Honolulu Boat Scuba Dive Tour

Location: Waikiki, Oahu

Come explore what lies beneath the ocean surface just 10 minutes outside of Waikiki during this Shallow Reef Boat Dive.

Oahu is part of the most isolated chain of islands in the world! This means that as much as 30 percent of the marine life you’ll see on our reefs cannot be found anywhere else on earth! Aside from this, our reefs are known for their variety of colorful hard corals such as lobe, cauliflower, antler, brain and mushroom. Don’t miss the small stuff! While everyone can appreciate our massive turtles and other large pelagic animals, we stress the importance of the little guys. Our guides are known around the island for finding things other miss such as rare and colorful nudibranchs (sea slugs), frogfish, flourescent shrimp, camouflage octopus and more!

What to Expect

This Honolulu Scuba Shallow Water Dive Tour goes to depths of 60ft/18m max which is the perfect depth for both experienced certified divers and uncertified divers working towards their certification to enjoy.

With a very small ratio of 6 divers per Instructor, you will be personally supervised under the safest conditions.

Minimum Age Requirement for this dive is 10 years old

This is a two tank dive at two different dive sites conveniently located close to the Waikiki Hotels.

Your instructor will take you on a guided tour of our Hawaiian waters where you can encounter sea turtles, octopus, hundreds of different fish, and much more. Discover the world few have seen!

Dive Sites

TURTLE CANYON -15 to 30ft/5-10m

  • It's in the name! As many as a dozen green sea turtles can been seen together here. Take a knee and watch one of the busiest turtle cleaning stations on the island. Several at a time gather to have their shells cleaned by tangs, wrasses and other fish. The turtles are used to divers, so getting a photo with one is usually easy. Don't touch though, these guys are protected by law.

NAUTILUS REEF - 30 to 60ft/10-18m

  • A great example of Hawaiian hard corals create a nice elongated reef. One of those rare dives where white tips can almost always be found resting under lava rock ledges. Massive yellow margin moray eels, leaf scorpionfish, and octopus are also common

HORSESHOE REEF/KEWALO PIPE - 40 to 65 ft/12 - 20m

  • Another south side double whammy! Horseshoe reef gets its name from its shape. Here you can find several species of eels, pincushion starfish, and antler coral. Swim 50ft/15m to Kewalo pipe. Keep your eyes peeled for spotted eagle rays off in the distance, and follow along this drainage pipe covered in coral and little critters galore.
