Attraction details
Owner description: 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

“An opportunity for non divers to look at deep sea ( 30 metres )”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I was disappointed as the submarine travelled hardly 100 metres and the coral reef was mostly dead. Donot expect a National Geographic experience!

“Not up to expectations”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Nice experience, however dead corals and less marine life ( mainly tunas ), which is mainly caused due to heavy boat traffice around Male. Submarine should go further away from Male, nearby islands have indeed nice marine life. Recommendable for first time visitors to Maldives.

“Submarine”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Interesting experience if you don't dive. Depending on the crowd, you might have to switch seat after 20min, as the interesting part is all on one side. Advance booking is recommended if the weather has been good, and cancellation is common.
