The Substation Curacao submarine dive is a must do when visiting the island. It is well worth the money, my husband, daughter, and I had such a good time. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw so many different, beautiful fish and corals. Thank you Bruce and Barry for making such a memorable experience for us.

This is a great tour, a must do, once in a lifetime experience. Great people, free t-shirt, free photos, a diver that takes pictures of you when you decent into the deep! The pilot is very knowledgeable about all the sea life and sub. A bit expensive, but I would recomment it to everybody.

I can't even begin to describe how amazing it is to just send in a submarine to 814 feet, such an amazing out of this world experience! If this is not included on your bucket list, then your bucket list needs revising! Submarine pilot Barbara is amazing, so well informed about sea life and obviously competent at her job, any...

We actually were staying in Aruba, and came over just for the day for this experience. It was a short 20 minute flight (ok the airports on both ends take hours), but still worth it. The entire experience was great, people were friendly, Tico is an awesome pilot and guide, truly loves the water. Got to see fish, we've never... More

The Curasub and Substation staff are super professional, take safety very seriously, and make for an awesome experience. Highly recommended both for tourists and biologists.

As a dive instructor, I found the Substation Curacao experience well done, safe, and interesting. We did a dive to 512 feet in the sub, with Barbara as our pilot. She is one of only four female submersible pilots in the world and she had excellent handling of the sub. The entire experience is well organized and safety is the... More

I am one of the students from CIEE that had the privilege to go in the research submarine at Substation Curacao. It was an amazing experience to get to go down to 525 feet in the ocean and see a part of the earth that not many people get to see. It was very interesting to see the changes in... More

Amazing experience. We were kinda nervous at first but the Substation crew made us feel right at home. (Thanks, Tico!) Very professional. Fun crew. Totally worth the price as this was an experience we'll remember for the rest of our lives. If you go to Curacao, you need to check out Substation Curacao. Dick Rocket

This is really the experience of lifetime! Not only the uniqueness of the depth, vehicle and atmosphere but also professionality of the staff. We booked our deep dive trip in advance (because only 4 people can get into the Sub) and when we arrived at the place they made sure what are our expectations and why we decided to choose... More
