We weren't really sure what to expect but have to say that this was a fantastic experience. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to Puerto Calero, where we had a little free time to have a look around. We then boarded the submarine down a steep ladder (don't wear a skirt, as I did!!) then were allocated... More

Almost a one hour trip under water. Interesting for the children but a little on the claustrophobic side for my wife and I. You should go once!

When we first booked this we had no idea what to expect. Well this was an experience we will never forget was brilliant. Have been to aquariums many times but this was completely different. The guide on the tour was very good, and full of lots of information. We couldn't believe it when the diver come round with the sting... More

Very short journey down but you did get to see a diver playing with a stringray and a variety of different fish, there are shipwrecks which you see (but I think they are put there deliberately) and the staff were very professional. The seat can be quite high up so you have to bend down to look up at the... More

My husband and me just participate today at submarine safarin at Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, Canary Islands and it was a unique experience. We loved every moment of our excursion on the submarine. The people were very friendly and thanks Max the rep for Costa Teguise we got a nice surprize when Roberto the diver showed us from the other side... More

Many thanks for your kind review. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed every moment. As you say, there are lots of things to do in Lanzarote but only 15 submarines like ours in the world! Signs and special cards held up by our diver can be ordered free of charge by contacting any member of our staff, adding... More

I was a bit apprehensive of going on this but my partner really wanted to do it. I was a bit nervous about feeling a bit claustrophobic but actually the submarine is a lot bigger then you would imagine. Saw quite a lot of different fish, and a 'ship wreck' and a diver swam past waving and bringing schools of... More

An amazing underwater experience, with exceptional customer service! I accidently dropped my camera into the sea after the submarine dive. A very kind crew member went above and beyond and worked tirelessly to retrieve my camera. Saving all my photos! Thank you!

This is one of those things you have to try at least once, thought it was a bit pricey when booking but as there was four of us one went free. Asked about these super savers, Great time had by all and the delight on my sons face made it worth every penny. ( sorry euro ).

A truly magical trip. The staff in the Office & the crew on board couldn't have been more helpful & attentive. I thought I might be a little claustrophobic but not at all, loved the fact that we weren't all squashed in like sardines but had plenty of room, great views & the crowning glory was the Diver holding up...

Many of our clients worry about claustrophobia before diving. Our submarine has seating for 48 passengers and crew. It is 18.5m long, 4m wide and 6.5m high. Each passenger has their own seat and a huge viewport (800mm diameter) shared by two people. The cabin is maintained at normal atmospheric conditions, not affecting pregnant women, heart patients or people with... More
