Had a great time and went down to 104 feet. Great pictures too. My wife finally got to see what I see when diving.

Not knowing what to expect being a submarine the staff did a great job preparing visitors for the experience. Visitors need to be prepared if the submarine is full that they are close quarters. The narrator provided humor as well as some very educational information...More

While marketed as a 2 hour tour, we were taken by boat to the submarine for a 40 minute dive in the submarine. Very close quarters if fully occupied. Take the night excursion so the lights re-illuminate the colours of the fish and reef below....More

My eyes really enjoyed on a marvellous underwater world at a depth of about 20-30m. I saw the marine environment and abundant aquatic wildlife through the portholes, from sponge beds and coral formations to brightly coloured tropical fish. The normal sea-level pressure is maintained throughout...More

There is a paid parking lot nearby. Get a map of Georgetown and you'll see the parking lot behind the Bayshore Mall. It's only a block from the submarine. We parked there and it was worth it as opposed to squeezing in the... More
We are looking to book through Celebrity cruises and there are 2 options offered. Can you give us an overview of the differences. First one is $142 Canadian and is 1.5 hours as follows: Discover a breathtaking underwater world at the edge of the Cayman Wall—where the ocean floor plummets into the abyss below. On this fascinating submarine journey curated by Dr. Ellen Prager, you'll learn about the coral construction workers that form the foundation of the fragile reef habitat. Dr. Prager is a marine scientist and author (The Shark Rider, Tristan Hunt and the Sea Guardians, The Shark Whisperer) who has used her expertise to make science engaging and understandable to people of all ages. Dr. Prager is a science adviser to Celebrity Xpedition in the Galapagos Islands and is a Safina Research Fellow who has built a national reputation speaking about earth and science issues on television including The Today Show, Good Morning America, the Weather Channel, and the Discovery Channel. You’ll board a state-of-the-art Atlantis Submarine, from whose large ports you’ll view the Cayman Wall. Learn about and observe Grand Cayman’s protected coral ecosystem. Corals are the colorful, beautiful, and fragile foundation of the reef. View grazing fish and top predators, such as sharks. Learn about how reefs protect the shore and provide important sources of food and jobs. Reefs are also significant to human health. Organisms that live amid the corals produce compounds used for the discovery of new drugs. Our professional guide, approved by Dr. Ellen Prager, will discuss the importance of the reefs and provide informative commentary as you descend into the depths. Dr. Prager's curated programs offer entertaining and innovative glimpses into the fascinating world of marine science. GCZ4 Second is $155 Canadian and is 1 hour 45 minutes as follows Board the Atlantis, a state-of-the-art submarine that will take you 130-feet down to a coral reef habitat located just off the south east coast of Aruba. The experienced, professional, and licensed submarine crew will provide entertaining and educational narration about the fascinating marine habitat that surrounds you. Dr. Prager is a writer, consultant, and science adviser to Celebrity Xpedition in the Galápagos Islands. She has built a national reputation as a spokesperson for earth science and ocean issues and has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, the Weather Channel, the Discovery Channel, and elsewhere. She is a Safina Center Fellow who makes earth and ocean science entertaining and accessible to people of all ages. Descend into a coral reef ecosystem and see first-hand this fragile and bustling underwater city. Corals make up the foundation of the reef. Grazing fish keep algae in check, while sponges filter waste. Peer out of the submarine's large portholes and look for sharks and other top predators. Reefs are important not only to the animals and marine life that inhabit them, but also are the site of research for new medicines. Reefs protect the coasts from high surf and also provide food and jobs to the people who reside around them. Marvel at coral, sunken ships, and sea life while enjoying an unforgettable tour approved by Dr. Ellen Prager whose commitment to the sea and to bringing ocean awareness to all people is evident through her engaging programs.
