What people are saying about Island of Hawaii

Our submarine trip was so awesome; the crew was knowledgeable, fun, and just great overall. We saw so many beautiful fish, and even two reef sharks (which we were told are a rare occurrence). Kids would ask the crew to identify a fish with random or very little description, and they were able to do it and even tell fun facts about them. Fantastic trip, great value!

Welcoming and friendly staff. Very knowledgeable about the local sealife. Not handicap accessible as it is a submarine. I did get to see two sharks. Really great experience.

Experience of a lifetime, so many different fish, including a reef shark, and a knowledgeable and amusing girl to tell us all about what we were seeing. Well worth it!

Guide was full of information and funny quibs. Very professional staff. Would recommend to friends and family.

The experience was amazing, could certainly do it again.
