Users can now take a virtual scuba tour on Google Maps.

Created in partnership with The Catlin Seaview Survey, Mountain View complied pictures from Heron, Lady Elliot and Wilson Islands at the Great Barrier Reef, Molokini Crater and Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, and the Apo Islands in the Philippines.

“We’re adding the very first underwater panoramic images to Google Maps, the next step in our quest to provide people with the most comprehensive accurate and usable map of the world,” Google announced on its official blog.

“Now, anyone can become the next virtual Jacques Cousteau and dive with sea turtles, fish and manta rays.”
