Owner description: The family friendly, Atlantis Submarine adventure is one of the most unique and highly recommended attractions in Barbados. Imagine yourself in a real submarine, with view ports all around, fully submerged in the aquamarine Caribbean Sea, as curious fish peek in and sea fans sway. This fully narrated "must-do" undersea voyage, can take you to a shipwreck at 130 feet, during the day or night. Create safe, fun, unforgettable memories underwater with the entire family, while preserving the environment.

“Wonderful exerience but it could be longer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Our experience here was quite good. It was something very different from anything we had ever done before and my three year old son was excited about the thought of going underwater and seeing turtles! The overall experience was very good. The staff were very friendly and well informed, and we saw a shipwreck, a turtle and probably a million fishes! The only downside was that the underwater part of the trip was too short and I would have appreciated a longer dive. However it is something that I will not soon forget.

“Not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

The sub ride wasn't very good. I don't usually get sea sick but the short ride out to sub and
and also on the sub going down felt like I could be ill any minute. We actually didn't see
very much and don't think it is worth the money. There was one puffer fish, a turtle and
some schools of fish. The one school of fish was excellent all silver and hundreds of them.
There is a ship wreck you can see also. We were at the front right near the v.i.p seats which
you pay extra for. I couldn't get any great pictures as everything was cloudy. We went on
the 10am trip. The hotel pickup was prompt and only stopped about 4 other places. The
actually ride in the sub is only 40 minutes. You spend 20 minutes on another boat getting
out to wear the sub is. The stairs are very narrow and small so must be able to manage them
to take the trip. There is one free drink while on the ride. I wouldn't take it again not worth
the money.

we went to the Atlantis Submarine on the 3/05/13..it was truly an amazing tour...once in a lifetime experience for anyone. going 150 ft below sea level, actually seeing the ocean floor an sunken ship..the ride was like sitting in a ac room..i wouldn't recommend if u're claustrophobic tho, could be a little close in terms of space. the sub staff were informative an really funny..had a gr8 time and the cool thing is, after completing the tour u get a dive certificate that u keep for memories!

“Unusual way of seeing the coral reef and its population.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

We had an interesting, informative and hilarious tour with the crew. Overall, it was well organised and seamless but there is a long wait between arriving at the terminal and departing for the sub. Photos are taken prior to boarding for purchase at 12 BDS after the tour.
