Overview

There's no doubt that the best way to get to know our 65,000 marine animals is to scuba dive with them. For certified and non-certified divers, Atlantis offers an experience for everyone. The experts can join us on a Predator Dive and hand-feed sharks and rays. For beginners, there is an amazing snorkel programme or you can even walk underwater wearing a special helmet and gaze upon the magnificent ruins of the Ambassador Lagoon.

Diving involves swimming so you need to know how. Discovery dives don't require a license
