This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. My son (2 years old) and my husband (who doesn't like doing these types of things) thoroughly enjoyed the submarine. We saw so many different fish and beautiful coral. We even got to see a sea tortoise. The submarine was not full so we had enough space to... More

When I saw that this tour was available, I was dubious of the quality. I should not have worried. All the parties were professional. They provided a guided tour on the way to the ship, and then a quick but thorough safety speech, then onto the submarine. The water was pretty rough that day, but they were conscious of that...

It's a amazing one... A complete 45 minutes under sea experience. Our captain Samuel was very good guy and made our dive of 35 feet memorable. They presented us with certificate of Diving at the end of the journey. One can see sea turtle, snake various species of fishes.. One must try this but be aware of charges... Here various... More

This is one of the unique experiences that you can get only in Mauritius. We had done it in 2009 and this was our second visit. The overall time taken for the ride is approx 20 minutes. However the wait and the transfer time included makes it almost a half day event. The submarine takes you to a dept of... More

I never thought that I would be in a real submarine. It was quite something amazing. I saw a ton of fish and the guide was friendly and very informative. I would recommend this experience to anyone wanting a real adventure. The underworld was fantastic.

What a way to see the ocean! Myself and my son was a bit concerned about being claustrophobic but it wasn't at all, as you have a window to look out of. The submarine is small but you feel very safe inside and the view is breath taking. The pilot is very good he makes sure that you see all... More

Don't think there are many other places where a civilian can go into a real submarine!! The experience was unique relaxed and fun. The staff are friendly and explain everything so you feel safe. It is extremely easy and safe but people with claustrophobia and cardiac conditions should not go. Downside is the corals we see down are mostly dead... More

I've done the underwater safari in a 5 seater submarine yesterday and loved every moment of it. What you get to experience once you are 35 meters below the sea level is truly unique and unforgettable. The colours change, your mind sharpens and your eyes open into seeing the beauty of the underwater world. Incredible experience. Out of all different... More

We both dont swim and are scared of water. But the blue safari scooter and submarine was an excellent experience. The staff was extremely good, humble. The divers were very reassuring. Full thumbs up for this and must do.

We did the undersea walk on our last visit (it was great!), so decided on the submarine trip this time. A boat takes you out to where the submarine goes from, then a safety talk, and down the hatch! There were 10 of us on board, including a child; plenty of space, so no feeling of claustrophobia, and you descend... More
