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 the first stop is at 25 meters where you will see a colorful display of corals and different types of reef fish. In most of the dives the submarine is greeted by a school of blue or yellow-stripped Snappers. Common Lion-fish, Yellow Box Fish and turtles are usually found here. Next stop at 40 meters is yet another type of coral garden and depending on current the submarine will be beached on a sandy spot just close to a big cave. The exterior lights of the submarine will enable you to see the different types of fish taking shelter inside the cave

This is a good experience for those who don't dive nor snorkel. I felt safe through out and saw lots of fish, turtles etc. dive location is not the best, but they don't have much options. Refreshments and friendliness of staff are good. Everything goes smooth. Something fun to try.

A unique experience quite worthwhile. However, if you were hoping for an underwater ride you will be disappointed as the submarine is submerged into the water and then brought back up again. As for the view, the many hues of blue you get to see while taken under is breathtaking. There are also corals and fish of different variety on... More

Excellent from start to finish. Coach arrived precisely on time, the port is a pleasant hide-away and after a welcome the guests .A submarine is way outside most folks regular experiences . The underwater experience is something we will remember fondly and recommend highly to all. Just remember it's a proper submarine and you need to be able to climb... More

Was really exciting to get into a submarine for the first time....amazing to view undersea and divers keep feeding the fish for people to have a look....the depth of the sea is also shown on a screen on the side

Having directly booked the submarine trip at a huge margin, we were happy to join the crowd from Jetty No.2 at Male city. The underwater trip at a cost of 85 USD was enjoyable, but we thought we would be taken a little far and deeper. there were lots of life forms on one side, but the other side was... More

This is once in a lifetime experience, there are not many places in the world you will have an opportunity to get into a submarine. I felt its a little overpriced but again its not a common adventure. The sea view is amazing from under the sea, the company also uses divers to feed the fish as you sail bringing... More

Experience: Amazing experience. Highly recommended. Process:We have booked this trip throuh our hotel (at hulhumale). It is advised to book the trip beforehand. If the booking is confirmed, hotel authority will take necessary steps for sending you to the submarine site. Price: It is really difficult to identify the official price for the trip. Our hotel took USD 90 per... More

Its my 1st time going on a submarine. Really just the word submarine makes me excited. But when you are inside the submarine it doesn't feel that special. Yes the experience is nice but its like you are doing a snorkling or diving but not getting wet. The fishes and corals you see is not that special either. How i... More
