Atlantis Submarine cruises will take you on your Big Island submarine cruise on one of their 5 million dollar underwater viewing vessels to depths of over 100 feet and stay submerged for approximately 40 minutes!

You will see the fish from the vantage point of this Big Island of Hawaii submarine tour that would be unavailable to you through other means. Even scuba divers would have difficulty submerging to this depth and staying down for this length of time. You'll see much Hawaii marine life, tons of tropical fish and enjoy encounters with White Tip Reef Sharks are not uncommon. As you descend deeper you will notice the colors inside the submarine cabin changing as the light is filtered from the water above.
Once at the sea floor you'll be immersed in the world of the fish and the underwater sea life. This Big Island of Hawaii submarine tour is highly educational and is recommended for children, however they must be over the height of 3 ft tall.

Big Island of Hawaii Submarine Tours - The submarine trips in Hawaii have proven to be among the most popular of all the activities we have. Although this is a favorite among children please just remember that they have to be at least 3 ft tall. Everyone has a window seat and it’s truly exciting to descend to depths in excess of hundred feet. You’ll be down for over 40 minutes and that’s longer even than most divers would be able to stay at that depth. One thing to also remember is that the submarines are fully pressurized and have rushes of air-conditioned air pushing past you at all times so you’ll be at the height of comfort.
