Do you know what Google Underwater Street View is? Check this out.
Would you agree with me that watching corals and saltwater fish is captivating? For me, the reason I set up my first saltwater aquarium was to bring that experience into my home.
Did you know you could immerse yourself into 360 degrees of an underwater reef and fish experience right from your phone or computer? It’s called Google Underwater Street View, and it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Part Google Map, part 360 virtual reality, you can dive right into 140 locations without getting wet.
Google’s underwater street view delivers an immersive, interactive online experience so that you can experience the reefs from the comfort of your home.

How does it work?
The images below are actually ‘maps’ like you would have on your smartphone when you are trying to see the street view of an address or location. You can move around, zoom in, zoom out and take your own tour of each of these reefs the navigation works just like the street view feature. Look up, look down, zoom in and out and get the view you want.
