Guys we're great. Dive spot could have been better, but than scuba is the only thing where Hawaii lags behind Carib and Mexico.

Called up the shop after getting a recommendation from a waiter at Cholo's right up the road. Got setup with a discover Scuba dive, guys I'm the shop were well informed and answered all our question as this was our first dive ever. We were staying in Waikiki the day of the dive so travel was no big deal. Parked... More

Deep Ecology started giving surfing lessons recently and I have to say that my Kekai was personable and very practical. In a very short amount of time you learn the fundamentals of surfing and feel completely comfortable in the water. If you surf with Kekai you should feel confident to go out again and hone up your surfing skills whether... More

I contacted these guys on the phone and they seemed really cool, so I was looking forward to diving with them and taking my teen son. We were staying about 20 minutes away at Turtle Bay so their location was close and I had read up on the North Shore diving so I was excited. When I got to the... More

I recently scheduled an open water class with Deep Ecology in the beginning of January 2014. I have to say, I was impressed from the courtesy to the professionalism and to the fun I experienced with the shop. I missed a class that kept me from completing my cert a few years back, and DE caught me right up to... More

The staff at Deep Ecology went out of their way to make our PADI Scuba lessons enjoyable. Pat, the owner, and Brian, the manager, had to scramble to arrange for the second day as huge waves meant everyone was canceled the one day and this being Christmas there were no open slots. Nick, the dive instructor, really was caring and... More

We were in Oahu over Thanksgiving and had a dive booked with them. Weather conditions were terrible and our first dive was cancelled. Pat and Tim were great and rescheduled us for the next day. Weather was terrible and second dive was also cancelled. They did their best trying to accommodate us. We will be back on Oahu in January... More

I had a fantastic time diving with Deep Ecology this past week. I was visiting Oahu and took a few days to visit the North Shore. The diving trip that day was a boat dive to the western part of the island - we dove the LCU wreck (landing craft unit) and Mahaka Caverns. Our dive master was Tyler, who... More

Great little shop. Nice Eco T-shirts and gear for divers too. When we were there, they were taking care of an injured sea turtle. The staff were friendly and courteous. I got two great T-shirts and my husband found a great cap, all nicely priced.

The fact that Deep Ecology re-fitted their craft with an engine that puts less waste into the marine environment compared to all other diving companies illustrates their commitment to minimising their (and our) impact on the underwater places that we love. Add to this the fact that the owner, shop assistants, and dive crew have absolutely fantastic attitudes and are... More
