About Whale Submarine Maldives
Imagine yourself cruising through an underwater garden filled with tropical fish. This is exactly what you will experience during your 45 minute dive. On board the submarine you will descend to a submerged reef 45 meters beneath the surface. However the first stop is at 25 meters where you will see a colorful display of corals and different types of reef fish. In most of the dives the submarine is greeted by a school of blue or yellow-stripped Snappers. Common Lion-fish, Yellow Box Fish and turtles are usually found here. Next stop at 40 meters is yet another type of coral garden and depending on current the submarine will be beached on a sandy spot just close to a big cave. The exterior lights of the submarine will enable you to see the different types of fish taking shelter inside the cave

The submarine experience was good but the underwater tour was not satisfactory because we were expecting a vibrant underwater life. The submarine goes down to about 120 feet to the ocean floor that has a reef and stays there for about 45 minutes where half...More

I think the whale submarine is just working on the hype that it has created around its name. The prices are too high as far as the experience u get in it. The trip they say is for 45 minutes but actually it is only...More

Thank you for your response. Whale submarine dives into natural waters and therefore the marine life, underwater current, visibility and many other factors are beyond the control of the pilot. Usually we turn the submarine and take passengers to the seabed and land the submarine....More

Water is not clear so we hardly see things. I think if u already know that the current is not good u better cancel the trip coz it costs a lot to go down there but when u cant see things then its not worth.
