Overview

Combine two amazing Big Island experiences with this submarine adventure and snorkel cruise in Kona. On your submarine tour, discover Hawaii's tropical underwater world from a unique perspective and admire magnificent coral reefs. Afterward, hop on a boat and cruise out on the open waters. Spot dolphins with the help of your guide and hop in the water for some snorkeling!

Know More about this tour

Meet at the Big Island's Kailua-Kona Pier and board the 48-passenger Atlantis -- featured in National Geographic television specials! -- to begin your submarine portion of your tour.

As you explore Hawaii's tropical underwater world, you'll learn how the Big Island got its start 18,000 years ago -- when lava flowed into the ocean and created one of the most magnificent coral reefs found anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands.

During your unforgettable 35-minute journey, spot colorful fish of all sizes teeming around a huge coral reef.

After your submarine experience, you'll board a different boat for a relaxing cruise. Your onboard guide will help you spot dolphins along the way. Hop in the water for some fun snorkeling to get up close to friendly sea creatures.

Please note: This tour is seasonal and operates from April to mid-December, subject to the whale migration schedule. See Additional Info for details on how to book these two tours.

    Don't be fooled by the title, you will not swim with dolphins on this trip. We saw 2 different pods though, and even a couple of whales. The snorkeling is in a bay and still worth doing (though NOT for the seasick!) as you see coral and tropical fish, the sub was fun and informative.
