Submarine trip in Lanzarote
Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime underwater adventure with the Yellow Submarine in Lanzarote. This 1-hour sea journey will take you to the depths of the ocean, where you can experience the stillness of the underwater world and witness the breathtaking beauty of marine life.
The submarine is designed with comfort and safety in mind. It is 18.5 meters long, 4 meters wide, and 6.5 meters high, and has a capacity of 48 passengers plus crew members. The submarine is powered by environmentally-friendly electric motors and equipped with redundant safety systems and a surface control boat for added security.
As you dive to depths of 25-30 meters, you will have the opportunity to admire the diverse marine life of the region, including schools of sea breams, atlantic damselfishes, bogues, zebras, striped ,saddled seabreams, parrotfishes, rainbowfishes, sole fishes, garden eels, red mullets, grey mullets or groupers.
With large portholes and TV monitors connected to video cameras outside the submarine, you can observe the underwater world in detail.
Discover an authentic wreck, the Tenderete, an original tuna boat sunken 30 metres deep. This 30-metre-long fishing boat with a steel hull serves as a reminder of the island’s fishing activity.
At the end of your submarine trip, you’ll get a certificate signed by the captain, as a souvenir of your submarine tour.
We hope that this certificate adds the final touch to a great submarine adventure in Lanzarote, an experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
