A nice adventure, not a wow!
Anna_D
, Aug 2022
Staff very upbeat and friendly. Good narration throughout submarine.tour. A bit disappointing that there were really so few amazing creatures and that it was non existent unless near the ship/ plane wrecks. Maybe early am better?? We went at 11am, noon when on sun. For the price I wanted to be wowed. My grand daughter has seen what we saw at the Aquarium. She got bored and she will be 6 next month, so not too young to enjoy. I also thought the time actually in the sun and the route quite short. We waited in lines longer than the experience.

Experience

Everything was very clean, staff were very friendly and helpful. Could not see color of fish or sea turtles. Snorkeling or glass bottom boat boat is by far much better experience!

Aloha Melinda! Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We're glad you enjoyed your overall experience of exploring 100 feet deep under the sea with us in one of our state-of-the-art submarines. It is true, at depths past 50 feet, a phenomenon called "color absorption" occurs. This means that fish and coral that would have bright colors near the surface take on a more dull hue, and often everything will appear blue. However, this is just a perk of getting to see the ocean at depths you wouldn't normally get to experience. We appreciate your valuable feedback and hope to welcome you on another Atlantis adventure in the future.

Trying to see the sea life. Not much to see though. Some employees were more interested in looking at their phones than helping or welcoming the guests.

Aloha Rochell! Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't as exciting as you had hoped.

Although I wasn't happy to find out that the ships and plane wings were put there like props, it was still cool to see the marine life under the sea.. The staff was completely amazing, I had 2 vision impaired yound adults with me that they went above and beyond assisting them on/off the boat and submarine..was very impressed!! Thank you

Aloha Lance! Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't as exciting as you had hoped. Naturally, Waikiki has very sparse reef environments, and over the past 100 years the natural reef has been disappearing. Atlantis has helped reverse this dissipation by introducing man-made reef developments, which have greatly increased the biomass of fish, coral and other marine life. I am happy to hear our crew went above and beyond in assisting your party. We appreciate your valuable feedback and will be sure to share it with our team. Mahalo!
