Substation Curaçao launched CuraSub in June of 2010, the world’s most spectacular certified mini-submarine for tourists. The CuraSub descends four times a day from Bapor Kibra to unreachable depths for divers. Onboard, submarine passengers make a memorable journey to places where very few people have ever been. On the way they get to see colorful fish, corals and old shipwrecks, which are perfectly visible in the crystal clear waters that surround the island of Curaçao. From inside the CuraSub passengers have a clear view with visibility of over 60 ft (30m).
Because the CuraSub travels at greater depths than divers can reach, the submarine is also used for scientific marine research.
