How can you experience all the amenities that the Atlantis Resort has to offer if you’re docked in Nassau for only a day? Buy a day pass.
It’s best to purchase your pass online before arriving in The Bahamas, but you can also buy passes on board your cruise ship or at the resort itself. A day pass to Atlantis grants you access to the property as if you were staying there – minus the room. Packages vary and are limited by occupancy.

Explore the marine life and ruins of the lost city of Atlantis at The Dig, the resort’s aquatic exhibit. See piranhas, jellyfish, Moray Eels, lobster and lionfish. You just might spot Nemo, too. Don’t miss the touch tank where you can interact with conch, starfish and sea urchins. Sign up for Behind The Myth and go behind the scenes at The Dig.
Dolphin Cay is a unique experience that’s especially perfect for families. Your kids will love wading into the Shallow Water Interaction to play with the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. You can also go snorkeling with the dolphins, be a trainer for a day or just grab a beach pass and play in the sand while the dolphins swim nearby. Be sure to upgrade to the Beach Pass with an Interaction if you want to get in the water. Passes include lounge chairs with umbrellas, towels, all-day service and non-alcoholic beverages.
The water park
Aquaventure is a must for your trip to Atlantis; you could spend your whole day here. This 141-acre water park features waterslides, river rides, 11 pools and even rock climbing. The main attraction is the Leap of Faith slide, an almost 60-foot vertical drop from the resort’s iconic Mayan temple that sends riders barreling through a clear tunnel submerged in the shark lagoon.

Dining options abound at Atlantis: there are more than 40 restaurants and bars. But you might be too busy playing at the water park or touring the aquarium exhibits to sit down for a meal. Grab a quick breakfast at Platos and lunch at Shark Bites, but save time to enjoy a nice dinner.
The Point Restaurant and Bar on the beach boasts a delicious selection of salads, sandwiches, steak and seafood - all prepared with Bahamian flair, as well as the best sunset in Nassau. A visit here is the perfect way to end your day at Atlantis.
