Great, for non swimmers alike.
This tour was such fun! We sailed out to the dive area while getting to know our guides. Once there, we were split into two groups, given instruction and off we went. It was so easy to work the individual subs – perfect for those with no previous experience, or just looking for a different way to see the underwater world. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
The subs was Alot of fun an neat. I was worried About the wife in the little glass ball but she handled it just fine. Next time I will do snuba, the sub was slow an you couldn't travel up or down.
The driver for the hotel pick-up was 20 minutes late and impersonal. This was the only down side. Everyone at the boat was friendly and informative. The sub time was a blast, loved it when the divers fed the fish right in front of the sub. The pictures were very overpriced.
Fantastic tour, good boat and crew and great invention. As a diver it was great to do this with my wife and daughter( 12 yo can drive) who had never dived reefs before. It would get a FIVE star except the SUBs are really in bad disrepair, none of my switches worked to stop or go and steering was left or right so I was like a crooked driver with divers pulling my buttons which floated off. The had a big group, twice a day they need to spend money on repairs.
Regardless it was really fun!
We definitely enjoyed this excursion. There were a few downfalls - my SUB did not work properly, but the staff was right on top of it and one of the scuba guides pushed me around to follow the tour. Also, we almost missed the shuttle, but that was through no fault of Stuart Cove's. The cruise line told us the wrong pickup time. Be very sure when you book to use the time Stuart Cove's gives you, and the pickup is OUTSIDE of the docks in the city. It's just right outside the gate though. They also provided snorkeling while we waited for the other groups to go, which was nice. All in all I'd say we were glad we did it, but I'm not sure it's one I would do over and over again.
The pickup times 8:15am and 12:15pm. We were unable to get off the ship untill right at 8:15am and missed the shuttle, however the staff at were helpful and rescheaduled us for the 12:15 shuttle. The ship leaves port early and you must be back ontime, the trip had to be cut a few hours short to our big disapointment, however they did make sure we were back in time to get back on the ship. The trip is well worth the money, it was an awesome experience and in the future we will be doing it again. I would recommend this trip to anyone, the only draw backs are the pick up and drop off times being so close to the time the ship docks and sails.
Good experience. But need to make sure the photographer is with you, otherwise, need to buy a waterproof camera from them before regretting.
My husband and I were so looking forward to the SUB Adventure, especially after reading all the raved reviews. It was indeed an experience, however, we felt that the machines were not in good conditions (i.e. made the steering of left and right pretty taxing) and the underwater scene was nothing too fascinating.
The guides were helpful and informative. They even brought us to the shark reef for a while and we did see sharks!
It was a good experience, as I was doing this for the first time. Proper care was taken by the instructors and there were other divers to look after and see that nothing goes wrong. The only part that I didn't appreciate was that they fed the fish in the ocean to get them closer to us.
The information provided on our ticket for departure time was incorrect so we ended up missing the first bus. The second bus came 1/2 earlier than it said it would be there and if weren't in the area would have missed that one too! You need to be more specific on the timing of when the bus pick you up at the fountain!!! Sub trip was a lot of fun, but the stress of almost missing our tour was NOT fun!!
I felt like the majority of time was wasted on gathering up the group/individuals to for photo ops under water. The machine was difficult to maneuver and it moved a lot slower than I had expected it. I wish we could have gone a little bit longer to make up for the loss time of waiting around for people with more difficult machines. It is a great concept, but the actual excursion was a little disappointing. I would not recommend it to someone else at this price.
i wasnt really impressed with this activity the machine was hard to turn side to side. not all handles has covers. The only part that i like was when I saw a shark while we are riding this bubble. the diver staff showed it to me. the prices for the photos were also ridiculous. they werent even the best photos.
