Atlantis Submarines – Family Hawaii Activities

Best Hawaii Activities for the Entire Family – Atlantis Submarines

The best way to experience Hawaii’s magnificent marine life without getting wet? Hawaii Submarine Tours! Each member in our family (ranging from age 4 to age 70) had a great time viewing thriving reefs with Atlantis Submarines. Atlantis Submarines offers a popular Hawaii Tour that the entire family will enjoy.

Our Atlantis Submarines adventure began when we were picked up at our hotel and taken to Port Hilton via trolley.

We climbed on the Atlantis Submarines shuttle for a scenic ride to the submarine.

We sat on the top deck and enjoyed beautiful views of Diamond Head and Waikiki as we headed out to sea.

The kids got excited when they saw the submarine waiting for us!

Although this is one of the best Family Hawaii Activities there are a few things to know before you reserve an Atlantis Submarine Tour. Children must be a minimum of 36 inches tall. All passengers must be capable of ascending and descending a near-vertical ladder.

The interior of the 64 passenger Atlantis Submarine is spacious.

The submarine features large view ports. The kids were glued to the ports in awe of the marine life on the other side of the window.

On the Waikiki Atlantis Submarine Tour we viewed 2 sunken ships: the US Navy Vessel, the YO-257 and the 111 ft Korean fishing vessel, the St. Pedro. We also saw 4 reef structures: a series of concrete pyramids and remnants of two sunken airliners.

We enjoyed seeing a variety of Hawaiian marine life and checking them off in the complimentary souvenir guide log.

We saw several Green Sea Turtles – some of the turtles even swam right past our window!

The submarine descended to 120 feet.  We kept track of our depth with the display at the front of the submarine.

After the Hawaii Submarine Tour we returned to Port Hilton. Port Hilton is located at Duke Kahanamoku Beach, the 2014 winner of Dr. Beach’s Best Beach in the US.
