You will have the opportunity to get an up close view of exotic marine life while diving to depths up to 130 feet. Be amazed by colorful schools of tropical fish, huge sponge gardens, the mystical beauties of the coral fields and two sunken wrecks.

Saw everything that the excursion description promised. Bright, sunny day illuminated reef well. Would avoid a cloudy day - don't think you'd see as much. Every seat (48) was taken. Crowded, but still enjoyed!

This is a nice tour for those who cannot do the more active underwater tours either because they can't swim or have physical challenges. We were picked up by a boat and had a nice ride out to the submarine, about 10 minutes. You do need to be able to transfer to and from the boat to submarine and then step down a ladder backwards, maybe about 8 eight steps. My husband uses a cane and has some mobility issues but was able to do it. The tour staff kindly passed his cane down ahead of him and back up the same way. We went down to almost 140 feet. The reef and shipwreck were fun to see, got some nice photos and enjoyed the info of the guide. We were given Dive Certificates on completion. On the return trip we had an option to be dropped back at the pier, or across the way near the downtown restaurants saving steps or cabfare one way.

Expected to see colorful fish and plants, but everything was gray, light gray and dark gray.

Reminded me a lot of the submarine at Disneyland but this one actually does go underwater. Lots of fish. Wrecks were impressive. Very good windows - could see lots. A bit short for the price.

Fantastic! Huge windows in the sub prevented any feeling of claustrophobia. Each seat faced a window. We saw lots of fish and two shipwrecks. The guide was informative and funny. Unfortunately, the photos did not turn out to show the clarity which was actually visible in the sub. I have some trouble with one leg, but it was easy to get into and out of the sub for me. The ladder was more of a staircase, very much like the ones on the tenders. I loved this excursion!!

I don't like the sub-marine part, but I like the baby bridge views. I like the driver, but not like the agent. I think the agent is a little bit less friendly. But, I have to give her credit that she did introduced a lot of the island (WITH HER OWN POLITICAL OPINION, THIS IS THE PART I DON'T LIKE.).

I loved the Atlantis sub. From the ship you walk as a group a short distance to the dock where you go on a motorboat tot he submarine. You sit back to back at your porthole and see all kinds of interesting sea life and a couple of shipwrecks. The guide tells you what to look for and I was especially lucky to sit up front next to the assistant, Chris, who spotted many fish and pointed them out to me. It lasts about an hour underwater. On the way back they show you some sights of Aruba and see the beautiful shoreline.

Decending 130 ft down in a submarine to view a sunken ship and lots of fish was a great time. Then back to the ship and off we went. No time to hit any of ARUBA's cantinas or beaches this time.
