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.
This tour is so cool.
This tour is so cool. If you want to see the reefs and sea life, but don't snorkel, scuba or are too claustrophobic for the real submarine tour, than this is the one for you ! LOL The guide was super informative and entertaining!

We started our day at the port in Georgetown and headed out to the turtle farm where we got to see the giant turtles as well as hold turtles. Next we headed our bus out to Hell where we were able to send a post card home with the special Hell postage stamp. We also got our passports stamped indicating we went to Hell. All during our bus ride our driver Teddy Bear told us about the area and the island. Our third stop on the tour was a ride in a semi sub. During our ride we were able to see ship wrecks, many different fish, turtles and sharks. The tour guides on the sub were very knowledgeable and ensured that everyone got to see everything the seafloor had to offer. Read Less

I would not recommend this to anybody. The class where we sat was all scratched couldn't take pictures. The fish were all on one side of the boat that the lien over people if you wanted to see. They did have a scuba diver in the water came along with the fish not worth the price. And the place where we ate the food came to $40 and the Cayman dollar apparently was 25% more +15% gratuity that was that it without our consent and tax were charged over $90. Just don't eat there in the Cayman Islands. Read Less

We took Capt. Nemo's semi sub. It was a lot of fun. Snorkeling option for those who chose to do that. Others could remain onboard and watch thru the big windows on the lower level.

Grand Cayman was very nice after our negative experience in Ochos Rios. I actually studied German on the way to Grand Cayman in case the vendors were as aggressive and I wanted to pretend I didn't speak English. Thankfully I didn't have to resort to that. The people in Grand Cayman were a bit reserved, yet friendly and polite. This was my wife's favorite stop. For me it almost seemed a bit too much like North America, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. There are lots of high end shops around if you're into that sort of thing. The Atlantis semi-submarine tour was about a ten minute walk from the cruise docks. I knew that beforehand and booked it independently. The operator seemed like a very professional and reputable company The underwater reefs and shipwrecks we saw were incredible. The company has a scuba diver that feeds the fish to lure them close to the windows so people can see them up close. We liked Grand Cayman a lot and stayed ashore until about an hour before the ship was scheduled to leave. Read Less

The Amphibious land/boat tour was awesome.
The Amphibious land/boat tour was awesome. A must do. It was just the right amount of time where you could tour some of the island, go in the water on the same bus, stopped at the 7 mile beach to eat and chill. Great value for the price.

We booked right at the port at the Discount Excursions kiasok.The next available mini-sub was not for a couple hours. We walked around and went to the Hard Rock Cafe for a couple drinks to kill time. It was right across the street from where we boarded the sub. There were only 6 of us on the sub which was great! We could move all about and had great views. The captain scuba dived into the water to feed the fish which came right up to the windows. We saw sting rays and many other fish and sunked vessels. Our narrator was excellent! He was very informative and answered all questions. Read Less

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). Read Less
