If you’ve always dreamt about exploring the depths of the ocean à la natural history series Planet Earth Blue Planet II, here’s your chance.

Airbnb has collaborated with BBC Worldwide to allow guests to spend three days and two nights onboard the Alucia, a world-leading oceanic research and exploration vessel used in the filming of Blue Planet II.

Not only will guests be able to enjoy shipboard comforts, they’ll also get to share meals with the crew, and even join an active research trip to explore the mysteries of the ocean in one of the Alucia’s two submersibles.

And if the documentary series is anything to go by, those onboard the Alucia will be able to glimpse life beneath the waves in various aquatic habitats such as coasts, deep, open ocean, coral reefs, and aquatic forests.

As the Airbnb listing is such a once-in-a-lifetime experience, clinching a spot isn’t easy. Participants have to submit a written answer to the question: Tell us about your ideal deep-sea adventure—what do you dream of exploring beneath the waves?

Three winners will be selected by February 17 and notified via email, and they can each bring one additional guest. The prize also includes round-trip airfare from your home country to the Bahamas, meal expenses, travel insurance, as well as lodging in an Airbnb listing for the nights bookending the boat trip.

The contest ends on February 10.
