Diving the Ambassador Lagoon

Over the weekend Amy and I did something that we've been hoping to do since we arrived in the UAE. We made a single tank dive in the Ambassador Lagoon at the Atlantis.

Years ago when I worked at Club Med on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, I was lucky enough to visit the neighboring Atlantis resort to use their water park, admire their Chihuly glass installations, and stare in amazement at the incredible aquarium they'd built. The Atlantis didn't offer a dive package in their lagoon at the time, but I always wondered what it would be like to dive an aquarium like that. Fast forward twelve years and I find myself on the other side of the planet, with convenient access to another Atlantis resort, with an even bigger aquarium, that has all kinds of dive packages!

I'm going to let the pictures and video do the talking, but needless to say, it was an incredible experience!
