If snorkeling isn't in the cards for you, this is a great way to see tropical fish in their own environment. Well-run and professional, the sub is relatively comfortable even for my six foot plus husband. Very enjoyable.

We seen two small ship wrecks one had a couple reef sharks swimming around it both had lots of small to medium size fish swimming around. We paid 109 each but heard... More

We took our 9 and 7 year old children during a recent trip. They thought is was awesome. The staff do a great job of finding sea life and showing a couple of sunken boats. It would have been better if they explained more about submarine and how it works. The guide who was narrating between pointing sea life out... More

The literature shows one thing full of color and the actual trip was monochrome. I would never have done the trip if the literature showed the actual colors.

Aloha and thank you for your review. At depths below 50 feet a phenomenon called "color absportion" occurs. It is covered in our brochure, as it causes bright colors to take on a gray or blue hue. The incredible underwater world you were seeing would be quite colorful in shallow water, but that is one of the perks of getting... More

The experience was interesting and educational. I think it was worth every dollar spent. If you have kids they will never forget this when they get older. It's a must to have on your to do list.

this was an interesting adventure but was a lot of fun once we headed under water. The sub takes you down to 110 feet to see ship wrecks and lots of fish. Its only a very short boat ride to the sub from the dock. The staff are were great and made you feel at ease.
