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. Much has already been said in prior reviews, but I'll touch on a few highlights and observations. Marine life (both above the water and below) and... More

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.

I'm not sure if this is the company motto for Reef Pirates Diving, but it probably should be. This is a hands-on operation, with divers ranging from Open Water students to those with lots of diving experience. No matter the level of experience, you're going to be well looked after at Reef Pirates. The dive boat is accommodates a max... More

Aloha Su and thank you for your Review! While it is not our "official" motto, it is pretty darn close.... and it is the way we want to run our business. While diving is all about fun, you really can't have fun if you are worried about your safety so we make that our priority. While other operations would put... More

My husband and I decided to get our advanced open water certification while on vacation last week. We completed 6 dives over the course of 3 days. I have to say that this was the most memorable, exciting, and best diving that I have ever done. Our instructor, Pete, was amazing; very laid back yet extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He...

Our experience started with our shuttle pick-up in Waikiki. Lee was our shuttle driver and later dive guide. He was friendly and prompt. The best part for me is that he was patient. After picking up another diver, we had a quick ride to the shop and boat. At the shop we had paperwork and gear waiting for us. Meanwhile,... More

Aloha and thank you for your detailed review! We always put safety of our guests and crew first when choosing a dive site and as you mentioned, the safe dive sites had strong currents so we are glad Lee and Cpt Steve made the wise decision not to attempt one of the deep dives. We appreciate your understanding of our... More

My daughter (11yo) and I dove with Reef Pirates while on vacation. I specifically picked the Pirates because of the size of the operation. I wanted my daughter's first boat dive to be personal experience instead of being a 'cattle boat' type of dive. It was the perfect experience for her first boat dive. Lee and Dan were awesome and...

A friend and I rode along with Reef Pirates while my husband got certified. They were very accommodating for those of us who wanted to dive and those who just wanted to snorkel. I loved being able to take photographs of my husband's experience for him, meet his instructor, and be there when he finally accomplished his goal. I also... More
