The Seaglide is a handheld deployable vehicle which increases the user's top speed when held. It can be crafted by using the Fabricator. The Seaglide takes up six slots (2x3) in the player's Inventory. It has a top Speed of 18.5 Knots or 9.5m/s (34km/h).

The Seaglide consumes energy when used. When the energy of the Seaglide is depleted, it is rendered unusable. The empty Battery can be replaced with a new one using the R key to select a replacement from the players held batteries. On a full charge, the Seaglide can travel approx. 3800 meters (38m/1%).

The Seaglide also possesses a small 3D map of the immediate terrain as well as a built-in energy gauge. It also has a flashlight that can be toggled on and off with the right mouse button. The flashlight does not use energy. When the flashlight is on, then the map will turn off.

Seaglide speed does not stack with the speed boost Fins give, and Standard O2 Tanks do not slow down its movement speed.

Seaglide Fragments can be found in the Kelp Forest and in Safe Shallows

While wearing Swim Charge Fins, the Seaglide does not run out of power as it recharges faster than depletes. It is unknown if this will be changed.

Uses

The Seaglide can be carried in the inventory and must be assigned to the Toolbar to be used. When used, it drastically increases the swimming speed of the player. Currently, it doesn't have a Depth limit, and thus functions anywhere the player goes.
