From the guys at Aquabotix Europe, here are some images of the HydroView in action at Berlin’s Sealife Center in Germany. These centers make marine conservation aware to the public through education, action and awareness. Their themed journeys also provide an up-close look at marine life!

 Stay tuned for a personal account of this experience!

Sailing the waters in Duxbury Bay, Boating Local’s Tom Richardson goes up close and personal with the HydroView!

Check out our interview with him and see the vehicle glide through 15 feet of water viewing sea grass, tautog and other sea creatures!

As stated in an earlier post, Gurnet Point and Bug Light were the two filming locations, which proved to be successful.

A shipwreck was found off the coast of Italy that seems to be around 2,000 years old, states Updated News.

It all started when local fishermen kept finding pottery in their fishing nets so they decided to send out a dive team in hopes that something could explain the strange phenomenon!

Lo and behold, a Roman-era  commercial vessel discovered with more than 200 clay amphorae, which could still have wine, oil and grain contained within them!

So, are you ready to get a HydroView and find your own vessel this summer?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Last week, Aquabotix ventured  down to Duxbury, Mass where we met up with Boating Local’s Tom Richardson to see what we could capture!

The waters were extremely clear as the vehicle coasted through the sea near Bug Light and Gurnet Point, catching glimpses of fish and seagrass.

Check out what we caught on video!

And stay tuned for our exciting interview from our visit!

Overpopulation, rising sea levels and a craving to become sustainable have all given these inventors creative and quite possible visions.

These “floating cities of the future” have  numerous ways to help the environment, including ways to recycle saltwater into fresh, an on-board reef that discharges fish food to help the marine population and even underwater turbines to power the city using deep sea currents.
