Your submarine tour Kona adventure takes you on an unforgettable 50-minute journey aboard an Atlantis 48-passenger submarine, as featured in National Geographic television specials. You'll explore a huge natural coral reef and its marine inhabitants! A new adventure awaits you at depths up to 100 feet (30 meters). Enjoy the view in air-conditioned comfort and safety aboard a Big Island submarine.
As the majestic island sun begins to set, you'll join in the fun at the Royal Kona Resort for a spectacular evening at the Voyagers of the Pacific Luau and Revue. This exciting traditional Polynesian luau is held in the resort's oceanfront coconut grove and includes a traditional shell lei greeting, torch lighting and Imu Ceremony. There's an open bar while you enjoy Kailua-Kona's premier all-you-can-eat Polynesian buffet.
Following the island-style feast, be entertained by the cast of musicians and dancers as they take you on a fast-paced journey through the South Pacific Islands. Their show includes songs and dances rarely seen in typical luau shows and is highlighted by the Samoan Fire Knife dance. The performance alone will keep you talking for months!

It was a great experience and the guide was very knowledgeable. He answered all our questions and was funny as well. Got to see all kinds of colorful fish and some came right up to the windows. The shipwrecks were interesting as well.
This Submarine tour was hands-down the BEST tour we could have done! The crew was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining! The vessel was comfortable and safe. It felt roomy and one of our group gets extremely motion-sick, and she had NO problems at all! We saw coral, schools of various fish, a shipwreck and sharks, and no one had to get wet!! Not sure it could have been any better.
Following the 50 minute tour, we attended the Royal Kona Resort Luau. Very authentic! The food was better than the only other luau I've ever gone to, so I give this one an A+. The entertainment was equally good. Perhaps all luau's are a bit touristy, but, I think everyone who visits Hawaii to go to one! :). This one had an open bar. The Mai Tai's were weak, but, one could also get beer and other drinks, so it was worth it!
The people that introduced us to the boat and sub were amazing. Very friendly and fun. We enjoyed a no ear penalty to be down at 100' and enjoyed the visual experience.
What a wonderful experience! The staff were very courteous and helpful. Our tour guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable and delightfully funny. Having the opportunity to view the beautiful and varied marine life was fascinating and beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour.
