Amazing trip with DiveOahu
Michael_Z, Sept 2022
Fantastic 2 tank dive. Our captain was great and shared the ring of fire island history with us. Both dive guides, Hannah & Alexandria, did a fantastic job! I saw so many different species of fish, eel, octopus, and near the end of our dive we were visited by 4 dolphins. Magical experience. Also, best rental gear on any island I’ve ever used. All new Scubapro gear! Can’t wait to come back.
Awesome dive

Awesome Dive
Mike_W, Mar 2022
My son and I are beginner-certified divers and this was perfect for us. Tad, our guide, and the other Dive Oahu staff were patient, friendly, and helped me and my son have a blast. Mahalo, Dive Oahu!
Great shallow dive (about 35 feet) for certified divers!
Michael_W, Mar 2022
Tad was a great guide. He spotted some excellent wildlife for us. We’re doing the same dive again later in the week. 😎

Colorful fish and the equipment was top notch. Crew was knowledgeable and friendly. Great dives for beginners!
Excellent experience.
ArmandW, Sept 2021
The entire staff was 100% on mark. Friendly, helpful, and allowed us certified divers to decide just how much we want to be guided by the dive master. I highly recommend.
Jake is an awesome guide!
Kacy_R, June 2021
My tour/dive guide, Jake was really awesome, very competent and dependable. Communication under water was easy and he even taught me some new things! We saw two turtles, a white tip shark, and a few trumpet fish and eels. The water temp was great as was the air temp even when the boat got moving it wasn’t chilly and the boat ride out was short. All the staff on the boat are helpful and friendly and provided snacks and drinks.
Great for new divers
Joanie, May 2021
This was my first dive in the ocean. I’m certified but only dives have been in lake. I was with Kyle and had some anxiety. He was super patient with me and I ended up having a great time! Thanks, Kyle!
First certified dive in a while
Lauren_K, Apr 2021
Great crew and great experience. I had not been diving in 3 years so did a quick check from the dive line. The dive felt great and Lauren, the dive master, was awesome. As always there is a variety of experience on a group dive and those fellow divers will shape the experience. My group liked being a little close but I enjoyed them all. I thought about doing the deep dive, but decided to ease back in. After this one I signed up for the wreck dive late in the week.
Angela_P, Apr 2021
Great two dives lots of turtles! Lauren was a great boat captain And dive master. A definite do over when I’m in Hawaii again!
