We dove the wreck of the YO-257 and Turtle Cove (or Canyon, something like that) and had 2 really good dives with Devin. He gave us a good dive briefing before entering the water, was able to point out some of the local wildlife and generally took great care of us. He also took a few really good pictures of... More

My girlfriend and I were told about this company during our stay on the North Shore so we hit them up. We ended up doing 4 dives with the legend Devin. He was very professional but also really easy going at the same time. The best part of it is the exclusivity of the Dives as Devin an the crew... More

My son and I dove the Sea Tiger today. Devin was great. He knows what he's doing and has the perfect mixture of giving us freedom underwater yet keeping an eye on us. Highly recommend.

We had a dive with Mike. He made my husband and I take our snorkels off our mask, and then stole it from us! Never saw my snorkel again. We had a horrible dive! He only took us close to shore and we paid $200. He was very rude the whole time. This business is not trust worthy. They like... More

Aloha Adventuristtraveler, That sounds terrible! However, I believe you are mistaken. There has never been a Mike here. Our staff would never ask you to remove a snorkel, and we certainly wouldn't keep it. We have dozens already. I imagine you are thinking of another company. More

Dove twice with Deep Ecology on the North Shore (Sharks Cove). Both Nick and Devon did a great job. Quickly assessed the group dynamic and capabilities, and then tailored a dive that. Made sure the kids were being challenged but not put into any danger, mom and I weren't nervous at all. Nick was patient with my daughter when she... More

Great dive but disappointed that we didn't get to actually dive on the North Shore due to runoff from hurricane Essel. Devon was excellent, very low key but safety minded. We especially liked the emphasis on being environmentally conscious and protecting the dive site for future use.

Thanks for that! I had a great time diving with you. I too was a little bummed we weren't able to get into the North Shore. Well just have to try again next time! More

Deep Ecology on the North Shore was awesome! We stayed on the North Shore, so I wanted a scuba company close by. There are some North Shore sites where only Deep Ecology goes. The boat is small, with Devon, our dive guide, and four divers. It’s a nice, small size that meant we could all stick together. I went on... More

I went on a dive to Sharks Cove organized by Deep Ecology. All the staff at this place are very friendly and graceful, and always willing to help and answer questions. Will definitely check them out again next time I visit O'ahu - which I hope is soon!

Excellent PADI 5-Star dive shop. They offer boat dives twice a week and daily shore dives at Shark's Cove in the summer. Even though Shark's Cove is busy with snorkelers and other divers, it is a remarkably outstanding dive. The lava tube swim-throughs are the highlight. We saw many fish and eels and even a sea turtle. We did 5... More

My husband (non-diver) and I rented a beach house on the North Shore for two weeks and during that time I intended to complete my advanced open water certification. There was a glowing recommendation for Deep Ecology in the literature left by the owners of the vacation rental so I decided to head into Haleiwa to check it out. The... More
