Travel Blog #132 – Kona Submarine Ride

Feb 16, 2022 | Activity Information

Today we decided it would be fun to go on a submarine ride with Atlantis Submarines. We checked in at their office which is located just across the street from the Kailua Pier. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and gave us our tickets and directed us where to go to check in. We walked across the street to where the ferry was at and got onboard.

Within a few minutes we were outside of the harbor and headed out to meet the submarine. It wasnt long before the white bubbles of the submarine surfacing became visible in the distance in front of our boat. As we pulled up along side of the submarine the crewman set up a walkway between the two vessels that we used to board the submarine.

Once we had climbed down the ladder into the main cabin of the submarine we chose a seat towards the front so we could look out of our own portholes as well as the large drivers porthole on the front of the submarine. During our dive we passed shipwrecks and saw all kinds of different fish. My girlfriend has never been SCUBA diving before and when we were on the submarine we were deeper under the ocean then she had ever been before!
