“Excellent underwater adventure”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

My husband and I did this trip on a day visit to lanzarote. I was apprehensive as I suffer from seasickness however it was amazing. The staff were helpful and friendly, the submarine was far more spacious than we had imagined. The motion underwater was nothing for mr to have worried about and I felt fine. We saw loads of fish, very clearly, as well as ship wrecks and a stingray, some saw sharks but unfortunately we didn't. It was a very enjoyable, unique experience, worth the money.

“First time”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Amazing undersea views, comfortable and spacious submarine the diver surrounded by fish was amazing..an old fishing boat had been sunk near to the harbour wall to act as a reef very surreal to see such a site close up.

“Submarine Atlantic Ocean”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Going to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean was amazing just a shame we didn't see a bigger variety of fish.

It was well organised trip, free pick up from the nearest pick up and drop off from your hotel. Submarine was great, lovely sea bed views. Kids loved it. amazing experience.
Will go again next time. You also get a certificate and a pic for 8 Euros, helpful staff. They even shared their WiFi password with me.

“Not very good value for money”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

It was a very expensive excersion and we though that it really wasn't worth the money we paid. Also the whole tour was delivered in German even though we kept telling the tour guide that we didn't understand a word of what they were saying, very poor :-(

paul b, Manager at Submarine Safaris SL, responded to this review, June 22, 2013
Dear Sir/Madam,
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your dive with us. Our excursion is not cheap this fact we can agree with you, but this is due to the nature and expense of taking 44 passengers down over 100ft (30m)to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and safely back. With regards to our guide only speaking German, this is not correct. Our guides speak a number of languages (English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Polish, Swedish, Dutch and Finnish).
The English language is spoke on ever dive as 52% of our client base are either British or English speaking. When we start to take bookings for a dive we limit the number of languages per dive to maximum of 3. The reason is so we can give as much information about the dive and the underwater world as possible, in the language our clients understand. We use an actual guide rather than audio tape as we know our clients prefer a guide in person and also each dive can be different from the last.
Again we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the experience with us. If you do come back to Lanzarote, hopeful you will allow us a second chance to show you what a wonderful experience diving with us can be.
