Not claustrophobic at all, in fact plenty of room and you're able to move about at certain times. It was cool and comfortable down there (went down to 34 metres), about the only time I was cool and comfortable in Lanzarote !! The guides are very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions, they made it all the more enjoyable. I... More

30m below blue ocean looking at wrecks, stingray and too many fish to count. Good trip for family. Need to be mobile enough to navigate ladders in and out so the older folks may need to be prepared. I didn't actually believe it would go as deep but it sat on bottom for a while and evidently can go to... More

Had our dive today and absolutely loved every minute!!!! Pick up bang on time by very pleasant bus staff. Enough time before dive to relax and watch safety film. Once on board the submarine we were straight off and dived as soon as clear of the harbour. The inside of the sub is very spacious, even for my 6ft 3in... More

This was supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread according to reviews,etc. however I would say we were more than disappointed.it was not a lot better than snorkelling in a swimming pool to be fair.over-priced for what it is,really just to be able to say we spent an hour on a small submarine.sorry but we felt robbed and...

We are sorry to hear our excursion did not live up to your expectations. Our submarine is one of only 15 of its kind in the world. It is a very large submarine with 44 seats diving to 100ft or 30 meters to the sea bed of the Atlantic Ocean. We cannot please all the people all the time and... More

It was a birthday surprise for my wife. I booked it online before making the trip to Lanzarote. They kept me informed and on arrival the staff looked after you from start to finish. The dive was excellent seeing lots of fish, shipwreck and the string ray, I also arranged the message service the diver does and it went so... More

Great to hear you enjoyed the experience of diving with us. The divers do not drag the stingrays around, they follow the diver for food. After years of diving together our scuba team and resident rays have formed a special bond. Current prices are Adults €55 Children (2-14 yrs) €34. This price also includes a return coach transfer from all... More

I love being in the sea and underwater so I booked this trip thinking it would be perfect for me. The 'cabin' was spacious and seats were comfortable, but there was no fan or air con so it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. There's a screen showing an outside camera so you're able to watch the submarine go underwater which... More

The interior of the submarine is air conditioned for clients comfort and the temperature is maintained between 21 and 22 degrees, humidity is 60%. In the past we have found clients feeling anxious about diving 100ft to the sea bed of the Atlantic are a little nervous inside the submarine and tend to feel hot, this is usually overcome as...

This was a very good experience. We were worried about the trip intially but when we got there it was obvious you were going to be well looked after. The only wobbly bit was walking along the floating gangway to the sub but there was help if you neede it so don't be put off by that. Once in the... More

June 2016; my partner and I stayed in Playa Blanca, this trip was advertised through Thomson in our Hotel. We have never been on a Submarine before; my parents did it last year in Tenerife so we decided to have a go too and booked the trip with the Thomson Rep.

Many thanks for your recommendations. Entry to our submarine is via an almost vertical 9ft ladder, (as you say, not that bad) our agents and tour operators are advised to inform clients of this in advance. Photos of these ladders can be found on our website along with a 15% discount for booking in advance. Great to hear you found... More
