West Oahu Introductory One-Tank Scuba Diving (from Waikiki)

Excellent Scuba Instruction

Reviewed by: Marisa, 2014/07/29

I was picked up very timely by the driver and she was pleasant to talk to on the long ride. I was a little concerned about the text and drive thing, but otherwise we got from point A to point B just fine. There was a good mix of both certified and newbie divers like myself and was glad that I was given good advice to keep from getting too nervous. Hawaii Nautical is great at teaching the skills needed for scuba diving. However, I was not prepared for the skills based training that I would receive. We went over the basics and our instructor was good about making sure that we understood the benefits and risks of scuba diving as well as how enjoyable it can be when you are doing all of the necessary steps to be safe. Everyone was as accommodating as possible considering it was a very full boat. While I enjoyed the learning aspect of the scuba dive, I would recommend this more for people genuinely interested in becoming a certified scuba diver, rather than the casual tourist experience.

Great fun

Everyone aboard the boat made the dive experience better, and Brian guided us to see the wreck and reef in a fun, exciting way. I would be happy to dive with them again.

First Wreck Dive!

Reviewed by: Mr. Anonymous, 2012/10/23

I have been a certified scuba diver for a little more than a year, and I finally got to do my first wreck dive last weekend! Went out with Captain Lonnie & Dave as our dive lead, and they were absolutely fantastic!

The first dive, to the Mahi wreck, was really cool, and saw an eel, lots of fish & an eagle ray. Swimming around something that was sunk underwater and had coral growing off of it was surreal, and an incredibly unique experience that I'm glad to say I've checked off my bucket list.

The second dive was a shallow-ish reef dive where we saw a few huge turtles, eels, and did a really cool swim through. This is definitely one of the best diving options on the island and I recommend them to any and all certified or intro divers who wish to experience life under the sea!

Amazing

Reviewed by: Alexander, 2011/08/11

I have never been scuba diving before and it was totally amazing. would recommend this for anyone looking for an intro dive. The instructors were very friendly, informative and extremely patient. I am now totally hooked on scuba and investigating how to become certified. What a wonderful experience that everyone should at least try once to see if its your thing!
