Full description

Climb aboard Atlantis XIV, the world's largest hi-tech passenger submarine which holds a whopping 64 passengers—that's 16 more people compared to the smaller 48-passenger submarines. Dive 100 feet below the surface and experience Waikiki’s marine mysteries.

Being in a submarine and descending to 100 feet underwater is an adventure in itself. Also get to see real marine life up close. The Atlantis Waikiki dive site is home to many Hawaiian fishes, coral, and turtles.

Known for its quality and safety, Atlantis is an eye-opening experience that takes you beyond the classroom as you learn about coral, reef life, and submersibles while visiting sunken shipwrecks, airplanes, and other artificial reefs.

Atlantis has a spacious air-conditioned interior, large viewports, and comfortable seating. The hi-tech 64-passenger large submarine offers an enhanced amount of personal space and viewports.

Parking was hard to come by if you aren’t staying in the area, but the tour was amazing! Lots of insight and engagement from the crew and learned a lot of neat facts. There’s no need for a jacket unless it’s cool out and pictures taken prior to boarding will cost about $50 if you want to keep the physical/digital copies.

Enjoyed it very much. But it was a little difficult for someone like me with osteoporosis because of the position on must sit in order to look out the portal windows. If the benches were lower, I would not have to slouch and look up. It would be quite difficult for a tall person with my back problems!

Submarine tour is amazing! Leaving right at Waikiki Beach, I enjoyed the boat ride first, watching the Waikiki, Diamond Head and our submarine coming out. Cruising under the water was very relaxing and interesting! Guides narrated the whole time telling so many exciting facts. Saw plenty of fish It's a must do during your visit!
