The tour was fun! We didn't see a whole lot...a couple of schools of fish, two sunken boats, and a morey eel hiding a rock opening. We were expecting to see colorful coral, but it was all the same color dying off. The port holes were clean, but the water wasn't that clear, so the objects of our photos were faint. The crew was exceptional. Very accommodating and friendly. The experience was fun because we were in a sub. A lot like a glass bottom boat ride as far as what you get to see.
The luau was exceptional. We had been to one before in Maui 3 years ago, but we enjoyed this one tons more and the food and entertainment were superb. The same dancers for each song, but they changed their clothing for each performance. Beautiful, beautiful costumes and Hawaiian dancers.

What you will see is pretty darn good, but what you learn and how you learn it is wonderful. The staff is fun and knowledgeable. Well worth the money - great experience.

Thanks so much for this experience. We have never been on a submarine before, and who knew it was going to be so much fun. And educational. And beautiful. Would definitely recommend this submarine tour to others.

Submarine was fun and saw many fish and a white tip reef shark. Looking out of the ports was hard on the neck and shoulders, but otherwise fun.

This tour offered a variety of activities. The submarine was very entertaining and educational and good for someone who does not swim or snorkel. The luau was also good, but the show was too long to be sitting in those uncomfortable chairs.

The staff were very gracious and provided a lot of good information. We were somewhat disappointed we didn't see more big fish, but that is just luck and has nothing to do with the tour.
The Luau was outstanding! We really enjoyed the King's arrival, tattoos and beverages. The performance by the dancers was great.

Atlantis sub trip was very good, saw some amazing coral reef fish and dived over 2 wrecks which was very spooky! Also visitted the fish nursery where locals are trying to restock some of the more beautiful of the reef fish - Yellow Tang were everywhere! Very informative guide.
The Island Breeze Luau was also quite good. The food was excellent, but drinks expensive after your free Mohito. If its a cultural experience you're after, the Celebration of The Kings at the Fairmont Orchid is a much better and more exciting show. Overall, a good combi-tour.

Split my review into two:

Honestly as an adult that spent most of my trip snorkeling the reefs this was not the most entertaining experience. I am unable to scuba anymore for health reasons so it was cool to get lower and see some wreaks but it's not a LOT different than a simple snorkel if your ok diving down. The kids seemed to love it. My fiance is the reason we took the sub and he was amoung the excited kids because he'd never been in a sub (I have... so it's not as novel)

The luau:
The luau is entertaining for sure and you will need to see one from some location. I choose island breeze because of the vegetarian dish they offer in addition to the buffet. The pasta dish I got was alright but not special but with that along with some menu items I was fairly satisfied. Most traditional hawaii food is not vegetarian, so from that perspective it's not a buffet of cool things for a veggie but it is for a meat lover. They do lift the pig out of the pit at this one (I guess not all do). Drink are alcoholic but don't taste good.

There is another tier of seating at the luau that allow you to get vip access, more entertainment and the best seats. Buying from viator will not get you this access or allow for an upgrade - you'll have to buy your luau elsewhere or some the hotel or something. I'm not sure the cost of that, but I would have liked to have better seats as we were way in the back corner and that made it hard to see the dancing or get any pictures.

We were seated at the back and by the time the sub got to whatever the guide was describing it had swung away and there wasn't much to see. Perhaps, the pilot could have waited longer to turn. Other than that, it was fun. Nice, professional staff.

Très désappointant, on a vu que des petits poissons et des épaves de bateaux.
