We saw a large sea turtle. We didn’t expect to see a turtle. We enjoyed all the exotic fish. This was an amazing experience.

I can now say I’ve been on a submarine, but that’s it

Great experience for kids, not really worth the price for adults. They cram about 40 people in and there isn’t much room to move. The ride is about 45 minutes but you only see things for about 20 because they have to keep turning around for both sides to see. Overall, cool experience to just “say you’ve done it” but wouldn’t go again, definitely not for this price

Not Worth the Price

The submarine was at max capacity. It was hard to breathe and it stunk like BO. I would never recommend this excursion to anyone. Also we saw a few small fish. Nothing amazing. I say skip this and find a better way to spend your money.

Atlantis Submarine...5 STAR EXCURSION!
Tammy_E
, Jun 2022
This was a special trip with two of our grandkids. We had never done this type of excursion before (My daughter and I get very anxious in tight spaces) but my grandson really wanted to do it so we did!!! It turned out to be one of the coolest things we have ever done before!!! We highly recommend it! Seeing the sea turtles was by far the best thing we saw. We also saw lots of fish! Only negative part was the seating...it was very tight with not much room to move around and not always easy access to see through the porthole windows. Less people would make it much more enjoyable and more cmfortable. Still was a 5 star experience and look forward to doing it again!!

The submarine tour was phenomenal. They provided a narration in English and Spanish so everyone would know what we were looking at, or doing. The shipwrecks were very cool.

The ride to and from the submarine was very enjoyable with a great guide that kept us entertained. He did everything in English and then translated to Spanish as well. Hen and the crew were helpful in getting us from the boat to the submarine - the whole thing was well orgnaized. The submarine ride was wonderful and informative. We saw so many amazing sights and actually went down to 130+ feet. I saw things I never thought I would see. Highly recommend!
