My wife and I was on our honey moon. We occasionally found Reef Pirates Diving online, and enrolled in the Beginner's program. This was the first time we went to scuba, so we basically had no experience. In addition, my wife cannot even swim. Our instructors Dan and Mia are very professional, nice and patient. We had a really good... More

The equipment was perfect and gave me no concerns. The group size was only six which helped me adjust and feel safe. On the dive... More

I have no hesitation in recommending Reef Pirates Diving for anyone interested in scuba diving in Oahu. They can cater for all skill levels and the small group environment allows that personalised experience, lacking with some of the bigger groups. There were 5 in our group, some with more than 25 years experience of diving and ourselves being the most... More

I just finished my advanced diver certification. Had a great time. Saw lots of wildlife even though the currents and tides weren't great (high surf warnings each day). Highly recommend--again.

I have been diving several times since I've been on the island, I think this was the best experience that I've had. I was working on my rescue diving certification and instructors were the best. I think I have definitely found my group with Reef Pirates.

The wreck dives were great. Was like a scene of a James Bond movie when the submarine loaded with tourists came cruising by waving and taking photos. The diving was good, turtles everywhere. The hire gear was in great condition
