  Adam & Duncan Carter outside the Hotel Buena Vista

We moved on to the Buena Vista Hotel on New Providence Island where the exterior scenes for the Madagascar Embassy were shot for Casino Royale. Then we moved onto the absolutely amazing and luxurious Atlantis Casino Resort on Paradise Island to view the area where Bond ‘joined’ Largo’s divers during Thunderball. As we were leaving we could see from within The Dig or the lower level of the Great Hall of Waters, the Ruins Lagoon. Filled with ancient Atlantis artefacts, it was home to over 20,000 deep reef and pelagic fish including a variety of tuna, jacks, snappers and spiny lobster. The 2.7 million-gallon exhibit allowed for the magnificent display of species of fish that would normally be impossible to view without getting wet.
