The tour operators/ captain and crewmen were hilarious. Throughout the ride, they told jokes which made the trip all the more enjoyable. Not corny jokes where you’d want them to shut up. Anyone with a great sense of humor and fluent in sarcasm will appreciate these guys. The ride itself was amazing. A lot of great pictures of videos.

The submarine ride was great, even though we had rain the night before so it wasn’t as clear as some days. It was still very cool and our guide was both knowledgeable and very funny and friendly.

My son and I loved the experience. They did a great job mixing teaching passengers about the ocean, fish& ship wrecks. If I could change anything it would be the seating. I'm 6'2 leg room on the sub was cramped.

Seeing the shipwrecks come up out of the slightly murky water was really awesome. I was sad that the sea turtles & bigger fish chose not to show themselves, but otherwise, it was well worth it!

Truly a once in a lifetime experience to be inside a submarine going 135 ft deep. The visibility underwater is great seeing tons of angelfish, butterflyfish, coral reefs and ship wrecks. Highly recommended excursion while in Aruba. I would give it a 5 star but the narrator is hard to understand with his strong accent.

Our narrator. He was amazing! The was educational with a mix of humor. The idea that we received a nice boat ride to get to the submarine was another added bonus. Gave us the opportunity to see more of the island.
