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.

Aloha Sam - Thank you for your review! The Sea Cave is one of our best dive sites and the Corsair is one of those "must do" dive sites - we are so glad you were able to dive both of them with us. Captain Dan and Instructor Bud let us know they had a good time diving with you... More

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!

Such an amazing and caring group of people at Reef Pirates! None of us in the group have ever scuba dived before. They made sure that each and everyone of us were comfortable from the start till the end. The first dive down will be a bit intense since you're getting used to the whole "song and dance" of your...

Great experience with a good group. I felt they were very safety conscious. As a first time diver, they kept a close eye on me.

Aloha Gregory and thank you for your review! Safety is our #1 concern at Reef Pirates. Customer service is a very close second but we believe that we can't give our customers the service they deserve without safety being our first priority. We hope you get the chance to dive with us again! Mahalo! the Reef Pirates Ohana More

The dive experience was great. Small boat but not too small. No "cattle herd" experience to be seen. Bud and his crew were outstanding.
