Atlantis Submarines Waikiki – Take Your Keiki for FREE in September

The month of September is the perfect time to take your keiki to experience the magical underwater adventure of Atlantis Submarines. With every paid Kama’aina ticket purchased you can get a FREE child ticket (12 years and younger)! I don’t know about you guys but with 3 kids of my own I wouldn’t pass up this deal!

I had the opportunity to check out Atlantis Submarines for myself recently and brought Kiana (12 years old) along with me. Atlantis Submarines is located at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and parking is $10 for 3 hours if you get your ticket validated at the Atlantis Submarine check-in desk.

Once you check-in for your reservation you are directed to the dock where you’ll get your boarding passes as well as a family photo taken with the famous Waikiki Beach & Diamond Head views in the background. These photos will be available for purchase towards the end of the excursion.

 

 

You then board a ship that will take you out to your submarine.

This ship comes equipped with everything you need . . . restrooms, snack bar and gift shop, an upper deck where you can experience an open-aired environment and a lower enclosed air conditioned area. I was really surprised at how comfortable the accommodations were and how much room was available for everyone.

 

When you reach the submarine staging area you are treated to a viewing of the submarine actually rising out of the water. That was a really cool sight to see. The ship then pulls up next to the submarine and everyone is transferred over.

Once inside the submarine you take seat . . . each one with a porthole view. There are headphones adjacent to every porthole which provides a guided tour in various international languages. Now, I’m somewhat claustrophobic so I wasn’t really sure what to expect but the inside of the submarine was very roomy and super air conditioned (which I LOVED).

The underwater tour lasted about 45 minutes and we were able to view various creatures like manta ray, sea turtles, huge starfish, lots and lots of fish . . . and even a shark! What I thought was really cool is the way Atlantis Submarines staged actual sunken ships, aircrafts and other structures which provided dramatic backgrounds to an amazing underwater world. I really appreciated the guide giving us a heads up if he saw something interesting coming up. I also liked that once they made a pass through an area they turned the submarine around and made another pass so that both port and starboard sides saw the same things.

 

Kiana really enjoyed interacting with the Atlantis Submarine app which she downloaded prior to going out on the boat and she was able to check off some of the various creatures that she came across . . . learning more about each one along the way,

 

Our day with Atlantis Submarines was one of the most enjoyable things we’ve done in a long time. Now all my kids want to go. So if you’ve ever wanted to check out Atlantis Submarines now is the time to do it! You have until the end of September to take advantage of this amazing offer. Make your reservations now.
