Grand Cayman (Georgetown) Semi Submarine Tour Excursion Reviews

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.

Semi- sub was fine (a bit warm and stuffy, but not unbearable) with a good guide (can't recall her name) with some corny jokes. Views were good and the fish feeding, while staged, was fun.

Tour was good, although the boat needs work. Some of the windows had been replaced with steel panels which made seeing difficult. The inside of the boat was not clean and it was hard to hear the guide.

The semi-sub tour was good, not like snorkling but we did see quite a lot of coral and many fish. The narrator was very good. The trip also included the sea turtle breeding facility which was quite interesting. It would have been preferable to skip the stops at "Hell" and a rum cake place but they did not take long.

While we enjoyed the actual excursion we felt that the price was not reflective of what we received. We boarded a bus for a two block ride to the submarine. Opted to walk back to the ship as it was so close. One of our party overheard a couple requesting the price of the tour that we had just returned from and it was less than half of what we paid. I do not believe that a two block ride should have cost over $30 US per person. Read Less
