Gran Canaria Submarine Adventure – Description

The journey takes you to an area where you will see two authentic sunken ships and the new artificial reef,  which now has become a natural habitat for many new species in the area. The Gran Canaria Submarine Adventure takes about 40 minutes.

Large portholes and monitors provide for a quite interesting trip. Recordings in English, German and Spanish explain everything what can be seen on the seabed and how the submarine functions.

The Artificial Reef

The reef has been in the planning for decades, but finally in 2015 Atlántida SL constructed and fitted the first massive object on the seabed, continuing with their project until its finalisation in June 2018.

The artificial reef has been built for two reasons: First to attract new sea-life off the coast of Mogán and with it create an marine investigation zone. And second, the intention to make the area more interesting for submarine explorers, snorkelers, divers and dive-schools. The idea is to make people more conscientious about the urgent need to protect the marine habitat.

Gran Canaria Submarine – Puerto de Mogán

The yellow submarine Golden Shark, is located in the harbor of Puerto de Mogán, the south-west coast of Gran Canaria. It is docked exactly opposite the harbor master’s office, at the very end of the pier,  almost next to the small lighthouse. In the winter time you can even drive all the way onto the pier, and enter the paid parking area.

Who is Allowed on the Yellow Submarine?

Anyone who can climb up and down the narrow ladder of the yellow submarine is allowed on. The safe ride with Submarine Adventure takes its guests to a depth of 25 meters.Be aware, there is no bathroom on the submarine, so make sure to visit the toilet before the trip.

The atmospheric conditions on board are completely regulated, there is no pressure change. This makes this excursion so ideal for children who are usually not yet able to make a pressure balance and for people who are not able to dive and snorkel because of ear problems.

Also pregnant, non-swimmers, people with hearing problems or heart problems are allowed to take part. Enjoy the ride!

Original attraction, however you do not see many fishes in 40 minutes. According to the price 31,50 € per person (we... were 4), that's expensive. The most important is the sensation, and take the photo at the end (for 5 euros) as a more

This place is certainly worth to visit especially during holidays in the area and if you never been on a submarine tour... of the sea bed before ,this will be a great experience. Free shuttle bus to and from the excursion.Very professional and friendly staff . You will be equipped with headphones which enable you to listen to audio description of what you are seeing and some history which is very interesting and informative. Everybody has small screen to watch submersion which is cool. Fish will follow you continually and you will be able to see two wrecks now forming artificial reefs which support plenty of fish life. If you lucky you can see divers on the wreck as well. It will definitely be an unforgettable experience for more

Fantastic experience. 10 stars!! Real submarine diving to 25 meters. Divers and food release attract myriad of fish.... Could have hoped for greater diversity of fish or a coral reef. But still the #1 experience on our holiday!read more

Disappointed with the overall experience with the submarine trip. Was promised 40-45 minutes on board the vessel but... this turned out to be about 20-25 underwater and the rest travelling to and from the protected area and getting on and off.They are very friendly people and do ask for Kids names when they book in so they can produce them a little certificate to say they have been on the adventure which I find to be a lovely touch.They have 3 languages of audio descriptions available on board (Spanish, English and German) and they provide you with a free pair of earphones to keep to allow you to listen so they cater for a lot of people.When underwater we found that you really couldn’t see further than about 4 feet outside the window of the submarine. This meant that when the audio description was providing information about what you should be seeing there was nothing to be seen at all. The audio description was a whole other story, they provided very little detail on the sea life itself and spent more time banging on about how they built the protected area from scratch. They also added some awful background music and odd whale noises which were definitely not desired.They take a picture as you board the submarine of your group/party and have it produced and printed while you are on board. This is a nice touch and they on charge €5 for 2 pictures at the end which I’ve found compared to others this is good value.I would recommend this trip for families with younger children as I’m sure they’d love this. But for me this isn’t great value for anyone over the age of about 12read more

A pleasant trip overall. Went on with my partner. Some of the music and 'sound effects' on board to make the experience... more realistic seem a little much if I'm honest. It's clear they aren't real and are just put on for guests benefit. Kids would likely really love this though, as adults we saw through it unfortunately.All automated 'guide' descriptions are provided in Spanish, English and German which was fine.Overall a nice trip to say you've been on a submarine, and views of fish were nice, is it worth it for 60 euros per couple... I'm not sure. But we don't regret giving it a go. If you have kids though, they would likely love this (and it's cheaper for their tickets!) We noticed they ask for children's names before the trip, and on return, provide free certificates for children to say they've been on board which is a nice touch. They also take a photo of your couple/group as you're getting on board then offer it you for a small charge (5 euros I think) on return. We didn't partake in that as we took our own.So overall a nice experience but more geared towards kids than adults in my view. Thanks to Submarine Adventure for the experience more
