We are really sorry that you didn't appreciate your subscooter trip. During this experience your head is in a dome where you can normally breathe. The place is confined because the subscooter is also not very big. There is a panic button that gives a...More

Fantastic experience and definitely recommended. Service is great and informative. The entire under water experience is 45 minutes and you get shown a Japenese Fishing boat wreck, some coral reefs. We managed to see a turtle, lots of parrot fish and other fish as well.

First time in a sub, feeling was a touch claustrophobic but not to hard to handle, dive lasted about 45 mins with viewing of a ship wreck, coral reefs and various sealife including turtles. Overall a novel experience.

It was lovely but I still felt the time of trip underwater was very short. Nonetheless, I loved it and it was an amazing thing to see the boat wreckage and fish!

We planned this excursion in advance and it didn't disappoint. We spent about a total of 40 minutes submerged and went down to 35 metres.
