My partner and I had a great experience with Reef Pirates diving. Dove the Yo-257 and San-Pedro, a couple reefs, and the sea cave. Pete, Jonny, and Lee made the experience great. Highly recommend these guys if you are interested in seeing some of the better dive sites of Honolulu. Mahalo!

Aloha David, Thank you for your review of Reef Pirates Diving! We are glad we were able to take you out to YO-257 and the San Pedro. If the conditions are right, the 3-tank dives on Wednesday enable us to go a bit farther out. We look forward to you and your partner diving with us again in the future!... More

Just returned home from a super two days diving with turtles and visiting the sunken landing craft with Reef Pirates with my husband. While professional the whole team try hard to engage you to make the experience super fun. Couldn't stop laughing when one diver was getting a tank change and he said "don't touch my stuff" (with only 400psi... More

Reef Pirates is under new ownership, and they seem to really be taking the entire operation up a notch (it was already very good). Their safety record is outstanding thanks to the hard work of their crew. Today we dove with Captain Pete and Lee (DM). Good briefings, nice gear, amazing dives, and lots of fun! Total confidence diving with... More

These guys were great. I have a handicap but that was no problem. They didn't mind giving extra help. They put us on 2 great reef dives and told us just what to look for. They think safety first and we had a fun time.

Overall great experience. These guys make safety a priority, which defiantly put my anxiety at ease. We ended up having to cut the second dive short because of bad conditions-Captain Dan was extremely accommodating and made sure I got back out to finish my certification before I went home. Ended up getting in an extra dive! Incredible experience start to... More

Aloha Margaret, Safety is our top priority and unfortunately we do need to cut dives short if the conditions aren't right. We are very glad you were able to finish your certification before you left and got to see a bunch of Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) along the way! Mahalo, Reef Pirates Diving More

Loved these guys! I am a never ever and took my first dive class with Reef Pirates. It was on a weekend of one of the worst rain/wind days Ohau had seen in awhile. It was not the best conditions but my dive instructor was very patient and understanding and I learned and gained so much knowledge in that short... More

Excellent experience with these guys, the instructor was extremely clear and helpful and the key to making the experience for a newbie like me super easy and enjoyable.
