Basically, the oil rig has been converted into a hotel called Seaventures and while its 25 tiny guest rooms don't exactly resemble those of a luxury resort, they do include access to that elevator which'll lead to some crystal clear water, coral reefs, and plenty of ocean life.

I hate deep water. And by hate I mean terrified; I'm just trying to justify it.
