Climb aboard an Atlantis submarine! Your adventure begins with a seven-minute boat ride from the Kailua-Kona pier along the scenic coast. At the underwater site, you'll transfer to the submarine to begin your undersea adventure. Atlantis submarines are the world's most technologically-advanced passenger submarines with spacious air-conditioned interiors, large view ports and comfortable seating so you can relax and enjoy Hawaii's sea life. In crystal-clear waters, the submarine will descend 100 feet underwater to explore 25 acres of coral reef gardens. The reef was formed on lava that flowed into the ocean 18,000 years ago. Inhabited by hundreds of species of tropical fish, coral and other sea life, it has been proclaimed one of the most popular sites to view Hawaii's marine life.
Note: Participants must be at least 3 feet in height and must be able to safely climb, without assistance, a vertical 7-step ladder into and out of the submarine.

Lots of fun., educational and attention grabbing. .. you can't take you eyes off those windows for a second. Sub comes around so if there is something super like sleeping shark or a morel eel both sides have a chance to see it. We didn't have any children on our sub but I think they would go crazy for this excursion. Best excursion for young children that we took. Not for those who can not climb a ladder/staircase nor those with claustrophobia..
Getting the opportunity to be in an submarine was definitely an unique experience. The narrator did a good job explaining what we saw and why. What you see is dependent upon luck to a certain point - you never know what you will get to see.
We chose to do this since i was not interested in snorkeling but wanted to see some fish. It was a good time but we did not see a lot of different fish. Did see a few schools of fish but they were all the same type. It was very hard to take pictures from inside the submarine and i really did not get any good pictures from thie excursion.
