I was proper excited about this trip. not disappointed either. yes it is a bit pricey but as I'm fascinated by the undersea world a first go on a sub had to be done. The trip is about right really time wise for what it is. It is also a bit staged as there is a line of "shipwrecks" one... More

This trip was expensive but probably worth it as a 'once in a lifetime' kind of thing. We didn't get to see a great deal of types of fish and the waters weren't very clear but its not the sort of thing I ever expected to do. I thought it may be dingy and cramped inside but it was totally... More

Bit expensive (we took the Thomson excursion), but fun! The sub feeds the fish so they follow, and you're not out for too long. A dive certificate is included, 8 Euros for a photo.

We considered this during our stay in Lanzarote as part of a birthday treat and were a little concerned about the price. However, we are so glad we went for it and booked a tour as it was spectacular. We were picked up from a designated location which was not far from our villa by a company coach and taken... More

I'm a diver as a hobby and didn't expect much but was bringing my wife and a friend so they could experience life under water. There were astounded by it and i must say i was pleasently surprised.

never been in a sub before, so, it was a whole new experience for us, there was a live running commentary through out the "dive" which was very informative, loved the, live monitor, by each window, telling you, your depth, and showing where you where.

This is an expensive trip, but we were excited to go and have a good time. The trip was booked through First Choice and this was where the problems began. The coach was late, and then took an hour picking up other guests from various hotels. I believe this is because we were staying in Costa Teguise so we were... More

The trip on the submarine is indeed around 45/50 minutes. During this time you will enjoy the whole experience of diving on a real submarine. The moment you step on board clients are fascinated with the digital displays in front of each window, explaining how deep they are, what the water temperature is and what direction they are travelling in....
