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...more
Boarded the ferry boat from "Jetty N0 2" and after a short ride on arrival at the "Whale Submarine" station we queued to purchase tickets with each ticket costing U.S $ 90 .The ‘Whale Submarine’ of "Tourist Submarines Maldives Pvt Ltd" owned by former Home...More
From the booking to the coordination of tourists to the counting and grouping of people: absolute nightmare as staff did not seem to know what was going on.
Despite being more than half an hour early, there was another hour's worth of delay from the...More
A must visit when anyone visits Maldives. Whale Submarine experience was a great one. The guide directed us exceptionally well. It's a 45 minutes tour in the Submarine. Total time taken from and to Jetty is around 1 hour 30 minutes. What you can see...More
The submarine experience was good but the underwater tour was not satisfactory because we were expecting a vibrant underwater life.
The submarine goes down to about 120 feet to the ocean floor that has a reef and stays there for about 45 minutes where half...More
I booked at TripAdvisor.com (Viator) with $85. ( I came across another site which offered $75 but they never replied to my email. ). Trying to save money by using Viator in other places in the world (such as Pisa Tower) is said to be...More
My husband and I booked this tour online via aviator. It costs $85 per person. They first pick you up from the Jerry at Male on a boat. Then they take you to the submarine sight. Once all passengers checked in you board the submarine...More
I think the whale submarine is just working on the hype that it has created around its name. The prices are too high as far as the experience u get in it. The trip they say is for 45 minutes but actually it is only...More

Thank you for your response.
Whale submarine dives into natural waters and therefore the marine life, underwater current, visibility and many other factors are beyond the control of the pilot. Usually we turn the submarine and take passengers to the seabed and land the submarine....More
Went with my wife and daughter on Oct 16th. Saw lots of marine life and loved the experience. Booking direct will help you save the USD 10 commission that hotels usually charge. submarine is air conditioned and they offer you water. Crew onboard is available...More
For the amount of money you pay, you don't get a very exciting and amazing experience. We probably had bad luch as the sea was a bit rough and the submarine was moving like crazy while staying at its platform, we got first inside the...More

Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately you have joined us on a day where sea was very rough. On a smoother day, I am sure you would NOT be disappointed by the experience. Yes the platform is undergoing a major renovation and there is a...More

No kids are not allowed. Moreover it's up to you to leave the child with the attendant which I think is not very safe. Moreover the whale submarine is overhyped so can safely skip it. I would rather suggest you to choose another destinations than Maldives till Ur child is 6-7 years. Becoz here there are all water borne activities which might become very difficult for u with the infant.

I am not sure whether the booking done through trip advisor will be accepted by whale submarine. More over when the whale submarine is asking to pick up at jetty 1 male city than go according to them only. We were staying at Taj exotica do the hotel jetty took us directly to the whale submarine and offcourse at a charge.
