These guys know what they're doing. We had four experienced divers and one first timer. The dive master struck a great balance...giving us all a memorable dive. God equipment. Helpful and encouraging. Also provides great photos.

Devin was a great, patient instructor and he took his time to tell us everything we needed to know. He obviously has a ton of experience and we saw a bunch of wildlife on our beginner dive including a reef shark, octopus and multiple turtles. My wife got nervous being underwater and eventually wanted to head back to the boat.... More

We did our certification dives with Drew. He was personable, energetic and very knowledgeable. He gave us lots of instruction and tips beyond the scope of the PADI requirements. All four dives Drew made sure we saw lots of interesting wildlife. Devon arranged the business side and did a good job of clearly explaining when/where to meet and what to... More

Devin is an amazing guide. Really easy to make a plan with, and was super helpful since I hadn't been diving in a while. Had a blast! You could tell he really cared if we had a good time, and made sure everyone was super comfortable. Went with a small group, which was cool. Can't say enough good things about... More

I was the only person on the diver which probably enhanced the experience. My guide, Devon was great. He knew the sites well and where to find the marine life. He pointed out an octopus which was an amazing sight, one I would have missed on my own, and through many swim throughs on the wreck. The gear was reliable... More

It was well organized. I had fun doing two "discovery" dives. Lots of fun, plenty of interesting species seen. Instructor Loren is great. I don't understand why there was a surcharge (extra payment) of $35.- required. I paid it without questioning but ....

I'm so glad to hear you had fun! The extra $35 is for the boat fee which isn't covered with the coupon, normally we do that tour from the beach, but with the conditions this time of year the best experience is from the boat. The $35 is what the Captain charges us per diver. I'm so sorry if that... More

Loved them. They made this entire experience very very fun and enjoyable. We saw tons of marine life in addition to getting certified. My favorite memory was holding an octopus for the first time ever- and I've lived in Hawaii for five years. I never write reviews, but these guys were awesome!
