This was my first attempt at diving and have to say how unbelievable it was. Not sure where to begin, but I'll start with the thorough explanation of how to use the equipment and what to expect on my first dive. Then I have to say how friendly my instructor was and the captain of the boat as well. As... More

I booked online sometime ahead of our stay in Oahu. Bud responded straight away confirming our dives and sorting out exactly what we wanted to do. A courtesy pick up was provided, on time and from our hotel. From the off the guys are straight into ensuring your safety is paramount with a good briefing and talk on the days... More

OK , so i dive every month, in cold water with a dry suit. I have dove many places in the world. So when it comes to diving the way you want to dive and the dive outfit making that a priority, these guys win HANDS DOWN. Note, I had Bryan (?) pick me up and essentially take only me... More

An AMAZING experience & know that SAFETY comes first here. I will try to keep this as short as possible, but it'll be hard with how great this place is! Side Note: I almost never write reviews online, but this place deserves the praise! My friend & I, both certified, haven't dove in about 10+ & 2+ years respectively. We... More

Our family of four from Australia, including a 17 and 14 y.o., dived with Reef Pirates recently. We are all certified divers and I was attracted to the small group aspect of Reef Pirates. We dived the Corsair and the Sea Cave. The dive master Pete and boat skipper Dan were very friendly, courteous and knowledgable, and Pete made sure... More

I have nearly 200 dives under my weight belt, and know a few things about the sport! I also love SHARkS and the Pirates did not disappoint! With a small passenger size of 6 aboard a comfortable vessel, everyone received personal attention, and we were able to make it in the pool quickly and safely. Bud took us down a... More

My Reef Pirates experience was great! I obtained my PADI Open Water certification with Bud, the Reef Pirates owner. This was accomplished over three afternoons after doing most of the studying beforehand. Bud was a great instructor! The pace of learning and demonstrating skills was comfortable for me, and I felt well-informed and safe. On my four certification dives, which... More

Even with the change of ownership, Reef Pirates has continued to maintain a top-notch diving experience. Bud and crew have a no-nonesense, no-frills, and no-b.s. approach, which is just the way I like it. I went on 4 dives with them this week, and throughout the staff was helpful and courteous and knowledgeable. And, I really appreciate their "safety first"... More

Just been out diving with Pete this morning, picked up from my hotel on time, two great dives, really friendly people. I left my wetsuit behind, and they very kindly dropped it off at my hotel for me, thanks Bud! Would definitely use them again and would recommend them without hesitation, thanks.

I've been to Oahu multiple times and have gone diving with different groups. I was very specific on the dives I wanted to do and both companies had recommended Reef Pirates to me. I think that already says a lot... The first dive we did was Sea Caverns. Exactly that I wanted to do! They say it's pretty rare to... More
