The Whiteshark Mix Underwater Scooter by Sublue is affordable and makes snorkeling and underwater diving far less tiring than with your own leg movements. Snorkeling and diving just got better, and your wallet didn’t get much lighter in the process. It’s far more affordable than competing twin-propeller scooters and is, in fact, comparable in price to many weaker single-motor scooters.
The Sublue Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter is fast, powerful, capable and easy to use. Snorkel without having to propel yourself with fins and unceasing leg kicks. If you dive, Whiteshark Mix functions as deep as 130 feet. It will help you dive deep, and it will assist you in getting safely back to the surface.
Used properly, the Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter won’t sink to the seabed or get lost in the deep.
The Sublue Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter is a low-noise, dual-propeller, self-propelled, rechargeable, battery-powered underwater scooter. It assists snorkelers and scuba divers who want an underwater assist. It is not a safety flotation device; it is not intended for water rescues.
With a Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter, you’ll swim faster than you could without an assist while snorkeling or diving. The Sublue underwater scooter can propel its operator at speeds up to 3.35 miles per hour. That’s faster than what many competitive swimmers go—67 percent faster than some quality single-propeller scooters can achieve, and a few with higher prices.
The Lithium-polymer battery in the Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter has a real-world runtime of 30 minutes, and longer under favorable conditions. Additional batteries are available to lengthen underwater time.
A battery indicator starts at five LEDs to indicate a full charge. As the power reserve diminishes, an LED will go out. When you’re down to one light, you know it’s time to resurface for another battery.
How deep do you want to go? If you are equipped with oxygen tanks, the Whiteshark Mix can operate at depths to 130 feet. If you are snorkeling, simply use it to skim along swiftly just below the surface or to plumb to safe depths on a deep breath. You’ll have more air because you won’t be expending energy to paddle along.
The Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter protects your fingers and the rest of you from exposure to the dual propellers. Each propeller housing has a mesh cover over the opening to prevent injury.
If you lose your grip, don’t worry. It takes two hands to control the two buttons. Lose your grip on just one, and propulsion ceases until you grab ahold again and trigger both switches.
If you lose grip completely, you shouldn’t lose your scooter. It will shut off when you’re not squeezing the triggers. If you have the floater attached, your Whiteshark Mix will float to the surface and wait for you there. If the floater isn’t attached, the included tether will let you reel in your Whiteshark Mix as long as you have the tether around your wrist.
The orange buttons stand out against the white, aqua or blue color of the body.
Going where you want to go is easy. See a companion to the right or left? Just point the Sublue scooter as you would handlebars on a bicycle—it will take you there. See a reef you want to explore? Just point it downward and follow effortlessly. Want to surface? Look for the light, point up, and you’ll surface.
Match your personality by choosing the trim color that best suits you. Bodies basically are white, aqua or dark blue.
Although not equipped at the factory with a camera, every Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter comes with a bottom mount for a GoPro underwater camera. Buy the GoPro Hero 5 and you can capture your underwater adventures down to 33 feet in stills or on video. Relive your underwater experience on your PC or tablet, and post online for friends and family to see.
Get as close as you can to sea life. The Whiteshark Mix underwater scooter is quiet—limited to 50 decibels. The sound level won’t harm underwater creatures and is unlikely to scare them off.
