Alex our dive master was awesome - his pre-dive briefings were detailed and made the actual dive so much more informative. The Yo-257 and San Pedro wreck dive was one of the best I have done. I highly recommend this dive outfit and the location.

I had a little pool experience, but the instructor was very thorough, knowledgeable and patient. Made sure I was going to have an enjoyable, safe experience. Saw turtles, eels and sharks. Would definitely do it again!

I enjoyed my first snorkeling experience with livingocean and would dive with them again if I came back to Hawaii. Instructor had good sense of humor and was very instructive but chill.

We went scuba diving for the 1st time at Hanauma Bay with Nate and it was amazing! We will definitely book again when we return. Nate was very cool and made us feel safe and at ease.

After reading several reviews thought this was spot on for sure with these guys but not even close! Too many groups on the boat and not enough time for the essentials. We all felt highly disappointed on this choice!More
