Penn & Teller will go “Off the Deep End” in an NBC special that will air Nov. 13.

The two-hour show will be the first magic special ever performed entirely underwater, the network said Wednesday. It was filmed in the Caribbean, off the coast of Grand Cayman and the Atlantis, Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas.

Penn & Teller will make a submarine “disappear,” do tricks with sharks and “psychic” dolphins, and perform a new “superillusion” in which they walk on water.

As with their Las Vegas stage act, they will reveal how they pull off their illusions.

“We’ve been living in the Las Vegas desert for years. Nothing but cactus, sand, scorpions and Wayne Newton,” Penn Jillette, the vocal half of the duo, said in a statement. “And we realized it was time to do a show underwater. Magic needs a good head-soaking.”
