While on a work trip I had one day off and chose to complete a two tank dive with Fathom Five. The team was awesome. As expected they were easing and knew my questions before I asked them, but they played along and were professional about everything. I completed a two tank dive from Koloa Landing. The Dive Master was... More

Our south shore dive with Carlos was only our 3rd dive since certification; I had trouble descending, but Carlos patiently helped me until we were on our way! He heard dolphins so we headed towards the sounds...Carlos located the dolphins--they were swimming right above us, and then a pod of 8-12 dolphins moved down and played right in front of... More

My wife and I went on a shore dive, our instructor was Carlos, and he was great. Carlos was extremely helpful and patient with me, even when at the beginning I was unsure if I would be able to dive. He encouraged me and from there I was diving with no problem. The entire experience was perfect for my first... More

Captain Tom and Bahaar made our 2 tank morning dive extra enjoyable with very professional attitudes but with an accent on fun. We had said we just wanted to see lots of fish and turtles and Bahaar made sure we did! She knew where the "snickers" of the ocean hid out and at Sheraton caverns took us on a great... More

Booked a two-tank boat dive. The conditions were very choppy and there was a substantial current; so, I wasn't expecting the greatest dives. However, the captain and divemaster (Tom and Carlos) picked out beautiful areas that weren't too affected by the conditions. Also, the rental equipment is top-notch....it seemed almost new, and the regs had built-in dive computers. I also... More

Dive companies on Kauai are a relatively sparse commodity, especially in comparison to Big Island and Oahu, but if you're going to dive here you can't go wrong with Fathom Five. My wife and I went for an a.m. boat dive with Carlos as our guide. Both he and the captain gave clear detailed briefings before heading o the sites... More

Absolutely lovely time. We were able to get out to Niihau twice during our week, and it did not disappoint! Fathom Five made every step easy, we were able to book online, and when our plans changed drastically, we were able to rearrange everything without a problem. Crew was great, they even held on to our equipment and washed it... More

Enjoyed a terrific set of dives at Koloa Landing. Jose was our dive master and Sarah assisted as she developed her own dive master skills. Ashley took our call and set us up, and everything went smoothly start to finish. Very professional, nice, and accommodating people. And for under $200 we enjoyed a reintroduction to diving (since it had been... More

We had the pleasure of diving with Fathom Five for a few days in April. They are a full service dive shop. Everyone who works there was great, from the shop staff to our captains and dive instructors. Captain Tom and Captain Charlie each gave a thorough boat briefing and we were off to our first dive site. The dive... More

I've been diving for 15 years and recently went on an engagement trip with my fiancé to Kaua'i. We found Fathom Five through numerous guidebooks and online reviews. They were SO EASY to book with and super helpful! Other shops on the island make you do a shore dive with them before doing a boat dive, which I didn't want... More
