I booked with Waikiki Dive several weeks before our trip to Honolulu. With a group of 7, it was important to have a company that would cater for all of our needs. I booked in for... read more

Booked online a couple of weeks before for 2 dives a day for 3 days. Dive masters were Liz, Red and Erica. These guys are good. Dive went to plan, saw some great stuff (wrecks, planes, turtles and octopuses). Will dive with them next time I am here. Pickup was on time, no dramas.

Took a little while to actually get out onto the water and in it for the divers - but mostly because there was a large family that took a bit to get ready. Two of us were snorkelling and although the sites weren't amazing for snorkelling, the captain took us to a turtle area the second time which was absolutely... More

I was fortunate to be able to visit Oahu and go on two dive trips. Capt Steve, Erica and Liz were all excellent; very professional and enthusiastic. They treated the dive group with respect and understood our abilities. They didn't hold our hands or make us feel that we weren't capable. They did make sure that we were comfortable, they... More

The dive shop is your typical dive shop but they have a nice boat and a great crew. We did two morning dives with Erica. She was great. She warned us there was a little current which was a little strong but manageable on our first deep wreck dive. Erica knew where a lot of animals hang out on the... More

I was stuck in Honolulu for an extra day due to a delayed flight and so glad I book the morning 2 dive trip with Waikiki Dive Centre Communication and booking process was really easy. They picked up from hotel on time. The shop was really friendly and organised - and the rental equipment of a high quality. The boat... More

Well, for those who read my dive shop reviews, you know I present the positive and the negative equally. The booking experience was easy and the person on the phone was friendly and answered all my questions. Did a morning two tank dive. Had my own mask/fins/reg/computer. Rented tank, BCD, and wet suit. As other reviews have noted, when you... More

The company was responsive and picked us up at the hotel on time. The boat captain had a level head and was great. The instructors were awesome. The equipment was great. This was our first dive and I would go with this company again. The girl that answered the phone was so nice. I highly recommend the company. I suggest... More

Group of Australian friends booked this crew because we had a mix of snorkellers, first try scuba divers and certified divers. After waiting almost two hours for a pick up (even with three or four phone calls) we got to the shop (would have been quicker to walk). All seemed a bit disorganised, but they got our gear ready, then... More

We bought the 2tank deal. It worthed the money for sure, specially for the first dive (Sea Tiger). The second dive was pretty average in a random shallow area around the Horseshoe Bay The first dive was at the Sea Tiger wreck. very fun and relatively easy deep dive even for the recent openwater divers. **If you hate being cold...
