Thought the submarine might be a bit claustrophobic but was OK with excellent views. The highlight was when the two divers were feeding the fish right outside the windows so you could get a better view of them. For the price though we thought the trip could have been a bit longer but would definitely recommend for those who don't... More

What a brilliant time we had on the submarine. My wife was dubious due to the size but once your aboard you'll be surprised how much room there actually is. You have a TV monitor to see the decent down and also have the portholes to look through. The seating is 2 side by side. A diver also follows on... More

This was a great experience for me as I have mild claustrophobia and I thoroughly enjoyed this.The sub dives to about 30 metres belwo the surface. Very comfortable on board and not at all cramped. It's not something I would necessarily want to do again though.......once you've done it here there's nothing much else to see.

Great to hear you enjoyed the experience and especially good to hear you were comfortable inside our submarine. Our submarine is designed for safety and total comfort so our passengers can fully enjoy their diving experience. The cabin is spacious and is maintained at normal atmospheric conditions, so pregnant women, heart patients and persons with ear problems will not be... More

We were intriged by the possibility of going in a submarine so decided to go for it. The whole thing lasted about an hour, a tug boat took us out to sea and then we dived down to the sea bed. A plethora of sea life and ship recks followed. Would have liked to see more variety in sea life... More

Indeed there is a plethora of fish around our dive site and octopus have been seen occasionally. Our submarine dives in the Atlantic Ocean, every dive is different. We cannot guarantee the types of fish you will see, but you will see lots! Many thanks for taking the time to submit your review. More

This was a good couple of hours spent. The guide was friendly, good safety briefing , escorted us every step of the way, even make sure you don't lose your step getting into the sub. The pace is nice and steady, nothing to freak out over, everything was very tranquil. The bus can be arranged to collect you from near... More

Our excursion is guided from start to finish, including the bus pick up. Clients are free to explore the marina both before and after their dive. Some clients arrange for a later return bus (subject to availability) and stay in the Marina for lunch. Great to hear you enjoyed the dive. Many thanks for taking the time to submit your... More

Just got back from Lanzarote and we went on the submarine safari. We all loved it (have two sons aged 11 & 12) We stayed in playa blanca and it prob took 40 mins on the coach organised by the company themselves. We booked on line on their own website as it saved 15% on the price. The submarine is... More

WOW!!! this was something we wanted to do from the moment we heard about it. We booked through our travel reps. On the day out coach transfer was on time and the guide was friendly and jokes with us all en route to the marina. The sub can sit around 40 people but there is plenty of space on board... More

Thanks to Submarine Safaris in Lanzarote for making it a holiday to remember for myself and my fiancée. I had a E-Mail conversation with Paul (who I believe is the general manager) over a couple of weeks, he answered all my questions really quickly and was very informative. When I confirmed my reservation once on the island I got a... More
