If you’ve always wanted to try scuba diving — but never knew where to start — this beginning Oahu scuba dive is the key to a whole other world. Learn the basics of scuba theory and how to breathe underwater, and a professional instructor will ensure your safety and act as your underwater guide. There’s no need for prior diving experience as the dive is in shallow water, and once you demonstrate basic skills and are comfortable breathing underwater, you’re ready to follow your guide toward the reef and scour the ocean floor.
  • Beginner scuba diving class in Oahu
  • Scuba diving course is perfect for novices - no experience required
  • Sail along the Leeward Coast on your way to the dive site
  • See Hawaii's colorful marine life, including tropical fish and sea turtles
  • Professional, certified PADI guide
  • Use of all equipment is included
On this beginner Oahu scuba diving tour, first-time, intro and novice divers will learn the basics of scuba, and experience the thrill of breathing underwater with a professionally trained instructor. There’s no need for any certification or previous diving experience, and all the necessary equipment is provided for exploring the underwater world. 
The adventure begins as you cruise along Oahu’s Leeward Coast, taking in views of Mt. Ka’ala and strings of sandy coves. On board, your instructor provides a thorough overview of the safety and basics of diving, before getting you fitted with a BC and regulator for the underwater journey. When you reach the protected instruction area, you’ll splash in the water and practice your skills with the instructor, who will show you how to clear your mask and use your inflatable vest. 
With all the skills successfully completed, you’ll follow your guide away from the boat in search of tropical marine life. Scan the reef for Hawaiian green sea turtles or schools of colorful fish, and there’s even the chance some eagle rays will go swimming by in the distance. The reefs here are some of the island’s oldest, and during the months of December-April you could even hear humpback whales. 
Aside from the fish, turtles, and corals, one of the day’s highlights is the friendly staff who burst with Aloha spirit, and exude exemplary customer service throughout the entire experience. Light snacks are provided on board, and there’s also the option of round-trip transport from your Honolulu hotel.

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!
