I am certified, my child is not. We dove with the owner, on a Discover Scuba dive who took my child by the hand through the entire first dive, while she learned to clear her ears. Luckily, by the second dive, my child learned how to go a little deeper, and was able to swim without being held by the... More

The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Couldn't have asked for better people to dive with. We dove 4 days with both Captain Earl (adore this salty dog) and the spirited and energetic Captain Linda (owner). The boats are a little older but they are fast and sturdy and captain Earl handles rough seas amazingly! They do the Niihau crossing... More

My son isn't a certified diver but I am. I got him into the Discover Scuba class. After a 2hr orientation we went out on a 2 tank boat dive. We dove two seperate sites. It was pretty rough and my son got sea sick. It didn't slow him down any. They were Very good with the new divers. Lots... More

Bubbles Below is in my opinion the #1 dive operator on the island of Kauai. Linda and her crew treat everyone like family, offering professional training, dive guiding, and more! Her respect for the sea, and her passion for sharing her vast knowledge of the ocean environment, makes a day on, and under, the water with them something that will... More

Everyone we dealt with was super-knowledgeable and professional. Great captain (we saw dolphins and turtles galore and got a ton of local knowledge about the coastline and the island). Great DM (fantastic at picking sites and finding cool stuff, very focused on diver safety). Great owner. This is not a cookie cutter/we treat everyone like a number dive operation. They... More

Diving with a large monk seal was lot's of fun. The trip over and back not so fun! Two and half hours getting... More

First of all, when I called and asked what size boat they had, Joe stated it was a "45 foot boat". He must also work for another charter and was confused. The boat is a 34 foot boat that could use a little work. Second I requested a 100 cu.in tank for the first dive down to @ a 100... More

Two weeks staying at a great house in Poipu, seven days of diving (two to Nihau) with Bubbles Below and the only downsides were the wife having a cold and having to leave and not return for at least nine months. It continually amazes me how Linda can be so enthusiastic about the underwater sights after all these years...but she... More

We were scuba certified over our vacation and the books were sent ahead so we could study prior to arriving. The instruction was low key and top notch did our check out dives at Koloa landing.
