I dove in the Curasub twice in August, and it was wonderful. All the staff treated me great; they're very accomodating of odd requests (e.g., they let me test my Niskin bottle at depth, took me over to the harbor to let me look over the R/V Chapman, etc.) Everybody is knowledgable, not just about the submersible, but also about...

The entire crew was very professional and courteous which made the substation excursion enjoyable. I would definitely take a return voyage in in the future.

Substation Curacao is a fun and unique tour. We aren't scuba divers, so we found this to be a neat alternative to see sea life. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The pre-tour video highlights safety features and can make you a bit nervous about possible scenarios, but the crew inspires confidence. The sub is small, but we didn't feel... More

A fantastic experience and relaxed way to explore the beautiful depths of the Caribbean Sea well beyond the limits of scuba diving with a very dedicated and professional organization. Thanks to the highly motivated crew for the unforgettable dive, enjoyed every minute of the trip.

We can recommend everyone when you are in the position to do this. It is not cheap but it is worth. A once in a life time experience to go deeper in the see than when you are scuba diving. It was around the 500ft deep. Beautiful fish and good explanation. Thanks again.

We signed up for the deep dive experience and dove down to an amazing depth of 1004ft. Everyone who works at substation Curacao was very nice and knowledgeable. I felt safe the entire time and the safety briefing was very through to put those afraid at ease. It might be a little expensive but it's worth every cent. To me... More

We had an amazing experience at substation curacao. Everyone was very nice and the entire experience was so much fun. We learned all about the sub and encountered more than I ever expected at 1000 feet! When we make it back we would love to try another one of the dive options!

Words really do not describe the experience of going down in the Submersible at Substation Curacao!! While at first it feels a little hot and tight in the sub - once you get down to the deeper ocean the sub cools down and you really can enjoy the ride! Closest I will get to being on another planet and I... More
