I was not that impressed by the experience. The dive was pretty short and the fish was saw had nothing exceptional. We tested scuba diving a few days before and we saw much more. So maybe the experience would have been different if we did the submarine before trying diving.

Had a great afternoon on the submarine. It started with a safety briefing at the centre and then a short walk to board. Each couple get two seats at a viewing porthole. The submarine pasted a few sunken wreaks. I am sure they were sunk in that position just for the trip. A diver followed the sub and dived with... More

To everyone who is saying that this is expensive, it is not. Just think about the cost of insurance for a unique experience such as this. This is without getting into the maintenance, paying the pilots, the staff, the support boat crew, electricity for recharging the boat and the mooring fees in a prime location in a very pleasant and...

A very professional company with your safety in mind. We started our tour from the Hotel with the Submarine bus. On arrival at the Marina in Puerto Calero we had time to explore the local shops and market. Our briefing,which was in several languages, was explained thoroughly. All care was shown during our embarking onto/off the sub. Staff were excellent.... More

As we were staying at the nearby Hesperia my partner and I were looking for something to do when we came across this. The chance to go on a submarine is not one that comes about too often. The views whilst down there were something else with plenty of shipwrecks and fish to see. We were lucky enough to also... More

very disappointing, but expensive trip. It was a case of being herded on and then off. the dive it self was very boring, seeing some fish that were clearly being attracted due to being fed from the submarine. The tour was a large circle, not much to see apart from some fish and two sunk boats. Would not recommend.

We are very sad to hear you felt like being herded around. When clients arrive in Puerto Calero via our free bus service, clients are escorted to our offices for a briefing. Our guides always wait for the group to arrive in our office before the briefing begins. Clients then have free time to wander around the marina at their... More
