CAtlantis Submarine Konaruise Ship Passengers

The Atlantis Submarine dive is available for cruise ship passengers in port in Kona for either the 11:30am or 1:00pm dive times. Check-in is conveniently located right across the street from the cruise ship dock. The cruise lines take all available places at the 10:00am and 2:30pm dive times and they charge $10 more per person (presumably their $10 mark-up is to pay one of their employees to stand at the dock and point at the Atlantis Office and say “Walk over there.”) Save $10pp and book your submarine tour with us; it is the exact same dive!

 

Combination packages are not available for cruise ship passengers; just the submarine tour itself.
