A friend had suggested diving with Reef Pirates because we wanted to dive the Corsair. Great suggestion. Great dive company. Called and talked to Captain Dan who got us booked on a Sunday!

Went out with Reef Pirates this last weekend and highly recommend them for any dive tours you do on Oahu! We did not rent a vehicle and they came to our hotel and picked us up and took us to their dive shop which is located right at the docks. They had the boat pretty well setup and ready to... More

Had an incredible time with Reef Pirates this weekend on the Corsair Dive. Not only did I finally experience diving freely with 4 Whitetip Reef Sharks, but hearing the whales underwater and seeing them breach from the boat was the cherry on top. To add on to the fun, we got to explore the wonders of the Corsair and sneaked... More

Aloha Alice, Thank you very much for your review! I'm glad you were able to see the abundant marine life Maunalua Bay has to offer! While we can't promise seeing humpback whales for everyone, we are fortunate to see them quite often during our winter season. Hopefully you will dive with us again soon!

I found myself with some free time and booked a last-minute wreck and reef dive. This company was great. The shop is located right along the dock where the boat is, so their is no walk or van ride needed to get to the boat. Each dive only has 6 divers or less on a spacious boat, so there is... More

Aloha Kenya, Thank you for your review - we are glad you had a great time. Reef Pirates has always been about quality, not quantity and we will continue to limit the number of divers we take on our dive charters to 6 divers of less. We also make sure we provide our customers with high-quality gear and excellent customer... More

We had a group of 4, including 1 scuba diver, and were looking for something we could all enjoy. Reef Pirates offers half day private charters that are super reasonable in price. Captain Dan and JP were totally accommodating in finding a couple places the diver could enjoy as well as the snorklers. We had a fantastic time, got to... More

I was picked up at my hotel and as we were a small group we were soon fitted with our equipment and went out in the rather small boat. For the morning dive it was only certified divers. The nice and professional staff took care of the equipment, but nobody bothered with a buddy check before going in. We made... More

My partner and I had an awesome experience diving with Reef Pirates on 3rd Feb! We chose Reef Pirates as they take out a max of 6 people, and they go early in the morning, which is great as you miss the crowds. The captain and dive master were down to earth and just wanted to make sure everyone had... More

The Reef Pirates crew - Bud and Michael - were great! Our 2 tank dive to the Corsair and KoKo Crater were awesome. Very professional but they didn't baby us, since our group was all certified (the 6:30 am dive is usually for certified divers). We will bring our kids next time! Thanks for the amazing adventure!
