Atlantis Submarine: Experience the award winning Atlantis submarine tour which is one of the most highly recommended attractions in Barbados for adults and children (Min height 3 feet. ). On the hour we invite you to board our transfer vessel the Ocean Quest, which will take you to the submarine.
Sit back and enjoy the brief boat ride to the Atlantis dive site along the scenic coastline, as the professional crew welcomes you and gives a safety briefing. The vessels tie up alongside each other and you make the easy transfer from the Ocean Quest to the Atlantis Submarine. After securing the hatches and being seated in the air-conditioned comfort of a real submarine, the call is made to: “Dive! Dive! Dive!” You are now fully submerged in the aquamarine Caribbean Sea with large viewports all around, as curious exotic fish peek in at you and sea fans sway.
This unique “must-do” undersea voyage, can take you to a shipwreck and to depths of 150 feet, which in the past has been reserved only for scuba divers. A knowledgeable co-pilot narrates the 40 minute underwater adventure and will help you to identify the amazing sights on the other side of your window. Before returning to the surface, you explore the large expanses of sea floor as if it is your playground.
Create amazing unforgettable memories as you are piloted among an array of colorful coral formations, and tropical marine life. On surfacing, you are transferred back onboard the Ocean Quest for the return to Shallow Draught. A beverage is provided on the return journey.
Atlantis Submarines Night Dive Description
Are you looking for something unique to do after sunset? Experience another side of Barbados’ night life in a very different manner. There is only one other place in the world that Atlantis Submarine Night Tours can be experienced, making it truly unique. After a 15 boat ride out to the dive site and a brief transfer to the submarine, the hatched are secured and the dive begins. Only natural daylight is initially used but as it gets dark during the dive, the lights are switched on, revealing a very different perspective of the coral reef. This allows you to experience the best of both worlds - day and night. Predators and reef fish are a bit fewer in number than during the day but this is a more romantic and awe-inspiring experience than the day tour. The night dive is concluded by a brief cocktail reception where there is an opportunity to meet the submarine crew.
Duration: 1.5 hours.
Start/opening time: The boat leaves every hour from 9am to 2pm (morning tour) and from 5pm to 6:30pm (night tour).
Others: Wheelchair guests may participate if they are able to safely navigate an 11 step ladder into and out of the submarine. Participants must be at least 3 feet tall.
