Washington: Google has reportedly added new locations to its underwater Street View imagery, including spots around Monaco, Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

Till now the Street View imagery featured six locations, including reefs around Australia`s Great Barrier Reef, the Philippines, Hawaii, locations off the coast of Bermuda and Galapagos Islands.
The divers typically cover about 2 kilometers and take between 3,000 and 4,000 images per dive during their expeditions and the team goes about three dives per day, each of which lasting for about an hour.
The latest addition to Street View is the shoreline of San Francisco as seen from the water, the report added.
