This was a good tour staff very knowledgable but remember this is not the Barrier Reef in Australia, because of the depth you go colours gradually disappear. We did however see a variety of fish in the man made artificial reefs.

We booked the larger sub for our trip under water. If you take this tour do the larger sub. Overall the ride was ok. You go down 117 feet. There is much to see provided the fish cooperate. It lasted about 45 minutes. You travel around and through man made reefs were the fish do stay. Saw one large turtle.... More

I only went on this because my partner wanted to. I'm glad I did. I had just as good a time as him, maybe better. I found from the moment we got on the boat getting out to the submarine to getting back interesting and informative. I thought I would be bored but it was fascinating and had lots of... More

Boring trip. Not worth the money. Wouldn't recommend it. Do something else if you can. It's OK if you never been under water before.

Lasting roughly 45 minutes, this tour explores the bottom of the ocean up to about 100 feet. You'll see some ship wreckages that were deliberately placed to be integrated as part of the ecosystem and the marine wildlife. I'd recommend.

This was my second Atlantis Submarine experience. We went on the same trip 13 years ago and made sure to do it again on our recent family vacation now that the kids are older. This is a great way to see the sea Iife underwater. The boat takes you through several natural and man made reefs along with a few... More

Holding the boat for late arrivals is not acceptable. 8:30 check in gives people 30 minutes...plenty of time! Disappointed that the reefs were man made. Lots of fish to see!

Aloha Stacy and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your valuable feedback as it helps us to improve the guest experience. We are glad that you mentioned the man-made structures at the Waikiki dive site. Naturally, Waikiki has very sparse reef environments and over the past 100 years the natural coral has been disappearing.... More

A client of mine raved about this trio but for $130 it wasn't even worth $50, with so many customers, it was heavily over priced for the experience, and was not authentic ships, plans of pearl harbour ww2 war, hardly any fish either, also I found a tour company offering same tour for $109!

If you going to do this excursion, buy through your hotel because going around twice in a circle to look at man-made sunken stuff and man-made stuff isn't worth $100. The sea turtles that are playing while waiting for the boat to take you to.submarine are absolutely delightful...And free to see. I would say spend your money renting a car... More
