In the Hawaiian language, Aloha means affection, love, peace and compassion. Aloha has also come to be used as an English greeting to say hello, goodbye, and “I LOVE TO DIVE”. Ok, maybe we added the last part! We are pretty sure, however, that the state of Hawaii was nicknamed the “Aloha State”, due to our staffs’ spirit! From first time to advanced divers, the Kauai Down Under Dive Team is all about making your diving experience truly memorable! We are passionate about what we do, the extraordinary island that we live on, and the abundant waters that surround it.

Amazing tunnels reef dive!! The formations were stunning. In addition to the beautiful and dramatic formations we swam with an extremely curious monk seal! Our dive master, Dave, was hilarious and informative. He took care of everything from setting up the tanks, BCS's wet suits and all other gear to providing snacks and drinks. A great experience. We highly recommend... More

I spent the first 2 weeks of March 2014 on the south side of Kauai, and dove with Kauai Down Under (KDU) for 10 dives throughout my stay. From the first to the last dive, KDU, and specifically dive master/instructor Greg Adams, took very special care to ensure each dive experience was exceptional. Weather, winds, wave activity and water clarity... More
