UNIQUE UNDERWATER WEDDING PACKAGE IN THE WORLD'S ONLY UNDERWATER HOTEL
For couples looking for a truly different way to start their married life, Jules' Undersea Lodge offers all of the romance and adventure of an underwater wedding combined with the comfort and convenience of a dry setting. Featured on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and other major television programs worldwide, the hotel is the first and only in the world to offer weddings and honeymoons at five fathoms! Guests scuba dive to enter the hotel, which has a wet room entrance area, two bedrooms and a common room, which is a combination living room, dining area and kitchen.
Weddings in Jules' Undersea Lodge provide exclusive use of the Lodge for an intimate setting for both the wedding and honeymoon. Check-in time is at 1:00 pm, and check-out time is at 11:00 am. The couple earn their Aquanaut Certificates and qualify for an optional Underwater Habitat/Aquanaut specialty rating. Extended underwater honeymoons in the hotel are available.
Upon arrival in the world's only underwater hotel, the wedding couple is greeted by romantic music and fresh flowers. The ceremony is usually conducted at 3:00 pm by a notary public, who dives down for the nuptial service. A toast and the cutting of the cake follow the ceremony. Dinner offers a shrimp cocktail appetizer, a choice of lobster or steak, two hot vegetables, fresh salad and dessert. The hotel "mer-chef" scuba dives to the hotel to prepare the meal and serve the newlyweds.
The total cost of the package, with the services of the notary public, flowers and a small wedding cake is $1,750.00 plus tax. There is an additional charge of $175.00 per person for extra guests attending the ceremony.
The couple should arrange for their marriage license prior to their arrival by contacting the Monroe County Clerks Office at the Plantation Key Government Center at (305) 852-7145.

The Amazing Race
Sunday May 8, 2011 Jules' Undersea Lodge was host to the final leg of the Amazing Race "Unfinished Business". The shoot was done in December of 2010. We at Jules' Undersea Lodge witnessed one of the most professional film crews that has ever visited our property.
The Weeki Wachee Mermaids were part of the supporting cast along with the BOB (Breathing Observation Bubble) underwater scooter technical crew. We all worked hard, had fun and met some of the most Amazing people. The difficult underwater segment shot at the JUL lagoon was one of the best and most interesting of the Amazing Race series, and we've received numerous compliments for our participation.
Please remember that we can only accommodate a maximum capacity of 6 guests.
