Submarine Tours, Kailua-Kona
You enter the boat Atlantis to go to the submarine a few miles offshore. Once you are in the submarine you go down to 100 feet (about 300 meters). Under water you will have a good view of the coral and fish.
We went to the office of the Atlantis Submarine Tours on Alii Drive.
There we checked in for the tour that we had booked online.
It was a short walk from the office over to the pier, across the highway.
We waited there for a ferry that took us out to the submarine located in the bay.
While waiting on the ferry everyone was lined up and everyone got their picture taken.
This was so they could sell you copies later, not for identification.
We were on the ferry about 10 minutes before we arrived at the submarine.
Once on the sub, we were told to climb down the ladder. Below there were rows of seats facing large port hole windows.
After everyone was seated we went down 104 feet and was able to see some beautiful fish swimming by us. At one point we were sitting on the sandy ocean bottom.
After 30 minutes below we surfaced, went up the ladder, got on the ferry, there we were offered the chance to buy the package with our photos and CD of submarine for $20.
It was a bit pricey at $89 each for adults but I would do it again.
There offer 3 tours a day.
