Atlantis Hotel Aquarium - Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas


Good morning,

Today we have some images from the Atlantis Hotel on Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas. I was there recently with my daughter and granddaughter and took these images.

 
Below and beside the hotel there is a giant aquarium that extends out into and below the hotel gardens. To see it from the "inside" take a trip through "The Dig."


The giant sting rays are famous residents of this aquarium and are featured in commercials we see on TV for the hotel. If you look closely you'll notice there is a swimmer in there with all those huge fishies. Is he watching the fishies or are we watching him?

Inside the tunnels of "The Dig" my granddaughter is taking pictures of the jellyfish in light that reminds us of a Disney movie.


To provide even another view there is a tunnel beneath and through the aquarium. We could view the fish next to us and above us.  The terrific part here is the natural sunlight allows for viewing the fish in excellent light for photography.

So, if you get to Nassau and to the Atlantis Hotel complex, the aquarium is a great way to spend an afternoon.

You don't have to be staying at the hotel to visit. We took a cab from the cruise ship port to Paradise Island.

Enjoy,

Lois
