The conditions were ripe for a great day - perfect weather, amazing diving spots. It was elevated to one of the best diving days I've ever had by the small, friendly charter size and great experience with Captain Earl and DM Chris. Both were friendly, safe and knowledgeable. The dive briefings were thorough and underwater Chris showed us around some... More

I looked around at some of the other dive companies, and this group seems to have the most variety when it comes to dive locations. I went on three charters with them (Na Pali, South Shore, and Niihau), and the diving was some of the best i have ever been on. Everyone on the boat were extremely knowledgeable, and made... More

I made a reservation with Bubbles Below about one month before my visit to Kauai. When I arrived on Kauai I called to confirm my dive arrangements and somehow the reservation had been written down for the wrong day and Bubbles Below could not honor my initial reservation. After an exchange of calls and emails with the owner of Bubbles... More

I dove with Bubbles with my family and this is one of our best dive. The equipments were well, the places in Nihau were fantastic, we saw a lot of monk seals, sharks, turtles, use nitrox, and we had a great day. Capt. Earl manage safe the boat under rough crossed seas, and the owner/dive master Linda Marsh was a... More

For e first time ever (as noted by the boat captain) their engine wouldn't start at the start of the dive. However Chris helped make a great couple shore dives with us, turning a bad situation into a pretty darn good one. He was a great dive master and master of go with the flow, even looking for an alternate... More

The folks that run Bubbles Below are pleasant enough, but they really need to offer a dive platform that has better creature comforts. If you sign up for either the Nihau or Mana Crack dives you will be spending a lot of travel time on the boat. Not having a toilet on board or a proper canopy to block the... More

Bubbles Below was able to squeeze my fiance and I in when another company had technical difficulties and had to cancel. The crew was jovial and the equipment was okay. My dive computer had a low battery and I ended up having to follow the dive guide. You barely have to lift a finger. There wasn't much individual attention but... More

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
