The submarine is a great way to see the fish and not get wet. The beach near the pier is also good for swimming. Kona is very laid back without all the high rise buildings. One long street full of souvenir shops and eating places. We stayed at Kona Resort and enjoyed the Luau. We got to meet the entertainers after the show and had our photos taken with them. The food, entertainment, open bar was exceptional. I am a vegetarian and there was food for me to eat too. I highly recommend this tour and the Kona Resort is also a great place to stay. There is a lot to see and do on the Big Island.
What an exciting day! Greeted by amazing people, they took our picture before we got on the boat to get to the Submarine. While in the Sub we saw 2 shipwrecks with great stories of how they became at the bottom of the sea. Saw a lot of fish and a shark! 1 of population has been in a Subarine, so advise to try this if you can. The only part I thought was weird is they take your pic at the beginning and then at the end you are charged for it. Well we paid like 350.00 for a 45 minute ride, and I think the pictures should be included in the price of the ride! The Luau was fun and exciting , good food, but again they took pictures at the beginning and we had to pay for those too! I asked what they do with all the pictures of people whom don't buy them, her response was we hang on to them for awhile then shred them if not bought. Well I have an idea! Instead of taking everyone's pics why don't you ask us if we want one in the first place or include it in the final price of the entertainment. But all was very fun and set memories with the love of my life. Thank you!!!! Love Kona
This was absolutely awesome. The crew was very professional and made you feel at ease, explaining at all times what was happening as you submerged. On the other hand, the man who led the excursion was very, very funny in addition to being extremely knowledgeable about what we were seeing. His description of the longest and second longest fish species in Hawaii was hilarious. The seating was comfortable and the portholes were large enough to see and take photos of all the fish that swam by. I highly recommend this trip!
The submarine tour was good. Enjoyed Tomo's patter while many chatted over it. He was a consummate gentlemen. His stats about 40 of the Great Barrier Reef damaged or destroyed by man-made global warming are highly eggerated by global warming warmist high priests. No Matter. The submarine trip was fine but the luau was impossible to find and in my car I had to use a map because my GPS and maps couldn't find itl Kailua Kona is only good for those on a tour or hand-guided group. No parking, no signage, no help, nothing!!!!!
