Google Street View now lets you see underwater panoramic images

Google Maps continues to add more cool places to see on Street View, and—just recently—they have decided to include incredible underwater shots for you to explore. If you key in the location of the Great Barrier Reef on Google Maps, for example, the application now allows you to dive into the depths of the ocean and discover what lies beneath.

Google has teamed up with The Caitlin Seaview Survey—a major scientific study of reefs around the world—to take photos underwater. Using a special camera called the Seaview SVII, the team was able to shoot 360-degree panoramic images of marine topology and sea life.

Currently, the team has photographed only the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the depths of Maui, Hawaii, and our very own Apo Island.
