Oahu Submarine Scooter Adventure

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy an exciting underwater adventure on Oahu! On this submarine scooter tour, cruise along Maunalua Bay past Diamond Head Crater and then dive under the surface while riding your own self-propelled, electric underwater scooter. Swim with colorful fish, green sea turtles and other marine life in a totally unique and fun way! Your guide will lead the way, and no experience is necessary.

This small-group tour is limited to 30 people, ensuring a more personalized experience.
  • Observe the underwater world while riding a self-propelled, submersible electric scooter
  • Descend on your own scooter with attached diving helmet that allows you to breathe underwater
  • Take turns diving on the submersible scooter and snorkeling from the boat or sunbathing on deck
  • No experience necessary for this guided tour; equipment and snacks provided
What to Expect
Make your own way to Keahole Street in Honolulu to board your catamaran. On the way to the dive location, your captain steers the 50-foot (12-meter) boat past landmarks including Koko Crater and Diamond Head on Maunalua Bay. Before hopping in the water, your guide provides a safety briefing and instructions on handling the underwater scooter. When ready, small groups take turns descending into the water on the scooter, accompanied by a guide. Your guide leads you past living coral reefs, through schools of tropical fish, and sea turtles.  The submarine scooter makes it easy to go underwater and experience Hawaii's marine life up close without the hassle of donning complicated diving gear or undergoing extensive scuba training. After your turn on the scooter, use the provided snorkel gear, or take in the scenery and snack on refreshments on board the boat. Your guide shares commentary about the island's history, and points out local filming locations for TV shows and movies.  At the end of your 2-hour tour, the catamaran returns to your departure point.

It was a very cool experience! We loved the crew but the amount of people on the tour was far too many. We were all so sea sick by the time it came our turn to go in the water, we were turning green. But...More

We booked this trip a couple days in advance and I’m so glad we did! This was super fun and amazing to see the turtles close up! Feeding the fish was fun too! The water was rough, so if you need it, take your Dramamine!...More
