Planet Ocean Underwater Hotels

Planet Ocean Underwater Hotels, LLC is based in Key West – America’s Paradise.  We have been working to build an affordable movable underwater luxury hotel – without compromising on safety.  We have a very unique mission.  We will be the first on Planet Earth to accomplish this mission.  Our goal is for Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel to help fund and implement worldwide proven coral reef restoration and aquaculture solutions/technologies; thus helping to save Planet Earth/Ocean from the ongoing daily destruction of Planet Ocean.

Founder and Managing Director

Tony Webb

Tony owned and operated several companies in the emerging high-tech industries of the 1980s and 1990s before focusing his attention on the field of space and oceanographic exploration beginning in 2000. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1975 – 1979 where he specialized in celestial navigation. After leaving the service, he continued as a mariner – transporting yachts along the Intra-Coastal Waterway – as he began his business career.

Webb became the youngest agency owner in the USA for Exxon Office Systems Company, a subsidiary of Exxon Enterprises, and competed against IBM, Wang, and Lanier in the emerging dedicated word processing and FAX market.

In 1991, Webb was hired as the national sales manager for world’s first software search engine company that automatically captured TV news broadcasts using PC-based open-ended architecture. Years before Google. By the early 2000s, Webb shifted his attention from high technology to exploration. From 2000-2003, he became a major supporter for the United Nations World Space Week. He was a speaker at the International Space Development Conference in 2002 and 2007.

Still involved in space exploration, Webb became the first major sponsor for the Google Lunar X PRIZE team, SYNERGY MOON. His sponsored international team made it to the final round and eliminated over 15 teams. Many of those lunar teams have now joined team SYNERGY MOON.

At the UN Climate Accords in Paris the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel project received mention to the world leaders. Immediately, Mr. Webb’s underwater hotel received world media coverage. Years later, Mr. Webb was approached by Mr. Fabian Cousteau to design and fabricate an underwater research center to be placed at a depth of 60 feet. This project was approved by three Egyptian Government Ministers. There was a funding issue for the four underwater hotels joined together by a tunnel system and the research center. That project ended with no funding. In 2019, the US Government approved for operations in Cuban waters. This project was designed to provide a new spirit of entrepreneurship for the socialist island nation. It was rejected by the Cuban government and shortly thereafter President Trump ended all forms of tourism to Cuba. The major reason Cuba was selected was Cuba has the best coral reefs in all of the Caribbean.

Tony Webbs Family History

Two badges of honor and both are still alive, but rather the global lottery to win a space flight and televised to 600M people STS-107 ended that. The 2nd was about the world playing the same game and together journey to Mars. That game resulted in the global legal charitable raffle. I am a man of my words.
My father was AIA and his architecture began my life over a flowing stream. The bed was above the stream

My Dad’s 1958 motel was 7 stories tall. I asked Dad why did you stop at 7? Son, there were no cranes that could lift higher.

Dad’s work is at The Georgia Historical Society you can see his work, including the first indoor air-conditioned mall for the Southeast.

Because Dad teaching me about Architecture and Construction and the full business is Tony Webb’s solid foundation to accomplish the fabrication and assembly of the world’s first moveable underwater hotel.

Mom and The Queen of England and the BBC news about the encounter onboard the QE2. Mom… got her EXACT spot where she would meet The Queen. Mom went to the Captain of the QE2 to ensure she would be in her spot to meet The Queen of England.

Mom and The Queen met. The Queen asked Mom have you been on board the QE2 before? Mom responded, yes your majesty we were on board when England went to war and we had to disembark. The Queen and Mom became instant friends and on my arrival at the Marina del Canton Villa, I met the Lady who spoke for The Queen when The Queen could not make the appearance. Mom loved her British ancestors deeply and became a true shining light.

What has been missing from this 13 year day to day endeavour is funding.  Since the huge amount of money would mean more money be provided to the investors and a fraction, if any, would be used to save the coral reefs from extinction.  The worst factor would be everyday people could never afford the one night’s stay.  The Membership Program begins the funding foundation.

Our USA steel fabricators will sign a legal construction contract, the entire steel components will be completed in 6 months. The same applies for the acrylic fabrication and completed in 6 months. The interior will be 100% assembled and 100% operational and in about 6 months. 

The acrylic panels are placed and the acrylic engineering team seals the underwater hotel.

Now the entire underwater hotel is fully operational and immediately ready to receive our guests. What’s so fascinating is the  crew who assisted in the triple redundancy systems assembly are 100% trained on the operations.

Now everyday people can enjoy INNER SPACE!
