What You Can Expect

Maui Atlantis Submarine Adventure

Atlantis submarine surfacing off the coast of Maui

The Maui Atlantis Submarine tour begins in Lahaina Harbor, where a 15-minute, open air cruise brings you out to the dive site and sub. Transfer aboard the state of the art, air conditioned submarine, for a 45-minute aquatic experience in search of wild marine life.

In 2005, an old whaling ship, the Carthaginian, was scuttled off of Lahaina, and today serves as an artificial reef for colorful coral and fish. Prior to its scuttling in 2005, this area was simply a sandy bottom with very little marine life, and today it houses indigenous fish and a vibrant coral reef.

In winter, from December-May, there’s even the chance of spotting whales on the journey out to the sub, and you never know if one might pay a visit while underwater!

Unique and relaxing experience all safely done. For those of us who cannot snorkel , this is the closest you can be to experiencing the magical underwater world of reefs and live coral not to mention a ship- wreak.This short journey brings you very close almost eye to eye with the tropical fish, turtles and a myriad of marine animals, including live coral.
Definitely worth it.

The narrator was the BEST!!

This is a wonderful way to view the sea life around a reef without having to snorkel or scuba dive. There is no need to spend money on an additional whale watch as plenty of whales can be seen on the way to the sub during the winter months. We even saw a mother and baby! The Atlantis Submarine has a wonderful safety record for those worried about such things. We enjoyed the trip out to the submarine and had wonderful views out of the port holes of sea life with a knowledgeable lecture to accompany it. The wrecked ship is also interesting to view. It was one of our top experiences while in Hawaii.
