Is this the most epic marriage proposal of all time?!

Is this the most epic marriage proposal of all time?!

We bet that you’ve never seen an underwater proposal like this before!

Last month, Justin McIntaggart, a barbershop owner from Ontario, Canada, entered the global scUber competition along with 152,000 other budding submariners. However, he never expected to be one of six lucky individuals to be selected to experience the world’s first rideshare submarine on the Great Barrier Reef.
 
Justin saw the opportunity for a so-fish-ticated underwater proposal, asking his girlfriend, Kate Hartberg to take his hand in marriage at 20 metres below the surface, surrounded by marine life and stunning coral.

Back on land, Kate, originally from the Gold Coast, said: “Wow, I am speechless! What a beautiful surprise. Justin and I both adore the ocean, and riding in the scUber submarine was already a “pinch myself” moment, but I really couldn’t believe my eyes when Justin got down on one knee”.

As part of the global launch of scUber, Uber will donate $100,000 (as well as matching the value of every scUber ride purchased) to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef to support their ongoing Reef conservation efforts.
