Divers And Submarines Passenger Zip
NCL cruise ship passengers are able do the Atlantis Submarines on the afternoon of the first day or the morning of the second day in port in Kahului. The drive to Lahaina takes an hour and we can arrange a rental car with shuttle pick-up at the harbor. The Maui Value Pass is also possible, but you should do the submarine on the first day so you have time to do the other events on day 2.
Lahaina cruise ship passengers can do Atlantis Submarines since it departs from the same harbor in Lahaina where your cruise ship tender arrives. We don't recommend the Maui Value Pass for Lahaina cruise ship passengers because all the other included events are in central Maui and require a drive of 45+ minutes.
NCL cruise ship passengers are able do the Reefdancer on the afternoon of the first day or the morning of the second day in port in Kahului. The drive to Lahaina takes an hour and we can arrange a rental car with shuttle pick-up at the harbor.
The two vessels on this page serve a very different purpose. Atlantis Submarines is a TRUE submarine in every sense of the word. It is a pressurized submarine that descends to a depth of about 100 feet and explores reef and a shipwreck lying on the bottom. It is a remarkable experience to descend to that depth and it gives you a "Jacques Cousteau-like" adventure. There are access issues for the submarine. Children shorter than 36" are not permitted because they aren't tall enough to negotiate the rungs of the nearly vertical ladder on the way down into the sub. And this is not an excursion for those who are mobility-impared in any way. Because of this ladder all guests must be physically capable of descending independently into the passenger compartment. Oh one cool tip for video ... wear a red shirt on the sub, and while you are descending and ascending point the video camera at yourself. The color red just disappears as the sub descends into the blue and it is fun to watch this color change happen when you play back your video.
Atlantis Submarine is the only TRUE submarine operating on Maui. You ride a shuttle boat out to the dive sight. There's a vertical ladder to descend, which means this isn't accessible for anyone with mobility issues and the minimum height for kids is 36". Once you get inside though it's a different world 130 feet down! The highlight is views of the Carthaginian, a sunken replica whaling ship that now attracts a host of marine life. For those who want an underwater experience but have kids too small to do the true submarine ... or grandma can't go down the ladder ... then consider the Reefdancer. It FEELS like a submarine, and while the entire vessel doesn't submerge, the downstairs viewing compartment sits completely below the water level and you look out the window at the reef and a variety of fish. There are scuba divers in the water who find octupus and urchins and bring them up to the windows for close up inspection.
Sea Trek is suitable for all ages and it is as easy as taking a walk! Come explore, like helmet divers of the past, the sea bed, and the diverse sea life of Puerto Rico. Helmet Diving is an easy activity that introduces you to the incredible underwater world of San Juan.
The Submarine Voyage was an attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The attraction features vehicles designed to resemble submarines. It first opened on June 14, 1959, as one of the first rides to require an E ticket. It was part of a major expansion of Tomorrowland, which included the Matterhorn Bobsleds roller coaster, an expanded version of Autopia, the Disneyland Monorail, and the Motor Boat Cruise. The Submarine Voyage closed on September 9, 1998; at that time, it was reported that the attraction would reopen with a new theme by 2003, but that did not occur. The attraction ultimately reopened in June 2007 themed to Disney and Pixar's Finding Nemo, and now operates as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.
After a quiet cruise through the lagoon, the navigation room receives word of a surface storm ahead. The submarine begins a dive, which takes it to 250 feet, a point safely below the violence of the turbulent hurricane. The submarine passes through the wreckage of other ships that have not fared so well. Ships from many periods of history lie barnacle-covered and decayed, including Greek, Roman, and Viking ships. Sharks guards a treasure chest in the hold of a Venetian galley. Nearby, deep-sea divers work to carry other treasures to the surface.
The vessels are not actual submarines as they do not submerge, but are in fact boats, where inside the 38-passenger (now 40-passenger) seating area was positioned below the water level. Portholes along the sides allowed guests to view the many underwater sights. Above the seating area was the conning tower, where the operator stood and controlled the sub's speed. The "diving" effect was made by bubble screens and using the waterfalls at the entrance to the caves that led the submarines into the cleverly disguised show building. The bubble jets can be seen from outside if one were to look just past the loading dock. In case of a broken porthole, a cushion in the conning tower could be used to plug the hole until the repair crew arrived. Atop of the show building are the majority of the Autopia tracks, some monorail tracks, trees and the currently derelict Rocket Rods/PeopleMover track.
The lagoon that houses the ride requires nine million US gallons (34,000 m3) of water to fill. It is difficult to maintain, since divers had to be sent underwater every night to clean up debris and fix the audio-animatronics whenever they broke down.
The West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta used to have an indoor submarine that operated into 2005, though they were not removed until 2012. The submarines were the world's first recreational submarines, and were fully deep-sea tested before delivery.
Roatan forms part of the Meso American Barrier reef which stretches from Yucatan, Mexico to the Honduran Bay Islands. It is the second largest barrier reef in the world. Roatan has some of the most stunning underwater vistas you will find in the world, deep and shallow reef types with colorful corals, sponges and abundant tropical marine life, especially in the Roatan Marine Park area. The island is surrounded by coral reef and crystal clear waters, making it an ideal destination for divers. Most divers come to dive in Westend, because it is inexpensive and some of the best dive sites are only a 5 - 20 minutes boat ride away. There are many dive shops all around the island close to famous dive sites such as Mary's Place, Barbaretta Banks, Morat Wall and Dolphin Grave Yard. Dive Safaris can take you to remote dive sites not many people even know about. We can also help you arrange dive safaris to the Pigeon Cays, Guanaja or the sea mount off Cayos Cochinos.
Explore underwater views generally reserved for scuba divers from our glass bottom boat. In addition, you will have the opportunity to see the second largest reef on the planet, and you will enjoy distinct species of fish that complete the colourful seascape. The glass bottom boat tours are suitable for peoples of all ages and nationalities. Kids and non-swimmers will enjoy this tour completely in a safe way. Snorkellers and divers will benefit from what they will see on their own. IMPORTANT: Passengers traveling on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines ships must purchase the Semi Sub Glass Bottom Boat Tour on board. The tour is available for cruise passengers from other cruise lines and guests of hotels and resorts.

There are no direct flights to Lanai from the continental United States; the small Lanai Airport is served by inter-island planes. Located just nine miles from the island of Maui, the Expeditions passenger ferry offers daily service from Maui's Lahaina Harbor to Lanai's Manele Harbor. The scenic trip across the Auau Channel takes about an hour.
But I've come for San Diego's collection of sunken vessels and artificial reefs less than two miles off Mission Beach. The Yukon is the big mama in the 512-acre San Diego Underwater Recreation Area, better known to local divers as Wreck Alley.
A day before her intended intentional sink date in July 2000, rough seas plunged the Yukon 102 feet to the bottom, on her port side. Numerous entry and exit holes were cut into her sides, and penetration is permitted for divers with proper training. The captain of our dive boat Humboldt gives a simple warning in his briefing: Stick with your buddy, and if you can't see through to the other side of an area, do not enter. So we treat the Yukon with the respect she deserves--especially when visibility on this afternoon is, as it is on many days, just 15 feet max.
Planning for dive-related travel should take into account chronic health conditions, any recent changes in health (including pregnancy, injuries, and surgeries), and medication use. Underlying respiratory conditions, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or a history of spontaneous pneumothorax, can challenge the breathing capacity required of divers. Mental health disorders (such as anxiety, claustrophobia, or substance abuse) and disorders affecting central nervous system higher function and consciousness (such as seizures) raise special concerns about diving fitness. Although medications should be reviewed for their compatibility with diving, it is usually the underlying condition for which the medication is taken that is of concern.
