When I looked at the web site I thought this is a marine biology station that earns some money on the side. Turns out, it is a one man operation, who has built the submersible himself - not licensed, not inspected, not certified. There is no way he would be allowed to operate in the U.S. Admittedly, the vessel looks highly professional and technologically advanced, but I do not know nothing about how reliable and safe it is - and when you go down, nobody even knows that you are there, and if you do not come up, nobody would notice.
This said, the adventure itself is very worthy. Not that you would see something extraordinary - you probably will see more fish snorkeling at the adjacent beach. But the feeling of being 1000 feet underwater, with all these tons of seawater above, gliding over the coral reef shelf - this is some experience, indeed.
One tip: Karl kindly provides the passengers with an SLR camera synchronized with an outside flash. However, if the camera is set to autofocus, it does not, because it has to focus before the flash flashes. So, if you do not want to have all your shots blurred, do switch to the manual focus.
Speaking of minor issues, it is somewhat annoying that you do not learn the real price of the tour until you start paying. The quoted price does not include the Honduras tax and the paypal fees (which I still do not understand, why these are charged, if I am paying paypal with a bank transfer; paypal only charges extra fee for credit cards transactions).
