Diving gear is not required to view the popular Google Maps underwater mapping service.
Now you can enjoy some of the world's most popular and scenic oceanic reefs and far-away oceans without even leaving your computer.
The mapping giant partnered with Catlin Seaview Survey to bring to viewers spectacular panoramic views of six of the world's top underwater spots including Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii, according to a report in Yahoo News.
The panoramic views can be found on the Street View feature of Google Maps and at the Street View Gallery at maps.google.com/ocean.
Leave it to Google to think outside the box.
