Every day I see Atlantis trolleys ferrying passengers from Waikiki Hotels for a submarine tour. They always seem crowded, especially with Japanese tourists. Many mornings I see their support boats towing their submarines from Honolulu out to their diving location. Many evenings near sunset I see the same boats towing the submarines back for nightly maintenance and battery charging.
Aside from those observations, however, I really knew very little about the actual Atlantis experience, so I was excited to see what this was all about. I knew that Atlantis had submarines on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island, but I didn't know that they actually own 13 submarines at 9 separate submarine sites around the world, including such locations as Aruba, Barbados, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Guam and St. Thomas. I never realized that they also own the Navatek I that sails from the Aloha Tower Marketplace for dinner and whale watch cruises. I didn't know that they manage the popular Sea Life Park on Oahu's southeastern shore.
In Hawaii alone, Atlantis Adventures entertains approximately 680,000 guests annually. To date over 4 million guests have experienced an Atlantis Adventure.
