We rode a large comfortable boat with around 70 other guests from the cruise terminal out into the ocean where the submarine was waiting. Boarding was done via gang plank from the boat to the submarine under the watchful eye of the crew who stood by to assist if needed. All went well. There were two entrances into the submarine (one on each end) so boarding went quickly and easily. The interior of the submarine has individual seats (two rows facing back to back) and each passenger has her/his own designated port hole through which to view. The nearly hour long dive visited two ship wrecks and numerous coral formations. While many fish were in the area none were large and the light filtering effects of being under up to 100 feet of water drained most of the colors leaving the viewer seeing mostly in gray shades. The submarine is well lit, clean, ventilated, and large enough to eliminate any possibility of Claustrophobia. This tour is very interesting and well worth the cost. Read Less

We did the early morning snorkel tour and had some free time so we decided to do the Atlantis Submarine tour directly as it was right at the pier. I would highly recommend this as well, but it is a bit steep in price ($122 pp).

1 hour underwater tour and showed the corals found in the ocean near Kona. Could have been longer as we do not get to enjoy trips like these that often.

Really enjoyed this tour of the reef, although you see a great deal more color in the tropical fish when you view the shallower portions of the reef from the glass bottom boat.

In Kona, we did the Atlantis Submarine tour. Went down to 100 feet below. About an hour underwater - enough time. Nice setup, and was not cramped (medium sized group 5 stars)
