The Atlantis Submarine Tours on Oahu Island begin at the Port Hilton Dock in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort in Waikiki. tours last about ? minutes and they offer views of a sunken aircraft, sunken ships, and an artificial reef created by Atlantis Adventures from depths of up to 100 feet below the surface of the ocean.

The Oahu Atlantis submarine tours operate in an area about 1 nautical mile off Waikiki Beach, on the Diamond Head side of Kaiser Channel.

The Passenger Vessel Discovery shuttles tour participants between the Port Hilton Dock and the dive site.

Three tug boats, the Huki Nui, the Palaoa, and the Nani tow the submarines to the dive site at about 6:00 a.m. and they are towed back to Pier 40 sometime between noon and 7:00 p.m. Those boats also operate as surface safety, lookout, and communications vessles for the submarines while they are underwater and while they are descending and surfacing.

Premium Waikiki Submarine Tour
The premium Atlantis submarine tour off Waikiki Beach is on the 64-passenger, 100 foot long Atlantis XIV Submarine. This larger submarine has more personal space for each passenger, larger viewing windows, and an individual seat for each passenger. The full price of the premium submarine tour are just over $100 for adults and just over $50 for children but discount tickets are available on the Atlantis Hawaii Web site.

Regular Waikiki Submarine Tour
The standard Waikiki submarine tour off the caost of Waikiki is on the 48-passenger Atlantis VII submarine. Note that the regular submarine tour has bench style seating. The price of the premium submarine tour is about $90 for adults and about $45 for children but discount tickets are available on the Atlantis Hawaii Web site.

In addition to the discounted prices available on the Atlantis Submarine Web site, many of Oahu's free visitor magazines offer discount Atlantis Submarine tickets.

Important Information - Please Note:
Atlantis submarine tour participants must be at least 36 inches tall and they must be able to climb descend a 7-step, vertical ladder into and out of the body of the submarine.

Check-in is at the Atlantis Submarines ticket office on the beachside of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort, on the left side of the swimming pool if you are facing the ocean. Tour participants are required to check-in 30 minutes before the scheduled tour departure time.

Guests are transported to the submarine from the Port Hilton Dock on a shuttle boat. Expect the entire Waikiki submarine tour experience to last about 1.5 hours including the shuttle cruise to and from the submarine, entering and disembarking from the submarine, and the submarine tour itself.

The tours depart three or four times a day. Tour Narration is in English but headsets are available for Japanese language tours.
In addition to their submarine tours, Atlantis of Oahu also offers several two-activity packages that add activities such as dinner cruises to their submarine tour.
