Are you looking for a Barbados tour that your family can have fun and still learn loads about the marine environment? Experience the award winning Atlantis submarine tour which is one of the most highly recommended attractions and tours 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. Many persons wonder how we are able to dive every hour on the hour but only have one submarine in operation. The Ocean Quest is a powered catamaran which acts as a ferry to and from the dive site where the submarine is taken first thing in the morning. The vessel has a crew of three, a boat captain on the upper deck, and two copilots or deckhands as they are called on the boat, who give you a safety briefing and an outline of what you are seeing along the shoreline. The ride takes you along the west coast of the island and you can see a beautiful stretch of white sandy beaches before you start to sot the submarine dive site in the distance. After a short and breezy ten minute ride the Ocean Quest comes alongside the submarine and a ramp between the two makes the transfer over easy. Once you board the submarine, the copilot, will batten down the hatches so you can start your journey underwater. You will enjoy the fact that you are sitting in air-conditioned comfort, looking out a viewport in front of you as you wait for the signal is sounded 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. 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. Take a picture of what you are seeing or take a “selfie “of yourself experiencing it to share with all your friends. The coral and fish naturally coexisting is a great story to tell once you have seen it. The submarine returns to the surface as effortlessly as it has descended and the Ocean Quest is waiting for you with another group of eager guests ready to exchange places with you. Your journey ends at the Shallow Draught Reservations lounge where Atlantis specialty souvenirs and good quality 100% Barbados mementos can be purchased.
If you are staying at a hotel we pick you up and return you to your accommodation for a very cost effective fee especially if you are a family of large group. You can make your own way or ask the resident taxis to bring you to our location in Bridgetown. If you are a cruise ship guest, you will notice that Atlantis is usually listed as one of the most highly recommended out of the list of Barbados excursions tours. We also offer two island tour options and he details are listed under “Atlantis Sub and Sea” and the “Natural Wonders tour. Both of these Barbados tours are offered only board with pick up and return from the Bridgetown Cruise terminal so it is easy and safe.
Are you looking for something unique to do after sunset? A submarine night dive is an opportunity to see another aspect of Barbadian night life. Can you think of anything in the world that you can only experience it two places? The Atlantis Submarine Night dive is an example of such. After a 15 minute 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 and refresh your palate with local delicacies.
Are you celebrating a special occasion? A wedding, honeymoon, birthday or do you simply want to treat yourself? Why do you not consider an adventure on board Atlantis Submarine as none other than a VIP Guest! You can enhance your experience with a tour upgrade to VIP. Atlantis Submarines will accommodate a minimum of two VIP Guests on each tour or a maximum of eight VIP guests in a group, so that the individual attention is guaranteed. This option provides an upgrade on either a day or night tours and is not an exclusive tour. Your adventure begins with a warm welcome from your assigned Atlantis Submarines host as you are pre-boarded onto our transfer vessel, the Ocean Quest, before the official boarding procedures start. Our VIP guests will be hosted on the upper deck of the transfer vessel, where you will have your own tour guide for the duration of the trip out to the submarine. VIP guests will be pre boarded from the ferry on to the submarine and will get to sit in the coveted position up front with the pilot, next to the very large front viewport. Direct interaction with the pilot is encouraged as you journey beneath the sea in air conditioned comfort, watching sea fans sway and sea life peak in. At the end of the submarine exploration you will disembark first onto the transfer vessel and will be served wine and hors d’oeuvres during the return trip. We thank you for creating unforgettable memories with us and you will receive a dive certificate and a souvenir.
