Our submarine tours offer you a one of a kind opportunity to discover the underwater beauty of the Sunshine Coast through Australia’s first tourist submarine, SUBCAT.
Being in a submarine and descending to 30 meters underwater is an adventure in itself. You will get to see real marine life up close in its natural habitat. It is an eye-opening experience that takes you beyond the classroom as you learn about coral, reef life and submersibles while visiting our sunken shipwrecks and reefs.
After picking you up from your location, our professional team will give you information about the dive and submarine in our Mooloolaba office. Following boarding the submarine, passengers will remain sited outside the cabin on the rear deck of the submarine until arriving at a dive site. After progressing inside the cabin before a dive, you will be allocated a place in front of a viewport, normally shared by 2 people. The duration of stay under water is about 35 – 40 minutes.
During the dive, our assistant captain will inform you about the submarine and underwater features in a pleasant environment while the divers around the submarine will entertain you and your kids.
The tours are open to people of all ages and physical conditions not including children aged under 2 years. Our submarine is equipped with cabin air conditioning and the atmospheric air pressure life support for customers comfort.
We offer 5 dives per day, 6 days a week departing from the Mooloolaba Wharf or from a commercial pontoon located at the Spit.
