A friend and I did a deep dive to the Corsair and a shallow reef dive with Reef Pirates. Bud and Captain Kaina (?) were very friendly and also professional. I hadn't been diving in three years, but they made me feel very comfortable. Bud did a fantastic job catering to a range of abilities, and both the dives were... More

Great group of dive instructors! It was my first time diving and they made sure that everyone was safe and had a great time. Saw some turtles up close and personal, some lonely old Hawaiian statues and tons of fish. Even when issues came up, they handled the situations very well. I can't wait to go again!

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing time with the crew. The tour is awesome as it is private with only 4 people total on the tour, so each of us receive the attention we need. Peter is very through about the safety and the use of diving equipment. When we finally hit water, it was very fun and exciting.... More

I did 2 days of morning dives with reef piratea and they were amazing. Bud and his crew know what they are doing. Bud asked us what we specifically wanted to see and catered to everyones wants. On our second day the current was so strong that we couldn't dive the desired spots but the crew still made sure we... More

I initially only had 2 dives booked in with Reef Pirates. A deep dive to the corsair and a shallow reef dive. They were so amazing that I booked in another morning of diving! The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and the small groups make it so much more enjoyable. Plus heaps of turtles!

My girlfriend and I had 2 amazing dives with owner Bud to Corsair and the Sea cave. Our boat captain Dan was well skilled and got us to and from the dive sites safely. The gear was great and look near new and would definitely choose them again.

Had a great time going scuba diving with my family with Reef Pirates. Bud, Mir, and Captain Dan were great with helping and teaching us how to dive. We've never been diving before and for most of our group it was the first time in Hawaii. They made us feel calm, comfortable, and confident that we would be just fine... More

The website said there was availability so i called at 5 30AM. The person who answered could not be bothered to call the shuttle service to add another pickup.

Aloha - I am afraid you have the wrong dive shop. I have checked our phone logs and do not show an incoming call at or around 5:30 am any time in the past several weeks that was answered - we do not answer prior to 8:00 am HST. We also do not have a shuttle service. Our pickups are... More

We were to do one deep & one shallow, but could not do deep due to very strong currents & ended up doing shallow dives. As it went out the dives turned out be excellent. A lot due to the owner herself who guided us personally throughout the dives. I would highly recommend this dive center. All new equipment. Guys... More

Aloha Nalin - We are so glad you enjoyed your dives with Reef Pirates! We would love to have taken you to the Corsair (WWII Fighter plane) but we ALWAYS put safety first. Perhaps you can come diving with us again and we will have more cooperative currents. Mahalo for your review! the Reef Pirates Ohana More

Dived with Reef Pirates two morning with private charter. Used some of their equipment which was in excellent condition. They were very punctual in every aspect and the whole operation was flawless. I would certainly dive with them again. Thank you Bud for two very nice days!
