Atlantis Submarines offers a selection of awesome underwater tours throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Many people don’t know this, but they also offer Big Island submarine tours. With technologically advanced underwater vessels, the Atlantis Submarine tour is awesome for large groups traveling with kids, those that want to see Hawai`i’s underwater paradise without getting wet, and celebration groups with kids (birthday parties). Without a doubt, the Kona submarine tour is fun, engaging, and educational for all that take part in this Hawai`i ocean activity.

The Island of Hawai`i (Big Island) is probably the best place in Hawai`i to discover underwater world on a submarine. Obviously, the Big Island is the biggest of the Hawaiian Islands, and because of that it has one of the largest and most diverse Hawaiian marine eco-systems. When traveling underwater with Atlantis in Kona, guests will have a chance to see over 90% of Kona underwater. Submariners will see vibrantly colored reef formations, including an 18,000 year old, 25-acre coral reef. Guests will also be an eyewitness to rare marine habitats, a host of tropical fish, and have a chance to see Green Hawaiian Sea Turtles, Spinner Dolphins and Hawai`i’s famous Manta Rays in their natural environment.

The Atlantis Submarines Tour in Kona is a 45-minute adventure, and can descend up to 100-feet deep into Hawaii’s Pacific Ocean. All guests must be able to walk down a 10-step ladder, and children must be a minimum of 36” inches in height to partake in the Kona submarine tour. Food and beverages are not provided. Tours are provided in English, but headset translations can be provided in Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish at request (without any additional charge).
