3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Just wanted to feel what it's like in a submarine. After the initial excitement, it became somewhat boring. Nothing much to see except little fishes crowding the glass windows, as curious to see us humans as we are to see them. Visibility was poor, up to only a few yards away. They recommend going around 10am to 2pm when the sun is at its brightest, and in good weather conditions. Trip takes around 45mins and goes down to about 40 feet under. To end the trip, some scuba divers popped out brandishing corals and a puffer fish which he held against the glass while the guide commented that it's like an angry bird character. Poor fish! :(
Kind of expensive, (PHP900 discounted price, about PHP1,200 regular price, I think) but what the heck, I just had to do it once. I enjoy scuba diving thousand times more than this.
It's located in Imperial Resort and waterpark in Mactan Island, Cebu.

“Damaging the corals”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We went here and to my disappointment, the divers are stressing and killing pufferfish and seahorse for the show. This is very bad as well.
No corals to see. Few fishes are swimming. Such a big disappointment to support the killers of the ocean. As per Yellow Submarine, they are instructing the divers for show. Show is to kill underwater creatures.
