World’s First Undersea Post Office in the Bahamas

Last month the Bahamas Postal Services announced the release of a new series of commemorative stamps which pay tribute to the 
75th Anniversary of the World’s first undersea Post Office

The Bahamas was the first country to have an underwater post office in 1939.  A couple of years later it was closed due to World War II (1942).

The islands of the Bahamas are well known for crystal clear waters which allows the sunlight to penetrate deep down, and the first under water motion picture was shot back in 1914 in the Bahamas. 

The seafloor post office was actually a submarine sphere used for filming underwater scenes, and allowed tourists a breathtaking view of marine sea life, along with the opportunity to send a souvenir postcard post marked “Sea Floor/Bahamas.” 

The commemorative stamps were designed by Derek Miller and printed by Lowe-Martin.  The stamp series feature a 15 cent stamp, a 50 cent stamp, a 65 cent stamp and a 70 cent stamp.

The undersea post office was created by American photographer John Ernest Williamson who was a pioneer in undersea photography.  His father invented a tube that could stretch to depths of 200 feet below the surface.

Williamson was also involved in the production of a number of motion pictures including one based on Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.
