Interesting to see closely the underwater sea life and sunken ships. The sea crew were nice. The submarine experience is great; however, it is small and you cannot move around!. My husband found it boring at times because we cannot always see something worthwhile

So the boat ride to the submarine was more entertaining than the actual submarine excursion. For a first experience it’s okay, but it’s not something I’d do again. I was actually bored at times because there are long moments when one side won’t see anything...More

The concept is great. However the view is not what you see if the brochure. The view is very cloudy, pictures turn out gray. The fish which are colorful when snorkeling and basically gray because of the cloudy nature of the waters you go in.

It is a very small space, so there's a good chance you'll feel uncomfortable. It's a semi submarine though, so if at anytime you can't take it, you could go up top and just enjoy the cruise without the underwater views.
