Not a fan of this guide
, Dec 2020
Overall wouldn't recommend. The instructor (Ken) was putting his mouth on a mouth piece to show us how to work it for the first hour of the trip and then gave that gear setup for me to use. Then when attaching the gear he dropped the pressure gauge directly on me in my groin area and walked away. A very good part of the beginning portion was his word to "make things right and give your money back to part ways to do the right thing". Knowing this and how I didnt want to ruin anyone else's fun I then told him as soon as I started hyperventilating from the air tube that I was not having a fun time and wanted to get out of the water. He refused and told me to try again. I then repeated I didn't want to keep going and he told me again that I needed to try again. It doesn't surprise me that people have panic attacks under the water and pull off their breathing tube and swim up too fast ending up in the hospital. I requested a refund and was denied. I have been skydiving and that was easy compared to this. If you want a better tour then book it with someone else. Tons of options in hawaii. Not my ideal way to spend my honeymoon 2 days after getting married.
Fantastic Experience
, Feb 2020
We had no experience scuba diving and it definitely seemed a bit scary. The guide was extremely thorough and made us feed very calm and very safe. We did a ton of things during our trip to Hawaii, but beginner scuba was the one we talk about the most. Fantastic experience.

Great time!

Wonderful way to see the sea life below the surface of the ocean! We felt safe the whole time. Great time!
Incredible first scuba experience!
, Feb 2020
I had an incredible time! They prepare you for the moments that are going to be tough, i.e. your first journey down the rope into the water, so when I hit that first moment of "can I do this?" I was prepared to face down that little voice in my head and experience everything. We saw turtles, eels, reef sharks, tons of fish, and he even found us an octopus! I loved that it was a small group too. I really felt like someone had my back the whole time. I would absolutely recommend this to everyone - a fantastic experience all around.

My favorite experience ever! They were super professional, but also laid back. They informed us of the risks thoroughly and made sure we were comfortable. Being inches from marine life is a life changing experience. We saw 5 turtles! My girlfriend said this experience made the whole trip.
Amazing experience
, Oct 2019
This was such a great scuba diving experience! We saw turtles, small sharks and spotted eagle rays (which I thought was awesome!). Our instructor was super friendly and was super accomodating to my partner who decided he would rather not dive. He explained how to use the equipment and all of the skills we would need and added humour too which was great 😊 Also the free GoPro pictures is such an amazing bonus that you can't get anywhere else in Hawaii! I had a brilliant afternoon and would defenitely recommend to anyone!
Scary but fun!
, Oct 2019
The instructor and captain are super nice! I’m not that good of a swimmer, but I ended up being able to do it because of the instructor’s coaching. He was patient and very trustworthy. It is still a little scary though, so if you are not really confident I would recommend going with submarine scooter instead. But if you wanna challenge yourself, join this beginner lesson!
Great with Beginners Scuba Divers
, Jul 2019
Was a great experience and very knowable with beginners. Would recommend to a new person to try Scuba Diving.
Great Direction and Amazing Views
, Jul 2019
This trip had to be the best value during our time in Hawai'i! We were able to dive down twice about 40 feet (10.5 meters) without certification for roughly 30 minutes each dive. We saw tons of fishes, a couple sharks, some moray eels, and plenty of reef. The guides gave us plenty of direction and preparation for the dive and made it an absolutely amazing experience. Would definitely do it again on a future trip.
This was the best thing we have done...

This was the best thing we have done on our trip. Highly recommend going with them if you want to scuba dive. Ken and Jeff were great instructors and help you through everything including staying calm and having fun. Also, the price was great compared to others and they even offer free pictures and videos
