The first day was great, the Dive Master, Johnny, picked me up from my hotel and we did my confined water tests in the morning. Then in the afternoon, we went... More

I dove with them on their 4 open water dives and it was a great experience. They took great care of us and we had a wonderful... More

Great overall experience with Reef Pirates. I dove Oahu with them. Knowledgeable about the dive areas which is a real plus for me. Helpful when gearing up, they make sure you are comfortable and have what you need for a safe dive. Their equipment appears to be in good order from the dive equipment to the boat. Been with other...

Diving in Hawaii was amazing - great visibility and lots of turtles and fish! Reef pirates were fantastic! Super friendly and helpful - we did the morning dive with them at corsair and Koko crater. We were the only group at the corsair wreck and were the first group at Koko crater - the early start is perfect as all... More

Went on two dives. First was the Corsair wreck and then Paradise reef. Both were great dives. The dive master and captain were both very knowledgeable about the area and where to go to take pictures of sea life.

The whole experience started with booking online which was extremely easy and convenient. Soon after I was emailed by Satoshi who made sure that everything fit in to my schedule,... More

Great dive charter! Friendly staff, courteous and competent. Did the afternoon shallow reef dive- loads of turtles and Moray eels. Going for the deep water wreck dive on Saturday- can't wait! Highly recommended! Mahalo!

My family and I were in Hawaii from April 1-10. Prior to the trip, I had contact Reef Pirates about a group packages and right from the beginning they were more accommodating than any other dive shop I spoke with. Satoshi was who I coordinated with for a group quote and he gave us a fantastic group rate. He suggested... More

This was my second time diving with Reef Pirates and while I believe they've changed owners over the past year, I still found the same excellent service as my first dive. They managed to pick me up downtown despite having to navigate through a half marathon and quickly got us out on the water before the other dive boats. Johnny... More

Aloha, Thank you for your review of Reef Pirates Diving! We are now locally owned (since Jan 2017) and have kept the same crew as before! The Hapalua half marathon did cause some logistical issues but we are glad everything worked out. We look forward to taking you diving on your next trip to Oahu! Mahalo, Reef Pirates Diving More
