Wow - awesome tour.
Getting the opportunity to board a submarine and visit the bottom of the ocean - highly recommended!
A great experience and luck was on our side..... we saw 3 turtles
This was a great trip. Submarine is very roomy with great views. Pick up was on time and all people involved in the tour were very helpful and friendly. It was very interesting seeing the wrecks and the commentary was very informative. Thw whole tour was extremely well organised and co-ordinated. Highly recommended
Unique experience, but do not expect to see a lot under the water. I was lucky to see some fishes and artificial reefs.
It was very nice trip.except I was unable to make the pictures turn out I gest was to the amout light that was there.
Wonderful experience. Very comfortable, lots of room and great viewing portholes. Comentary very informative and lighthearted.
A definite must do! We traveled down about 120 feet and saw all kinds of fish and really interesting reefs. The guide was well informed and entertaining. It also was a comfortable ride. The water is amazing clear and makes you realize that you really are in paradise!
What a great experience. It was awesome getting to go that deep underwater (up to 115 feet) and seeing the ocean from a different perspective. We saw tons of fish and plenty of green sea turtles. Commentary was great as well!
The trip was truly awesome! From the pick up at the hotel to the boat ride out to the submarine, everything was exceptional.
Very interesting trip. Would recommend it to anyone. Once in a lifetime experience. Would do it every time I go to Hawaii.
submarine tour was agreat experience,hotel pick up and drop off included.the submarine takes about 50 minutes,but if it is something you have never done then it is amust.
Awesome experience. We went 110 feet below sea level. My only surprise was that I had been told that the 11am booking was for the premium submarine. In fact there were 2 subs picking up people, the premium and the standard. As it turned out, we were put on the standard sized sub. Even so, it was terrific. The crew member was very knowledgeable, there was lots of space on board so you didn't feel claustrophobic, and we got to see many kinds of Hawaiian sea creatures. The hotel pickup was on time too.
This was a pretty cool experience. They have done a good job building reefs to attract the fishes, but they were literally only around the reefs - not much to see elsewhere. We all received guides so we could identify the sea life when we were on our sub. We went as deep as 117 feet, and the ride was surprisingly smooth, both the descent/ascent and along the ocean floor.
The boat ride to the dock was just as fun as the actual submarine ride.
I was kind of thinking that the subs may be some kind of glass-bottomed boat or similar, cynic that I am, and was surprised at the announcement over the PA: 'Please look off the port side of the vessel and watch for a big bubbling spot on the ocean surface'. Apparently the subs release some air to identify their positions to the mother ship, to ensure they won't surface in the path of a pleasure, commercial or even navy vessel. Whoa - up it came - a real submarine!!
It was a lot of fun, didn?t take too much time and the kids loved it. I can now claim to be a submariner. A great adventure!
Note from Viator: The review is from Jeff Lewis; read Jeff's full report of this submarine tour over on the Viator blog.
This was one of the favorite tours we took. The submarine crew was very professional and safety minded. Knowledgeable about all the underwater fish and environment made it wonderful. Although a lot of the environment is staged to some degree you have to expect that as you can't control the wildlife of the waters. Overall very pleasant and would like to do it again.
