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!

Dive Sites:

TURTLE CANYON -15 to 30ft/5-10m
Its in the name! As many as a two 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 lave rock ledges by day. 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.

We had a great day out diving and even got to see a few sea turtles. As soon as the guides saw our certifications they register some basic safety procedures and started talking casually about the area and the sea life we could see!

I was delighted when I found out about this tour and the chance to swim with sea turtles. I couldn’t believe how friendly these animals were and this is an experience I will never forget! The boat was very well maintained too making the experience better.

My girlfriend is a PADI certified diver, I am not. But thanks to this dive that made it possible for us to go together on the same dive. This is definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

I love this tour for so many reasons. First, tour time is not so early. Second, check in location is so close to Waikiki. Third, the dive sites are full of marine life! Two thumbs up!
