The Cozumel Atlantis Submarine Tour

Tour Chankannab Reef to a Depth of 100 Ft

Looks like something out of an old Jules Vernes movie, right? And, yes, the Atlantis Submarine experience does share some similarities with the adventure classic, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

Thankfully, you won't seeing any submarine-devouring giant, squids. But you will go deep down into the blue -- to 100 ft depths in some places. And, at the climax, they take you right over to the edge of a 'wall' that drops off to 1,800 ft (!)

If you want to experience the life of a beautiful reef up close and personal but without getting wet or loading on dive tanks, gear and taking lessons, this is a great way to get a first taste of the serene and magical World Down Under.

The craft itself is intriguing, an ingenuous design that we deem worth the price of admission alone. It was developed by the current president of the company, Dennis Hurd, who came up with the idea during his tenure as a design engineer for International Hydrodynamics, a world-leader in deep-sea manned submersibles and the developer of submersibles that could tend North Sea oil rigs to depths of 6,600 feet

Nitty Gritty Details:

Getting There:

The attractive launching station for the Atlantis tour is located approximately 1.5 miles south of downtown San Miguel near the International pier. It's an easy cab ride from anywhere on the east side of the island. Parking for rental cars can also be arranged in advance for passengers with reservations and a paid deposit. (Ask us about this option when you contact us).

Time Involved:

Allow a total of approximately 2 hours. 15 minutes for orientation and registration. 15 minutes aboard the vessel, Ana, which takes you on a very pretty ride out to the sub. 10 minutes to get everyone loaded aboard and ready to roll. 45 minutes under water. Then back you go to where you started.

Schedules:

Email for Availability. This is an extremely popular tour but we will work with you to try to find a trip that will fit your needs.

Prices:

Adults: $105/person

Children: $65/person

Pricing does not include the $2/per person marine park fee which is collected at the time you go out.

A 20% deposit is required to hold the reservation. This is fully refundable if weather causes a cancellation or your ship schedule changes making it impossible for you to join the trip.

Restrictions

Children must be over 3 feet in height.

If you have serious mobility issues, you should be aware that you will be required to climb up and down a sturdy, 7-step ladder to get between the deck of the sub and the cabin and back. There are strong rails on both sides, however, and there is a crew member ready to assist should you need a little extra help..
