What to Expect
Begin your adventure in downtown Oranjestad, where you’ll get a safety briefing and orientation at the tour center. Then step aboard the tour’s surface vessel for transfer to the submarine. This technologically advanced passenger submarine, certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, makes it possible for even nonswimmers and small children to dive deep below the surface of Aruba’s waters. Grab a window seat in the submarine and prepare for the dive. Get views of marine life on the Barcadera Reef and see two local shipwrecks. Learn about the marine life you see, the reef ecosystem, and the history of the crashed ships through your crew’s informative commentary. After you surface and head back to land, you’ll receive an official dive certificate to take home.

My son, 7 yo, and I enjoyed our submarine exploration. The whole experience was about 2 hours, including a short boat ride to and from the sub. During exploration, we went as deep as 137 feet and saw fish, coral, 2 different “shipwrecks,” and the bottom of the ocean. It was fun

We recently did the Atlantis Submarines Expedition in Aruba. I took my two 20-something daughters. We enjoyed the excursion but thought it was more suited for younger families. Kids would think it was really cool. The experience of being in a sub & actually going down to the

Awesome underwater experience! Tour was exactly as described. Ride was smooth and air conditioned. Visibility was excellent, as captain turned sub to allow those on both sides of ship to see same sights. A great option for seeing beautiful fish for those unable to snorkel.
