Curacao Semi-Sub Excursion Reviews

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.
It was a pleasant 15 minute ride out to the sub.
It was a pleasant 15 minute ride out to the sub. We were lucky that the visibility was good. We saw lots of fish and enjoyed the many views of the wreck and the coral growing on it. A worthwhile excursion.

This was a surprisingly good excursion. The crew provided all safety information and ensured that we saw fish as one crew person put on scuba gear and feed the fish so the fish are around the vessel. I would recommend this excursion for people that don't enjoy snorkeling or scuba but still want to experience some underwater adventure and see some fish. Read Less

I wasn't quite sure what to expect, and it was quite scary and claustrophobic down in the bottom of the semi-sub. But once we got going, it was fantastic - so may fish the time just flew by. Back on shore there was a long delay waiting for our bus to arrive. Off to the Curacao factory - interesting. Willemstad is so pretty - well worth wandering around to see the market and bridges.

Amazing. Boat that you walk down 9 steps and has benches with glass. Air conditioned with calming music. Tour guide got out and dove and fed fish and we had fish swarming the windows - tons of pictures. Awesome way to go snorkeling without getting wet. The music and air-conditioning helpful so that we didn't feel Closterphobic It was an hour and a half, so lots of time for shopping, which we did and enjoyed. Read Less

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. Read Less

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.
