Not much more than what you would get at Disney World. While this is a free moving submersible it is only partly submerged. We were fortunate to go when there were only five people on board. Space is Tight and it would be quite tight if it was full. Pretty pedestrian trip. You see some fish although not very well... More

This is advertised as a submarine tour but it is misleading. The boat stays on the surface the entire time and is essentially a glass bottom boat tour. We did see several turtles and lots of reef fish but little else. The entire tour was an hour or less but enjoyable if you have never seen fish swimming around a... More

We'll run operation with friendly staff. The vessel seems clean and tight. You basically go to three sites. A nearby reef with a few fish, a ship wreck where they chum the fish to the boat and an area where the turtles hang out. Did see around 10 turtles and a few small fish. The shipwreck was the highlight of... More

This was our first stop on our first ever cruise and I was excited about our first excursion. I'm afraid it left me feeling a bit underwhelmed. Cramped, on a tiny seat with almost no legroom, inside the sub we set off. The small porthole windows had a film over them and were a bit scratched and making it difficult... More

Unfortunately we had a trip with little visibility the luck of the draw I suppose. The trip for me failed because of the staff. The lady who was in charge of our trip was rude and had a very abrasive manner, something which needs to be addressed. Irene Stewart

We enjoyed an hour's ride in the yellow submarine around the bay in Gustavia, St. Bart's early one morning. We booked this tour for convenience through our cruise ship, but there is a booth right on the dock where anyone can book a ride directly with the owners. After we boarded the submarine we climbed down a steep ladder to... More

We had a confirmed booking for 11.00, but when we arrived we were told that there would be no space for the 2 of us, as priority was given to the people who had booked the trip directly through the cruise ship that lay in the bay, and that we should return at 12.00 as there would then be plenty...

"Eastbaydave"s description of this excursion is accurate however as a person with a physical disability my current range of "adventure" activities is limited.I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and looked at the photos.I had pretty well decided this was out of the question as the viewing area was accessed via a swim ladder.I am unable to walk so a...

The Yellow Submarine is a great way of exploring the underwater marine park of St Barthélémy that was founded several years ago! Since it was founded, apparently the marine life has come back - and indeed marine life there is! While going above the wreck you see plenty of Caribbean colored fish, then along the reef, reefsharks were spotted! And... More

The Yellow Submarine offers an underwater view of sealife, rocks, and a shipwreck at the mouth of Gustavia Harbor. The Yellow Submarine is a yellow boat, but it is not a submarine. It has two decks, one deck above the waterline, and a second deck below the waterline. The underwater deck has windows that enable customers to view scenery in... More
