Getting wet whilst on vacation in Hawaii was very high on my list of things to do. Weather dictated what was achievable so after a start delayed by a late guest we got on board for a two tank dive trip.

I chose not to use a stronger word than "nice" because 1) this is the first dive company I have used in 20 years so I dont have a lot to compare it to, and 2) it wasn't wild and crazy... it was just a very nice day. The captain, guides and shop keepers were nice and professional. Everything went... More

Everything from booking to the actual dive was flawless and enjoyable. I booked the "Padi Discover Scuba Diving Course - Two Day Option" for myself and my son, as we have absolutely no diving experience. This is not a certification dive, only an introduction. For those of you who are not 100% sure that diving is for them, I would... More
