Atlantis Submarine Expedition - Grand Cayman

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to the the Atlantis Adventure Center on the George Town waterfront, then start your 90-minute Grand Cayman experience with a safety briefing followed by a 5-minute boat transfer to the Atlantis XI submarine.

    On arrival, walk across the ramp and step aboard the deck of the submarine. Once you enter the air-conditioned and pressurized cabin through a large hatch, your captain will complete pre-dive checks of the vessel and begin your descent. During the 45-minute ride, you’ll reach depths of 100 feet (30 meters) while exploring the underwater world of Cayman's National Marine Park. 

    Enjoy a smooth ride and find out what lies beneath the water’s surface as you peer through your large view-port. You’ll be amazed by the high visibility that allows you to see huge barrel sponges, star corals, snapper, grouper and the occasional stingray or sea turtle gliding past.

    After you return to the surface, you are returned to the waterfront via the transfer boat. 

    Night Option:It's the same 45-minute submarine ride, except that you'll explore the water's depths after dark. Special lights on the submarine allow you to view nocturnal marine life, particularly predatory fish that don't usually show themselves during the day. It's a memorable and eerie experience that makes for the perfect end to a night on Grand Cayman!

    A fantastic opportunity to go under the surface of the sea in a submarine. It dives to just over 100 feet below the surface to the sea bed at the edge of the volcanic Island and it takes you to the edge of the plateau...More

    This very well run excursion is well worth the time and money if you don't snorkel or dive. The staff are informative and helpful and the equipment is top shelf. The downside is that they only travel to the edge of the harbor and there...More
