hands.  This ensures that you can still wear your eyeglasses and adjust them as necessary. It also means that you are breathing normally – through your nose and mouth – without the need of using snorkel tubes or regulators like you would when diving.

If you choose to take an underwater camera with you – it is very easy to line up the shot by holding your camera up to the outside of the dome.

Your personal sub unit is propelled by a small battery operated engine that you have full control over. Your steering console allows you to direct the unit left and right. It also contains your power switch. Your ascents and descents are controlled by the safety divers who slowly take you up and down a control line. There is also a buoy that is tethered to your sub. This prevents you from descending deeper than the planned 15-20 foot dive.

Life support is provided by air stored in a SCUBA cylinder that uses a ScubaPro regulator to keep air continuously flowing into your bubble to keep your breathing air fresh. You can actually see the bubbles flowing and hear the air hissing so that you know it is working. ScubaPro is the worlds leading manufacturer of underwater life support equipment and offers the most reliable and safest equipment available. In addition, you also have an instrument panel that shows you how much air is remaining in your tank and your current depth.

Finally, the heavy battery which is your power source, is stored on the floor board. Your unit also has lead weights in the bottom of it. When you combine all of the weight on the bottom of the unit, with the buoyancy created from the large bubble at the top – the result is an extremely stable platform that can not tip over during your dive.

Harbour Island or “Briland” as known by it’s residents it one of the oldest settlement’s in the Bahamas and once served as the Bahamas first capital. The first settlement was founded over 300 years ago almost 100 years before United states became a nation.

The early adventuring residents of this 3 mile long and 1 mile wide island were skilled shipbuilders and farmers. In the late 1800 Dunmore Town became a respectable shipbuilding and sugar refinement center.

Sugar refinement became a important skill in the early part of this century when alcohol was outlawed in the United States. Dunmore Town went into full production refining sugar and producing Rum, understandably it was a very popular place. Although the sugar and Run are no longer produced

Harbour Islad is still very popular among the adventuring traveler. What 300 years of history has left behind is one of the most charming Islands in the Bahamas.

Strolling through Dunmore Town one can feel quite relaxed and charmed by the warm and friendly “Brilanders” and the quaint New England Loyalist architecture complete with white picket fences. As if this isn’t enough Harbour Island also features one of the most spectacular beaches in the world.

The powdery pink sand beaches of Harbour Island are thought of by many as being one of the finest in all of the Bahamas. While you are on Harbour Island ask the residents for directions to the “hill steps” which were cut out by prisoners with a underground tunnel from the cove to Rock House. You might also want to visit Titus Hole, a cave with a open mouth that overlooks the harbour and is said to be the first jail of Harbour Island.
