Default Atlantis Submarine

I was thinking of trying to do the Atlantis Sub in Cozumel and was wondering if anyone has done this and if so did you go through the ship or book elsewhere. How far down does it go and any other comments.

We did it and regretted it. It goes down, if I remember correctly, about 20 feet. At any rate, it was too deep for the light to reach the bottom well. Everything looked swimming pool blue, except the occasional fish that swam right up to the window. Our table mates went on the glass bottomed boat and saw the beautiful colors. If you still want to do it though, it's easy to walk from where the tender lands. Simply walk over and buy a ticket.

We did the Cozumel atlantis Sub, and found it to be terrific! The guides spoke in 3 languages, to accomodate the passengers, and we dove to 97 feet. Yes, it was dark, but we got to see some massife coral formations. You must remember that coral is a living thing, and to see the huge formations was awesome.
Take at least 400 speed film and a camera without flash, 800 speed would be better. The falsh doesn't work on the double windows.
We went home and took scuba lessons because of this wonderful excursion.
