This was the very first prototype Underwater Virtual Tour that we created…

Originally developed as a “Proof of Concept” to test out the technology, showcase some of the features that we could offer and give operators a “taste” of the possibilities….

It exceeded all expectations, and in fact the camera operator (who was using the 360 camera underwater for the first time) had some issues with his mask leaking and fogging up….. and when he reviewed the footage he was stunned… The Underwater Virtual Tour was a better and clearer experience that the actual dive he had.

As a part of this project, we also created a new Google Maps Entry for WonderReef… We republished (downscaled) versions of images we created for the custom virtual tour above- and in the first 2 months they had received over 200,000 views.

Lessons learned :

  • Visibility is CRUCIAL – If the Vis is not great, nothing else matters
  • Less is More –
