What You Can Expect

Best Kona Submarine Adventure and Royal Kona Resort Luau

Lava Legend and Legacies Luau

Likely to Sell-out! The Royal Kona Resort Luau regularly sells out weeks in advance, so book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Your submarine tour Kona adventure takes you on an unforgettable 50-minute journey aboard an Atlantis 48-passenger submarine, as featured in National Geographic television specials. You'll explore a huge natural coral reef and its marine inhabitants! A new adventure awaits you at depths up to 100 feet (30 meters). Enjoy the view in air-conditioned comfort and safety aboard a Big Island submarine.

As the majestic island sun begins to set, you'll join in the fun at the Royal Kona Resort for a spectacular evening at the Voyagers of the Pacific Luau and Revue. This exciting traditional Polynesian luau is held in the resort's oceanfront coconut grove and includes a traditional shell lei greeting, torch lighting and Imu Ceremony. There's an open bar while you enjoy Kailua-Kona's premier all-you-can-eat Polynesian buffet.

Following the island-style feast, be entertained by the cast of musicians and dancers as they take you on a fast-paced journey through the South Pacific Islands. Their show includes songs and dances rarely seen in typical luau shows and is highlighted by the Samoan Fire Knife dance. The performance alone will keep you talking for months!

This was a very fun activity and appeals to all ages. Cody was our guide and he was very informative of the marine life as well as the ocean itself. We enjoyed the submarine more than the Luau but the Luau provided a pleasant insight to the Hawaiian culture.

My husband expected this tour to be kind of cheesy but went along to please me. He admitted this after the trip and expressed how surprised and pleased he was with it. He said it was the highlight of his trip! As for me, I loved it! The guide (Samantha?) was very knowledgeable. It was well worth the money especially paired with the luau.

Submarine trip on Wednesday was rescheduled due to heavy swells. Atlantis staff texted before 9am to arrange new day if possible, we did it on Friday instead, and so the Luau voucher was faxed direct to Royal Kona for collection at 5pm.
Luau was absolutely fantastic, professional set-up, great band, amazing dancers including the fire-dancer as the finale, excellent food, coffee and open bar! (soda, juice, beer, spirits and Meitai) Throughly enjoyed by all, especially the kids. Parking at luau was just $3, or there is free parking about 5minutes walk away. Photographer takes a group shot on entry, which is available for purchase after an hour for $20.
Atlantis Submarine tour was well organised and safe. Photographer takes group shot before going out on the boat shuttle to the sub, and photos are available for $20 on return to boat, this includes a CD with your photo and images of fish etc from previous dives. The submarine went to depth of 100ft and included going around a shipwreck. We saw all sorts of fish and coral, including an eel "Elvis" and a barracuda. Optional purchase of the dive-log ($1) was well worth it as the kids spent lots of time ticking the boxes of the fish they had seen. Tour is narrated by one of the staff (not pre-recorded) and so he was able to tell us exactly what we could see and answer any questions.
Highly recommend doing both tours !!

The submarine staff was very nice and helpful. Viewing the ocean bottom was interesting and fun. Enjoy every bit of the view. The Royal Kona Resort Luau was so much fun. I would suggest this luau to everyone. The entertainment was great, food was good, and the environment was wonderful. Definitely would do this again!!!!

An enjoyable time, quite the experience. Wish we had seen more variety of fish.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2014

A professionally operated and maintained submarine that will give you an experience that you cannot duplicate. A staff that you can trust, with experience and specific knowledge of what lies beneath.

I'm just an average person who thought this sounded fun. You will see what is in the ocean that day. Set realistic expectations, enjoy the tour, and absorb the experience.
