Atlantis Submarines, located at the Kona Pier on the Big Island is a different and fun adventure. After being transported out to the sub by boat, you climb down the ladder into the seating area of the submarine. You can watch the depth change on a digital readout as the sub slowly dives to the final depth of 110 feet which sets the sub on the bottom. On the way down, you can view various fish as each seat has a porthole for viewing. There are two shipwrecks that you can see...one of them clearly has a contrived addition to it! It is important to remember that the deeper the sub goes, the less visibility there is due to lack of sunlight, so all your pictures will not have that brilliant color you see on scuba diving tv shows. Nevertheless, it is definitely a departure from the ordinary boat ride.
