Wow! I haven't ever before experienced anything like watching the sunlight disappear from view above me while descending into the ocean... It felt so special to experience this section of habitat and life on earth, totally inaccessible in my everyday life. Due to the novelty of the experience and the optics of the window, for the first 30 mins I couldn't get my brain to process the visual information out the window as "real," and instead it appeared as virtual reality to me—an "unbelievable experience". This shifted when I looked out the window at our feet, which had less of an angled lens. If this happens to you, that's my tip. What a cool issue to have-- so new and striking that it feels like a movie. Karl was generous with sharing information about the deep-sea life we encountered and anecdotes about his experiences underwater. I feel grateful to him for teaching me so much and providing this opportunity. We opted for the -2000 ft. trip and saw various corals, fish, mollusks, sea lilies, and a dumbo octopus (truly spectacular). We were in awe for the full 3.5 hours.

Karl is so much fun. Our journey on the Idabel was unparalleled in excitement, awe, and fun. We did the whole thing - 2000ft below to see the six gills. Not only did we see the shark, we saw so many other creatures I'd been reading about and coveting since I was a little kid. I can't recommend this excursion or Karl enough. Worth every penny and I would do it again tonight! A previous reviewer said it best..."don't overthink it - just go."

This was a pretty wild experience. I felt like Neal Armstrong landing on the moon. It was a really good time. I’m thankful for the detailed explanations of what to expect that was spelled out on the website before booking.

Absolutely amazing trip. We went on the Lopehila Reef excursion and I will never forget how magnificent it was. When down there Karl had an amazing eye for spotting all the life and was telling us all about what things were and how ancient they are! There were things I know we would have never noticed but he pointed them out so skillfully. The reef itself is unlike anything I have ever seen and the fish were so unique. I would highly recommend doing this excursion for the opportunity to see this unbelievable ecosystem. I would say this was a once in a lifetime trip you cannot miss (and it definitely is!!) but if I'm ever back and had the means I absolutely would go again. Karl was fantastic, his sub is fantastic, and there is truly nothing else like this.
