“Got to snorkel with Athena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

One of the attractions at Atlantis that really works is the snorkel in the Ruins tank. Although not very organized, being able to mingle with the fish was a treat. Make sure you are changed into your swim suit before arriving. The staff was short on details and some members of the excursion had to hussle back to a rest room to change. The giant manta-ray, Athena, gave my hand and arm a swim-by and it was wonderful to have this gentle giant touch me.
Skip the Stingray experience. Swarming rays and dive-bombing seagulls make this a no-go. Very scary for kids.

“Aquarium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The area was natural and had a large variety of marine life.
There were no negatives since you are in the Bhamas. Whats not to like.

“One of the Most amzaing Aquariums in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I have been to the boston aquarium, the baltimore aquarium and others. None have even come close to the atlantis aquarium. This place is incredible. If you are in the bahamas you must go. Go after 6:00 pm if you are staying off the property and you can go for free.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The kids were amazed with the marine habitat. So much to see. There was a schedule everyday of what activities were happening with the sharks, stingrays and other ones. Seeing all the fish and them being so close to you was great.

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My children especially enjoyed the sharks (of course).
The admission fee is a little pricey in my opinion, but I'm still glad we did it.
