“It is quite an experience!”

Atlantis Dive Centre
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

My 15-year old son had just picked up scuba diving back home and wanted to try the "Dive with the sharks". We would assume that he needs some training, but little did we know that he was only "trained" in the hotel pool for about 10-15 minutes! Arrangement was then made for the dive in the tank at the Atlantis Aquaventure Park the next day!

The dive in the tank itself was interesting and probably one of a kind! The alternative would be to do it at the huge aquarium at the Dubai Mall for a slightly higher fee. All went well. They also rent you a underwater camera for AED200 which is quite useful!!

Like most things, these activities are not cheap in Dubai, but it's quite nice for the experience.

We signed up for all four of us to try this out as our 8yo son was super keen so we wanted to go as a family. Three of us could not go and only dad went. Dad is a certified diver so found the experience a bit boring. Also, dad is very competent in the water however felt that the water coming up to the lower lip, inside the helmet would be rather scary for first-timers.
They don't tell you it is very cold compared to the warm waters of the park. Nor did they tell us there were no refunds allowed. So when we asked for a refund for the three who could not go, we were given the runaround by the guys running the program. We were not impressed by the men who were running the program. However once the Atlantis management were involved, we were very impressed with their customer service and helpful attitude.
The water park is fantastic and gets a 5-star rating from us.
