I had a wonderful day in whale submarine.

For the first time in my life, I saw the beauty of underwater life. I cannot belive by eye after seeing the beauty of the corals.

It costed me around USD 35/- as I am on holding Work permit.

Did the Whale Submarine trip in November 2008 on a Saturday.
(The Maldives is a Moslem state with the weekend on Friday and Saturday)
Phoned to book that morning and they managed to mangle my name on the check-in form beyond belief but got on OK
The meeting place is Jetty 1but the person meeting you has no identifying badge, sign or anything else - just a sort of twee sailor suit.
20 minutes after the advertised time, we all got onto a ferry at Jetty 2 (!) and took the 10 minute trip to the fixed sub site between Male and Vilingili (another neary island).
When we had all paid our $75 (slowly) we all waited around for a while (compulsory on Male) and slowly got on board.
The sub seats around 50 people.
The real trip is good, there are big portholes all along both sides of the sub and the seats all face these.
The sub doesn't go far horizontally - a hew hundred metres at most but goes down just over 100 feet (30 metres). No sense of motion. There is a depth display at both ends of the sub (in feet but it doesn't tell you that - I asked)
Sit on the left (viewed looking toward the front) as that side gets an overall better view for longer. The sub does turn round so the right side gets a view but it's not the same. The views near the beginning from the left side are best. I even saw a conger eel.
You are down a good half hour to 40 minutes.
Remember there is no toilet on the sub - go on the sub dock after the boat takes you out.
Yes, now I have ticked off another "Thing to do before I die" - travel in a submarine

I rate it average plus
