Know More about this tour

When you arrive in port in Barbados, head below the surface of the Caribbean Sea for an underwater shore excursion aboard the Atlantis submarine. Your adventure begins at the Shallow Draught , where you will have time to browse for souvenirs or enjoy a cool drink and snack at Cafe Sublime before boarding the shuttle vessel Ocean Quest.

After a seven-minute scenic cruise with a quick talk by the Atlantis crew, you’ll arrive at the dive site, where you can see the submarine surfacing and make the easy transfer from the Ocean Quest to the Atlantis. You’ll be seated in spacious, air-conditioned comfort as your incredible underwater experience begins.

First, the submarine will dive to 55 feet (17 meters), where you can see the beautiful reef and the abundance of marine life, including spectacular coral, sponge and colorful fish, through large, clear viewing windows. The submarine will then descend to depths of 115 to 150 feet (35-45 meters) to view what has in the past been reserved only for scuba divers – a sunken shipwreck.

The 40-minute underwater journey is narrated by a knowledgeable co-pilot who will point out and explain the amazing sea life, as well as give a history of Atlantis and the submarine itself. After resurfacing, you will transfer back to the Ocean Quest and return to Shallow Draught. All adult tickets include a complimentary drink.

The Atlantis submarine is proud to be the first attraction in the Caribbean to receive the double award from Green Certification in alliance with Green Globe International.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Bridgetown for your ship’s departure. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

    I was very excited for this excursion for the longest and it definitely lived up to the hype. My only complaint is it be longer, but spending 45 mins in 140ft deep waters and seeing the ocean floor and wildlife will blow your mind, do it.

    This was fun adventure. I was apprehensive about it since I'm a little claustrophobic but it turned out to be lots of fun!

    Organized and fun. Staff were informative and accomodating toward us. Wish we would
    have seen more fish, but I know that is out of their hands. Would highly recommend.

    It was nice to see what it would be like on a submarine and the coral was beautiful but I was expecting to see larger fish than we did and after 5 minutes it was all the same,all in all it was a nice excursion but I would not do it again.
