Fun Time Diving - January 2017

I dove 3 days with WDC. Now their office is located on a one-way street and parking can be tough to find. But they will pick you up from your hotel! Initially, I stopped by their... read more

My best friend and I booked a beginner's scuba dive for the 15th Feb 2017 for an afternoon dive - 10:15am with Waikiki Dive Centre. The process of it was really easy. Our scuba dive instructor Marco was really nice and friendly and ensured that everything was okay. He went through safety things before you went down under, which helped... More

DO NOT DIVE WITH WITH THIS GROUP!!! Unprofessional...unsafe...terrible equipment. Been diving many times...there are plenty of other options in Waikiki. Not worth it A BUNCH OF KIDS RUNNING THE DIVE SHOP.

I dove 3 days with WDC. Now their office is located on a one-way street and parking can be tough to find. But they will pick you up from your hotel! Initially, I stopped by their office to get all sized up for my gear, but opted to drive myself to the harbor. On the additional dive days, I just... More

Great staff!!! They are all naturals in flattering their clients and making them feel good. I inquired about freediving on one of their excursions. Emanuelle arranged for their freediver, Tim Lilo, to accompany me. I joined a scuba group of 8 divers. The dive instructors were awesome. The boat was in excellent shape and the skipper was professional; and that... More

It's been 8 years since my last dive, nearly 25 for my husband. Nick gave the most comprehensive safety refresher I've ever heard. Dive sites were amazing. His crew was great, laid back but thorough, friendly and made our day awesome. Excellent gear, safe tanks/air. Highly recommend this dive center.

Diving into the ocean is something you have to do in Hawaii. I tried it although I've never done it before and it was amazing. The staff was very helpful and well trained and gave us a lot of instruction before going into the water and was by our side underwater. The underwater experience was fantastic since it is very...

Booked online a couple of weeks before for 2 dives a day for 3 days. Dive masters were Liz, Red and Erica. These guys are good. Dive went to plan, saw some great stuff (wrecks, planes, turtles and octopuses). Will dive with them next time I am here. Pickup was on time, no dramas.

Took a little while to actually get out onto the water and in it for the divers - but mostly because there was a large family that took a bit to get ready. Two of us were snorkelling and although the sites weren't amazing for snorkelling, the captain took us to a turtle area the second time which was absolutely... More

I was fortunate to be able to visit Oahu and go on two dive trips. Capt Steve, Erica and Liz were all excellent; very professional and enthusiastic. They treated the dive group with respect and understood our abilities. They didn't hold our hands or make us feel that we weren't capable. They did make sure that we were comfortable, they... More
