Here We Grow Again! Sea TREK, Sanya Atlantis!

Sea TREK Sanya Atlantis

Just back from a whirlwind tour across the globe, our Director of Water Operations and Safety, Carl Hanson, claimed some additional frequent flyer miles last week, as he traveled to Hainan, China, to visit our newest Sea TREK location– Atlantis Sanya! Carl, accompanied by Keenan Mayfield, Sea TREK Field Operations Specialist, checked in to train new Sea TREK staff and ensure flawless operating procedures were in place, prior to opening this exciting new entity!

Modeled after Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, the $1.74 billion Atlantis Sanya is an impressive and massive resort. Overlooking the South China Sea, the resort offers unparalleled excitement and larger than life experiences. The unique, ocean-themed destination features more than a dozen restaurants; a vibrant range of bars and lounges; a spa and fitness center; shopping; and luxurious accommodations.

The highlight of the resort is an incredible marine and water park, with adventures in every corner. Thrill rides and slides, dolphin and sea lion encounters, and diving opportunities combine with an aquarium teeming with over 86,000 residents, including sharks, rays and other distinctive marine life. The aquarium is the perfect environment for the soon-to-open Sea TREK attraction!

Sea TREK training, Sanya Atlantis

Carl and Keenan’s workweek in China included installation of the Sea TREK system, and the training of four new Guides and a Training Coordinator on everything from daily operations, to customer service and safety procedures. They administered a classroom session reviewing the Guide Manual, ran safety drills, and practiced mock-Sea TREK tours. All with a language barrier, a dab of jet lag (over 40 hours of total flight time), and a significant time change.

However, with all of the hard work and challenges, Keenan and Carl still managed to take in some sights and enjoy the area’s cultural offerings. They tried interesting foods like spicy pickled fish head soup, and another soup with a local spice or herb that numbs your mouth! They also “ate a lot of noodles” according to Carl.

The adrenaline junkies explored Atlantis Sanya’s Aquaventure Waterpark and went on an intense water slide with a floor that drops out, launching you into a near free fall! Keenan and Carl had the chance to experience a little Sanya nightlife, and they also checked out the small island of Wu Zhi Zhou. The island is bursting with activities, including Sub Sea’s FunCat electric-solar catamarans and two seasonal Sea TREK operations.

Atlantis Sanya officially opened to the public on May 1st, and the Sea TREK adventure will open in the coming months. We’re so excited to welcome Atlantis Sanya to the Sea TREK family. Be sure to check out their website for updates and more info:
