Delve into the depths of the Caribbean on a submarine shore excursion from Cozumel port. Board the U.S. Coast Guard-certified Atlantis submarine and journey to 100 feet (30 meters) below the surface of the sea for an unforgettable underwater adventure. You'll explore the quiet waters of Chankanaab marine park and view coral formations and marine life previously only seen by divers. A knowledgeable co-pilot will provide details on your submerged surrounds while you marvel at the scores of tropical sea life in air-conditioned comfort. 
What to Expect
Come along and experience why Cozumel is one of the top five dive destinations in the world. Dive 100 feet (30 meters) underwater and enjoy the magic onboard a real US Coast Guard Certified submarine as you make the underwater journey to Chankanaab.

Your Cozumel shore excursion actually takes place above the ocean floor, alone at the island's most famous and unique attraction, Chankanaab. An environmentally protected marine park, Chankanaab is home to a huge variety of sealife until now seen only by divers. Your submarine dive adventure begins on board ferry vessel Ana, taking you on a 12 minute cruise along Cozumel's west coast.

Upon arriving at the Chankanaab dive site, you are transferred to the Atlantis Submarine where you will have the opportunity to view this underwater paradise through large windows in air-conditioned comfort. Marvel at the huge variety of tropical fish including parrotfish, grunts, and groupers as your captain expertly navigates through magnificent 30 foot (9 meter) coral heads.

Throughout your voyage an informative, live narration is provided by an experienced co-pilot who will be happy to answer any questions. Don’t forget your cameras – Chankanaab is a once-in-a-lifetime glance into an amazing undersea world. If you’re not a certified diver, this Cozumel shore excursion is a great opportunity to view the wonders of the Chankanaab reef.

After your 40-minute dive, the submarine will resurface to meet the ferry which will return you to the ticket office.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Cozumel for your ship's departure. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

A great excursion for all!

I was a bit concerned about doing this excursion because of mild claustrophobia and possible sea-sickness. My concerns were unwarranted. There was some rocking on the boat ride to the submarine and before the submarine dove underwater, but it was very mild. The submarine felt...More

I booked the excursion through NCL and that included transportation. It’s only a couple miles from the pier so you could easily take a taxi or Uber.
