Built for the pending Atlantis Marine World, Atlantis Explorer will offer passengers a "floating classroom" experience, as it sails down the Peconic River during a 2.5-hour cruise. Participants will discover geological history, as well as local flora and fauna, comprising Long Island's diverse natural resources.
During the cruise, the boat will "beach" itself along a remote region of Flanders Bay, allowing travellers to disembark directly to the shore. The vessel is the first phase in the development of Atlantis Marine World.
