Six Gills & A Sub Named Idabel

Idabel is a one-of-a-kind deep diving submersible, named for the town in Oklahoma where she was born. She was designed and built for her exact location on Roatan, Honduras by American Karl Stanley, an adventurer and deep sea explorer who built his first sub at the age of 15.

Idabel is designed to safely transport three people to a depth of 3000 feet ( 915 meters) below sea level. Her safety features include twin ballast compartments, twin high-pressure air systems, a 350 pound droppable lead weight and fully redundant propulsion systems. She has no rudder, dive planes or other moving parts to jam and is equipped to provide three days of emergency life support.

Features include:

  • 30-inch diameter viewport for her passengers
  • 11 powerful lights, including one positional
  • Nine viewports for the pilot so he can see in every direction
  • Comfortable bench seating for extended dives
  • Built-in sound system with I-Pod docking

Captain Karl Stanley

Captain Karl StanleyAmerican Karl Stanley has designed and built two different deep submersibles which he has piloted in three different countries. He's logged more than 3000 hours of experience piloting a deep submersible and is a member of the Deep Submersible Pilots Association.

Karl’s dives have ranged in depth from 500 feet to 2660 feet and in duration from a few hours to nearly 17 hours. Very few others have the kind of experience Karl has. Karl and his underwater adventures are the subject of a documentary titled “A View from Below,” produced by Rooftop Pictures (available for purchase on Amazon.com).

Six Gill Shark Research

Roatan Institute of Deepsea ExplorationCaptain Stanley has teamed up with a local non-profit organization to help in the tagging of six gill sharks for research purposes. If you are interested in making a financial contribution to the study of six gills in Roatan, please let us know and we’ll put you in touch with the right people. A single satellite tag costs about $3500, so any contribution is appreciated.
