Aqua Star has come up with a new water scooter AS2, which may be seen as a successor to AS1 that lets you go for deepwater quests. AS1, as you may be aware, is a sea scooter that has been meticulously designed for underwater diving/

After the success of the AS1, Aqua Star has now equipped AS2 to make their fleet more versatile. Unlike AS1, the AS2 can carry two people at once. It is intensely designed for a very comfortable ride and optimized for smooth accessibility of shallow caves and reefs.

The AS2 is perfectly suited for couples and families to explore underwater wonders in a very safe environment. Presence of a second person at controls will eliminate the feeling of diffidence.
