Our custom-built boats were built specifically for Hawaiian waters! Our small groups ensure maximum fun and intimacy with a limit of 6 people on the boat. This gives every diver the attention they need to feel safe and have fun! We frequent 20 dive sites up to 15 minutes from the boat harbor making a 2-tank boat dive a half-day trip.

Please be aware that health conditions, certain medications, or recent surgery may require written approval from a physician before diving.
