For exploring the mysteries of the ocean or a deep lake (or filming in the pool), an underwater drone can be a fascinating tool (or toy). Due to the difficulty of sending signals through water, many underwater drones have a tether cable that sends signals and transfers video, though some may be controlled wirelessly. The tether and build of the drone will determine its max depth, so make sure the drone you choose fits your needs. Video storage and quality will vary, with some drones capable of streaming 4K video while you explore. Virtual reality goggles may be included for an immersive underwater experience.
