“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Having been to our Welcome Meeting my husband thought this would be a great way to get me underwater and see some fish without getting wet as I am not a strong swimmer.

We arranged to book this on our Wedding Anniversary as a memorable treat - what an amazing trip it turned out to be.

You have a port hole between the two of you so you get a really good view of everything. The diver feeds the fish on both sides of submarine so we got a great view of fantastic stingrays and took some really fantastic photo's.

The submarine is light and airy and not at all claustrophobic and safety is taken very seriously especially since they have a safety boat that follows you throughout the trip.

At the end they give you a certificate which tells you that you been to the bottom of the sea bed and you can also purchase the photo that they take before you boarded. This was really a lovely touch for us as it had the date of our Wedding Anniversary on it as a keepsake.

We would definately recommend this to anyone as it is not at all claustrophobic and you can enjoy the wonders of fish without getting wet.

“Whole family loved it....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had looked at this trip before leaving England so had a rough idea on costs etc.....we booked it at our welcome meeting and got a free child's place. The trip itself lasted approx 1/2 a day, from pick up and drop off from our hotel in Los Gigantes. The coach takes you to the port, were there is a small gift shop and cafe, you also have your picture taken boarding (a nice souvenir for a small €8 cost). Once on board the Sub, which holds around 40 people ( all seated, with cracking views) you leave the harbour, when clear you then start to dive, we went down approx 30 meters and got to see stingrays, barracuda amongst other things, a couple of sunken boats. The dive lasted around 45 minutes and was really enjoyable for the family, our boys, 4 & 5 didn't stop smiling.... Although not the cheapest trip, would certainly recommend.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

A well organised trip from start to finish! You have a port hole between two so get a really good view of everything. The diver feeds the fish on both sides of sub so we got a great view of fantastic stingrays. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Not at all claustrophobic as sub is really light and airy. So pleased we did this trip. Toilets and coffee shop are available before and after you get on the sub as no facilities on board.

“A real underwater treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

If you are a diver or have sailed in submarines this may be tame but for we landlubbers it was a brilliant experience. We were transported to the Marina by coach and our friendly escort gave us the low down on what to expect. I mentioned that it was my wife's birthday. There was little hanging around and within minutes were were down under. We lowered to a depth of 100 feet and within ten minutes we were surrounded by fish, a couple of sting rays and the sunken wreck of a small boat. A diver swam out to feed the fish so they became more animated and from our wide porthole we had a great view. There was a nice surprise for my wife when a birthday greeting card popped up. It was a memorable trip even though the underwater adventure lasted under an hour. Not to be missed if you happen to be on the south west corner of Tenerife.
