Underwater WiFi is Next
Wa-Fi Has Arrived
Here at Virgin Voyages we are excited to be bringing underwater WiFi, or as we call it “Wa-Fi” service, to all Virgin Voyages ships.
Our world-class technology crew are working tirelessly to perfect this technological innovation. Using this incredible new technology, Virgin Voyages will offer underwater diving experiences unmatched by anything seen in the travel industry to date. Each ship will then serve as a beacon for the areas in the ocean within the vicinity of the vessel, with access to the network.
This technological innovation work coincides with a series of brand reveals. “Stepping into the untapped industry of ocean-based WiFi seemed the next natural step to us,” said Andy Schwalb, Chief Technology Officer at Virgin Voyages. “We wanted to be able to bring the internet culture to our sailors, even in places where it has yet been unattainable, like under the water.”
By granting sailors underwater Wa-Fi access, we are allowing people to stay connected, even when they decide to explore the great abyss below. Imagine exploring the underwater world, coming across a fish you want to learn more about and being able to do that research right from your phone. Or diving with a group of friends and snapping the most epic underwater selfie ever, then posting it in real time.
The new Virgin Voyages Wa-Fi service hopes to tap into all of those possibilities.
As you may have figured out by now, underwater WiFi does not exist yet. April Fools!
As soon as it is invented, we are sure to consider it.

We promise we'll have a lot of real news to share this year.
Let the Epic Sea Change begin.
