Ever been under the surface of the sea? NO?
Here you have an opportunity of a lifetime!
The Yellow Submarine pictured above takes you out from Puerto Calero
every day, for an hour underwater adventure - and that is exactly
what it is!
The clarity of the waters and marine life around
the island of Lanzarote makes
a dive with the Yellow Submarine a truly once in a life time experience.

of the harbour,
and shows you what the sea life is like close to the 30 meter high

The price? As per November 2000, the cost is 6.900 Ptas each,
half price for children. (About 26 Pounds in UK, or US $ 37,-).
But you sit well, and you have a wonderful view of what's going
on outside, and
yes, it is true that the waters here are clear, and that there is
fish in the sea....
