Highlights
  • Observe the underwater world while riding a self-propelled, submersible electric scooter
  • Descend on your own scooter with attached diving helmet that allows you to breathe underwater

What's not included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off

Make your own way to Keahole Street in Honolulu to board your catamaran. On the way to the dive location, your captain steers the 50-foot (12-meter) boat past landmarks including Koko Crater and Diamond Head on Maunalua Bay. Before hopping in the water, your guide provides a safety briefing and instructions on handling the underwater scooter. When ready, small groups take turns descending into the water on the scooter, accompanied by a guide. Your guide leads you past living coral reefs, through schools of tropical fish, and sea turtles.  The submarine scooter makes it easy to go underwater and experience Hawaii's marine life up close without the hassle of donning complicated diving gear or undergoing extensive scuba training. After your turn on the scooter, use the provided snorkel gear, or take in the scenery and snack on refreshments on board the boat. Your guide shares commentary about the island's history, and points out local filming locations for TV shows and movies.  At the end of your 2-hour tour, the catamaran returns to your departure point.

This was 1 of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. I was very nervous at first after reading others reviews about the current and swimming down to get in the scuba helmet but that was short lived. The guides and divers are with you the whole time and are always checking on you to make sure you're okay. The 'swimming' thing is not a thing at all, you hold the edge of the helmet dunk down and come up in the helmet. You then start to go down under the water where it's so peaceful and amazing. The fish come right up to you and a few even nibbled on my fingers. Just enjoy the time you're in the water and take breaths as if you were sitting above the water. This is an absolutely amazing experience for all ages who are big enough to operate the scooter. They have a diver who takes pictures of you and at the end you can purchase them for $42 for mine (1) person. They also off a nonparticipant option as well for those people who don't want to do the activity but want to be with you. I'd do this activity again in a heartbeat.

It was an amazing experience! If you have a camera better take all the pictures you want to cherish the memories and you also get the option to buy their video/phots from them as well! I thank each and every one of them for all their TEAM efforts!

It was an awesome fun experience for me! Swimmers and non-swimmers can enjoy the experience equally.

A diver is with you all the time , so it's totally safe and you can just enjoy it.

Few things to notice
1. There are no restrooms/changing rooms in the boat.
2. When the scooter is submerged in water, you will have some pain in your ears. If I had known sooner, maybe I would have bought something to keep my ears closed.
3. Kids (even though) they are not going into the water will need tickets.

What fun to be on the scooter. Even my husband who normally panics if he can't touch the ground was able to enjoy once he was able to get in the scooter. I wish though they spent more time with my friend Daniel as the waves and initially getting in the scooter was not easy for him.

Great trip. Very attentive crew. Made everyone feel comfortable and safe on the submersible. No booze which we loved. Snorkeling equipment when not in sub. My husband is 82 and I am 77. We found the subs easy and fun. I could even wear my glasses so I could see. We took our grandson who spent to whole time in the water. A great family trip and worth every Penny.

Amazing! Such a cool experience, and our number 1 highlight from our trip. The staff are all super friendly and helpful, and the scooters are so much fun, I even got to get up close and personal with a turtle. Its the best fun, definitely do it!!! I do get motion sickness so had some medicine about an hour before getting on the boat and was fine, worth thinking about doing so you aren't feeding the fishes but missing the fun!

Whatever you do, don't miss this. Amazing. The team is so very accommodating making sure you have fun. You don't have to know how to swim to do this. When in the water there is someone with you all the time so no worries. We had the best time, the pictures and videos they take are perfect. I went in then my husband and during the swim they brought us both together and took more pictures and a video of us together, bought them all!!! Thank you to you all!! BTW - the use of the scooters were about 20 minutes which was more than enough time to experience the fish and fish frenzy when you feed them. The rest of the time you can scuba or just swim, they even have equipment you can use. And for us - the music selection was perfect
