The Maui Atlantis Submarine tour begins in Lahaina Harbor, where a 15-minute, open air cruise brings you out to the dive site and sub. Transfer aboard the state of the art, air conditioned submarine, for a 45-minute aquatic experience in search of wild marine life.

In 2005, an old whaling ship, the Carthaginian, was scuttled off of Lahaina, and today serves as an artificial reef for colorful coral and fish. Prior to its scuttling in 2005, this area was simply a sandy bottom with very little marine life, and today it houses indigenous fish and a vibrant coral reef.

In winter, from December-May, there’s even the chance of spotting whales on the journey out to the sub, and you never know if one might pay a visit while underwater!

Very interesting

This was a great experience. We saw so many different fish and marine life. The ship they sunk has become a home to many different kinds of interesting things to see. We even saw dauphins when we were leaving the sub.

Wonderful experience in Submarine

Well worth the money. Sub dives on a reef with a wreck put there for fish. We saw Ray's, White tipped shark and many fish. Seating is tight with no backrest, which is ok as you lean forward to see out portholes. Went down to...More

Surprisingly fun

We generally think of ourselves as not "touristy, tourists" and snorkel and dive on our own. But my 88 year old mother was with us and can't snorkel - but wanted to see the fish. The whole family family went on this trip -12 years...More

This was one of the few things that we hadn't done in Maui. It was amazing. We saw sharks, spotted rays and lots of fish. The narriation was informative and funny. It was definately an adventure not to be missed.
