Discovering Cozumel's Fascinating Underwater Beauty

Marilyn JonesSince 1961, when noted diver and nature lover Jacques-Ives Cousteau filmed a television documentary off the coast of Mexico, Cozumel has grown into a world-class tourist mecca and one of the Top 5 dive destinations in the world.

Even if you are not a diver or snorkeler, there’s plenty to do on the island; exploring Mayan ruins, visiting animal sanctuaries and cultural attractions are a few.

But what if you really want to explore the waters and witness its glorious marine life and you don’t scuba dive or snorkel? The Atlantis Submarine is your ticket and you don’t even get your feet wet!

On a recent Emerald Princess cruise, my traveling companion suggested we take the shore excursion, which included exploring Chankanaab National Park in a submarine. Neither of us had been on a submarine, so we signed up at the shore excursion desk.


Our Atlantis Submarine adventure began with a cruise in a small boat out to the submarine. At the appointed spot we all watched as the submarine surfaced.
