Sunk ship

We were stuck on the surface in the submarine for a while and a lot of people got woozy including myself and the sea life wasn't really what I expected. Very hazing and brown with a few fish but that's really it. Saw a sunk ship which was the highlight. Wouldn't recommend this.

Deep but shallow

I enjoyed the experience. I was disappointed about the the things to see. No large fish! I thought we might see sharks. The narrator was too loud especially when translating in Spanish making annoying.

Tour guide looked bored

The tour was short, and the tour guide during the actual submarine part looked extremely bored. We could barely understand him and he didn’t talk for more than half of the tour. I don’t feel like it was worth the money.

I was not a fan at all. If you are...

I was not a fan at all. If you are sitting on the left side of the boat once coming down, you do not get to see anything. This tour is not worth the money that i spent. 80 of our view was nothing but ocean water. The tour guide on talking loud on the radio phone the whole tour as well. I was so disappointed. Do not waste your money.

This was an amazing experience. There's nothing like the views you get at the bottom of the sea.
