What people are saying about Honolulu

The crew was absolutely amazing! There was private instruction prior to taking a dive to approximately 30 feet which is far deeper than I expected to go for an introductory dive. The crew was professional, funny, engaging, and totally competent in their ability to train beginner divers. I will highly recommend this excursion to my friends. Thank you for a fantastic day and awesome experience.

I was really scared of the sensation of breathing underwater with the scuba gear. My instructed stuck with me and encouraged me that I could do it. After 15 minutes I was swimming with sea turtles and sharks. Could be more happy with the experience.

Awe, my 10 year old daughter and I greatly enjoyed it!!! If I was to only critic one thing its the volume of the announcer, were in a sub so the sound of her voice cant go anywhere and everyone can easily hear. :)

The instructors were great. They made everything easy to understand and ensured we had a great experience every step of the way. It was so fun we are going back tomorrow.

Our guide was very funny and knowledgeable. Enjoyed seeing the sunken ships and airplanes with lots of colorful fish. Very comfortable inside.
