Interestingly, underwater tourism is not a new thing in Korea and our neigboring country. In fact, before being assigned to service clients in Cebu, this tourism submarine has already served around 5 years in Thailand for the same purpose. After being reconditioned in Korea, the said submarine has already received the international Korean Register of Shipping Certification last January 2013 attesting to the fitness and efficiency of the underwater transports condition.

In its introductory rate, adults can enjoy around 45-minutes of underwater fun at Php 1,200.00 and 800 pesos for kinds 5 years old to 14 years old.
