    This was a great experience. The guide was very good and the comments were very educational. It was not a full submarine so we had room to spread out a bit. It was exciting to be so far below the surface of the ocean. I knew from reading reviews that the coral would not be lit and colorful. It was still wonderful to see what is down there. We saw a turtle and many different schools of fish. I really enjoyed the experience.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our excursion on the Atlantis Submarine. The entire excursion was about two hours. The time aboard the submarine itself was only about 40 minutes. But it was enough to see thousands of fish, including a grouper about 6 feet long and a sting ray playing in the sand. Lighting 100 feet down naturally is a bit dimmer, so the fish don't always show up as brilliantly colored as they would in an aquarium, but with a bit of photo editing we did get some of the blue and yellow to appear. We were mildly surprised that the cruise ship offered the identical cruise for even less than Viator. But at the time we booked with Viator, we didn't know that would be the case. And we have no regrets.

    This was one of our favorite excursions during our week in Cozumel. I am not going to write much because everything and everyone associated with it was fantastic. I highly recommend this adventure.
    The only thing I would suggest (if it is even possible), would be to create some kind of submarine mounted underwater lighting that they could turn on for just a short part of the dive so as to see some of the brilliant colors that I think exist at the deeper depths - the limited light causes everything to be blue. However ! I would go again anyway.

    It was so cool to be that far under the ocean, over 100 feet in some areas. I typically am a little squirmish with smaller spaces and esp under water, but I felt very safe and enjoyed my adventure.

    This is a difficult review to write as we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the experience of the submarine and thought Francisco and the team who looked after us were excellent.
    The problem we had and it still doesn't feel quite right was with the administration team at Atlantis. We booked the tour some months in advance and went for the 11am tour in order to give us time to get the return ferry from Cozumel and meet some friends also visiting Mexico back in Playcar on the mainland at 3.30pm. We did go to the 11am sailing but arrived back in Playacar to find we had a text and email from Atlantis telling us our time had been changed to 1pm due to adverse weather conditions noting that it was glorious sunshine and the sea was like a mill pond in the morning. The real reason was that they had arranged a bulk trip off an American cruise liner and had about 24 passengers from the one liner. On receipt of the email I dropped a line back to Atlantis saying we had enjoyed the trip but felt like 2nd class citizens as the weather was perfect and had they been honest they would have admitted the cruise liner commitments took priority for them. The Atlantis response was : This is an offshore excursion, tour departure times, may change depending on weather or operating according of the minimum of participants. Im sorry for this misinformation this time. Thanks for let us know your remarks, as they help us to improve our service. Credit that they responded but the lack of openness and honesty was disappointing.

    Great, close up view of the reefs. The guide was very knowledgeable. Kids ages 15 and 16 really enjoyed the experience.

    This tour was amazing!

    Wow.....all we can say was this was definitely worth the money to take this tour. If you are not a diver, taking this submarine down to the reef was just an amazing way to see the ocean life down below. One of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide onboard the sub were very knowledgeable and gave us tons of info on the different ocean life we saw down below. Would definitely want to do this type of tour again if offered in other places like Hawaii. Just awesome!!

    I seldom find that an excursion is worth the cost! However, the submarine ride was worth twice what I paid, although are never would have gone at that price. The only negative is the

    This was an awesome experience. Not being a diver myself, this was an excellent way to get an unbelievably close look at life in the coral reef. This is a little pricey, but I highly recommend it. You won't regret it. Just amazing.....
