The most awesome adventure we ever took. I am a former submariner and found the 500+ foot dive to be awesome. Diving is great, but you cannot go deep for long. And, this sub, unlike my past sub service, has windows! Don't hold back, do it, you only live once. Thanks to the crew also, they were most accommodating.

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 longer tour. All in all happy we did it, just disappointed that we didn't see... More

We visited Curacao on a MicroActivist Expedition to discover all the underwater treasures the country has to offer. Substation Curacao went above and beyond to make our sub trip the most amazing experience we could have ever imagined. Our 10 year old ocean lover son was able to go to 1000 ft and visit a shark research station! His mission... 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 24 hours before flying, as you would with scuba. Nor do you have to worry... More

Substation has an awesome group of people running the place. Barbara is super responsive and accommodating. We had difficulties in scheduling the dive during our week of travel due to the sub's annual maintenance during that period. Barbara was very flexible and was able to get us in on the last day because the inspection was completed a bit ahead... More

I dove in the Curasub twice in August, and it was wonderful. All the staff treated me great; they're very accomodating of odd requests (e.g., they let me test my Niskin bottle at depth, took me over to the harbor to let me look over the R/V Chapman, etc.) Everybody is knowledgable, not just about the submersible, but also about...
