The certified crew will make sure that this underwater tour into the mysterious depths of the Indian Ocean, on this German-built passenger submarine, is once in a life time experience. You will embark on the largest, deepest diving passenger submarine in the world, capable of carrying 50 passengers and 3 crew to a maximum depth of 150 meters. Choose from one of four departure times when you book.

Highlights

  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • Family friendly
  • See the underwater world without getting wet

The complimentary transfer boat will pick you from the capital city, Male’ or from the airport to take you to the submarine dive site, approximately 15 minutes away from Male’.
On reaching the submarine dive site, you will be transferred to a large floating platform where you will be served complimentary fresh towels, soft drinks, and tea/coffee before boarding. Boarding will start 15 minutes before dive time and passengers will enter the submarine via the main hatch down a staircase. Once you are seated (free seating), the submarine will leave the floating platform and cruise on the surface while crew give you a safety briefing and demonstrate the use of safety equipment’s on board the submarine.
After an announcement, the pilot will start the decent, and through large acrylic view-ports in front of each seat, you can see the depths of the ocean and a school of surgeon fish greeting the submarine. On reaching a depth of 100 feet you will see a coral reef with different types of marine life and corals. Depending on the time of the day, you may see manta rays and the reef sharks swirling around this reef. The submarine is equipped with a fish feeding system to attract these creatures closer to your view-ports.
While cruising underwater, the submarine will move slowly to avoid damaging the reef or scaring away the marine life. During the dive you maybe asked to switch seats so that both you and others can view the depths from a different view-port. Don’t forget to take your camera or phone with you so that you can take selfie with the pilot or the crew.
After a 45-minute tour the submarine will come back to the surface and you will be transferred back to a boat. The boat will then take you back to Male’ City or to the Airport.

The tour was good they mostly delivered what was promised as far as I am concerned. The whole tour took about three hours but the ride in the submarine itself is about 45 minutes longs and reasonably comfortably with seats and a window view for everyone. There was some fish to look at along the way as the operators had secured some fish heads to the submarine to attract fish. The reef is only visible from one side of the submarine and they do not move around the reef very far. For the most part the submarine descents to bottom and stays in the same spot and they get the passengers to change sides about halfway through the ride so everyone can see the reef or at least that was what happened on our ride, but the trip was worth it for us to get a ride on a submarine and to see the reef at 100 feet which we had not seen before.
I would recommend the tour for the ride in a submarine the reef and the fish were a bonus for me.

I would recommend that you visit other islands than to waste your money on this. It’s not worth it at all.

Very disappointing! After a long delay of being picked up at pier about 45 minutes, we were finally dropped off at submarine and everyone was seated in their seats, we noticed a diver which a bunch of fish that he tied to submarine before descending. This is to make sure you will see some fish as they will go for the bait. As we descended, that is about all the fish we saw. Half way through the journey, the personnel asked us to switch seats with the opposite row of people. On the other side, you were supposed to see the coral reef. There was no color in the reef. It looked grey and dying from the submarine going down continuously and scraping off some of the coral on the edges. It was so sad. What a waste of money. Only had one day in Male and wished we would have chosen to go snorkeling at one of the resorts.
