My 5 year old daughter and I took this tour today, and we both really enjoyed it! This was the first time in a submarine for both of us, and it was exactly what we expected. We were able to see a variety of different fish in a great environment, as well as different shipwrecks. Our guide, James, did a fantastic job at providing informative and entertaining narratives throughout. My daughter was a little scared and timid at first, but the whole crew made her feel completely comfortable and I am so happy her and I had this experience together.

Went on this submarine in kona had the safety briefing walked out to a boat transfered to the submarine had a second safety briefing. Large area with big windows and air conditioning to help for those with claustrophobic problems. Went 107 feet deep saw several fish species and coral as well. An oceanographer narrated the trip very informative. Saw 2 shipwrecks also. One hour went fast great time for kids as well but they have to climb down a ladder to get into the sub.

"Be realistic about what to expect 100 ft below surface"

We took the tour with great hopes for truly awesome marine life exploration prior to snorkling the next day. Yes, the idea of a submarine ride is exciting and with a skilled narrator onboard it’s a fun activity. But. For us, it was anticlimatic to be down in the waters well past where any colour could be detected on the fish or mammals (if lucky, we were not). We just should have done our homework on what to expect down below well beyond where the rays of sun can do their magic. The narrator’s stories are captivating and informative, truly the most valuable piece of this tour. Having snorkeled the next day seeing all the same fish in technicolour, I feel the submarine ride isn’t worth it. If you’re unsure about getting into water yourself, the submarine tour is a good alternative. For us, a bit of a dampener to the tour was the upsell of the photo package of our group and a CD with digital photos. For the price of the tour, the group photo surely could be a part of the package - a low-cost value-add rather than a wasted photo print for much of the boat crowd could make a lot of people a lot happier by a simple gesture.

Loved it had a great time! Its something you should really do if you like to snorkel or even if you do not its amazing either way, I had no idea there were so many fish so far down. Got to go down 100 foot plus and that was really cool. I snorkel almost everyday when I visit so didn't think it would be so amazing but it is definitely worth it.

My wife and I live here in Kona nut have not been on the Atlantis sub, so I decided to surprise my Valentine. The day was clear and I never expected to go so deep, 106 feet, and we saw several fish that we have not seen when diving. This should be a must do on everyone's list while on the big island.
