Imagine yourself in a real submarine, with big view ports all around, fully submerged in the aquamarine Caribbean Sea. This is exactly what you will experience on this award winning Atlantis submarine tour which is one of the most highly recommended attractions in Barbados.
After a short transfer from the cruise ship terminal to the Atlantis office, you'll board the Ocean Quest ferry and cruise to the Atlantis dive site. Sit back and enjoy the scenic views as the professional Atlantis crew welcomes you and gives an informative safety briefing. The white sandy beaches of the Barbados coastline are always in sight as you travel out to the Atlantis dive site where you'll make the easy transfer from the Ocean Quest to the Atlantis III submarine.
Once aboard the Atlantis III, you will be treated to amazing views as curious exotic fish peek in at you and sea fans sway. This "must-do" undersea voyage takes you to a shipwreck and to depths of 150 feet, in air conditioned comfort, which in the past has been reserved only for scuba divers. A knowledgeable co-pilot narrates your forty minute underwater adventure and will help you to identify and explain the amazing sights on the other side of your window. The bottom of the ocean with its large expanses of sand becomes your playground and the professional crew ensures you will come away with some unforgettable memories as you are piloted among an array of colorful coral formations and tropical marine life.
On surfacing, you will transfer back to shore on board the Ocean Quest and then drive back to the cruise ship terminal.
