Atlantis Submarine Adventure - Waikiki Beach, Oahu, Hawaii
Atlantis submarines is a passenger submarine company operating 12 submarines and undersea tours in Grand Cayman, Barbados, Aruba, Guam, St. Thomas, Cozumel and in Hawaii at Kona, Maui and Oahu.
The Atlantis XIV, which sails from Waikiki Beach, Hawaii, accommodates 64 passengers and is the world’s largest passenger submarine.
Atlantis has taken many actions to help restore the marine environment in Waikiki. One of the most prominent efforts is the artificial reef development program which attempts to increase biomass of fish, coral and other marine life. The man-made reef at Waikiki consists of two sunken ships, two sunken airplanes and several other reef structures designed in collaboration with the University of Hawaii. The company claims that its environmental initiatives have already helped reverse the situation of declining fish stocks in Waikiki.
