Atlantis Submarines departs from Lahaina Harbor. You will board a ferry to the Submarine. It’s a nice ride down the coast to Launiupoko Park. About a quarter mile out from the park is the dive site. The views during the ride are fantastic. The ferry ride to the submarine is about 10 minutes or so. When you arrive at where the tender is waiting, you’re there. At this point, the submarine surfaces with the guests from the previous dive. They disembark at this time and you’ll get onboard. Once everyone is seated, the submarine begins its dive beneath the waves on its way to see the Carthaginian shipwreck. The waters outside your window turn bubbly white as Atlantis blows its ballast. As you descend to the ocean floor, it becomes darker outside and the lights flick on. The submarine dives down over a hundred feet beneath the waves. At first, it’s kind of eerie. The floor of the ocean is silent and barren, the lights fade into darkness yards away from the sub. Then the reef begins to appear. It’s huge. The lights of Atlantis bring it to life with colors beyond description with fish darting about. The closer the submarine approaches the reef, the more exciting it becomes.
Just beyond the reef is a sunken ship. At one time, it berthed in Lahaina Harbor and was known as the Carthaginian. The Carthaginian was a replica of a whaling vessel that use to ply the waters in the whaling era of Lahaina. This is when Lahaina, Maui was the whale capital of the world. Sailors from the east coast of America and Europe used to hunt the Humpback during the winter months. The State of Hawaii and Atlantis teamed up and sunk the ship to create an artificial reef. When you look at the ship, it’s amazing that after they sunk it, it ended up upright on the ocean floor. The Carthaginian is the highlight of the dive. There are some big fish that inhabit the ship today. Barnacles have formed on the sides, decks, and masks.
