It's pricey but if you want to dive and scuba's not an option, consider this: a real-live research sub that will take tourists to 500' or even 1,000'. The sub is pressurized so you can't get "the bends" and afterward you don't have to wait 24 hours before flying, as you would with scuba. Nor do you have to worry... More

Substation has an awesome group of people running the place. Barbara is super responsive and accommodating. We had difficulties in scheduling the dive during our week of travel due to the sub's annual maintenance during that period. Barbara was very flexible and was able to get us in on the last day because the inspection was completed a bit ahead... More

Substation Curacao is a fun and unique tour. We aren't scuba divers, so we found this to be a neat alternative to see sea life. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The pre-tour video highlights safety features and can make you a bit nervous about possible scenarios, but the crew inspires confidence. The sub is small, but we didn't feel... More

A fantastic experience and relaxed way to explore the beautiful depths of the Caribbean Sea well beyond the limits of scuba diving with a very dedicated and professional organization. Thanks to the highly motivated crew for the unforgettable dive, enjoyed every minute of the trip.
