Melbourne woman with the best job in the world shares her day as a submarine co-pilot in Hawaii


An Australian woman living in Hawaii shared what her average day looks like as a submarine copilot.

Brittany Nash is originally from Melbourne but has done the job of her dreams by co-piloting a submarine and giving guests underwater tours of a spectacular reef in sunny Hawaii.

She says she gets up at 5 a.m. on an average day, has hour-long breaks in the sun, floats the submarine around the harbor, and acts as a guide.

Brittany spends her day on the water sailing between the submarine Atlantis 14 and the tug, shuttle and transfer boats, while helping the crew load and unload tourists for their guided reef tours.

Millions were in awe of Brittany’s “idyllic” everyday life and thought she had found the “perfect job.”

Brittany said waking up at 5 a.m. is “pretty stark,” but she watches the sun come up as she rides her bike to the docks and checks her schedule for the day.

She boards the submarine and completes a series of checks and measures to ensure all ships are operational for the day.

“We go on our shuttle boat and have our little morning meeting, we just discuss the day and what the conditions are like and then it’s time to go,” she explained in a TikTok clamp.

After the encounter, Brittany is back on the submarine where she ‘steps on the sticks’ to propel him out of the harbour, where he is attached to a tugboat and towed to the main dive site.

After a few hours of work, Brittany arrives at her “favorite part of the day” where she can relax on her first break.

“More than an hour I get to sit on top of the submarine and do everything. I watch the sunrise, do a little yoga, read my book, definitely take a nap because I’m very tired,” she said.

“Then they end up calling me on the radio, which means I’ll probably have to get back up and do some work.”

Brittany puts on her uniform and the submarine gets ready for the first dive of the day, then heads to the top where the crew takes the shuttle’s first load of guests aboard the submarine.

‘We do six different tours every day. First dive, I’m doing a narration, I’m just talking about all the different reefs we see and the different marine life,” she said.

After three trips, Brittany can spend her break relaxing in the sun on a boat.

After three trips, Brittany can spend her break relaxing in the sun on a boat. “Then I can see Discovery coming back with our next group, so back on the container, back on the sub,” she said.

“Second tour of the day, I’m on the Discovery (shuttle), so I’m taking all those guys off the sub and back to the pier. I’m going to bend over to help tie us up.”

Throughout the day, Brittany sees a litany of marine life, from dolphins to sharks and turtles.

Once she’s tied up the shuttle, she gets the next group of guests on board and “steps on the microphone” to give them a safety briefing and tell them what landmarks they’ll see on their underwater tour.

“For our third tour, when everyone is on board and the hatch is closed, I may go on the barge and rest a little on our tugboat,” said the co-pilot.

“It’s hot so I’ll put on my swimwear and get a little vitamin D then I can watch the Discovery come back with our next group, so back on the container, back on the sub for the fourth tour of the day, I’m the co-pilot.’

As a co-pilot, Brittany can set aside her duties as a guide to ensure all guests board safely and keep an eye out for hazards during the tour.

“I basically just sit back there and make sure we don’t crash into anything. For the most part I just talk to the pilot and have some good old yarn,” she said.

Brittany can take another break during the fifth tour of the day, where she has a snack and reapplies her sunscreen.

After taking the container for a ‘joy ride’ to practice driving, the Aussie leads the sixth and final tour of the day.

“I’ll do one more story and then go back to the surface, open the hatch, take all the passengers back, change, eat again because it’s been ten hours now, and then take the boat back to port and done,” said she.

Brittany’s ‘not your regular 9-5’ job video has been viewed more than 4.3 million times and has generated thousands of comments from viewers who were ‘jealous’ of the copilot’s ‘dreamy’ life.

“The perfect job isn’t ex…oh wait,” said one woman and another agreed, “Well, you have the coolest job ever.”

‘Ohhhhhh that’s cool, it’s a sub tour! I didn’t know that was a thing,” a third wrote.

“My motion sickness could never do, but I would die for this job!” someone else said.
