Home rental company Airbnb and BBC are giving three lucky people the chance to win a vacation in the Bahamas as ocean explorers aboard OceanX's Alucia—the ship used to film the British channel's nature documentary, Planet Earth: Blue Planet II.

The trip goes from April 4 to 8, 2018, and includes two nighs on Alucia and two nights in an Airbnb home on the Bahamas, as well as flights, meals, entertainment, and other expenses.

During the expedition portion of the trip, winners will get to travel on the research vessel's two submarines through the waters off Cape Eleuthera—a particularly biologically diverse area in the Atlantic Ocean—going as deep as 3,300 feet below the surface. Back aboard Alucia, travelers will join Blue Planet II's producer Orla Doherty and the vessel's research crew to learn about filming the documentary and their work on the ship.

To enter, visit Alucia's listing on Airbnb by February 10 and submit your answer to the following question: "Tell us about your ideal deep sea adventure—what do you dream of exploring beneath the waves?" Winners must be fluent in English and observe a few house rules, including: no fishing, no skinny dipping, no selfies, and no sleepwalking or night swimming. Probably best not to be claustrophobic, either. 

You can catch Planet Earth: Blue Planet II, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, on BBC America on Saturdays at 9 p.m. EST.
