Tour Summary

It is almost like driving your own underwater motor scooter from the future. With our Mini SUB Adventure you will be able to cruise underneath the surface of the ocean aboard your very own personal SUB vessel. While they may look like something straight out of some science fiction movie, these SUB vessels are actual working underwater transportation devices.

These personal SUBs are self-contained diving devices that are equipped with two-foot long transparent domes in order to keep your head perfectly dry throughout your exploration of the extensive coral reef system of the Bahamas. These devices are relatively new, having been invited in the 1990’s by Bell Aqua, a company based out of Florida. They were made to provide a safe and convenient way of exploring the underwater environments such as the vibrant coral reef gardens.

The coral reef system off the coast of the Bahamas is one of the most diverse and populated in the world. It is teeming with all sorts of tropical fish species, sea turtles, manta rays, mollusks, and much more. The SUB adventure lets you get down in the water even if you have never had any scuba diving or snorkeling experience. Many say it is the ultimate way to experience the fascinating underwater vistas of the Caribbean Sea.

Our friendly and knowledgeable instructors will be on hand to teach you all you need to know about these devices. They are easy to use and will allow you plenty of time to explore the underwater world of the coral reef gardens. You are able to breathe as you would normally without having to use any sort of mask or tube. Furthermore, full precautions are taken by the staff and our expert divers to make sure you have a completely safe and enjoyable experience.

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-participant 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 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!
