Top 10: Extreme Vacations

By Sarah Staples –

Only one thing better than experimenting with high-tech vehicles is turning one into a giant fishing lure — with you inside as bait. Stanley Submarines’ custom-built, submersible Idable ferries you down 1,500 feet off the coast of Roatan, and attached to the sub is live bait designed to lure the seldom seen six-gilled shark. From the depths of the ocean’s blackness, don’t be alarmed when you see this prehistoric specimen — longer than your 13-foot sub — approach one of the sub’s nine 30-inch viewports. You’ll feel Idable rock back and forth as the gentle ocean giant works to dislodge her baited treats.
