Our family with three children (7, 9 and 11) really enjoyed this activity. The under water sub really gives you a chance to see the goings on without scuba diving.

Awesome trip. Fabulous seeing what was below. Mata provided a really informative commentary. Highlight was seeing Giant Trevalley being fed and playing around the boat, coral regeneration and especially the turtle.More

Kia Orana. The trip is between one and a quarter hours and one and a half hours. Sometimes slightly longer if we are with whales.
