The adventure begins upon boarding the surface vessel 'Betty of the Mascareignes'. It has two ultrasound phones on-board, which provide permanent communication with the submarine.

Our pilots, trained in marine biology will guide you through the dive. Viewing the wreck of the 'Star Hope' and its numerous inhabitants, is always a magical moment ! During the descent the colours change as the infrared rays of the light are filtered out by the water. At 20m depth, red becomes brown, then violet at 30m. Yellow becomes green, then blue, after 30m. Blue is the dominant colour at the deepest part of your dive.

For your photographs, we recommend 400 - 1000 ASA film, no flash, and manual focus. On board the 'Betty', a photo souvenir service as well as video film are on sale.
