Learn how to SCUBA and swim along coral reefs, tropical fish and green sea turtles as PADI 5-star certified instructors teach you from a custom dive boat.


There is no better way to explore the crystal clear waters of Oahu than diving under the sea and going on a SCUBA dive! The island's underwater paradise is at your fingertips as some of the friendliest and most experienced guides teach you how to dive down to 40-feet on two separate dives. After you are fitted for gear at the dive shop, you will receive a quick briefing before heading out into the ocean for your introductory scuba experience. By keeping participants to a minimum and preparing at a PADI 5-star and NAUI Pro facility, safety and peace of mind is an important aspect to every dive.

Apparently I was affraid of diving, but didn't know until I was already in the water with the gear on. But the instructor was... vere understanding and did the things in my pace. Actually he held my hand during the entire dive. I've definetly overcome my fear of diving and enjoyed the fish and turtles. Absolutely magnificent. more

Maj Juul

These guys are pro! Had an awesome dive, saw tons of fish, the weather was perfect, I couldn't ask for more. Thanks so Aaro...n and crew for making our experience truly amazing. more

Kai Carney

We dove to a downed Course Air at 120 ft and Koko Crater about 30 ft. The Course Air was very cool and second dive to Koko Crater... was great too, lots of sea life including a half dozen sea turtles. The dives were both led by Scott a master dive instructor who was fun and professional. more

Had an absolutely great day. I have only done one other dive about 20 years ago, so I booked an introductory 2 tank dive. The inst...ruction by Bob was excellent. There was just myself and 1 other customer on our first dive then on the second we were joined by another instructor. We had encounters with Scorpion Leaf Fish, Moray Eels, Star Fish and not forgetting the best of all, the Octopus, which decided to attach itself to Bobs face. We were allowed to touch many of the different species under the close observation of our instructors. We spent at least 20-25 mins on the first dive and probably 30-35 minutes on the second. A truly memorable day from collection from my hotel to being dropped back off again. Wish I'd done it at the beginning of my holiday to then get certified from PADI. I'll just do it the next time..... more

Scott Taylor

I had so many questions about this tour that I called Veltra 7 times- and each time the gentleman was kind and courteous and told to call back if I had any more questions. It was easy dealing with this company and very affordable. Thank you for making this experience memorable. My whole family thanks you! more


Booked this activity for my husband and new son-in-law. They both had a wonderful time.

Waikiki Diving Centre has good equipment and a good boat. Capt. Dave and Dive Instructor Marco were fun, friendly and professiona...l. Dove on "Sea Tiger" wreck ... awesome dive to deck level at 100' and then to Horseshoe Reef ... Saw a Dragon Eel there ... very rare and very cool. Don't know how Marco found it buried in a coral hole but he did and made sure we all got a look. Only 6 experienced divers on this outing ... excellent diver to guide ration. Was a great trip! more

Mr. Anonymous

As a beginner diver. The instructors were great. Patient and understanding. The underwater experience is something everyone shoul...d put on their bucket list. It's A WHOLE NEW WORLD down there more


The instructors were great. Very patient with me and the beginner divers. Eventually I was the only beginner diver that made it to... the bottom of the ocean. Unbelievable experience with sea turtles and the other marine life. It's a whole new world down there more


All-in-all, I recommend this tour from Waikiki Dive Center. They have great instructors! When I first walked into the dive shop... it was fairly clean, but a little disorganized. The displays were a little difficult to reach and could be made better by putting out a single style and have customers ask for a size from the stock to sell in the back. Everybody there was pretty nice, and very laid back. It was busy so I could understand that things were running late. Once we got our gear, our driver Waylon took us to the boat at Kewalo Basin. He was friendly and nice to talk to but this is for scuba diving so don't expect a flamboyant tour bus operator. The initial instruction was done by Gracie. She was really nice and did a great job at explaining things to keep everyone safe and having a good time. This was my first time and I had a little anxiety, but the breathing in scuba diving really is like yoga breathing. It was very calming, a different world in the ocean. I kind of felt like an astronaut. We had two dives, and everyone was very helpful in instructing us. Lacey worked with my group. She was nice and very much about safety for us newbies. We saw all kinds of sea critters. I took it easy and did the 'yoga' breathing and it turned out quite well. If you want your scuba certification, Waikiki Dive Center is a great place to get it. This first intro dive counts towards it, so you're practically half way there already. Nice people + Nice scuba diving = Awesome! more


We loved everything about this place. The experience was very personal the group was only 5 people. I have only been 10 times and was my husbands first time it was slow enough for beginners but we still covered a lot of water. We saw so many turtles and even got to hold an octopus that out instructor found under some rocks. It was in unforgettable experience! more

The Tsuji Family

It was so good for me. Specialy I had experienced 9 m depth.

Tsutomu Fukui

What a great day. We swam with turtles and saw reef sharks, octopus, moray eels and beautiful fish. The visibility was incredible ...and as a certifued diver the best ive ever experienced. Amanda our guide was fantastic and we felt very safe. Wouls do it again definitely! more


This is my first time with the Waikiki Dive Center. Amazing and Unforgettable experience. Although it is introductory scuba, the instructor will actually give you freedom to swim around while accompanying you based on your needs and previous experience. (Other company's instructor will actually hold your tank while diving, which is annoying) 99% safe and they will never force you to do anything uncomfortable. Highly Recommended. more


It's a bit difficult to understand specialized vocabulary in English. But still had fun! The driver who picked me up said the...y will have Chinese version handbook very soon. more


Nice professional group of divers all eager to take us newbies down! They took the time to ensure we were all feeling safe and com...fortable. Great bunch of people. more


If you must do 1 thing in Hawaii then chose this one and forget everything else! This is a true experience of a life time. There i...s nothing above ground that could get similar to this Dive. I had never done this before and my wife and I decided to try it for the first time. The instructors are super knowledgeable and will show you each and every step of the way. From the very basic hand signals used under water all the way down to show you an octopus once you are at the bottom of the ocean. I brought a gopro camera with me but I forgot to get the case to go below 33feet under water so I couldn't take any pictures myself but the instructor took one of us and sent us via Facebook. These guys are amazing and I would love to do it again; in fact, we are going to do Scuba Diving again in Florida and the Bahamas since we loved it so much more


As first timers we were naturally nervous. The instruction was so reassuring. I would definitely do it again.

Mike and Virginia

Very friendly and knowledgable staff at Waikki Diving. I would recommend this to anyone that loves the water or has interest in be...coming a certified diver! Thanks for the great day!! more


From check in with the staff at the office to Our instructor Christian and Captain Steve and the rest of the crew, the whole day outstanding! Great instruction, kindness, patience, and clean equipment. more

Woolley Family

I had a great time diving. It had been a long time since my last dive so I considered myself a "beginner". Great staff ...and very helpful every step of the way. I highly recommend them! more


Really truly awesome, friendly, and knowledgeable people. Honestly they were just as cool as the actual diving experience. If I�...39;d been able to spend more time on the island I would have just completed my certification through them. 5 stars. more



Mr. Anonymous

We had scuba diving in Waikiki. It was more than awesome to do scuba diving in waikiki beach, swimming with sea turtle. It seemed ...sea turtle family . So excited seeing sea turtle under the sea. more
