What to Expect
Begin your adventure in downtown Oranjestad, where you’ll get a safety briefing and orientation at the tour center. Then step aboard the tour’s surface vessel for transfer to the submarine. This technologically advanced passenger submarine, certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, makes it possible for even nonswimmers and small children to dive deep below the surface of Aruba’s waters. Grab a window seat in the submarine and prepare for the dive. Get views of marine life on the Barcadera Reef and see two local shipwrecks. Learn about the marine life you see, the reef ecosystem, and the history of the crashed ships through your crew’s informative commentary. After you surface and head back to land, you’ll receive an official dive certificate to take home.

We booked this excursion through Carnival Cruise Lines and couldn't wait. I'll start by saying, it DID NOT disappoint. I'd also like to address the last review, by user Deb S, who said there are hardly any fish at this location. She couldn't be more wrong, and I have plenty of

We booked this tour through Royal Caribbean on an ABC island cruise. Perhaps it's better to book it through another agency or just walk in to the tour company on Aruba. That might have mitigated some of the problems we encountered. 48 people were booked for the sub that
