It's a submarine, and there is nothing else to do in Malé
Apr 2021 • Couples
It is really the only activity to do in Malé.

Being on a submarine is something different and you do get to see different fish at the bottom of the reef.

Once we arrived at the submarine pontoon we had to wait an hour before the submarine could leave. I think this was due to weather but no information was given.
No information about the reef or the fish was given either.

Not great but if you have few hours to kill...

Different Experience!!
Jun 2019
The mid sea jetty has a toilet and you get free bottled water. The trip is expensive - about £240 for the four of us - but as someone who cannot scuba or snorkel seeing the underwater world was amazing. Probably wouldn't do again, due to the cost, but would thoroughly recommend it as a one off. The staff, as everywhere we went, were helpful and welcoming. Allow about 2 hours for the whole experience including the travelling.

The feeling of being under the sea is amazing
This is a must do if you are traveling to Maldives. This is the only passenger submarine in operation in Southern Asia and it is the largest passenger submarine of the whole world. You can witness the reef and the different types of fishes in this 45mins ride. They go for a depth of about 40m. First they pick you up from the jetty no. 2 of male and bring you to the submarine platform in middle of the ocean. Then the ride starts and after you will be dropped at the same location. Seats are at the both sides of the submarine and on one side there will be the reef and the other side is open to vast ocean. They rotate the submarine after some time so that each one gets the same experience. You can see plenty of colorful fishes. The feeling of going below the ocean is something you cannot take elsewhere. Ticket is 95USD per a person. It is in the higher side but worth the experience.

WoW!

Unique Experience and value for money. Representatives picked us at President Jetty and took us to the dive point. Excited and got into the submarine. We had a nice time in underwater with fishes swimming around and coral reefs. Crew and all the team members very well trained and speaks good English and they always follow the safety procedures. Duration of the entire trip 2 hours, submarine dive only 40 minutes.
Definitely a must-visit in Maldives trip.

If you are doing SCUBA dive in Maldives, this is not needed
Dec 2019
It does what is mentioned and you do get to see loads of fishes, Corals and Eels. However, if you are doing SCUBA dive in Maldives, this is not needed.

Wonderful and informative
Went with my 8yr old daughter.. the first appearance of fish on the submarine window is exciting.. we saw nearly 30 to 40 different types of fish. The guides were very informative.they told us the name of each and every fish.. don't miss it.. to see fish deep water in their own habitat is an out of the world experience.

Good experience but not worth the cost
May 2019 • Couples
We visited Maldives in March 2019 and did the submarine tour on very first day. We had confirmed our booking through mail prior to visiting Maldives. Payments were done on the day of tour itself at submarine.
Our hotel had arranged a drop to the Jetty 2 in Male city. We reached the submarine through their pick up service at Jetty 2. You can also carry your luggage and keep it at the reception and collect it after the submarine tour is done.
We did not expect much from tour after reading the reviews and hence were less disappointed. To start with, you only see few types of fishes. Some are really beautiful. The submarine takes you about 40-50 meters(100-150 feet) below. The Whales and sharks are not at all there. 😂 It feels as if you are in an aquarium. The marine life beneath is not so scenic and colorful. The fishes are attracted to submarine as they feed them continuously. We took the tour only to experience the submarine. Charges are 95 USD per head including pickup drop from Jetty 2.

"Whale Submarine", a chance to experience a submarine dive travel.
Mar 2019 • Solo
Boarded the ferry boat from "Jetty N0 2" and after a short ride on arrival at the "Whale Submarine" station we queued to purchase tickets with each ticket costing U.S $ 90 .The ‘Whale Submarine’ of "Tourist Submarines Maldives Pvt Ltd" owned by former Home Minister and businessman Umar Naseer takes non-divers down 132 feet(40 Meters) under water to view the ‘Tear Drop’ Mountain Reef and various fish species.50 passengers can be accommodated in this beautifully white coloured "Whale Submarine" and this would be a first submarine voyage during my lifetime of travel in various modes of transport across the Globe.Here today i would actually be travelling under the Indian Ocean in South East Asia's only "Passenger Submarine" as also having the distinction of being the largest commercial passenger submarine in operation.At 1430 hrs we boarded the White coloured submarine and were allotted our respective seats on opposite sides of the total length of the vessel. As the fish are fed from the submarine to attract them towards our viewing observation glasses that were similar to ship's portholes we could already get a view of some fish in the vicinity .Finally our descent began into the deep Indian Ocean and the most common fish species attracted towards us as we gradually made our descent towards the sea bed were the Surgeon fish species . Two staff members moved along the corridor explaining us tourists the various fish species visible to us as akin to "Bird-Watching" on land. I was ignorant of the names of some of the exotic fish species .We would descend to a maximum depth of 40 meters to the bottom of the locale in this part of the Indian Ocean.Our line of seats was facing the Coral reef shelf of the Ocean akin to the deep sea snorkeling i had done yesterday off the coast of Omadhoo island.As the fish were fed they converged in shoals towards the submarine with the Surgeon Fish being in maximum numbers. This submarine dive is basically for "Non-Divers" and "Non-Snorkelers" as also for membership to "Braggers Rights Club" of having travelled in a submarine although only for 45 minutes..Once we touched the bottom of 40 meters(132 Ft ) depth with a mountain of the Tear Coral reef looming in front of us we gradually began the ascent and changed seats with the opposite seated passenger.My seat now faced the deep open water and not the Tear Coral Mountain reef.In this way tourists on the submarine tour could get a entire view of a normal coral sea shelf as well as a deep blue sea.To me except for the once in a lifetime rarest of rare submarine ride the viewing of the fish didn't impress as i had seen much better views during solo snorkeling on Omadhoo island as well as the "Turtle Safari" off Hangnaameedho Island in the deep blue Indian Ocean.
