Amazing experience. We were kinda nervous at first but the Substation crew made us feel right at home. (Thanks, Tico!) Very professional. Fun crew. Totally worth the price as this was an experience we'll remember for the rest of our lives. If you go to Curacao, you need to check out Substation Curacao. Dick Rocket

This is really the experience of lifetime! Not only the uniqueness of the depth, vehicle and atmosphere but also professionality of the staff. We booked our deep dive trip in advance (because only 4 people can get into the Sub) and when we arrived at the place they made sure what are our expectations and why we decided to choose... More

Three days before our confirmed reservation dive on January 15th, I received an email from Barbara informing me because of a scheduling conflict on the 15th, she would like to reschedule my dive on another day. I found this to be both puzzling and disappointing because my reservation was made in October and secured with a $650 wired deposit. When... More

The sub dive that we did yesterday morning really was amazing. The staff were very professional and went into detail about the safety measures and life support on the sub. They take tons of pictures during the whole event, and give them to you on a USB drive when it's all done. They made sure that we were comfortable with... More

What more can I say? This is definitely a once in a lifetime, unique experience. We spent 2 weeks in the Caribbean - this was the highlight of our trip. I was afraid I would get seasick getting the sub into the water. I guess I have watched too much Discovery channel. On the Discovery Channel the research subs are... More

If you have any interest in sea exploration, you'll love Substation Curacao. The sub is actually used for research when not carrying tourists to the sea floor. The sub ho. s 5, but they are close quarters. My wife's claustrophobia was not an issue; however, the exprerirence is better when the group is small. In our case, there were only... More

This was truly an incredible experience! From the minute we arrived, we were treated like old friends, and couldn't have asked for a better time. All the staff were incredible - Barry, Bruce, Tico, and Rob - so knowledgeable and helpful, we had fun the entire time we were there. Our pilot, Tico, was awesome - can't say enough -... More

The great crew at substation made our tv shoot a success. Bruce was a pleasure and Barbara was a fantastic pilot. We were able to get all the shots we needed. A great experience for our crew. Looking forward to the next chance to dive with them.

This was definitely "the" highlight of our Curacao vacation! From the fun, knowledgeable staff to the dive itself, it's a memory we'll hold for a lifetime! Thanks to our Pilot Tiko, who took us to 613 ft! Incredible beyond words! This once-in-a-lifetime adventure was worth every single penny! Highly recommend the Curasub for anyone looking for adventure not available anywhere... More

This is amazing. Yes, I know that word gets thrown around a lot (eg. “This cheesecake is amazing!”) This really is: This is one of the last unexplored places on earth. Trimix diving allowed specially-trained scuba divers to go to these depths for 8 minutes, and then ascend slowly over the course of about 4 hours to allow the body... More
