If you’ve ever done snorkeling and enjoyed the excitement of skipping through the water like a dolphin, you’re going to admire the WhiteShark MIX. Defined as the world’s tiniest water scooter, Sublue Tech designed a powerful underwater dual propeller system capable of reaching speeds up to 3.45 mph, which is the speed of professional swimmers. This well-built model from Sublue offers enormous value for your buck. Let me explain why I say so in my WhiteShark Mix review.
The design is exceptionally compact and practical, which results in effective navigation and easy control. It weighs less than 6 lbs and is easy to squeeze in your carry-on bag. Due to its simplicity and the remarkable number of features, amateurs will find this unit to be an attractive entry to the world of underwater drones.

The patented design of the Whiteshark Mix is unique in the industry. The symmetrical design generated by the twin thrusters ensures balance and agility in the water and easy portability on land. Small but mighty, the Whiteshark Mix dives at 3.45 MPH (5.5 KMH; 3 knots) at a maximum depth of 130 feet (40 meters) through the water, faster and deeper than units that cost more than twice as much.
Features I love
The Whiteshark Mix is equipped with a universal action camera mount. Take your GoPro and attach it to drones nose. This combo makes it perfect for everything from family holiday videos to rare reef shots.
Easy to use magnetic switches on both left and right handles. Just grab the handles, squeeze the triggers, and off you go! Dual thrusters release a total of 17.6 lbf (8kg) of thrust to explore the underwater world. There is also a safety strap, just like on real scooters.
The Sublue WhiteShark comes with a floater that helps the device achieve zero buoyancy and for extra safety; the propellers are equipped with a safe, protective net that is designed to shield your fingers from a possible injury.
11000hAm rechargeable battery ensures a 30-minute ride on normal usage. Note that I am 170 lbs and got even 40 minutes of battery life on my test ride. As a great bonus is, the battery is replaceable and you can buy a spare battery from Amazon
