What you want to accomplish is AQUANAUGHTS HOLIDAY is up to you. Just don't relax so much that you drown. Underwater 3D rendered graphic simulation, variety of fish and sunken items, create and populate a reef, tranquil music and sound effects. Release Region: United StatesRelease Date: July 7, 1996

From the Manufacturer

Aquanaut's Holiday is a surprising experience of discovery. As an investigative aquanaut you launch in your vessel the HOLIDAY on an open-ended undersea journey. Study the wonders of the marine canyon and take a leisurely stroll through the mysterious harmonious submerged world as it reveals scene after scene of surreal tranquility. The calming influence of the soothing atmosphere and gently rolling currents reawakens the inner self with a sense of peace and well being.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird, Wild, and Wacky November 15, 1999
By A Customer
This game is hard to classify...actually "game" is not really correct...Basically, you just swim around a vast underwater environment...you explore and occasionally find some cool hidden areas (such as a sunken ship). You can "interact" with the sea life and fish by sending several sonic pulses using your PlayStation controller. That's pretty much the entire game. It may sound boring -- and for some it will be -- but I am strangely addicted to this odd game. It gives me the creeps to explore the underworld...but I like it. You never know what you stumble on next...

5.0 out of 5 stars Originality at it's best. April 17, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There's nothing quite like this game. It's a relaxing and often creepy experience. You just swim around, explore, discover and build coral reefs. That's it. Yet it is so well done that you immediately get immersed in this vast underwater exploration. This, however, is not for everyone. As a matter of fact, most people will probably hate this game because of the nature of it; it's not much of a "game". No enemies, no objectives, no killing, no missions... just explore.

I really wish there were more games like this. Imagine if they did something like this in a jungle setting. I... that.... *manly tears*... would be beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Old Game Which Should Be A Classic January 28, 2015
Verified Purchase
I thought I reviewed this game once before but I guess not. Suffice it to say that this game is awesome - if you like this sort of thing. This was the very first diving game ever produced and as such it goes back to a time when graphics were still a bit angular. But that hardly takes away from the game in my opinion. there are literally hundreds of different species of marine life to find, observe and, yes, even talk to (sort of). And the species are not limited to fish. There are seaweeds, mollusks and echinoderms (starfish and sea urchins) on the list. Because each dive is slightly different (the fish move from place to place somewhat) it can be fun to keep a life-list recording what you find on each dive.
This game also has hidden treasures to discover. They come in the form of old ruins, sunken ships and a few very wierd surprises. And once you finish exploring the ocean, you can reset it to a completely different configuration.
Someone mentioned something about needing to understand Japanese to play the game. I'm not sure why you would because all the controls use universal symbols and there is no human speech in the game at all.
The game runs only on PS1 and PS2 as far as I know. I once heard that early PS3s ran PS1 and 2 games, but they stopped that for some reason. I own a PS3 but am very unhappy with it for many reasons (not important here).
