DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING – NON-CERTIFIED DIVERS (NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED) Noon Charter: (Shallow Reef Dives, DSD Dives, Certification Dives)... more

Not a certified scuba diver? No problem! You do not need to be certified to try scuba diving in Oahu!
We offer daily PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) experiences on Oahu for those people who are not certified divers.
All that’s required is for you be in good physical condition (please see the medical questionnaire), have the desire to try scuba diving, and be at least 10 years of age . Our price for a DSD experience is $145 plus tax. This includes a 15-20 min class (diving safety, what to expect, introduction to equipment and a demonstration of a few basic skills followed by a 10 question quiz), Dive Instructor, 2 ocean dives (generally 30-45 min each), all equipment needed, and; once you complete the DSD experience, we will register your class with PADI.
Get away from the crowded touristy experience and enjoy a relaxing enjoyable Oahu diving experience! Make your Hawaiian vacation complete and try scuba diving in Oahu. We pick up guests at their Waikiki area hotel between 11:00 – 11:15AM and arrive at our shop at 11:30 am (if you are meeting us at the shop, meet time is 11:30AM at this location). From there we fill out the necessary paperwork, gear up and get onto the boat. We launch about 12:00 PM and head out to our first dive site (normally a shallow reef dive with Hawaii’s green sea turtles). After the first dive, we change out the tanks while you enjoy complementary snacks and water. During our surface interval, we motor to our second dive site; a second shallow reef dive. Once we complete our second dive, we head back to the marina and offload; while we unload you have time to visit our shop to pick up a t-shirt, hoodie, hat or more, fill in and stamp your log book or grab a shave ice near-by. We are back in the shuttle at 3:30 and dropping you off at your Waikiki hotel around 4:00 PM.
Please note that drop off times depend a lot on how long we spent diving and even more on Oahu’s traffic.
We start off by having you fill out a medical questionnaire. Please note that if you answer “yes” to any of the questions on the medical form, we require a doctor’s clearance before we can take you underwater. If you do not have time before your trip, there are low cost options available in Waikiki such as Doctor’s On Call. If the answer to each question is “no”, a doctor’s clearance is not be required.
You can expect to see turtles, eels, fish, and the occasional octopus during your dives. Other possibilities include rays, monk seals, reef sharks, and dolphins.

ABOUT WRECK DIVING ON OAHU

One of the things that sets Oahu apart from the other Hawaiian Islands are the numerous wreck dives available. Aside from the wrecks themselves, these dive sites tend to be the preferred cruising areas of the larger animals such as sharks, rays and whales during winter months.
Sunken barges, and old landing craft (that sharks like to call home), and Hawaii’s most famous wreck, the WWII Corsair Plane Wreck are all right off Oahu’s southeast coast just waiting to be explored. As we only take a maximum of six divers per trip on our Oahu dive boat, you won’t have to worry about the dive sites being crowded. Additionally our wreck dives are the first dives of the day, and our dive boat leaves 30-45 minutes prior to the other local area shops. That means we get to the sites first, before everything is scared away!
Most of the wrecks we dive sit between 70 – 110′, so a minimum of basic open water certification is required. One of our wrecks, Baby Barge begins at 60 feet which is a great introduction deep dive and a great dive for our Junior Divers under instruction. A few of the wrecks offer the opportunity for penetration, however most of the life is found outside. Many of the wrecks off Oahu have been underwater for some time, and have sharp edges – care should be taken when diving the wrecks, and good buoyancy is key. Because our Oahu wreck dives are deeper dives, bottom time can vary quite a bit depending on which wreck we hit. Ask us about extending your bottom time by getting your Nitrox certification.
Additionally, all of our dives are led by a professional PADI instructor or dive master. Let us show you the best scuba diving Oahu has to offer.

The Manta dive or snorkel is an exhilarating underwater experience that is unique to the Kona Coast and one of the top night dives of the world! We start our adventure at Honokohau ... moreHarbor in the afternoon and cruise the Kona coast up to Garden Eel Cove. Divers and snorkelers enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian marine life during the day and come back up for a 1 hour surface interval where we serve light refreshments and sandwiches as we enjoy sunset. After nightfall our knowledgeable crew will take you back into the water to see these gentle giants loop, somersault, and cruise in the beams of light as they funnel the plentiful plankton into their giant mouths.


The divers will settle down on the bottom of the ocean floor and shine their dive lights up to attract the plankton. Snorkelers, on the surface, will surround a snorkel board, led by a snorkel guide, with lights pointed down.

What is included?

We provide tanks, weights, and dive lights for our divers. During your surface interval sandwiches, snacks, and water will be provided while you enjoy the Kona sunset. After your second dive hot chocolate or tea will be available for the boat ride home.
For our snorkelers we have mask, snorkel, fins, and a 5mm wetsuit available for your use. You will also have a professional snorkel guide with you in the water for the duration of the activity.
Dive Requirements:

Certified Divers: Divers are required to have their Open Water Certification and to bring their certification card (no card = no diving). We would be happy to help you find your certification, but sometimes we find them and sometimes we don't (which means no diving and no refund) so please let us help you early. We would love for you to come talk story prior to your dive, but if you would like to go directly to the boat please make sure you have your certification card on your person or have emailed us a copy of your c-card and have signed the electronic waiver. Remember no c-card = no diving.
You are expected to have been on a recent dive, at least within the past 2 years. If you have been dry over 2 years we do require a check out dive to be done prior to this activity.
Junior Open Water Divers are welcome to join on the dive, but ages 10-11 are required to have a private guide. Divers ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or private guide.
