Google Goes Underwater
Google announced yesterdayÂ the first underwater imagery in Google Maps. And among the locations you can explore are Hanauma Bay on O’ahu, and Molokini crater off Maui. Evan Rapoport, former island resident and now Google employee, wrote: “This is definitely the coolest thing you’ve seen in a long time. You can now use Street View to swim with sea turtles, manta rays, and tropical fish in some of the ocean’s most magical locations.Â Of course, my favorite place in the world, Hawaii, has two spots for you to snorkel along.”
Also included in the underwater rollout are the Apo Islands in the Philippines, and three locations along the Great Barrier Reef off Australia: Heron Island, Lady Elliot Island, and Wilson Island. Check out the new oceans collection on Google Maps, or click through the Hawaii views below.
