"Now you can have an almost uninterrupted view of San Andreas's beautiful underwater habitats. Just think of all the wrecks, waste spills and soon-to-be-extinct species you'll see! Stored and launched from your moon pool."
Warstock Cache & Carry, Kosatka Moon Pool Vehicle description.

The Kraken Avisa is a sub-aquatic vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Avisa is likely based on the U-Boat Worx NEMO and SEAmagine AURORA-6, seen in the front end and bubble cabin.

The Avisa distinguishes itself from the Submersible and Kraken by its compact design and the ample room for four occupants. On the front, the vehicle features two ends fitted with carbon-fiber details and glass cases, where the twin circular lamps are housed in. A chrome defense bar is mounted on these both ends, intended for protection against collisions. The front of the cabin follows the same bubble-like shape as the other two submersibles, but there are multiple circular lamps around it, along with additional twin circular lamps below.

On the sides, numerous circular vents can be seen, which are presumably part of the ballast tank systems, as well as side rear intakes for the propellers and various markings displaying the vehicle's name and the manufacturer emblem. The cabin uses top-hinged glass access doors and silver/chrome frames separating each sections of the cabin, along with a carbon-fiber frame passing over it. The rear area curves down to the rear end and has a vented section on the upper side, together with a carbon-fiber detail behind the cab area.

The rear end of the vehicle has a single red light stripe and a thin vented section above it. The lower area has the corresponding open sections for the propellers and triangular fins below, as well as a rear defense on the lower center. Various markings displaying the vehicle's name and the manufacturer emblem can be seen here as well. Its underside mostly consist of a carbon-fiber bottom of the cabin, the lower frames of the vehicle and what seems to be the ballast tanks.

The interior of the submersible uses a set of dials derived from the V-65 Molotok, with the main dials above and the smaller display gauges below it. The primary color of the vehicle is applied on the body, while the secondary color is applied on the interior.

While the Avisa has an advantage of being able to carry 4 players (unlike the Kraken or Submersible,) it is also significantly slower than any other submarine in the game; the lack of any offensive or defensive measures also puts the Avisa at a major disadvantage when fighting underwater.


If the player has purchased the optional sonar station for their Kosatka, the Avisa gains the sonar function also. Pressing the sonar button will reveal the presence of the daily Hidden Caches which can be collected in the Avisa.

  • Despite being shown in a variety of colors on the Rockstar Games Social Club preview images, it always comes in blue when bought and it cannot be resprayed to any other color.
  • In first-person view, the camera is moved to the front of the vehicle instead of in the player character's head (similar to the APC), despite the Avisa having a fully-modelled interior with transparent windows, and thus no reason for doing so.
  • The side of the vehicle displays a maximum depth range of 2000 meters below sea level. However, it withstands only a fraction of this depth before reaching a crushing depth, being the same for all other submarine vehicles.
