Each submarine can dive to 35 metres where the views under the warm Indian Ocean are filled with colourful fish, coral, crab and stingray. Look out of the windows and experience the natural beauty in complete safety while the knowledgeable pilot points out interesting things to see. Choose between the larger BS1100 and the small-party BS600 for the experience to suit you. Both of them will give you a rare life-time adventure not to be missed in Mauritius.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to submarine. We could see the under sea corals, lots of multi coloured fishes and sea turtle. Every thing was perfect, the transfer to submarine from the motor boat, the view and pilot cum guide. It is absolutely safe and there is no health issue as reported by some earlier reviewers. Go for it, though... More

I personally didn't enjoy the submarine dive. Could see very few marine life and a ship wreck. It was quiet boring and not enjoyable. Only the submarine dive was unique otherwise I didn't enjoy the dive very much. Instead of shelling out your money on this, I would recommend you to go for the sub scooter dive with photo shoot...

We are really sorry that you didn’t find any joy in your submarine's trip. It’s quite unique to dive at 35 m. depth in a real submarine. Again, it’s too bad that you didn’t like your dive. Faithfully yours. More

The subscooter experience was an enjoyable one for my 8 year old. He was thrilled by seeing and touching a live octopus. I would recommend this if you have kids between 8 and 15 years old who have not gone underwater yet. The accompanying scuba diver was friendly and helpful

People with sensitive ears must stay way from the Submarine due to the pressure on your ears.. and remember when getting sea sick there are little bags in the submarine which they don't always tell you about.

I think it's a tricky thing to get u to do the subscooter as the family members who did it had ear ache n felt terrible for a week or so. Before being so nice n friendly first of all do mention what can be the truth hidden behind all these beautiful pictures. Submarine was nice but we didn't spot... More

The submarine dives down to depths of 40m. Our dive was postponed for several days due to bad weather but the company were very professional when we contacted them and rescheduled our dive before we flew back. On the morning of the dive we were asked to arrive by 09:15 and after a safety briefing we boarded a motor boat.... More

Did this a day ago and whilst it is an interesting experience I did not enjoy it as much due to being quite sea sick from the rough ride to the boat and then the transfer to the submarine. I wasn't the only one. Once you are in the submarine, it's still and you feel better. I would recommend this... More

Last week we drove a sub scooter with Blue Safaris during our visit to Mauritius. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience whereby you are taken to a boat that is in the Indian Ocean and then gradually dropped to a depth of about 3-5 metres. During the drop one is provided with a bubble-cover that allows one to breathe normally... More

We had the once in a lifetime experience of going in a submarine. The experience is worth every penny u pay. The schools of fish and the corals that surrounded us just made us dumbstruck. The captain and the entire team was so friendly. We spotted both hard and soft corals. There was a ship wreck which was fascinating to... More

We opted for the Sub-scooter + Submarine combo which offers a free lunch as well. We did the sub-scooter first and for me, who is really scared of water, it was quite frightening an experience to go under water. The visibility was not too great and dont know if we did something wrong or if the scooter we got was... More
