What You Can Expect

Oahu Certified Scuba Diving Tour

Oahu Certified Scuba Diving Tour

Head underwater to explore what lies beneath the sparkling Pacific Ocean off Oahu’s coast. It’s a sensational smorgasbord of dive sites! You adventure starts as you cruise comfortably on the dive boat to the first dive location (approximately 20 minutes).

Note: You must be a certified scuba diver. Your credentials will be inspected before you dive.

Dive sites:
Koko Crater: These ledges of volcanic craters are home to many species of tropical fish, eels and octopi. Dive depth is about 40 feet (12 meters).
Sea Cave: Visit this large cave, a great place to observe many rare and beautiful fish and some amazing coral gardens.
Kahala Barge: This small barge was sunk in just the right spot for a dive. Just below the barge is a cave. Dive depth is about 65-85 feet (20-26 meters).
Corsair Fighter Plane: In 1946, this WWII fighter plane ran out fuel on a training mission and was ditched in the ocean!
Other sites: Turtle Canyons, Palea Point, Fantasy Reef and more.

Water temperature typically ranges between 70 to 75 degrees F (21 to 24 C) from November to April and 75 to 80 degrees F (24 to 27 C) from May to October.

Shipwrecks option:
If you’re a shipwrecks buff or just want another option for diving, choose the Shipwrecks option to spend approximately 30-45 minutes exploring the YO-257, a Navy yard oiler built in the 1940s. Then, climb back aboard the dive boat to cruise to the next shipwreck location, the Sea Tiger (a 20-minute trip). You’ll have another 30-45 minutes exploring the Sea Tiger at approximately 100 feet (30 meters) below the surface. Sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef, the Sea Tiger is home to the early stages of marine life growth.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

I had a great time. The staff was amazing. They were helpful and made sure we had the best experience possible. I would recommend Aqua Zone to anyone!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2013

I have done over 2,000 dives and was looking forward to doing something special. The operator advertised a plane dive and wreck dives. When I asked about doing the plane, I was told that it was a deep dive. I advised them that not only was I a Dive Master but I was also A Dive Rescue Specialist and have done lots of wreck dives also. I was told that they would get back to me before the dive, about three days out. Not only did they not contact me, but when I contacted them back, I was told that they were not going to do the airplane. As for wanting to do a wreck dive, I was not given the option.

I do not smoke and my regulator tasted like an ashtray as well as was hard to breath off until I got down. I was told that the regulator had just been serviced and that there was nothing wrong with it.

The dive instructor was nice and saw to it that those of us with more experience were given more time down, after the new divers had to surface. I appreciated this. The diving was good with turtles and lots of coral to see.

When I got back to the shop, I enquired about the wreck dives and the airplane dive. I was given more excuses why they couldn't do the more experienced dives and went away feeling like they advertised as hype with no intention of doing the type of dives that they advertised! Great for beginners but I wouldn't recommend them to someone who wants more ou8t of a dive. Ross H.
