What You Can Expect

Atlantis Submarine Expedition - Grand Cayman

See marine life in Grand Cayman!

Make your way to the the Atlantis Adventure Center on the George Town waterfront, then start your 90-minute Grand Cayman experience with a safety briefing followed by a 5-minute boat transfer to the Atlantis XI submarine.

On arrival, walk across the ramp and step aboard the deck of the submarine. Once you enter the air-conditioned and pressurized cabin through a large hatch, your captain will complete pre-dive checks of the vessel and begin your descent. During the 45-minute ride, you’ll reach depths of 100 feet (30 meters) while exploring the underwater world of Cayman's National Marine Park. 

Enjoy a smooth ride and find out what lies beneath the water’s surface as you peer through your large view-port. You’ll be amazed by the high visibility that allows you to see huge barrel sponges, star corals, snapper, grouper and the occasional stingray or sea turtle gliding past.

After you return to the surface, you are returned to the waterfront via the transfer boat. 

Night Option:
It's the same 45-minute submarine ride, except that you'll explore the water's depths after dark. Special lights on the submarine allow you to view nocturnal marine life, particularly predatory fish that don't usually show themselves during the day. It's a memorable and eerie experience that makes for the perfect end to a night on Grand Cayman!

A unique experience to see the sea floor at depths below 100 feet!

This is not something that I had ever put on my bucket list we went because friends invited us. But it was a great experience. We dived to around 120 feet and viewed coral and a variety of fish that I had only before seen in documentaries. The staff was great, the guide informative and the sub well maintained and comfortable. I did not even experience the ear pops I was expecting because the cabin pressure was maintained at surface level. I'm not a great fan of snorkeling. This is a great alternative.

As I did not have proof with me I was still able to board the sub for a really interesting undersea ride and saw a large turtle on bottom of reef.

Great Expedition, but I suggest to take the night one instead, I think it would be better because of the lights. Still we love it.

Well worthwhile! There were only 8 people on our tour, which was a huge plus. There were lots of fish, even saw a couple of lion fish. Would definitely advise sitting on the right side of the pilot for the best view.

Luck of the draw? The sub was not crowded so we could use windows on both sides, clearly made it more enjoyable. It allowed my non scuba wife to experience much of what I did - except she didn't get wet.

We did the night time submarine and it was amazing. We saw lobsters, crab, eels, a nurse shark and much more. And amazing staff!

Great tour and very interesting! Do think the night version may show more colors. Crew were entertaining and informative! Easy view out portholes. Noisier inside than I had anticapated but did not affect hearing tour information. Very happy we added this to tours we did on Cayman!
