Going under Water in a Submarine in Hawaii

Going under Water in a Submarine in Hawaii

Although the majority of the world’s submarines are military, there are some submarines, which are used for tourism. However, there are not many locations in this world where you can explore the underground ocean wildlife in a submarine, but Hawaii is one of the best spots. Being in a submarine in Hawaii and descending to 100 feet underwater is an adventure in itself. You will also get to see real Hawaii marine life up close.

The Atlantis Submarine departs from Waikiki on Oahu, Lahaina on Maui and Kona on the Big Island. Enjoy a breathtaking ride beneath the ocean and descend to a depth of 100 feet (about 30 meters) where you will see marine life such as tropical fish, turtles, manta rays and if you are lucky even sharks or dolphins. During the winter months, there’s also a chance of spotting whales.

Children must be 36 inches (90cm) tall and you must be able to climb a seven-step ladder. The tour lasts for an hour and forty minutes.

Who invented the submarine?

The first submarine was built in 1620 by Dutch engineer Cornelis Drebbel while he was working for the English Royal Navy. During the next four years Drebbel successfully built two more submarines. The final and third model could carry 16 passengers and could stay submerged for three hours at a depth between 12 and 15 feet (4 to 5 meters). 

Since then, only one man has gone to the Earth’s deepest part of the ocean (about 36,000 feet deep), an area called the Challenger Deep, which lies about 200 miles (322 kilometers) southwest of the U.S. territory of Guam.

Movies and submarines in Hawaii

The man who dove this deep in a submarine is James Cameron,  director of the two most commercially successful films in film history: “Titanic” and “Avatar” He is one of the most selling movies as of today. The Oscar winner has already done several dives, including those to the wreckage of the Titanic. During his dives, Cameron collects samples for biologists and geologists to further explore the marine life.

Submarines during war

Submarine inventor Drebbel never used his submarines for combat. However, during World War I (1914–1918) and World War II (1939-1945) submarines were mainly build for military purposes to sink battleships and for protecting and attacking other submarines. One of the submarines used in WWII is located at Pearl Harbor. The USS Bowfin was used during WWII. Interested in exploring this submarine in Hawaii? Come on Pearl Harbor Tour with Daniels Hawaii.
