    Stop: 2 hours -
    Meet your friendly guide at 377 Keahole Street in Honolulu on Oahu at your selected departure time. Board a 50-foot (12-meter) power catamaran boat and enjoy views of Diamond Head Crater, the Koolau mountain range and Koko Crater as you cruise the picturesque waters of Maunalua Bay. When you reach your crystal-clear dive location, your guide will brief you on what to expect during your underwater adventure and explain how to use your self-propelled, electric submarine scooter -- a fun, unique, eco-friendly way to explore these Hawaiian waters. Then, follow your guide under water and effortlessly glide past beautiful tropical reefs, admiring views of colorful fish, green sea turtles and other marine life along the way. After your scooter tour, you can also snorkel, swim and relax on the boat’s shaded deck. You’ll also cruise past celebrity homes and see filming locations of the hit TV show Hawaii Five-O. Learn about the history of the area from your guide and enjoy snacks and drinks on board. At the end of your 2-hour tour, you have the option to purchase professional photos or a video of your activity to remember this Oahu experience forever!

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
  • Take turns diving on the submersible scooter and snorkeling from the boat or sunbathing on deck
  • No experience necessary for this guided tour; equipment and snacks provided
What to Expect
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.

At first glance, we wondered whether the subs would be worth the cost, but the reviews pushed us over the edge, and I'm glad they did. It was one of the most fun, unique experiences we've ever had. We highly recommend it. Neither one of us are great swimmers or snorkelers, so
