Go Beyond Snorkeling—No Experience Necessary!
Two shallow Hawaii reef dives from our scuba friendly boat. Only $149!
Our Discover Hawaii scuba diving experience is a half-day charter with two shallow (max 35 feet) introductory boat dives at two different reef sites. No classroom tests or studying is required. All you need to know we will show you on the boat before you enter the water. In addition, all the rental gear you need is included in the $149 price!
Discover Scuba Diving in Oahu is designed to allow anyone to experience scuba diving for the very first time. In the warm clear ocean off Waikiki Honolulu, under the direct supervision of the Big Kahuna, a PADI certified Instructor, you'll get to experience the thrill of easily breathing underwater!
How It Works
First, reserve your spot today as space is limited on our boats! Second, prepare for fun! Bring a towel, sunscreen, swimsuit and snacks/water. Everything else you will need is already on the boat. The boat leaves the dock promptly at 9am. On the 20 min ride out to the dives sites, you will be briefed on what to expect and the few simple skills you'll need to know to dive safely, such as mask clearing, how to equalize your ears to the water pressure, regulator usage, clearing and recovery, proper fin kicking and basic hand signals.
At the dive site, the boat is moored in place. A wide stable platform is then dropped to provide an easy way on and off the boat. Guidelines descend for twenty feet below the platform, providing divers something to hang on to while the Instructor takes each person through the basic skills before they descend all the way to the reef below.
With only four divers per instructor ratio, you're assured of safety and personalized attention. Our Big Kahuna has been teaching and leading Oahu scuba divers for 17 years! He still loves watching the faces of young and old light up at their first experience of the amazing world beneath the waves.
Our Discover Oahu scuba diving experience encourages scuba diving exploration for first timers and beginners new to the ocean to satisfy their curiosity about Waikiki scuba diving in a way that is supremely safe and enjoyable.
Honolulu Scuba Diving for Beginners - First Time Scuba Diving in Waikiki, Hawaii
Our Discover Hawaii scuba diving program is for people who have a limited amount of time and want to maximize their Hawaii holiday vacation. If you fall in love with scuba diving in Oahu, the skills and experience you gain can be applied toward the PADI Open Water Diver scuba certification, also offered by Aloha Scuba Diving of Oahu. The introductory Discover scuba dive program is designed to allow people to experience scuba diving and to see if becoming a PADI certified scuba diver (valid world wide) is their next step in a whole new adventure.
The Discover Oahu scuba diving program easily and safely introduces people into the Hawaii open water ocean environment. As the boat leaves the marina, heading for the first dive site, your PADI certified Instructor will cover the basic knowledge and skills that first time divers need to know to safely enjoy their underwater adventure. All beginners will scuba dive in small groups of no more than four divers at a time, per Instructor, at two of our amazing scuba diving sites here in Oahu. The PADI Discover scuba diving program is a natural first step to a Hawaii PADI certification, open water diver course. Those who have completed the Discover Scuba Diving experience earn credit toward their Confined Water Dive One and Open Water Dive One. This is possible because the PADI confined water dive one is the same as the discover Hawaii scuba diving water skills introduction and development session, furthermore the Discover Hawaii scuba Diving dive equals the PADI Open Water Dive One.
