Google Maps heads underwater

Google, in partnership with the Catlin Seaview Survey, has shifted from the streets to the ocean.

The new addition to Street View allows users to experience a virtual scuba expedition by providing panoramic views of underwater locales.

Using Catlin Seaview Survey’s underwater camera technology, the on-rails experience uses pictures from the Heron, Lady Elliot and Wilson Islands at the Great Barrier Reef, Molokini Crater and Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, as well as the Apo Islands in the Philippines.

Head over to Google’s new Ocean gallery page, where you can see all the locations, along with a Google+ hangout at the Great Barrier Reef.

The preview is provided below.
