Experience Curacao's tropical waters and sea life while in the hull of a semi sub, a mix between a submarine and a glass bottom boat.

We viewed a number of fish species and coral from the comfort of the semi-sub. Enjoyed this tour very much.

We had originally booked for the Trolley Train Historic Tour and Connoisseur Cooking Demonstration, but the cooking demo was cancelled prior to sailing. We then booked for the Seaworld Explorer Semi-Sub & Scenic Drive and kept the Trolley Train because the Sunset Cruise was sold out. However, due to the departure delay from Princess Cays, the shortened time in Curacao only permitted us to do the Semi-Sub. We had to cancel the Trolley Train the morning we arrived in Curacao. The tour on the way to and from the Semi-Sub was interesting and we saw a lot of the town and local highlights. The tour guide was knowledgeable and informative. The air conditioning on the bus wasn't that great, so everyone stayed hot. The stop at the distillery was a waste of time. Basically, herding cattle through the facility with a quick stop for tasting the liqueur. The Semi-Sub was a novelty, but the water was cloudy. The tour guide went overboard in scuba gear and fish food to bring the fish up to the viewing windows for photos. At that point, we had close-up views of several fish and a turtle.

This was way more fun than I thought it would be - I don't like to be contained but the ceilings were high and it was light and airy inside - it was wonderful to see the fish so close.

Nice island, very scenic. The boat moves quite a bit when stationary while the guide is feeding the fish.

It was very interesting but the water was hazy and couldn't see the fish that well.
