My family's favorite activity during our stay on Oahu. The experience was exhilarating and I am likely to pursue certification now. Capt Lonnie seemed a little intense in the morning, but was having fun with us all by the second half of the trip. Melanie was an excellent instructor and I felt completely at ease with my family under her expert guidance.

This tour was my second favorite thing I did while in Hawaii. I was terrified to scuba as I am not a very strong swimmer. This was such a rewarding experience and I will definitely try to scuba again in the future. My instructor was Mark and I could not have asked for a better person to lead a discovery dive. He makes sure that you are comfortable throughout the dive and doesn't take any chances with your safety. This is a must try!!! There are so much cool stuff happening on the ocean floor. Definitely worth checking out!

This was the highlight of our vacation. The crew was wonderful. They made us feel comfortable not only in the water, but also on board. Their equipment is excellent, their snacks were great, and their hospitality was even better. They took us to two dive sites. The first one was at a submerged ship. The second one was at an area with a nice coral formation. We saw lots of marine life and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As this was our second discover dive, we were encouraged and have decided to complete our certification with them. We will be back near this time next year to complete the class. We couldn't have asked for a better time than with this wonderful crew. I highly recommend it to anyone!
