My Former T/A took this and raved about it. I have no idea about accessability.

MY sisters and a nephew, who cruised with me this past February, took both the semi submersible and the 100 foot deep sub rides at Cozumel.

From the video, the semisub looks a lot like the Capt Nemo ride at Disney World. A somewhat elongated, steep stairway to get below the waterline. I have seen similar stairways on preserved WWII era submarines. Some folks might have a problem with that. However, there might be some provisions--perhaps disabled board first.

You might try to find the website for the operators of the subs and ask those questions directly. Or you might want to consider a glass-bottom boat as an alternative. The water is almost crystal clear, so the view would still be good. You just wouldn't have the bragging rights you would after a sub ride.

We took this in Cozumel...There is a great reef there & it was truly awesome. The guide was very knowledgeable & entertaining. Sorry but I do not see how it could be accessible from what I saw. You climb down steep, narrow stairs & sit on bench type seats (carpeted) to look out the windows. Did not see any lift or elevator.
