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.

Great, shorter tour that we were able to fit in. Mckenzie and Kai were awesome. Wonderful sense of dry humor. They almost didn’t kill us about ten times. Oh and we got lucky and saw a shark plus a pod of dolphins on the ferry back.

It was a good experience undersea for those who can not dive or snorkel. We saw fish and lucky to spot a shark close to a sunk boat. Nice and friendly crew. A bit expensive for what you get.

We honestly expected there to be a lot more fish. Also they said that there would be headphones to translate but they didn’t even work.
