It is not hands above a good snorkeling trip, but it is neat to dive down and get a good look at the coral for an hour for a minimum physical effort.

A Good Experience to get to the bottom of the Ocean and see the extremely colorful underwater life. Different species of fish and a variety of corals.

Although the sub took us deep but unfortunately not much marine life were to be seen. The trip per person is very costly almost around 10000 rupees per person for half an hour experience which i feel is very high for the things they show in there. I feel snorkeling gives u better feel then the sub dive.

First we were told that there was a delay in reaching the submarine, then we were told there was another delay, then we were offered a "night dive" which we refused, as... More

The operators demand $85 US in cash before boarding.

The destination reef is actually in the middle... More

Beautiful beaches, hotels, and a wonderful place to scuba, snorkel and just unwind. Very hot, don't forget your sunscreen and bug spray.

It's not every day you get to go on a real submarine just because it's such a unique attraction. Without hesitation we booked it and the whole experience was great from start to finish, despite super strong currents that day limiting the ability of the sub to turn around. Having said that 80 meters down the world looks a whole... More

Its a good experience to go under the water in a submarine. You may not get this kind of experience normally. If you are diver this may be boring. For the time spent inside the water i didnt see any big or variety of fishes or sea creatures except the reef. $85 for a 45 mins dive (without seeing much... More

We saw a lot of different fishes and we didn't feel any pressure in your ears when going down or up.
