Recently my husband and I went on a trip to Cancun, Mexico. While we were there, Aquaworld was one of the place we made sure to visit. This facility has a lot of things to do, but we chose the Paradise Sub See Explorer. It takes you out into the ocean for a unique view of the fish and more without having to actually go scuba diving or snorkeling. This is a great way to let the kids experience the ocean.
When we arrived at the facility, they were really nice but we had a small confusion. During some months, they only have a boat go out every two hours instead of every hour. It worked out okay though because were able to walk around the area and look around and then return.
Your excursion starts with getting on a boat and being taken out to the Sub See Explorer. Your trip on this boat is really nice. They offer you drinks which include water, beer, and soda. This is a great option, but remember that you will not have anywhere to use the restroom if you drink very much. You can also climb up on top of the boat for a great view. This trip takes about 15-20 minutes.
Once you arrive at the Sub See Surfer, you will be out in the middle of the ocean. You will walk one from one boat to the other. You go down below where you can see the ocean. You will walk in two at a time, pull down your seat, and then the next two people do the same thing. The boat itself doesn't actually go under water but the part you are in is already under the water and stays there. You will have a person down there with you that explains to you what you are seeing. You get the chance to see fish, stingrays, turtles, and even part of the Underwater Museum.
This is a very unique view of the ocean. You will never get to see it like this unless you are certified to go down as a scuba diver. You are under the water for about 10 minutes. This excursion was really neat, but if you have problems with nausea be prepared that the boat does rock back and forth a lot. This is about the only way children could ever see the ocean underneath so it is the perfect excursion to take them along.
After you are done, you will return to your original boat and go back to the Aquaworld facility. They offer you drinks on the way back as well and also go around with something to smell if you had some nausea on the Sub See Explorer. Over all it was a great experience and well worth the money if you are looking for something to do in Cancun. If you are interested in this excursion, check it out on their website.
