Owner description: My name is Alex Mason. I am a PADI Master Instructor which is the highest instructor rating you can achieve from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. I have been teaching SCUBA-diving in Hawaii for over 13 years with a perfect safety record. I am able to teach all courses from Discover SCUBA diving all the way through to dive master, I am also qualified to teach 18 different specialties.If you are looking for a small company that takes pride in what it does, you have definitely found the right place! I take out very small groups: a maximum of four SCUBA divers per diving Instructor for both the Open Water Certification course and our Discover SCUBA diving ADVENTURE! My maximum ratio for licensed SCUBA divers is 6 to 1; however 90% of the time we have between two and four SCUBA divers per diving Instructor.This does not mean I can not manage larger groups; I definitely can. For larger groups, I would employ dive masters or instructors to help me best suit your needs, giving you the best ADVENTURE ever. I will still manage the day and make sure everything runs smoothly, as I am always present with you on the boat. My company is small enough to care; my management skills are excellent so I can organize any size group.

We really enjoyed our trip back in September 2012 (yes, I am very tardy with this review). Looking for a dive company, I looked at the top 4 on this site and selected Alex. I am glad we did. Both my friend and I are certified divers and wanted a boat dive to a wreak. Alex picked us up at... More

I am a seasoned diver, and I was looking for a dive guide who's reviews weren't primarily written by "Discover" and student divers. Alex had many excellent reviews from certified divers, so I went with him. He didn't treat me like an inexperienced diver, and took me out even though I was his only diver that trip, and he wasn't...

We opted to do a wreck and shallow dive. The dives were great. We were rusty since we haven't been diving in a few years and we forgot our card. Alex took care of everything and even called to get our certification. He had all the gear ready and does this everyday. He is very direct and a bit off... More

Went out with Alex's Aquatic Adventures on 2 days for a wreck and shallow dive. He set me up with Tom and I had a great time. I highly recommend Alex's Aquatic Adventure.

Really enjoyed Alex's straightforward, courteous, and humorous nature. I spent two days diving with Alex to earn my advanced certification. It was a blast! He's got a keen eye for helping spot wildlife (spotted an octopus), and makes sure that you have a positive experience.

Any time I am in Hawaii I look up Alex to go dive. It is always a pleasure to dive with him. He is always professional and courteous. He points interesting things and always makes sure the dive is enjoyable. He makes sure that every diver understands their equipment and knows how to use it. A very knowledgeable diver who... More

If you are looking for a right diving instructor ... ALEX is your man. I think I'm the biggest paranoid in the world, always thinking something terrible is going to happen, sharks, I'm will drown etc etc and etc. When Alex was done with us we couldn't feel more comfortable in the water, didn't rush us, let us take our...

Went diving with my partner on our holiday with Alex and he was a pleasure to have teach me dive. He worked with me to overcome my issues and came out with my open water diving certification. He has the best patience and a good way of teaching people, I would recommend you don't dive with anyone else in Hawaii... More
