My sister and I bought a Groupon for an eco-snorkeling tour with Pearl Harbor Divers and we had a wonderful experience! We were lucky enough to be the only two people who registered for our tour, so we ended up having a private tour experience. Lacey Taylor was our tour guide and she was phenomenal! She had extensive knowledge about the island and the sea life, as well as water safety and the patterns of waves. Also, she helped calm me down when I was short of breath from trying to breathe too quickly through the snorkel tube. And I mustn't forget, we saw two sea turtles and a few rare fish (one was a blue puffer, but I can't remember the names of the others)!
We learned at the end of our tour that Lacey would be transferring to Fathom Five Ocean Quest in Kauai, and if I were to travel to another island and try scuba diving, I would most definitely go through Fathom Five and request Lacey. Yes, she was that awesome!
Even though Lacey is no longer with Pearl Harbor Divers, I have no doubt that their other tour guides would create a comparable experience for you. A company's personality is often detectable simply by calling them and even when I made the reservation a couple months out they were quite friendly and helpful.
My sister and I encourage you to check them out while in Oahu!

Thank you very much for your kind words and thank you for coming out with us. We were sad to see Lacey leave. However, the rest of the dive staff would be happy to take you back out snorkeling or even to try diving, if you are feeling adventurous.
