Learn to Scuba Dive in Kauai

Who wants to dive? EVERYONE!

No experience necessary! You can dive for the first time in Kauai’s beautiful waters with a personal, almost hand-held experience with our SCUBA instructors.

We’re thrilled to have you here in Hawaii, and we want to ensure you have an unforgettable time exploring the beauty of our oceans!

For your safety and enjoyment, it’s essential that any medical concerns are resolved more than 48 hours before your scheduled dive. If you have any questions, please review the medical history questionnaire (PDF) or get in touch with us – we’re here to assist you every step of the way.

We understand plans can change, but if you need to cancel within 48 hours of your dive, the booking fee will be forfeited, unless, of course, mother nature has different plans. Though rare, if she prevents the event from taking place, we’ll make sure you’re well-informed and provide suitable alternatives.

Kauai is a magical place, and we can’t wait to share its wonders with you. Mother nature might be a bit moody at times, but together, we’ll make your experience extraordinary!
