On this tour you will:
  • Take an approximate 25-minute, air-conditioned motor coach drive through Nassau, as you make your way to the world-famous Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island.
  • Upon your arrival, your guide will escort you to Atlantis' Dolphin Cay — an 11-acre, state-of-the-art facility, home to more than 20 dolphins — and prepare yourself for an unforgettable hands-on, in-water dolphin interaction.
  • Take in an informative introduction on dolphin behavior, don a wetsuit and immerse yourself in waist-deep water for an approximate 30-minute meet and greet with a live dolphin.
  • After your interaction, dive into the fun of Atlantis' newest 141-acre treasure: Aquaventure waterscape. Featuring state-of-the-art water slides, river rapids, waterfalls, Mayan temple (incorporating Leap of Faith, Serpent slide and Challenger slides), a quarter-mile long wave river and more, Aquaventure is not your usual water park.
  • Experience four thrilling water slides at the 120-foot tall Power Tower (incorporating The Drop, The Falls, The Surge and The Abyss). Plunge down the 70-foot drop of the Abyss and find yourself submerged in a deep cenote filled with Alligator Gars. Coast along the bouncy slides of The Drop, The Falls and The Surge or catch some rip-roaring waves and white-water rapids on The Current and The Rapids. Children can immerse themselves in the fun at Splasher's children's pool, a treasure-chest themed, water playground featuring four slides, water cannons, jets, wheels, ropes, sails and more.
  • Then, enjoy lunch (included in the price of this tour) with options such as burgers, wraps, pizza, salads and more at one of several kiosks located on the property.
  • Continue on and experience even more of what Atlantis Resort has in store. Soak up the sun on one of the white-sand beaches, the lagoon and pool areas.
  • Embark on a self-guided tour of the "ruins" of ancient Atlantis in The Dig, which is an elaborate replica of an actual archeological site. Explore a labyrinth of underground passageways brimming with large viewing windows filled with exotic marine life.
  • During your free time you can visit the casino, if interested, spend some time shopping in the Marina Village or simply wander through the impressive lobby of the Royal Towers.
  • Finally, after your visit, embark on a short 10-minute walk back to the bus pick-up before beginning the approximate 15-minute drive back to the pier. Note: Return transport runs every half hour from 1:00pm-5:00pm. Guests choose their own return time.
