  • Done in English

The Seaworld Explorer is a semi-submersible submarine developed in Australia for use on the Great Barrier Reef. The vessel does not dive, one descends into the hull on this underwater observatory cruise to sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the water's surface, exploring amazing marine life through large glass windows.



Your journey begins when you board a transfer boat that takes you to the Seaworld Explorer, which awaits you near the renowned Arashi Reef. Your skilled captain and narrator guide knows the half-submarines in this wonderful reef filled with beautiful coral formations and hundreds of spectacular tropical fish.

Leaving Arashi Reef, the Seaworld Explorer takes you to the wreck of the Antilla, a 128-meter German freighter destroyed during World War II. The large vessel sits alongside it in 60 feet of water where it is only partially submerged, providing a resting place for the pelicans that frequent it. Measuring 423 feet in length, it is the largest wreck in the Caribbean.

A knowledgeable marine expert will provide information about the wonderful underwater world around you and will be happy to answer your questions. From the wreck you enjoy a relaxing cruise on the shore.
