Owner description: Imagine yourself cruising through an underwater garden filled with tropical fish. This is exactly what you will experience during your 45 minute dive. On board the submarine you will descend to a submerged reef 45 meters beneath the surface. However the first stop is at 25 meters where you will see a colorful display of corals and different types of reef fish. In most of the dives the submarine is greeted by a school of blue or yellow-stripped Snappers. Common Lion-fish, Yellow Box Fish and turtles are usually found here. Next stop at 40 meters is yet another type of coral garden and depending on current the submarine will be beached on a sandy spot just close to a big cave. The exterior lights of the submarine will enable you to see the different types of fish taking shelter inside the cave

What a great experience. Lots of fish and lovely views. Friendly crew who invited us to share their lunch when we surfaced. Once in a lifetime thing.

“Overpriced, half boring, dead seabed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

If you expect a nice ride on a submarine, forget it. The submarine itself is nice, even if seats are quite unconfortable with respect to the windows. The sub reverse from his departure point, then goes down up to 40m in an area with very few corals and not much variety of marine life. The sub will then remain still, with one side facing the corals and the other facing some murky sea. Half of the time is then one of the most boring experience you can ever have.
The dive is done in an area very busy with other boats and not many fishes. Divers around the boat try to bring fishes near by putting some food.
Totally overPriced and not recommended.

“Not yellow, but nice submarine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

A 45 minute visit in the deep. Full of fishes, aprox 30 m underwater. A little bit expensive (aprox 150 dolar / person), but nice.

“One of a kind experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

it is a bit pricey if you are a family, but if you can afford it, it is a great experience to see the under water coral habitation especially if you are not a diver. The crew is extremely polite and very helpful with spotting and explaining the living creatures. You will even see some divers swimming along the submarine. The clear blue water in Maldives really helps see further in the distance.
