What to expect
First we check into the shop and complete pre activity paperwork. Divers will be fitted for mask fins and wetsuits and proceed to the boat about a mile away. From there the divers will head out onto the ocean for the first to two scuba dives. You will need to be comfortable enough in the water to show the instructor that you can clear your mask and recover your regulator (instruction provided) before starting your dive. Complete 2 scuba dives approximately 40 minutes each with the instructor. It is extremely likely that you are going to encounter a green sea turtle on your dives. Over 50 species of fish for sure, and a good chance for octopus, eels, rays, and maybe even a small white tip reef shark!

everyone should try this
Feb 2020
This is my fourth Discovery Scuba and by far this company was the best of them all. We had 2 dives in different areas and saw a good variety of sea life. The guides are very personable and make the entire experience safe, fun, and extremely enjoyable. I highly recommend this for first timers or many timers!!

Great First Time Dive
Jan 2020 • Family
My uncle visiting from Cleveland wanted to give diving a try, so we went on a Discover Scuba Dive led by Josie and had an amazing time! She was so patient and calm and let him take his time so he was fully comfortable by the second dive. He raved all weekend about the experience and said it was his favorite activity from the visit. I know personally how great HSC is, so I was glad to share it with family. Thanks so much!

Great experience!!!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Having only been waist deep in the costal waters of California. Never thought I'd be diving, especially in HAWAII!!! Captain Jeremy and his crew were amazing. Violet in particular was marvelous, patient and great on walking me threw the steps for my first dive (after a failed attempt). Would most certainly go again and highly recommend.

DSD turned to open water certified
Dec 2019 • Family
Wife got my son and I a DSD for Christmas and went the day after to see if my 17 yo son would like diving. Though weather had been bad the past week, the crew was confident they could give us a good, safe dive. The crew (Supergirl, Diamond, Bruce, Violet, and others) were great! They were very attentive to everyone's needs and answered all questions. Due to low clarity, we teamed up in small groups, with Violet as our (3x of us) leader. She helped us both through some initial personal issues and took us ~45' down. I didn't have enough weight to keep my buoyant a$$ down, so Violet used me as an underwater surf board to ensure I stayed down. I felt like mushroom and she was Mario!! Hahahah. She was adamant that we'd enjoy our dive. We saw fish, reef and turtles. The crew answered our questions about getting my son open water certified, and when we got back, we signed him up for classes the next week! Violet was the primary instructor for initially 7x folks (2x dropped for personal reasons during the class). She was extremely attentive, safe and fun to be around. In 3 days (7 dives later) my son got open water certified and is excited to continue his adventure! Thanks so much to the entire HSC crew (just bc I don't mention a name isn't indicative of their performance; I'm old and forgetful!). My son enjoyed the experience so much, he wants to start volunteering with HSC and hopefully continue to pursue more certs. Great experience! Very pleased with cost and attentiveness!

We loved our time with Honolulu scuba company. The whole process from pickup to drop off was awesome. Our first dive we did was with David, which was phenomenal, everyone on the boat was very calming, knowledgeable, and funny. Captain John and Scuba Steve were awesome as well. We loved our first dive so much, my husband and I booked a second dive for the next day, Bruce and Violet were awesome on the second dive as well.

Family Scuba Outing - 1st Timers & Certified
Dec 2019
We had an exceptional time!!!! Our boys (ages 12 & 14) continue to rave about their experiences under water. Kevin - you are an exceptional leader!!!! The clear instructions, plus the continuous attention throughout the dive instilled the needed comfort/trust, and made the dive a joy. Should mention the sightings of multiple Sea Turtles and Eels enhanced the experience.

Thanks to the supporting team (Ellen, Rob & Captain SA) for your expertise. You're truly professionals. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!!!!!

Private Charter - Snorkel & Scuba
Oct 2019
After much research, we decided on HSC for our group that was interested in both snorkeling and scuba diving. Kevin was prompt to pick us up at our hotel in Waikiki. After a brief stop to get outfitted with gear and sign the necessary waivers, we were on our way to the boat. Captain David gave a quick safety briefing then took us to our first stop at Turtle Bay. It was amazing. We had requested a photographer and were fortunate to have Mark join us. He got some amazing photos of us with the the turtles, and other marine life. Our second stop was another shallow reef dive where we saw a couple of reef shark hiding out. It was a great experience for all. PS Ellen was great to communicate with me prior to our trip and answer all my questions.

One of the best activities you can do on Oahu
Aug 2019
We had a mix of certified and non-certified SCUBA divers in our group. It was great that they had a trip that allowed up to experience 40' below together. The entire crew, boat captain, instructors and shop staff were all great. All of us non-divers were a little nervous, but the instructors/guides made us feel at ease in and out of the water. This was one of the most memorable things were have ever done in Hawaii and everyone should give it a try.
