Imagine this: You’re walking along a secluded beach on an island in the Bahamas. Gentle waves lap the shoreline, and a sailboat bobs just offshore. A few seagulls swoop by, racing their shadows down the beach. You’re pleasantly tired after a day spent sunbathing, snorkeling and splashing in the warm ocean. The only two things on your to-do list? Rest and relaxation.
An escape to a tropical paradise like this one may be easier than you think—thanks to an immersive, 360-degree video campaign created by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA).
The 360-degree video “Explore the Caribbean Like Never Before at 360°” offers the chance to take a virtual trip to the islands of the Bahamas (think of it like Google Street View), getting up close and personal with the swimming pigs at Pig Beach, a shark feeding at Compass Cay and an underwater shipwreck surrounded by schools of fish and scuba divers.
