The worlds first semi submarine lets you explore the marine life with ease

If you are an aqua- buff who wouldn’t miss a chance to dive into water, Kihaad Maldives, a luxury resort in Baa Atoll has devised the perfect gift for you. Say hello to Penguin: the brands compact semi-submarine that takes you into the underwater world with a level of unimaginable safety and comfort. It is also the world’s first such submarine to be introduced in the Maldives resort.

While water sports like scuba diving and snorkeling promise you a good view of the aquatic life, they come with their own set of challenges. This is where crafts such as the Penguin come in. The unique vehicle almost resembles a regular boat and is made up of two floating hulls on either side of a plexi-glassed cabin, attached underneath. With the help of this central cabin that comes with three large windows on the front and the side, one can explore the ocean floor without the hassles of getting wet. Further, while sports like scuba diving require expensive certification and training, sailing the waters in the Penguin is seamless and relatively cheaper.

The latest version of the semi-submarine: The Penguin 2.0 comes is dual types – electric and outboard. The main difference between the two lies in their propulsion types, with the former making use of an electric motor and the latter using a gasoline powered engine. This unique water vehicle can seat anywhere between 4 to 12 people in total, depending on its version. Here’s another incentive to plan a trip to the Maldives!

The World’s First Compact Semi-Submarine Offers Underwater Rides Without Equipment

Penguin 2 0 -

This mini semi-submarine is the hottest excursion in Maldives. The atoll area, a ring-shaped coral reef is the best place for Penguin Saling because of the rich underwater shows and calm waves.

Developed by Gocean, Penguin is the first compact semi submarine motor boat. Penguin is sailing in the Maldives, Seychelles and Chengdu in China and aimed at becoming must-ride excursion all around the world’s premier resorts. This submersibles vessels is capable of diving, similarly to submarines. However, unlike submarines, they cannot be entirely submerged below the surface of the water.

Penguin helps anyone to explore undersea easily and conveniently without having to swim. There are not complicated control or operation. You can enjoy fantastical view under the sea comfortably with the loved-ones.

Along with exploration under the sea, you can also enjoy leisure activities on boat such as fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving or sunbathing. Penguin does not discharge pollutant and damage nature. The watercraft uses electric motor and contributes to sustainable tourism.

The windows are made with acrylic material, the best for underwater viewing. Used in producing aquarium for its high transparency (92% light transmission), acrylic has a UV protection function. As time goes it does not have yellowing effect which changes the color of the material. Semi-submarines do not have an international classified status. Their operating range from the native port might be limited by the local authorities.

Explore The Depths Of Water With The PENGUIN: Your Personal Semi-Submarine


Have you ever wondered about what goes on underwater? There are so many cool and interesting creatures down there that you may have never seen before. Unfortunately, your only realistic options are to: scuba dive, which is quite expensive for a one-time experience, or snorkel just the surface.

With this PENGUIN personal semi-submarine, you can explore the underwater world whenever you want!




The PENGUIN is a compact semi-submarine that resembles a regular boat with the included feature of a plexiglass-windowed cabin attached underneath to allow people to view underwater.






The PENGUIN is easy to operate and can even be operated in the cabin! Allowing you to move around under the water.

With the PENGUIN, you’re able to get amazing views of the underwater world.

And it’s even eco-friendly with it’s different model types.

The newest model of the PENGUIN is the PENGUIN 2.0. It comes in two different types: electric and outboard. The main difference of the two are the propulsion types. The electric, unsurprisingly, uses an electric motor to run the boat, while the outboard uses an engine that is powered by gasoline. Both types seat up to 12 people on board.



Additionally, you can also opt out from the PENGUIN 2.0 and go with the PENGUIN 1.0. The PENGUIN 1.0 also uses an electric motor to run the boat, but can only seat up to 4 people on board.

Penguin Is The World’s First Compact Semi-Submarine

Penguin semi submarine

The wonderful thing in front of you is called Penguin, and it’s the first compact semi-submarine motor boat and probably the hottest new way of exploring the Maldives. Developed by Gocean, this semi-submarine aims to be another cool feature of the world’s premier resorts in the Maldives, Seychelles, and Chengdu in China, offering tourists a new way of relaxing and having fun.

This submersible is capable of diving, but it won’t remain entirely submerged below the water surface. That’s why we could say this Penguin would allow anyone to explore the undersea, even those people who are a little bit afraid of drowning or sinking. There are no complicated controls or operations either, thus allowing tourists full enjoyment of the fantastic underwater life.

Along with exploration under the sea, the Penguin also offers the possibility of fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving or sunbathing. And the best thing might be that this vessel is also eco friendly, using only an electric motor, which promises 8 hours of running, so it won’t discharge any pollutants, nor will it damage nature.

Penguin seems to be an inspired name for this semi-submersible, although these adorable creatures are more often seen in cold waters. I guess just a few of us would have the desire to explore them and experience the cold.
