I think the whale submarine is just working on the hype that it has created around its name. The prices are too high as far as the experience u get in it. The trip they say is for 45 minutes but actually it is only...More

Thank you for your response. Whale submarine dives into natural waters and therefore the marine life, underwater current, visibility and many other factors are beyond the control of the pilot. Usually we turn the submarine and take passengers to the seabed and land the submarine....More
