On this exciting Kona submarine tour, dive deep below the cobalt waters just off the Kona coast, where an entire world of fish and marine creatures is waiting just below the surface. As the submarine descends towards the colorful reef, peer through the portholes at fish that swim to within inches of the submarine windows, and experience the sense of peace and calm in this world beneath the waves. This is a great way to explore underwater without even getting your hair wet, and, if you’re very lucky, there’s even the chance you could see a passing shark.
What to Expect
Thanks to the volcanic lava rock that filters the rainfall and runoff, the water here on the Kona coast is some of the clearest in Hawaii. On this enthralling Kona submarine tour, explore the clear waters and colorful reefs just off of the Kona coast, where schools of tropical reef fish flit above patches of sand and through caves. 
You’ll see all types of tropical marine life on this Big Island submarine tour, from schools of small manini, or convict tang, to larger fish such as the big-eyed emperor fish that slowly cruise above the reef. 
This Atlantis Submarine Kona Adventure has been featured in National Geographic television shows, and explores the ocean just off the coast to depths of 100 feet (30 meters). For the entirety of the 50-minute underwater journey, you can relax in comfort in the air-conditioned sub that only holds 48 people, and casually watch through the circular portholes as fish go swimming right by.

The real thing!

I was expecting a boat with underwater viewing windows, but that is not the case. This is a real submarine that takes you 100’ underwater. Each passenger has his own viewing port, the staff is friendly and give interpretive information about the sights. Oh, and...More

Nice trip

It was a somewhat sedate submarine ride and nothing very eventful happened. Mackenzie tried hard to get some enthusiasm going on the trip without much success but she was very knowledgeable about the marine life. My 10 year old daughter had fun. Thanks.

Not what we expected

If you snorkel, you will see more fish with better clarity. No chance of seeing anything big The grandkids were so disappointed. Not worth the moneyMore

Not much to see

We were kind of disappointed with the lack of clarity of the water and diversity. I must admit that we are very spoiled with our Bahama waters. The water was stirred up b/c of a freak storm, so maybe it would have been better another...More

Comfortable way to see the reef

This is a must-do in Hawaii. You get up close to the reef and to 2 shipwrecks. You'd only see this much if you went scuba diving, yet you can do it from the comfort of an air conditioned sub with no training. Great for...More
