    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.

    This was a great experience. Once in a lifetime for many. The crews were excellent and the naturalist was very knowledgeable. Everything was as advertised and then some. On and off was easy, although you need ladder-climbing ability and some agility - it was not overly

    Not crowded. Fun to see the fish and reef. We didn’t see any sharks, rays, or turtles. Make sure you park at the hotel even if it says lot is full. We paid $2 with validation vs 28 or 20 per hour at the market parking.
