Tour Summary

The SUB may well be the most interesting underwater apparatus you will ever see. You will become part of marine life as you travel around the ocean on this underwater motor-scooter.

These flashy yellow underwater scooters look like something out of the future. In fact, these machines were actually used on the science-fiction television show seaQuest DSV. As you sit on the scooter, a self-contained two-foot dome fits over the top of your head, keeping it dry as you putter around the ocean. You can even wear your eyeglasses without a problem. The front of the scooter is outfitted with a SCUBA cylinder that keeps the oxygen flowing to the dome so you can breathe normally while you explore. The reefs and coral gardens off of the shores of the Bahamian islands are absolutely gorgeous. You will be sharing the water with playful sea turtles, sleek manta rays, beautiful mollusks, and brightly colored schools of tropical fish. Bring an underwater camera for some spectacular shots.

If you have never snorkeled or been SCUBA diving, that's okay. This tour will include all of the instruction you will need to maneuver your scooter under water. The SUBs are very user friendly. A small battery propels the engine of the SUB. After a brief lesson, you will maneuver around the ocean effortlessly. No certification is required. Safety divers control your ascent and descent into the water, but then you have control as to what direction to take from there. A line attached to a buoy will keep you and your scooter safely tethered to the world above ground. This mini sub adventure will be a safe and unique experience for everyone to enjoy.

What is a Mini Sub?
A Mini Sub is a self-contained underwater motorcycle with a large two foot clear dome keeping your head perfectly dry throughout your ride around the underwater reefs of Nassau.

Can a non-partcipant come on the Mini Sub Adventure?
Yes. While the non-particpant will not be able to participate in the Mini Sub Adventure itself they can come along as a rider and enjoy the trip with you.

Is There a restroom on the boat?
Yes. There is a restroom or "Marine Head" for use on the boat.

What about sharks and other sea creatures?
With all the media hype it's understandable why people often ask this question but the truth is that unprovoked shark attacks are very, very rare and attacks on scuba divers are even more rare. Our staff, divers and dive masters are all trained in making sure your dive is safe and enjoyable.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Mini SUB Adventure is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
