“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

A truly superb way to view the marine life of a coral reef. Betty and Alastair provide a welcoming, informative and entertaining trip that is a definitely worth experiencing on a visit to Providenciales. Whilst it is an ideal underwater viewing opportunity for those who don't wish to get their feet wet it is equally as interesting for those familiar with snorkeling or diving. Highlights of our trip today were no less than 15 green turtles, a barracuda and a stingray. Fantastic!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Where else can you get under water without getting wet? Betty (a kiwi) and Alistair (a kenyan) have been maintaining this amazing semi submarine machine for 7-8 years now. The trip is roughly around 45-50 minutes. There is room for 8 people within the sub. Try sitting just before Betty. She comments and you get to see fishes (star fish and so many other varieties), a lot of coral reefs, a sting ray, lemon sharks (if you are lucky), turtles, turtle grass.
Betty gets more chatty and provides more information if one shows interest and has some understanding of sea life.
The trip costs $60/person (includes drop off from the hotel and back).
The starting trip at 9 AM is least busy.
A very enjoyable trip indeed and a must see on your calendar.

“Unexpectedly Wonderful!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Excellent sea life viewing in comfort. My husband and I have been snorkeling for many years and I didn't think I would enjoy a submarine so much. We decided to take this excursion because our youngest child does not enjoy snorkeling very much. It is too uncomfortable for her. I enjoyed watching the expressions on my children's faces and listening to their animated comments about what they were seeing just as much as watching the sea life myself. The "crew", a husband and wife team, were very pleasant and gave a good narrative during the journey. The only thing we would improve would be to lengthen the tour. We could watch the sea life for hours!

“Fantastic view of coral reef”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Wonderful trip to the TCI Coral Reef with the Undersea Explorer. It was nice to have such a scenic trip to the reef and stay dry. Our hosts were great, and kept us entertained. We really enjoyed it.
