We had such a fun experience. Some of our group were non swimmers but still had a go and they just loved it. The guys on board were just amazing, they were with you the whole time so you felt safe the entire experience. Highly recommend you give it a go.

It was a great adventure riding a submarine scooter. They only had 6 scooters but while you waited for the scooters you could snorkel in the bay which was great. A lot of fish, sea turtles and great views to see.

My wife booked this adventure for us even though I was a little hesitant (non-swimmer here). Our adventure was scheduled for 12:00pm. We took a bus from Waikiki but were a little late, and discovered the boat had already left! Fortunately, the owner offered to take us out to meet the boat in his jet-boat, which was pretty awesome! We even stopped to see a whole bunch of dolphins along the way, and was an extra bonus to the adventure. Really appreciate the ride, thanks!

For others travelling from Waikiki by bus, I'd suggest aiming to get there an hour early. Bus 22 goes straight from central Waikiki to where you need to go, but it can be very packed to the point where it won't pick up additional passengers (so suggest intercepting it at an earlier stop towards the Hilton Village before it passes through the whole city towards the zoo). Also it only runs every 30 to 40 minutes, so if you miss it, be prepared for a plan-B.

Anyhow, once we got onto the main boat, we borrowed some wet-suits and prepared for our scooter ride! I was a little nervous, but everyone on the crew, from the captain to the divers, were super nice and supportive. You just go down the ladder on the side of the boat, grab on to the scooter (a diver is there to guide you), duck your head underwater to get it into the scooter bubble and you're done. The rest is just hanging on and enjoying the scenery.

There's a bit of pressure going down, and coming back up, so you'll need to hold your nose and swallow (divers will instruct you), but if you have some kind of inner-ear problem that could be affected by this, its something to consider (the sensation is much stronger than going on a flight or a very tall elevator).

The underwater adventure itself was fairly unique and memorable, especially for a non-swimmer! $100 is a fair bit of money, but it was definitely by far the most memorable part of the trip, and would do again 10x over! Thanks again to everyone involved for a great time!

We had an incredible time on the Oahu Submarine Scooter Adventure. Our trip to Honolulu occurred on Dec 20-27 and this was our sixth trip to Hawaii in the last seven years. We ve done it all, whether its a Segway tour, parasailing, horseback riding, spearfishing, etc, we've pretty much done it all......that is until we tried the Scooter Adventure. My wife was a bit sceptical as she is a non swimmer, but after some coaxing, she did it and she had a blast. We all said that this was probably the highlight of our trip and let me tell you what separates this excursion from all others....ITS THE STAFF on board the boat that makes it all the worthwhile. Captain Chaz is not only helpful in so many ways, he is fun and makes the boat ride enjoyable. The guides in the water and the photographer are very professional . The owner of the operation(sorry, forgot his name) was even on board to explain the adventure and he even went to his house to pick up a T-shirt for me when they didn't have my size. We ordered the picture and video package and we are so thankful we did, because it was so amazing to be down there with the fish . I have to say that initially, my wife chickened out, as there is a two second moment when you have to put your head underwater to get into the helmet, but after Captain Chaz explained it and showed her again, she was fine. The crew aboard was so helpful and they are fully aware that there are kids and nonswimmers aboard and they do everything in their power to accommodate everyone. The departure is just behind a strip plaza and we finished off with a plate lunch that had incredible garlic shrimp.
If I had to rate this adventure out of ten, I d give it solid ten. I cant really find any flaws with it and it was so much fun. They know exactly how to run a professional business and I even saw them clean each helmet after each person was finished. Great job , guys...Looking forward to doing it again at our next visit.
Signed,
Monty from Canada

My 10yo son found this adventure for the family to do prior to us departing Australia, so we booked it online. I have to say it was the highlight of our trip. My husband and I were very happy with the way the guys on the boat assisted my son when he had a problem pressurising his ears when using the scooter. They were amazing as well as very professional and understanding. Well Done to Captain Chaz and the boys. Thank you we will always check Viator for other adventures prior to our next holidays.

A little challenging to get to. If you see Costco, it is right across the bridge.

Great guides, very helpful and courteous and safe. This is a once in a lifetime thrill!

this was the highlight of our trip. An AWESOME experience!! This can be as easy as sitting on a chair and watching fishes in the aquarium. Just need few seconds of braveness
