Whtehr you want to explore with the semi-sub, the submarine day tour or the night dive, there is something for everyone
For over 20 years, Atlantis has been taking visitors to explore the incredible underwater world of Cayman. The fleet has grown over the years and now comprises the 48 passenger Atlantis XI Submarine and two semi-submarines.
Atlantis 100ft Dive – The submarine has a spacious cabin that is air-conditioned, and for your added comfort, maintained at sea level pressure (no effect on the ears). The smooth ride and clarity of the water will amaze you as you explore Grand Cayman’s Underwater Marine Park to depths of 100 feet.
Huge barrel sponges and star corals abound the reef while colorful snappers and groupers, even the occasional stingray and turtle, may pass within a few feet of your large view-port. As you descend along Grand Cayman’s famous sheer walls you will see myriad species of fish, corals and marine animals.
Atlantis Seaworld Explorer is a state-of-the-art semi-submarine developed in Australia for use on the Great Barrier Reef. The vessel does not submerge; rather, you descend into the hull of this cruising underwater observatory and sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the surface of the water. As you explore you will view an abundance of marine life through large, clear windows.
Your first site you visit is a dramatic shipwreck, the Cali, a steel schooner built in 1900. This ship ran aground 100 yards off the coast of Grand Cayman in 1944. From here, your captain takes you to Cheeseburger Reef. Be sure to have your cameras ready when their diver enters the water and begins to feed the hundreds of multi-colored tropical fish right in front of your window. A marine expert provides answers to all of your questions and informational narration on the amazing underwater world around you. Hear more tales of the high seas as the Seaworld Explorer takes you to see the wreck of the Balboa – a 375 foot freighter that sank in 1932 during one of the worst hurricanes in the island’s history. The ship was literally broken into pieces as she was bounced along the ocean floor by huge waves. Much of her cargo of wood was used to reconstruct the buildings you see in George Town today. After an incredible one hour tour, The Seaworld Explorer brings you back to the dock in the heart of George Town. This is the most comfortable and affordable vessel of its kind.
