The Big Island got its start 18,000 years ago when lava flowed into the ocean and created one of the most magnificent coral reefs found anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands.
It's this natural "garden" of coral, and the Hawaiian marine life and reef fish - BIG and small - who call it home that makes this submarine tour experience such an unforgettable journey into the deep ocean.
Your Atlantis Submarine Kona adventure takes you on an unforgettable 50-minute journey aboard an Atlantis 48-passenger submarine, as featured in National Geographic television specials. You'll explore a huge natural coral reef and its marine inhabitants!
A new adventure awaits you at depths up to 100 feet (30 meters). Enjoy the amazing view in air-conditioned comfort and safety of a Big Island submarine.

A great way to experience undersea for those who cannot scuba or snorkel. We have some amazing pictures and had a great time with the crew.
This was my second Atlantis submarine ride. It is a thrill to go down in a sub. It felt very safe. The crew was delightful and pointed out things to see. Each person had access to a large porthole for viewing. This is a good option for those of us that do not dive or snorkle. We dove to a depth of approx. 100 ft, Unfortunately, at that level, everything looks blue! You do not see the pretty colors of the fish or of the coral. I wish they had used exterior lighting to offset the blue coloring. Friends that are divers, use lighting for that purpose. For that reason, I gave it a 4 instead of a 5.
When we booked this tour, we thought it was a bit expensive, but we're on vacation and life is short. It was worth the cost. Neither of our party are great swimmers, so to be able to see the reef and fish in their natural environment was wonderful. The shipwrecks were also very interesting. Our guides were informative and helped make the experience memorable unfortunately, I am bad with names and have forgotten his name. Thanks for making our first trip to Hawaii even more terrific!
It was a great experience. For medical reasons, the wife and I are unable to get in the water, but the submarine adventure allowed us to get down to the reef and see many different species of fish including a shark and barracuda. The guide that traveled with us was knowledgeable and had a great personality. The support staff was helpful and ensured we were able to get in and out of the sub safely. The equipment was all first rate and seemed safe. Unless you are planning on scuba diving, it was simply a great way to experience the reef, and I highly recommend it.
This tour was very good. I saw more sea life than when I did the trip in Honolulu but this was due to the location.
We saw lots of different kind of fish and everything was well explained--if you are not a scuba diver--this pretty much replaces the experience--but without the danger--and you see different fish, etc than snorkeling--it was totally worth the moola--we had a truly special experience.
Very good undersea tour. Lots of coral, fish, and wrecks. Cool AC in sub....no claustrophobia. Lots of veiwing ability. Guides are very friendly and informative. Well worth the $.
This is a very good tour for anyone. We really enjoyed it and the price is very reasonable.
So impressed since we checked-in until the end. It was such a unique experience, the crew was amazing and very knowledgeable . They also made you feel safe. The whole experience lasted about 45-50 minutes. So impressed to see the sealife. Highly recommend !
just getting on the boat and in a submarine and going more than 110 ft below the surface was plenty exciting. The crew was friendly, the speaker was funny and knowledgeable. A must see.
Loved loved loved this trip...the only thing I would want better is that the trip would be longer. Maria the tour guide was hilarious and very informed and educated. Ty again for this tour. Will definitely recommend it to others!
Very interesting to see all types of sea creatures in the deep ocean, definitely a unique experience.
Initial printing showed 100 minute boat ride out to the sub- it was actually a 5 to 10 minute boat ride and was a wonderful experience, at low season only 12 tourists were on the sub for our tour. The next day an NCL cruise ship pulled in and they were full up.
