A few ago, our family enjoyed a thrilling ride with Atlantis Submarines.
Yes, you can take your entire family on real submarine rides in a number of tropical settings around the world! It’s one of those opportunities that really should not be missed and definitely is a worthwhile experience for you and your family.
First, have a look at ‘ My ‘ short slide presentation. The slide show has some personal pictures of our Atlantis submarine ride. Our adventure was in beautiful Waikiki Beach Oahu Hawaii.
Name that tune as you watch the slide show!

A Brief History About Atlantis Submarines
This amazing enterprise was established in 1985 by a gentleman named Dennis Hurd, who is the president of Atlantis Submarines International. The company’s main office is located in my neck of the woods … Vancouver BC, Canada.
The Company has expanded worldwide, now offering these amazing submarine rides in some of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world!

- Cozumel Mexico
and more great places for underwater adventures!
I have included a helpful website offering more detailed information on the history, submarine specifications and much more.
Atlantis Submarines Fleet Is Larger Than the Navy
The fleet consists of ‘Eleven’ amazing submarines and have to date, carried over 12 million passengers worldwide. These subs are made for comfort, with a length of over 65 feet and carrying 48 to 64 passengers in each vessel.
The subs are designed for passenger riding only and no, you can’t go on an underwater sea adventure in search of enemy naval destroyers! You can, however, enjoy and view some spectacular sea life with your entire family, without even getting wet!
Enjoy Professional Organized Submarine Tours
I was very impressed with the complete professionalism and attention to safety displayed with the company. At all times, I felt completely safe and comfortable in the hands of the Atlantis submarine crew.
These are Coast Guard approved real submarines! Rest assured, your safety is their number one priority and it definitely shows!
Atlantis Submarine Tours Require Children To Be A Certain Height
There are a couple of restrictions that must be enforced regarding submarine rides with Atlantis, again due to their stringent safety standards.
They are …
“It is necessary for every passenger to travel down a practically all vertical 7-step ladder to gain access in and out of the submarine. There is also a minimum height restriction of 36″ for children to take a ride with Atlantis.”
It sounds more difficult than what it really is. Getting in and out is not too hard at all if you just take your time and be careful for those people who may be in their senior years, or others will slight physical hardships. Helpful staff is also there to assist with getting on and off the submarine to the transport boats.
