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!

    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.

    The submarine is a great way to see the fish and not get wet. The beach near the pier is also good for swimming. Kona is very laid back without all the high rise buildings. One long street full of souvenir shops and eating places. We stayed at Kona Resort and enjoyed the Luau. We got to meet the entertainers after the show and had our photos taken with them. The food, entertainment, open bar was exceptional. I am a vegetarian and there was food for me to eat too. I highly recommend this tour and the Kona Resort is also a great place to stay. There is a lot to see and do on the Big Island.

    What an exciting day! Greeted by amazing people, they took our picture before we got on the boat to get to the Submarine. While in the Sub we saw 2 shipwrecks with great stories of how they became at the bottom of the sea. Saw a lot of fish and a shark! 1 of population has been in a Subarine, so advise to try this if you can. The only part I thought was weird is they take your pic at the beginning and then at the end you are charged for it. Well we paid like 350.00 for a 45 minute ride, and I think the pictures should be included in the price of the ride! The Luau was fun and exciting , good food, but again they took pictures at the beginning and we had to pay for those too! I asked what they do with all the pictures of people whom don't buy them, her response was we hang on to them for awhile then shred them if not bought. Well I have an idea! Instead of taking everyone's pics why don't you ask us if we want one in the first place or include it in the final price of the entertainment. But all was very fun and set memories with the love of my life. Thank you!!!! Love Kona

    This was absolutely awesome. The crew was very professional and made you feel at ease, explaining at all times what was happening as you submerged. On the other hand, the man who led the excursion was very, very funny in addition to being extremely knowledgeable about what we were seeing. His description of the longest and second longest fish species in Hawaii was hilarious. The seating was comfortable and the portholes were large enough to see and take photos of all the fish that swam by. I highly recommend this trip!

    The submarine tour was good. Enjoyed Tomo's patter while many chatted over it. He was a consummate gentlemen. His stats about 40 of the Great Barrier Reef damaged or destroyed by man-made global warming are highly eggerated by global warming warmist high priests. No Matter. The submarine trip was fine but the luau was impossible to find and in my car I had to use a map because my GPS and maps couldn't find itl Kailua Kona is only good for those on a tour or hand-guided group. No parking, no signage, no help, nothing!!!!!

    The submarine part was awesome!! Really a unique experience. But the luau wasn and #39;t that great, performance was ok, the guy dancing with fire is super cool, but food was terrible.
