Fun, but sickening
Brittany_L, Feb 2023
This was a great adventure. The staff was friendly, the boat was clean, and the equipment was in working order. However, for some reason after 40 minutes of diving, I was very sick. I don’t get sea sick ever, but 5 people including myself were puking our guts out. We were thinking that it was unfiltered “bad air” in our tanks but there’s no way to prove that. Overall, it was a neat experience to see the sea life, but I was sick for 4 hours afterwords.

An absolutely AWESOME 2 tank dive. I have been a certified diver since my time in the Navy in the late 70's. My 17 yo son, who is not certified, was TOTALLY taken care of. 2nd tank, was just he and I and his new "Hawaiian Uncle", the dive master. A fantastic Christmas day!
Huge sea turtle
Emily_S, Dec 2022
As a first time diver I was very excited and a little nervous. Jared, Scott and Nick gave clear, calm instructions so that once I was in/under the water I was comfortable and would not panic. The experience itself was great as we got to see the biggest sea turtle ever along with lots of fish and coral. It would have been really cool to see some different sites on the second dive which is the only reason I did not give this 5 stars. However, be advised, this activity is not for everyone as several people in our party could not complete the dives for respiratory reasons and/or got seasick. Even I have a pretty strong tolerance for movement and I found myself getting very queasy on the surface of the water and this feeling took a bit to resolve. But overall this experience was awesome!
No regrets 🤙💚

This was my first time, Anna, Phil, Chad and Yoshi went above and beyond to ensure I was successful. Chad and Yoshi were kind and patient teaching me how to breathe properly. I highly recommend you give this a try!
Life changing experience
Peter_Z, Oct 2022
The instructors were absolutely brilliant, they were immersed in environmentally friendly practices and they were extremely careful with beginner divers. Initially with the constraints of the wetsuit and the weight of the scuba equipment I didn’t think I was able to do it after some careful instruction I jumped into the water into a different world and my life changed can’t think the instructors enough on they have opened my eyes.
Outstanding Staff and Value
Howard_B, Oct 2022
Many years since my last scuba and in fact I needed every inch of Scott's very patient, clear and in a word perfect teaching effort before and in the water. At first i was very 'what am i doing here?' That vanished. Your staff was super helpful with equipment fitting, boat travel and support. Highest possible rating.
Weiss_T, July 2022
Very satisfied and very helpful funny instructors we love ours trip and the weather is nice and people are great
Excellent dive master
Joanne_E, July 2022
Very professional, safe for begginers, dive master was very professional, will definitely be back! We couldn't go on our 2nd dive due to a strong current. Eventhough the trip ended early than expected, we were 100% satisfied. Thank you for the great experience.
Good for beginners
Sean, June 2022
Chad, our dive instructor was awesome. His patience with 4 beginners like us, with no SCUBA experience whatsoever, was unparalleled. He took care of us and always ensured that we received the utmost attention we needed despite some of the challenges we encountered - choppy water, goggles not fitting well, and having trouble equalizing. The rest of the staff are very welcoming and accommodating - from the time we walked in to the store, drove to the bay, did the dive, and came back to the store - which made this experience a memorable one. Thank you Waikiki Dive Center!!!
Great time friendly staff
