The Atlantis Azores is a very comfortable liveaboard that carries a maximum of 16 passengers in 8 cabins. Each air-conditioned cabin has a private head and shower. Seven of the cabins are on the lower deck and the suite is on the upper deck. Between dives guests can relax on the sundeck (either in or out of the shade) or try the amazing hot tub! The salon has an excellent collection of books, videos and music to enjoy.
The dive deck covers the aft third of the main deck. Large gear lockers double as seats and line the rails and centre. Two tanks are mounted at the back of each locker, so it is easy to don your equipment at your seat or ask for the tank to be taken to the dive platform. A large three-tiered camera table has plenty of space for camera assembly or preparation and separate rinse tanks are kept for cameras and videos. The photography department provides rental cameras and accessories as well as the services of the photo pro if you require a model or expert advice. A range of PADI and NAUI speciality courses are offered, including Nitrox training. A full range of diving equipment is available for rental by pre-arrangement.
For after the dive there is a freshwater shower and clean towels awaiting, as well as the chef’s freshly prepared snacks to appease the after-dive hunger pangs! The chef on Atlantis Azores likes to prepare food especially for you, starting with freshly brewed coffee and boat-baked bread. Ripe seasonal fruit from Atlantis’s farms will be juiced and served before the first dive. Lunches are usually fresh garden salads, omelettes or soups with yoghurt and fruits served as desert. Dinners might be ‘Filipino Suppers’, Seafood Specials, or perhaps an ‘Asian Fusion Night’. Homemade biscuits, cakes and fresh fruit are served between dives.
Most diving is done from one of two zodiacs, which means that travel times to and from the dive sites are very short. Nitrox is available on all cruises and technical diving and re-breathers are possible by pre-arrangement. All divers are required to have their own dive computer and surface signalling device.
