As far as I know, you can visit the waterpark, Aquaventure and most the resorts marine exhibits only if you:
- Are a guest staying at Atlantis.
- Are a guest staying at an Atlantis affiliated or owned resort. (This is what we did).
- On a cruise line shore excursion. Most cruise lines that visit Nassau have shore excursions that visit Atlantis. I believe on our cruise if you wanted to just visit "The Dig" Aquarium it would cost you around $35.00. Our cruise 's "Aquaventure Shore Excursion" cwas around $165 per person. This included a day pass to the water park, "The Dig" and all of the marine attractions.
Note: When you have admission to the waterpark, it includes all slides, pools, rivers, beaches and marine exhibits. It doesn't not include animal interaction up-sell tours/experiences.
I have heard that there is possibility in off season, you may be able to walk up to the resort and buy a day pass to Aquaventure. But there are no guarantees that this will be available. The resort will want to make sure that their guests and even booked tours have priority. I think I did read somewhere when a day pass was available, it was over $100.00 per person.
I believe walking in off the street, you can purchase an admission to "The Dig" aquarium from between $25-$40 anytime.
And all of the resort's public areas, lobbies, casinos, mall, many of the restaurants and some aquarium exhibits are free for anyone to roam around at no charge.
