This was a new experience. Was a great experience viewing history of WWII. The fish including the two-legged ones were fun to watch.
It was a wonderful trip. Just long enough, not too long. Tip: if you are a party of four or more, try to sit opposite each other, half the cool fish scene is on the other side, so cover your bases.
My boyfriend and I came to Aruba for the first time and wanted to explore the sea tour options. This tour was great for us as it was more on the affordable side and we got to see similar things that we believe we would have been able to see on a full submarine tour. The tour boat/submarine departed conveniently from the Palm Pier dock which was near the high rise hotels (walking distance) and since we were staying at the Marriott Surf Club it was just a 10min walk. The tour ran approx 2hrs and consisted of half the time on a boat ride above water and the other half on the semi-submarine ride which we got to see some of the deep water fishes, coral, and even a sunken ship! The tour guide was very friendly and funny and made the experience very entertaining for us. If you are looking for a nice leisurely water tour both above and below water this is the way to go!
It's a great way to see the underwater world up close.
This was a fun tour. The reef and sunken ship were cool. The tour now leaves from a different pier, so we walked a couple of blocks along the beach. I would definitely take this tour again.
Very Cool! My husband loves marine life, and he had a blast. Seeing the shipwreck with the sea critters was really interesting.
We were a bit skeptical after reading the comparison to the "full" submarine experience, but we can tell you without hesitation that we thoroughly enjoyed this Seaworld Explorer Semi-Submarine. The visibility could have been clearer over the coral reef, but that was due to weather conditions out of their control. Many large and beautiful fish came directly to the windows of the sub and the view of the German war ship was fantastic. This trip is worth the price -- in quality and the value you get for the price. Also great for anyone not sure if they want to be completely under water!
