Submarine Tour in Honduras
Submarine Idabel is another exclusive company that offers underwater exploration in their submarine but it is only for two people (not necessarily a couple in the real sense). The submarine plunges to unbelievable depths in the Caribbean Sea, up to 3000 feet! I don’t think the surface light will penetrate to such depth. You remain underwater for about three and a half hours!

Lovers Deep is another submarine company that operates submarine tours in a few locations in the Caribbean Islands.
In the Caribbean Sea waters, the Lovers Deep’s submarines take the passengers to really deep (up to 650 feet down).
This is more of a submarine cruise trip offered to couples and honeymooners. They even offered a bedroom! Do you know what the romantic couples provided in their all-inclusive submarine cruise package? An aphrodisiac meal!
Submarine Tours to be started in Cochin
Cochin in India is a major tourist hub with beaches, islands, and cruises. The Government of Kerala is ready to launch a submarine off the Arabian coast. The ambitious tourism project is awaiting clearance from the shipping department.
