The Nautilus Semi-Submarine

Six Feet under your imagination – Join our captain and crew on an exploratory mission that is both educational and entertaining. Designed after America’s first nuclear powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, our semi-submersible vessel will take adventurers through Lover’s Cove, a State Marine Conservation Area sanctuary, where they will traverse amazing undersea gardens and ocean habitats.

Fire One! Fire Two! You’re not in enemy waters, but seafarers can launch torpedoes of fish food from their own seats, instigating feeding frenzies right outside personal port-hole windows! (*Additional charges apply).

Tours are approximately 45 minutes and leave from the green Pleasure Pier (view the map here). Seasonal evening missions may also be offered where explorers can view nocturnal sea creatures active only after dark. Contact us for more information.
