Guests can enjoy a variety of accredited PADI courses from the basic Discover Scuba Diving programme to the Open Water Diver qualification to the more advanced Assistant Instructor courses for those wanting to pursue a career in diving.

Certified PADI divers can enjoy an exhilarating half-day trip in the Arabian Gulf aboard one of two luxurious 37 foot Seamaster powerboats. The exciting half-day trip starts at 8.15am and includes two ocean dives at fifteen different dive sites within range of The Atlantis Dive Centre including man-made reefs and shipwrecks off the coast of Dubai and the magnificent Musandam. There is a maximum of 10 divers per half-day trip and towels and refreshments are provided. Qualified divers can also choose to broaden their dive experiences with advanced and specialty diving courses including deep diving, night diving, wreck diving, underwater photography and many more.

For non-divers, guests can participate in the Discover Scuba Diving course which will guide them through the basics of diving alongside an experienced PADI instructor and is inclusive of a pool and ocean dive. Guests can also enjoy sunset cruises and take in the breathtaking surroundings of Dubai’s famous landmarks and the Palm Jumeirah. Departure times vary according to season and are approximately 2 hours. Refreshments are provided throughout the cruise.

Younger guests can also join in on the fun with the Atlantis Junior Programs including The Seal Team and the Bubblemaker. Led by a qualified PADI Instructor, The Seal Team program is designed specifically for guests aged 8 years and older.
