On our recent visit (third time to Harborside at Atlantis), our family chose to snorkel The Dig instead of an off-site excursion. I wasn't certain what to expect for our tour and feared we would only get to be in the water at one of the smaller exhibits. NOT THE CASE! We stored our personal items in lockers, put on our snorkel gear and got directly in the water at The Dig - the main and largest aquarium at Atlantis. We swam with hundreds of fish, including two large spotted rays and the 12 foot wing span Manta Ray! It was amazing to be swimming along on the surface and have this massive ray swim right under you. Staff were great and narrated the tour and told us what kind of fish we were seeing, along with key facts of how they acquire their fish, maintain the environment, etc. It was a pretty short tour - about an hour total - but well worth the money and left no time to get bored. Highly recommend.
