What you'll do

This tour is “FOR BEGINNERS”, so NO PRIOR scuba or swimming experience is required! All tours are in the ocean on a Reef and you are guaranteed to see aquatic life and fish. Your dive professionals will start you out from the beach where they will go over information and fundamentals of scuba diving. Usually 10-15 min.

Getting Comfortable:
Your dive pro will start you out in waist deep water (3ft) to get you comfortable with breathing underwater and teach you some basic scuba diving skills. Everyone learns scuba and gets comfortable differently and at different timing which is why we make all of the tours private with your own dive professionals for you and your group.

Guided Scuba Dive:
After the dive pros get you comfortable and they are comfortable with you they will give you an underwater tour, showing you all the beautiful aquatic life and fish. They’ll also capture some of those memories on video!

Duration
1.5 – 2 hours (depending on your group size and how you do in the water)
Confirmation Email
After booking you will recieve a confirmation email that will have all of the details for your reservation, including what to expect, what to bring, and where to check in.
Other things to note
All equipment is included. Please wear a bathing suit. There are lockers on site to store your belongings. Check in location is in front of Lifeguard stand 1G at Magic Island, Honolulu.

Great experience! The guide was very patient to teach beginners. At first we had safety and breathing practice at shallow water and get used to how to breath in water. After that we went deeper and see corrals and fishes. It’s amazing!

My guide Zola was super helpful. I didn’t have much swimming experience and needed a little more guidance and help than most people, and Zola saw to it that I was always comfortable. Make sure you go during a bright and sunny time of the day so that there’s enough sunlight to light up underwater. Definitely recommend!

This was amazing. First time scuba diving and Max (diving instructor) made me feel safe and comfortable. This was a surreal experience and I would 100% do it again.
