Grand Cayman Semi Submarine Tour Excursion Reviews

Home > Member Reviews > Grand Cayman Shore Excursions > Semi Submarine Tour

This unique vessel, similar to a glass bottom boat, is perfect for viewing Grand Cayman’s reef formations and unique marine life- all while in the hull of the submarine.

The submarine was nice. You don't see many fish until they feed them. There are no big fish.

Semi-submersible was part of the Land & Sea tour. Dennis the captain was awesome. Martin the narrator was more snarky than funny. Great underwater views of fish, stingrays, coral and 2 shipwrecks. Would definitely recommend.

We tendered in Grand Cayman. For ASD you need ear muffs again- the boats are loud and completely filled with people(so a lot of voices). We then took an excursion to Sea World Observatory boat booked by NCL. It was really neat and perfect for ASD- not completely enclosed and there is an upper deck if you encounter problems. The guide was nice and pointed our fish to my other two kids- they were fascinated. They do put about 40 people in a smaller enclosed space. After that we walked around and shopped. We ventured to Burger King to get nuggets for the ASD (because she had only eaten cereal and pizza in days)- it was really expensive and they did not have nuggets. Stopped at duty free to pickup Doritos (for the ASD) and tendered back to the ship. My son was impressed with the cold towels (there was no greeting in Jamaica).

The Nautilus was great. Long ride around water; about 45 minute. We saw lots of colorful fish, scuba divers, and shipwrecks!! Air conditioning felt great during the ride!!

We did the Nautilus semi-submersible with our 5 and 7 yr old. It was nothing special, but the kids loved it.

Great way to see coral, fish, ship wrecks, etc., without getting wet. Don't sit in the back where the engine noise drowns out the tour guide's narration.

If you have not gone yet - you must go. The 'wrecks' are interesting. The guide has the most amazing voice - he sounds like one of the pirates that sailed on those long lost ships! It's worth the money - AMAZING views of lots of colorful fish.

Very fun for all ages, there are two sunken shipwrecks to see, the tour afterwards is a nice way to see Grand Caymen.

the tour guide was very informative but way too loud. It hurt my ears as it felt like he was yelling

A very interesting and personable guide who kept everyone entertained while viewing the sea life and ship wrecks in the bay. The diver feeding the fish brought hordes of fish within view.

In Grand Cayman, we booked the Nautilus semi-submarine tour through the company's website. It was a good tour but I think the adults enjoyed it more than the kids. My little boy was bored with the fish well before the tour was over. It was fascinating though seeing the undersea ruins and all the tropical fish. We had a really good tour guide who made sure everyone got good pictures. We did a little souvenir shopping after the tour and went back to the ship. This was a great tour but probably best for older kids.
