Back in 2012, Google teamed up with The Catlin Seaview Survey to add underwater imagery from the world's oceans to Street View.

Google just announced that it has new imagery from the partnership up, including from Isla Mujeres and Cancun. On Google+, the company highlights these images of whale sharks at Isla Contoy and the Underwater Museum of Isla Mujeres.

According to The Catlin Seaview Survey, the project is up to 19 countries with over a million images, and they're "just getting started."

They premiered this video at the Economist World Ocean Summit in San Francisco:

"Over the last 2 years we've worked with some fantastic partners including Catlin Group Limited, Google, The University of Queensland's Global Change Institute, The Galapagos National Park & Charles Darwin Foundation, The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the Prince Albert II Foundation," it says.

Earlier this week, Google announced the addition of Street View imagery for the Taj Mahal and other Indian monuments.
