Journey by submarine through a subaquatic world populated by characters and settings from Disney•Pixar's Finding Nemo.
Climb down an open hatch inside a research submarine operated by the Nautical Exploration and Marine Observation Institute (N.E.M.O.) and take a seat in front of a crystal-clear porthole. As your friendly captain gives the order, an upward flow of bubbles suddenly fills your window view: your underwater adventure is beginning.
Forge ahead on a research study to a newly discovered volcano, sailing past divers photographing colorful sea life and age-old artifacts of an ancient civilization scattered along the seafloor. Then, hang on as your sub dives further down to avoid a coming sea storm.
Having made your way to deeper depths, a familiar sight suddenly comes into view: Nemo and his turtle pal Squirt—and as can be expected, Nemo's dad Marlin and forgetful friend Dory aren’t far behind. Thanks to special "sonar hydrophones" located inside the submarine, you can hear what everyone’s saying!
Follow Marlin and Dory on their quest to find Nemo in an exciting underwater adventure reminiscent of the hit film. Hold on tight as you ride the East Australian Current and sail through a graveyard of sunken ships. Catch up with Bruce the Shark and his gathering of fish friends and avoid a floating WWII mine. Evade the toothy bite of an anglerfish, weave your way through a school of translucent jellyfish and even find yourself inside the belly of a gigantic whale.
Maintaining the humor and heart of the original film, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage immerses you in your very own unforgettable underwater adventure with many of your favorite Finding Nemo friends.
A Unique View
You’ll see things slightly differently depending on where you sit in the submarine. Each seat provides the overall same view, but as the sub sails through the sea, you may spot Nemo at certain times when others cannot see him at all. But don’t worry: everyone will be able to see and hear Nemo (and his friends) the same total number of times throughout the journey.
For those unable to navigate the steps down into the submarine, enter the Observation Outpost at the end of the dock. Manned by a member of the N.E.M.O. Institute, this facility offers a high-definition, live-feed video version of the voyage via onboard "SubCam."
And don’t miss the familiar seagulls perched on the red buoy tethered to the seafloor as they clamor, "Mine! Mine! Mine!"
The original Submarine Voyage debuted on June 14, 1959 and was one of the first “E” Ticket attractions. The attraction was loosely inspired by the 1958 voyage to the North Pole by the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, which coincidently was named after the fictional submarine in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The attraction enjoyed a 39-year run at Disneyland Park, setting sail for the last time on September 7, 1998.
