I was not a fan at all. If you are sitting on the left side of the boat once coming down, you do not get to see anything. This tour is not worth the money that i spent. 80 of our view was nothing but ocean water. The tour guide on talking loud on the radio phone the whole tour as well. I was so disappointed. Do not waste your money.
The expedition was great, the service of getting my ticket to get on board was horrible. the email they sent me said that I could use the e-voucher or the place where you check in at had the information so no problem, wrong. I get there and they tell me I have to have a voucher printed out they cannot take the e-voucher. I spent an hour trying to get internet service so I could email my information to the Atlantis Expedition check in station. The lady had my name and confirmation where I purchased online, but I had to have a print out.
Very dissatisfied with the service of getting checked in.
The staff and equipment were great. However, the water was murky resulting in poor visibility so that you could not see all that there may have been to see. The variety of fish and coral was not that great, which may just be a function of what is available off of Aruba. We saw several sunken boats that were mildly interesting. We have taken the Nautilus submarine tour off of Lahaina, Maui and found it to be much better - clearer water, greater variety of fish, etc.
This was a amazing experience!!!! The tour guide was so friendly and very funny which helped to make the trip more memorable than I had expected!!! I will suggest to anybody going to Aruba to take advantage of this tour!!! I truly enjoyed myself!!! I will post pics!!!
