For keen divers, getting to spend as long under water as possible is the dream. But the reality is that perhaps half of a dive will be spent lugging on your equipment and getting to and from the dive spot, instead of exploring it.
This could all change soon, however, as a new 'personal submarine' enters the market. The machine will take divers to the waters' depths faster than ever before, meaning that they can spend more time under the water exploring.
And far from being just a concept idea, prototypes of the submersible has already been tested under the waters.
The Ortega Submersible was developed by a Dutch company based in the region of Twente, the Netherlands.
It's billed as the 'fastest, safest and most versatile submersible boat in the world' and can take divers down to depths of 310ft in seconds with the help of two electric motors.
Thanks to the powerful custom-built batteries, the vessel can reach dive points quicker so divers can spend more time under water.
