Certainly not the same vehicles, on the boat they are sitting far too high out of the water. and when they are planing you can clearly see the hull.

If you watch the video until the end you clearly see the car turn in to a boat and from a boat to car.

Here's the web site for anyone who can't see the Facebook link http://watercar.com

Looks similar to the old Gibbs Aquada, although they seem to be making quads now http://www.gibbssports.com

Although it appears to show it in the sea I wonder how long it would last in a long term salt water test? From the FAQ:

Can you use the Panther in Saltwater?
a. With proper maintenance the Panther can be used in salt water. The Panther is constructed of non-corrosive materials wherever possible but, like any vessel exposed to salt water,it is recommended it be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water after use. A light spray with a lubricant like WD 40 will prevent corrosion.
