If you don't swim or snorkel, this is the way to go. guides were very informative they knew all the fish, was a great time, recommend it highly.
My grandchildren were enchanted!
The views were great. The crew was able to move the sub so that both sides would get view's of special places on the ocean floor.
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.
A very exhilerating and educational Adventure for all ages!!
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 !!
