I got certified in 2005 (I am a dive instructor now) with another shop/operator and dove with them again in 2007 and have nothing but great things to say about them, but as with many operations in the tropics, staff turnover is relatively high. That shop has no one left that I knew and they recently just got a new... More

I did a wreck dive in deep water and then reef dive. Ocean was really rough on surface but Nate prepped me well. Although certified, I was given great instruction by Nate. He watched over me but not a mother hen except when he needed to be. Lol He gave me great feedback after each dive as well. His assistance... More

It was our first dive and we were assigned Nate as our guide. I have nothing but good things to say about Nate! He was chill, funny, and extremely patient with us. He made sure to only load our brains with the essentials and promised to take care of the rest so that we can have FUN on our first... More

We booked online before flying out to Hawaii and also spoke to them on the phone a couple of times. If the attitude on the phone was any indication of the operation and the people, we were in for a great time....and I was right. Their pre-dive communications were great. Nate and Erica picked us up at the hotel and... More

My new bride and I decided on doing a scuba dive while on our honeymoon and after reading reviews on several different scuba companies decided to try Living Ocean Scuba and we were not disappointed in the least!!! Dave was actually early in picking us up at our hotel...not always easy to do in Waikiki. His positive attitude and demeanor... More

From the email exchanges/booking to the actual dives, everything was perfect. Went out with Dave for 2 tanks and he was a great dive master. Great intro to the equipment which was solid, good dive briefings, set up our equipment, had snacks, etc. Lots of discover divers on the boat so he made sure we were first in the water... More

Went with Dave as instructor, for a two tanks dive; shipwreck and reef. I booked by phone quite easily. He picked me on time, explained the diving and all the fished perfectly and he also took care of all the equipment. He was very helpful all the time. During the first dive, one of the divers had some problem and... More

Nate and Dave were excellent dive masters! They made the trips very worthwhile. I initially booked a single trip. After diving with Nate, I signed up for 3 more trips last week. The diving was especially phenomenal at Sea Tiger, with large turtles, eels and even a white tip reef shark. Just a first rate experience all around.

Went scuba diving for the first time with Nate. He was a great instructor and made sure everything was okay before and after I got into the water. Got to see some really cool sea life (turtles, eels, octopus, sleeping sharks, fish) and take fantastic photos. Water was a bit choppy that day though and I don't usually get nauseous.... More

I'd never done any scuba diving or even snorkelling before this, so I was quite nervous about this whole thing. It didn't help that the waves were a bit choppy that day. Thankfully the instructor Nate was awfully patient with me and once I stopped panicking the experience was really good! He made sure everyone was okay before, during and... More
