Caribbean island of Curacao offers new submarine attraction

Scott Jones -

Tourists visiting the Caribbean island of Curacao will no longer have to don scuba gear and get wet to enjoy some of the island's underwater sights. A new attraction takes visitors on an underwater tour using a submarine.

Curasub, the world's most spectacular certified mini-submarine for tourists, has just been introduced on the island. Passengers make a memorable journey to places where very few people have ever been.

The colorful fish, corals and old shipwrecks are perfectly visible in the crystal clear waters that surround the island of Curaçao. From inside the Curasub, passengers have a clear view with visibility of over 60 feet!

The design of the Curasub is based on the 30-year-old Aquarius submarine, which is still operational today. All systems have been certified by Germanischer Lloyd’s, meeting and exceeding the highest safety standards.

Unlike scuba diving, submarine diving has no pressure change effects on the body. This means that people who are unfit to dive because of medical reasons are almost always allowed to dive with the submarine.
