• How to get an Atlantis Day Pass

    Posted on September 3, 2012 by

    If you are coming to Paradise Island or Nassau on a cruise or staying at a different hotel, it is definitely worth spending a day at the Atlantis Paradise Island to fully enjoy Aquaventure and the rest of the resort.  Depending on occupancy rates you can usually purchase day passes right at the Atlantis resort.  The prices for an Atlantis Day Pass fluctuate, but are around $75 per adult or $49 for a child.  The day pass typically includes lunch with your visit.  You may also purchase Atlantis day passes as an excursion from your cruise ship.  Cruise ships also offer tours of the Atlantis, but keep in mind you will not be able to use any of the pools, beaches or water rides while on the tour.  We recommend doing a day pass over the tour because why would you want to pay money to watch other people vacation.  The tour does not allow you to fully experience the Atlantis.  If you are coming from a cruise ship, the Atlantis is only a short 10 minute cab ride from the harbor or you can use the transportation provided by the cruise line.

    Money Saving Tip: For families or larger groups looking to purchase Atlantis Paradise Island day passes, consider reserving a hotel room at the Beach Tower of the Atlantis or the Comfort Suites.  The Beach Tower is the lowest priced hotel on the Atlantis property.  The Comfort Suites includes day passes and is next to the Atlantis property.  A one night stay is usually less than the cost of day passes for a family of four.  Not only will you save money by doing this, you will also have a room where you can shower if you want.  Be sure to confirm with the Comfort Suites that they are still giving day passes to their hotel guests prior to booking.  When booking both hotels make sure you factor in the full price of the room including taxes and fees when deciding to use this option over buying day passes out right.

    How can I buy an Atlantis day pass for 4 adults the 30th of November
    thank yoy

      Normally we would recommend booking a room at the comfort suites which offers free access to the Atlantis and with 4 adults that would be cheaper than buying the passes. As of right now it looks like they do not have availability so your best bet is to purchase them that day at the Atlantis. You can purchase them in the Coral towers lobby of the Atlantis. You may want to call ahead of time to make sure they are not sold out. Sometimes when the resort is booked up they do not sell day passes.

    We’re going to Nassau next week on April 20 on the celebrity line and we like to know if the Dig is still open to the public and it’s still free?
    Thanks for your advice.

      Yes, you can still access the Dig for free, but you cannot go further on the Atlantis grounds. The pools, beach and other water exhibits are only open to hotel guests or those that pay for a day pass.

    We are planning to go to Bahamas on August the 11th and will be staying at a different hotel. Do we just go to The Coral Towers and purchase day passes for the both of us? Can you reserve? Trying not to go and get a ‘sold out’ answer.
    Thanks!

      Atlantis is much better than cable or cabbage beach. You get the beach plus all the water attractions and marine life. How many people are traveling with you? If three or more highly recommend booking the room for around 300-400 dollars for two reasons. One if you book at the Atlantis or Comfort Suites you guarantee yourself a reservation as you can’t reserve day passes in advance. If the resort is at capacity the day you want to go you will not be able to get in. The other reason is cost. The Day Pass that gets you full resort access to the beach and Aquaventure can be over $100 so booking a room with 3-4 people is cheaper than the passes. The comfort suites is usually the lowest cost option, but just verify with them that you get the passes to Atlantis when you book. Your cruise may offer you a cheaper Atlantis excursion, but its just of tour of the property and you don’t get to enjoy the waterpark or beach. You can also do just the west beach which has public access next to the Riu, but you can’t go on the Atlantis property without a bracelet or room key.
