Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Disembark your cruise ship and greet your guide at the shore of Cozumel’s shimmering Caribbean Sea. After an informative safety explanation, fit your mini-SUB gear and plunge into the iridescent waters of the ocean. A mini-SUB is a high-tech device that allows you to breathe normally underwater without the use of a mask or tube.

Follow your guide by driving your underwater scooter through the water, directing your gaze to magnificent marine life; observe parrotfish, manta rays, garden eels, and colorful corals as you glide through the sea. Marvel at the tropical tableau of fish before returning to the sandy shores to relax upon the blissful beach. 

Conclude your submerged shore excursion with a refreshing juice or classic cocktail from a nearby restaurant (own expense) before making your own way back to your cruise ship port.

Don't waste your money and/or time!

Yuck, this was the worst thing we did while on Cozumel for 5 days! The "Subs" were a joke, the little 50 foot circle over a sandy bottom with no visible aquatic life in site took about 10 minutes because the subs have no propulsion whatsoever. The guides had to push us through 1/2 of it just to get ours to move. The fish that you do see is only once your slow boring circle it done and the escorts tethered the 4 subs together and pulled a bottle of bread out to attract a handful. The poor little puffer fish they have you hold is kept in captivity, only taken out long enough for the guides to place in your hand long enough to snap a pic. Save your money if you've snorkeled or scuba, go ahead and spend it if you've never been in the water before and have low or no expectations.

UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

WE enjoyed our sub adventure tremendously. We knew going into it that it would be about 15 minutes of actual time under the water. Still,dispite the cost and time we felt it was worth it. SO COOL! Instructors were awesome { Joaquin and Julio}. they were patient, thorough, and kind. They brought things like pufferfish right up to us to touch!

As certified divers, we thought this would be a little bit of a different way to explore under water. The mini-subs are very easy to ride and out team did a thorough briefing before we got in the water. It was a fun time for the family and would recommend it for kids that are not old enough to dive or don't like to breath through a snorkel.

We were a little concerned with the safety and nervous about the underwater environment . Our guides Alonso and Joachim took a great care to make sure we are comfortable with the equipment and the water. The experience was fantastic , we were able to see the marine life in their natural form. They also took our pictures underwater. Joachim and Alonso brought the sea creatures near us and we held a sting ray , puffer fish and some of the other fishes.I wish the duration was a little longer but it was a great experience for us. Once we were done, they also arranged the para sailing experience from right there.

Best excursion I've ever done. If you want to experience what scuba diving is like without having to scuba dive and instead ride seated on a little under water submarine where you can breath normally under water, this is great. The only part I didn't like is we were tied to a rope for what felt like 2/3 of the time don't know for sure and rode around only a little while. But the tour guide divers brought us all sorts of sea life we could hold and they took amazing photos of us and a video under water for just 30

Mini-Subs gave us a new way to go under water. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Staff was able to show you a lot of fish attracted by the food they carried as well as a star fish and a porcupine puffer fish. Pretty neat overall.
