ScUber, the world's first rideshare submarine on the Great Barrier Reef, has had its first marriage proposal.

Justin McIntaggart, a barbershop owner from Ontario, Canada, last month entered the global scUber competition. After being selected from 152,000 people to be one of six winners, the 29-year-old took the opportunity to plunge in and ask his girlfriend, Kate Hartberg, 25, to take his hand in marriage at 20 metres below the ocean's surface.

Back on land, Kate said, “We were in this magnificent bubble, surrounded by stunning coral and the most bright, colourful marine life, both in awe by the whole experience. It was just perfect.”

The newly-engaged couple will celebrate this week by exploring the world's oldest rainforest, the Daintree Rainforest, and a tour around some of Australia's greatest waterfalls around Cairns, before planning their wedding.

As part of the global launch of scUber, Uber will donate A$100,000 (US$68,500) to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, to support their ongoing Reef conservation initiatives.
