Your meeting point for our Mini Submarine Cruise Excursion in Cozumel is just a short distance from the downtown pier and a short taxi ride from the other cruise piers. So your fun day is not far away!

The Mini Submarine Scooter Shore Excursion staff will be waiting to get you checked in and the adventure started. You will have a quick orientation and then into the water. Your highly trained, English speaking guides will be with you at all times during the excursion.

The Cozumel mini-submarines are easy to maneuver underwater. The machines are also known at BOB's (breathing observation bubbles), underwater mini-subs or sea scooters. They resemble a sort of bike that you sit down on, hold on to handlebars but have your head inside a bubble. Your head will stay dry under the bubble and you can wear your glasses if you want!

The mini subs work using the Bell Principle which is simple physics - like a glass turned upside down in a bucket of water, there is an air pocket in the top of the glass. The bubble portion is where your head will be and the air is pumped into it continuously. It is the air pressure that keeps the water out! The air pocket also acts as a cork bobbing in the water - you will stay upright.

On your Mini Submarine Shore Excursion in Cozumel (also called underwater scooters), you will be "driving" only several feet under the surface. Discover the magnificent marine life of the Caribbean Sea in a unique way, as if you were a secret agent on our Mini Sub Shore Excursion in Cozumel! The personal Mini Submarine Underwater Scooter will allow you to see the underwater marvels with ease and up-close. The divers will be under with you to assist and point out some of the cool marine life living below.

You can expect to see a variety of coral formations, colorful tropical fish and other interesting marine life in the super clear, warm Caribbean water. Get a unique underwater perspective like a profession SCUBA diver gets except you do not need any prior training, certification or long classroom dive studies to see it on the Cozumel Underwater Scooter Mini Submarines!!

Your time under will be about 30-35 minutes and when your "drive" is completed, you will return to the shore to the beach area where you started. You may stay as long as you wish at the resort's beach area and use the showers, restrooms, and beach lounge chairs. There is also a restaurant you may purchase food and drinks from.

For the best value, add the Hotel Cozumel and Resort All Inclusive Day Pass now to your Mini Submarine Excursion and spend an all-inclusive day at the resort and use all the facilities (swimming pool, pool activities, poolside lounge chairs, full all you can eat buffet and all you can drink open bar!

Look No Further! This was AWESOME!
     5/5 Visited in June 2017

Oh my goodness, where do I even start!? For the quick readers, here are the high points: * Worth every penny * Friendly staff * Safe * You can hang here all day! You take a short (5 min) taxi ride from the cruise terminal for $8 (I think it was $8, we just gave him $10 and said thank you). This was the first time my husband and I had every done this underwater adventure and our instructors could not have been any better! Joaquin Pierre and Rafael were our instructors and they were very informative, made us feel comfortable, and went above and beyond! They gave us a full understanding of the process and made sure we felt comfortable before heading into the water. Getting onto the scooter and under the helmet seemed intimidating at first, but was really easy to do. The experience underwater was amazing, as Joaquin and Rafael brought a variety of sea life to our hands. After the excursion was over we were shown a lounge chair area that sat next to a lagoon. Oh my goodness. If I could go back to this place right now I would! It was BEAUTIFUL there! We were so thankful we had chosen this excursion. After hanging out ocean side, beside and in the lagoon, we went to a restaurant recommended by Rafael which was called La Choca. The food and atmosphere were awesome! It's another $8 taxi ride to get there, but SO worth it! Thank you so much to Joaquin and Rafael! We will remember this for the rest of our lives. <3

Best Excursion of the trip!

We took a short cab ride to get to this Excursion. It cost us $25 plus tip for 15 people which we thought was very reasonable. Once we arrived we were met in the lobby where were taken to the beach to be introduced to our guide. He was wonderful. He explained in detail safety measures and how the scooters worked. We were a group of 12 people so we had to go in 2 groups, which was already explained to us prior to showing up. Only 1 person had ever scuba dived before so the rest of us were pretty nervous. When we got in the water and took that first breath in the bubble we were all good!! It was an incredible experience and everyone in our group LOVED it!! The crew found various ocean wildlife and brought them to us so we can hold them. The crew took pictures and video of us that we were able to purchase the entire CD for $30. Very reasonable. Highlight of our Cruise and most talked about excursion!!

Instructions were informative and thorough. Guides watched us closely to make sure we were ok. Loved holding the sealife ( but not the seaspiders,lol). Only drawback is it went by quick and doesn't feel like you go very far at all. Still glad I did it

This is the PERFECT way to explore underwater life for those who do not wish to or can not scuba dive. The guides do a good job of scavenging the site to bring different creatures to your hand! The blow fish is a HOOT! It had a perfect smile on it's face! An unexpected find was a barracuda that swam by!!! You breath easily and comfortably within your bubble as the rest of you is emerged!. The scooters do not go fast, but that just gave me time to look about and take in the scenery. You can even bring your own underwater camera!

Great choice - wonderful experience
     5/5 Visited in March 2016

We showed up an hour early for this excursion (forgetting that ship time was an hour ahead of local time), but we were still greeted in a very friendly manner and encouraged to use the pool/beach area at the resort while we waited. Once we began the crew running the subs went over everything with us and worked hard to remove any apprehension. We were underwater for a full 30 minutes, but that time flew by. Driving the scooter underwater was really cool. Seeing and holding the variety of sea life was great! This is definitely something everyone should try once. You'll be glad you did! When we finished, we were again encouraged to hang around on the beach - nice chairs & hammocks. Great day.

Great excursion. Everybody should do this at least once. Also that let you bring your own underwater camera. They also took pictures and a video and sold them as a $30 package.

What a fun adventure this was. Well worth the money and easy way to have an underwater adventure for those who don't scuba. Instructors were fantastic and our group had a blast. Be sure to take you own underwater camera so you can grab some pics. We brought our own and purchased the picture package as well.
