Paid extra for the combo 500ft and 1000ft combo. Didn't see much at 1000ft, maybe if we had seen more would have been a better review. Too expensive, would have been just as happy going to 500ft only. Difficult, uncomfortable position to maintain for the...More

It's pricey but if you want to dive and scuba's not an option, consider this: a real-live research sub that will take tourists to 500' or even 1,000'. The sub is pressurized so you can't get "the bends" and afterward you don't have to wait...More

Since you did both depths, is it worth the extra $ to do the 1000ft dive rather than the 500ft? Do you really see a large number of different species at the 1000ft depths that you wouldn't get to see at 500ft?

Hi Tina, At 1,000 ft you see different species that you do at 500 ft. What's added to the 1,000 ft dive is the thrill that you go deeper and to a depth where very few have gone before. Kind regards, Substation Curacao
