Owner description: The “ALOHA SPIRIT” is what the staff at Kauai Down Under is all about! In the Hawaiian language, Aloha means affection, love, peace and compassion. Aloha has also come to be used as an English greeting to say hello, goodbye, and “I LOVE TO DIVE”. Ok, maybe we added the last part! We are pretty sure, however, that the state of Hawaii was nicknamed the “Aloha State”, due to our staffs’ spirit! From first time to advanced divers, the Kauai Down Under Dive Team is all about making your diving experience truly memorable! We are passionate about what we do, the extraordinary island that we live on, and the abundant waters that surround it. From the endemic species living in our reefs, to unique lava tubes and reef formations, Kauai Down Under can help you experience all that Kauai Scuba Diving has to offer. Our PADI-trained professional scuba instructors have been hand-picked from the best of the best. They lead quality tours and offer fascinating briefings which include Hawaiian history and lore. Your surface intervals will be filled with chatter about the critters that you encountered and how amazing the reef structures are. You will be amazed by how well our instructors know these reefs.

“Super Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband has been diving for a few years with our son. Now that we are empty nesters, he signed me up for the discovery dive with Kauai Down Under Dive Team. Ryan met us and was really easy to understand and very comfortable to dive with. I had no apprehensions at all. I think my husband was pretty impressed too!!!

“Hosker Family dive experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We are a family of six and have just returned from Kauai where we went diving Kauai Down Under Dive Team. The experience, from start to finish was excellent. We did 8 dives in total with Greg who was very well organised, extremely professional and we felt totally looked after in every way.

“Best night dive experience ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I was soooooo craving for a night dive and found that Kuai Downunder was doing it every night whereas the other dive shop around did it only Wednesday nights. I also asked them that if I was alone would they cancel? NOPE and indeed I had a night dive all by myself with the dive master Ryan.
Had the best experience ever. I've never seen so many creatures in one dive more then at the landing (shore dive) including day and night dives. I did 2 dives and saw squid, eels, schrimp, 7 turtles!!!!! all sleeping, so cute! a sea hair!!! cucumbers, crawling sea stars, etc.!
My favourite bit of night dives is going under when it is sunset and coming up to soooo many stars! The whole milky way! Anyway I had a blast.
Ryan was great at pointing things out and made sure I had a great time.
Enjoy guys! Happy diving!

“Fantastic Dive Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I can see why this company doesn't advertise, they don't need to. I met the owner Josh and dove with Derek Budde his right hand man and amazing instructor. We felt totally confident and safe.
Derek was with us at all times and made sure we saw a host of unique fish, sea turtles, etc...
Can't say enough, can't wait to go again with them!

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I have been diving in many different locations and I found kauai down under one of the best ran operations. They were very attentive to our specific needs. Equipment was well maintained they didn't charge extra for the use of their dive computers. They had chairs setup for us on shore dives and brought the snacks that we liked. We took an advanced class and a nitrox certification and they gave us very reasonable rates. I admit that I had some trouble getting into the zodiac but the staff was very patient with me and helpful. Great experience everything was first class.
