Diving 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea to Deliver a Pizza

By Gigi L.

No, this isn’t a joke. And no, dolphins don’t order Domino’s for game night. It’s a real job for human people. You can actually get paid to dive into the ocean to deliver a delectable hot and fresh pizza to underwater residents. The world really is a strange and magnificent place.

In the lovely state of Florida, there is an underwater hotel that is open to the public. At Jules’ Undersea Lodge, you can enjoy an overnight stay in the ocean for the low price of $900 per person. If you would like to bring a large device to your room, such as an iPad or a computer, the fee starts at $150. So, if you wanted to literally sleep with the fishes in an underwater hotel room with your iPad, that’s a grand total of $1,050. Geez. To put it into perspective, a one-day trip to Disney World for one is only about $105.

On the bright side, the lodge offers pizza delivery, which may distract you from your drained bank account. One of the hotel’s pizza delivery professionals is named Rob Doyle. It’s Rob’s job to put on the scuba gear and swim through the treacheries of Davy Jones’s locker to bring you your precious pepperoni. Rob says, “I don’t think there’s anybody else on this planet that delivers pizza the way I deliver pizza.” The man definitely makes a valid point. Rob begins his work day by driving close to the location of the delivery, then suiting up and placing the pizza inside a watertight briefcase. Rob then dives in and swims to the customer’s hotel room, where he can access it through an airlock. Believe it or not, underwater pizza delivery is not the only service Rob provides. If you are in an underwater location and need an item delivered, you can call Rob and he will bring it to you.

This is definitely a weird job. But, if you love scuba diving and pizza delivery is your passion, send in your application now. Maybe I’ll see you delivering my Detroit-style with extra cheese and sausage under the cover of the deep blue sea. Then again, I would never pay $1,000 for one night in a hotel.
