About Saipan Submarine
Saipan Submarine offers a chance to explore the underwater world of the Tanapag Lagoon. There you will have the opportunity to view and photograph dozens of species of tropical fish and a wide variety of corals. Our Coast Guard certified submarine "Deepstar" takes you through towering "coral gardens" and across open sandy areas where sea turtles, stingrays, and sharks often swim alongside. Each seat is situated comfortably in front of extra-large viewports ideal for photographing the WWII shipwreck and plane wreck we explore as part of the 40-minute tour. An on-board narration in multiple languages helps to explain each feature we see. From our dock, spacious transfer vessels carry you to and from the submarine, waiting just a few minutes from the Saipan Submarine home base. Our helpful crew will assist you at every step, insuring a safe and enjoyable family friendly experience.

For somebody who does not know how to swim, this is especially nice because you get to see marine life right in front of you, in their natural habitat. I highly recommend this for all tourists. Just make sure you don't have motion sickness.
