Discover Atlantis Tour Highly Recommended
Paradise island, Nassau, Bahamas
$29 per person
The Discover Atlantis Tour is a guided tour of the Atlantis aquariums and "The Dig".
The aquariums contain thousands of Caribbean and exotic fish. They are shown in the ruins of the lost city of Atlantis. The guided tour lasts about an hour and then you are free to explore on your own. The admission charge does not include access to the beaches, water slides or pools as they are reserved for Atlantis guests only.
The highlight of our tour was Rosie, a 800 pound, 2 year old manta ray with a 9 foot wingspan. Rosie is beginning to get too large for the aquarium and they have begun talking about returning her to the sea.
The aquarium includes displays of all types of fish and sea creatures including sea horses, moray eels and the extremely poisonous lion fish. The lion fish tank is the only one that the divers will not enter due to the danger. In addition to the aquariums, there are also man-made lagoons containing exhibits of sea life. Don’t miss the predators lagoon with the hammerhead sharks!
The staff at Atlantis has quite the imagination and sense of humor. Instead of the usual "keep out", the warning sign for the shark lagoon has a sign that says "This lagoon contains wild animals with sharp teeth." And " Please don’t drop your butts on the ground, the fish crawl out at night to smoke them and we are trying to get them to quit." instead of please don’t litter.
There is no parking for day visitors at Atlantis, but if you pull up in front of the Coral Tower Hotel, the valet parking is only $6.
