In Brief

Planet Deepblu aims to be the Airbnb for scuba diving by giving travelers access to community and direct communication with instructors

Deepblu, a Taiwan-based scuba diving company, is cutting out the middleman for divers looking to plan their next trip with Planet Deepblu. Rather than using an agency for extended diving trips, the community-based platform allows for open communication between diving schools and divers. What was once a drawn-out process that could take weeks has been streamlined in a user-friendly experience marketplace. The program also integrates information from Deepblu’s dive computer, COSMIQ+, which allows for a more full social media experience after the dive is complete, as it doubles as a comprehensive dive-logging application.

Not only is Deepblu creating an easier booking process, it is completely changing the typical customer experience for this industry, even helping users contribute to a digital community. With this new offering, the company aims to become the Airbnb of the scuba world. Just as the latter made home-sharing part of the mainstream culture for millennials, Deepblu hopes to extend that idea to diving tourism.
