Absolutely fantastic experience. Myself and my 10 year old went. The submarine we went in took 10 passengers each with their own window seat. Sub is aircon and very comfortable. A printed Fish guide is provided on each seat. Sub is not claustrophobic at all....More

Fantastic experience and definitely recommended. Service is great and informative. The entire under water experience is 45 minutes and you get shown a Japenese Fishing boat wreck, some coral reefs. We managed to see a turtle, lots of parrot fish and other fish as well.

First time in a sub, feeling was a touch claustrophobic but not to hard to handle, dive lasted about 45 mins with viewing of a ship wreck, coral reefs and various sealife including turtles. Overall a novel experience.
