This beginner scuba diving class is great for first-time divers, as well as anyone who may have had a lesson or two but hasn’t completed a diving course. Use of all equipment is included.

Begin your adventure cruising along the scenic Leeward Coast. Your instructor will provide a scuba overview, teaching you the basics of the equipment and breathing techniques. Practice the scuba diving techniques in shallow water under the close watch of your instructor before heading into deeper water to enjoy a thrilling 30-minute dive, still under the supervision of a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) professional.

The waters off the Leeward Coast teem with some of the oldest coral reefs in the area. Discover Oahu’s colorful and vibrant sea life, including moray eels, eagle rays, green sea turtles and a variety of tropical fish.

Great day! The staff on the boat were wonderful! Wish we could have stayed underwater longer!!!

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.
