Our submarine trip was so awesome; the crew was knowledgeable, fun, and just great overall. We saw so many beautiful fish, and even two reef sharks (which we were told are a rare occurrence). Kids would ask the crew to identify a fish with random or very little description, and they were able to do it and even tell fun facts about them. Fantastic trip, great value!

It was a really cool experience! We saw lots of fish. We even got to see a few sharks (the crew states that this was a rare occurrence). The tour guide was funny and did a good job explaining what was going on and what will be going on.
