  • The commentary was funny and the ride was stress free. We saw a shark which my teen girls thought was great. The Atlantis Sub experience was one of the best things on out trip.

  • Fantastic snorkeling.
    Captain and crew were great!
    Our 7 year old enjoyed this thoroughly.
    Captain keeps you entertained and there are some history lessons along the way.

  • My 1st submarine trip a d it was great. Lots of different fish and shipwrecks to see. Jason, the host and narrator was funny and informative. All crew members were friendly and efficient. I recommend this tour.

  • The trip was very interesting and informative. The guide provided the history of the shipwrecks. We would highly recommend this whip on your trip

  • The submarine ride was truly terrific. We enjoyed it and thought it was beautiful. There was a ladder in my wife had a difficult time climbing down and up. If you do not want to get wet but you do want to see all the wildlife this is the way. The tour guides were amazing, helpful, and courteous.

  • I believe our guide was Jessica and she was very knowledgeable about the various fish we saw. It was fun seeing the shipwrecks! Good time!

  • We highly recommend this tour. James, the tour guide, was amazing, informative, and passionate. We saw so many different types of fish, two ship wrecks, and a school of dolphins.

  • Jason was awesome as our narrator. But really everyone on board was excellent. Extremely cool to get down to 100 feet below the water.

  • This was a great experience and lived up to the expectations. I have never been under the water in any vessel, and while I enjoy snorkeling and have attempted scuba, this experience was a fantastic way to see the ocean below the surface. We saw a good amount of sea creatures. I wish the tour was longer, like a couple hours.

  • We loved it! We basically had a private tour with only six people. The guide was great, knowledgeable not only on the fish (and how to correctly pronounce them) but also on the island history, its people, and the importance of coral reefs.

  • The submarine tour was our first and we must say spectacular! Crew was very professional, informative and fun! They were not only educational of everything we seen above and under water, they were also entertaining. They have an awesome new submarine with huge windows and have a perfect safety record. We will go again next opportunity; highly recommended for the low cost.

  • Wonderful experience. The tour guide was friendly and very informative. I would absolutely recommend this tour. One of the highlights of our trip.

  • Jessica was impressively informative. She explained about coral and the sea life we saw. It was a great trip.

  • So amazing. The guide was hilarious and we saw a ray and two sharks!! And puffer fish! It was beautiful

  • The 1 hour dive on the Atlantis was great fun. We saw many different kinds of fish and 4 sharks. The old wrecks were very interesting.

  • Good Program, Nice submarine, I and my daughter (7 yrs old ) had a great time. nice and funny tour guide, strongly recommended.

  • Great, shorter tour that we were able to fit in. Mckenzie and Kai were awesome. Wonderful sense of dry humor. They almost didn’t kill us about ten times. Oh and we got lucky and saw a shark plus a pod of dolphins on the ferry back.

  • A great way to experience undersea for those who cannot scuba or snorkel. We have some amazing pictures and had a great time with the crew.

  • When we booked this tour, we thought it was a bit expensive, but we're on vacation and life is short. It was worth the cost. Neither of our party are great swimmers, so to be able to see the reef and fish in their natural environment was wonderful. The shipwrecks were also very interesting. Our guides were informative and helped make the experience memorable unfortunately, I am bad with names and have forgotten his name. Thanks for making our first trip to Hawaii even more terrific!

  • It was a great experience. For medical reasons, the wife and I are unable to get in the water, but the submarine adventure allowed us to get down to the reef and see many different species of fish including a shark and barracuda. The guide that traveled with us was knowledgeable and had a great personality. The support staff was helpful and ensured we were able to get in and out of the sub safely. The equipment was all first rate and seemed safe. Unless you are planning on scuba diving, it was simply a great way to experience the reef, and I highly recommend it.

  • This tour was very good. I saw more sea life than when I did the trip in Honolulu but this was due to the location.

  • very interesting experience. Recommend to everyone

  • Myself and the boys loved it. Highly recommend it.
