 Certified Scuba Dive at Stuart Cove   [N20]

Rating: 3

Certified divers receive an exciting look at the coral reefs and marine life that make their home here. Price includes basic dive equipment (regulator, tank, weight belt, buoyancy control device, mask, snorkel, and fins—wet suits are available for an extra fee). Note that guests age 12–17 must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Typical meeting time is 11:45 am. Cruiser reviews are uniform: The Disney scuba excursion is “OK” but not “great.” The dive takes them “windward” and the waters can be “very rough”—rough enough that most cruisers report that they were able to do only “one of the two dives.” The excursion does “provide all equipment,” but you may only go “10 to 15” feet deep. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to worry about “getting there or back” since it was all arranged through Disney. Overall, the dive was “disappointing” and most felt it would be best to “arrange your own scuba dive” through an outfit like Stuart Cove’s.

Enjoy the 141-acre water park at the famous Atlantis Resort. The excursion begins with a 25-minute bus ride to Paradise Island. Once here, you can explore the aquarium, relax on the many beaches, and dive into the amazing, well-themed water park. The park features nine thrilling water slides that utilize “master blaster” water jet technology, pushing you both uphill and downhill. The water park also has a mile-long “lazy river” with underground tunnels, churning rapids, waterfalls, and conveyors to water slides. Complimentary light lunch, towels, and life jackets included. Lockers and other water rentals are extra. Typical meeting time is 9:15 am. Guests must be at least 48” tall to ride all water slides. A Private Cabana at Atlantis (N65, page 258) can be added to any excursion that includes Aquaventure at $319 for up to 6 guests.

 Atlantis Aquaventure - Half Day   [N66]

A Half-Day version of Atlantis Aquaventure (see N25, page 258) that's available on half-day port visits only. After a 25-minute bus ride (to and from Atlantis) you can enjoy the 141-acre water park, take a self-guided tour of The Dig aquarium, and explore the resort’s casino, shops, and aquarium (but time is short, don't try to do it all). Unlike the longer version, no meal coupon is provided. (On Your Own: Atlantis Resort http://www.atlantisbahamas.com, 888-877-7525)

If your party is "doing" Atlantis excursions that include Aquaventure, this add-on gives you a home base for the day. Up to 6 guests can share the shade and chaise lounges, a personal safe and refrigerator, electrical outlets, a private changing area, and the help of a Guest Services host. Food and drink are extra, but most Aquaventure excursions come with a meal coupon.

 Atlantis Dolphin Cay Shallow Water & Aquaventure   [N27]

Take the above Atlantis Aquaventure and add a 30-minute hands-on (two hours total), interactive dolphin experience at the 11-acre Dolphin Cay. You’ll receive instruction, put on a provided wet suit, and get in waist-high water to meet a dolphin. You’ll have the opportunity to touch and play with the dolphin, but this is not a swim with the dolphins experience. The Dolphin Cay visit is first, followed by the Aquaventure water park access and free time to explore the resort’s beaches, shops, and casino. Typical meeting time is 9:10 am. To supervise or observe a family member's dolphine experience, see Observer at Dolphin Cay & Aquaventure (N46, page 255).

 Ultimate Trainer for a Day at Atlantis   [N39]

Ever wonder what it would be like to train dolphins? Now’s your chance with this excursion and a hefty chunk of change! You’ll begin with a 15-minute bus ride to the Atlantis Resort, then walk 10 minutes to the Dolphin Cay facility where you’ll learn about the care and feeding of dolphins during a backstage tour. After a light lunch with a Marine Mammal Specialist, you’ll meet the resident sea lions. Then it’s time to put on your snorkel gear, hop on a power scooter, and swim alongside the dolphins. You’ll also have an opportunity for hands-on interaction with the dolphins. Includes complimentary use of towels, lifejackets, wet suits (when needed), snorkel gear, and lockers. For more information (or to book this on your own), visit http://www.atlantisbahamas.com/thingstodo/dolphincay/ultimatetrainerforaday.
