Overview

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.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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. 

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 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.

Unique fun experience
Dana_M
, Dec 2021
Great and memorable experience, knowledgeable and friendly staff. However, I wished that in addition to checking the temperature, they would have checked the body’s odor, because when you put 45 people together in one enclosed space and one of them did not shower, it disturbs the entire group, although we all had masks on. Besides that, it was a great adventure.

Should not miss

Must have in your to do list. The trip is short but it is well worth it. Esply if you are not a swimmer or scared to get into deep water then this is certainly for you. The crew was awesome and worth every penny. My mom could not climb down the ladder to get into submarine and opted to stay in the boat but the crew on boat was very nice to her and once we returned back asked us to go to office to get her ticket refunded (Even though we did not even think abt it) and ofcourse office did refund the ticket for my mom.

A super cool experience that displays various fish and a few shipwrecks. It’s cool to do to say you’ve been on a submarine. I wish it was a little bit longer but overall, definitely recommend.

Take the dive
Sharon_G
, Dec 2021
The whole staff was friendly, from Katie at check in to the shuttle crew to the sub crew, especially tour guide Brian. Everyone has a front row seat on the sub, and we were treated to lots of fish and coral as well as a couple of modern shipwrecks. I was a little worried about seasickness, but I had no trouble (unlike my experience in boats). I would recommend the tour to anyone who would like to experience “diving” underwater without the scuba gear.
