Reef Pirates provides an exceptional experience that was exciting, developing, and safe! You will not be disappointed!! I researched many dive shops on island to get open water certified. Reef Pirates won my business because of three things: 1) Responsiveness - Bud and his team responded to all of my emails within hours!! Leading up to my class dates I... More

The guys at Reef Pirates Diving are a really fun, professional, and talented group of divers and educators. My wife and I chose them for getting our scuba certification because they promise groups of 6 or less. When I booked my appointment, the management found booking availabilities where it was just for my wife and I. This made the learning... More

Before traveling to Oahu I contacted half a dozen operations looking for a good fit. Price varied from $75/2 tank dive to $150. That was a big spread! However, I know that just basing a decision on price is never the right answer when it comes to diving, so I headed to Trip Advisor to help me narrow it down.... More

My colleagues and I were on business in Oahu, Hawaii for 2 weeks in May 2015. Since we are all certified divers we decided to dive on our day off.

We were staying a little far and opted for the afternoon dives, unfortunately there was a new diver getting his open water and our dive guide was his instructor and most of the dive we were left on our own as the student did his certification. I know it was advertized as such and the morning dives were more for... More

In mid-April we completed our advanced open water certification with Bud and Mir. I've dived in many places all over the world, and Reef Pirates was as well-run a dive outfit as I've encountered.

Beginner diver out with a more advanced group to two locations. Thorough briefing and instructions, and great care for safety. This enabled me to focus on enjoying the natural wildlife like turtles, eels, flounder and schools of other fish. Would do this again on subsequent trip! Helpful and frienldy.
