Graham Hawkes, inventor of the DeepFlight Super Falcon, debuted the sub at this year's Monaco Yacht Show last month.

“This is literally like flying underwater,” Hawkes, a U.K.-born ocean engineer who has spent decades designing cutting-edge diving suits and submarines, said in an interview. “Once you’ve done that, you don’t want to do anything else.”
