Check out Atlantis Submarines Waikiki, the most technologically advanced passenger submarines in the world and the only true submarines operating in these waters. You’ll descend 100 feet into another version of paradise – one hidden even from the people of Hawaii for centuries.

CAtlantis Submarines Waikikiruise Ship Passengers

The Atlantis Submarine dive is available for cruise ship passengers in port in Oahu but no transportation from the pier is provided to Waikiki. We recommend that you do your submarine dive when you are in port in Kona, since the check-in there is right across the street from the cruise ship dock. Save $10 per person off the cruise ship rate and book your Kona Submarine Dive with us.
