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. 

Once we arrive at the dive site, the boat is moored in place. A wide platform on the side of the boat is then lowered to provide an easy way on and off the boat. Guidelines descend for twenty feet below the platform, providing you something to hang on to while the Instructor takes each person through the basic skills before descending 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.
