About Explore Kauai Scuba
Come explore the enchanting Na Pali Coast above and below sea level. The waterfalls and sea cliffs rise up to 4,000 feet above sea caves, that are boat accessible. After exploring above water, we’ll leave gravity and scuba dive into the underwater world with exotic reef fish and green sea turtles. Unlike larger boats, our 26 foot Zodiac style boat is the best way to get up close and personal.

We spent two weeks on Kauai and dove with EKS. Mana Crack, Niihau, West Shore, South Shore and on and on. Each charter was excellent. Jessie and Nick do everything to make sure you have great dives and experience the island. Simply the best.

Excellent Ni'ihau trip! It's always great diving with EKS, but this week we had a trip to Ni'ihau which turned into something special and included pilot whales and dolphins on the trip over, sharks and monk seals at vertical awareness and an outstanding dive at keyhole. Nick Jessie are excellent at judging the conditions and the sea to decide which sites are best for the day. However, what makes diving with them really special is the fun and relaxed atmosphere on the boat. It's more than just a norman group boat trip, it's a social experience for those who love the ocean, and it's great to get to know everybody on the boat and share this love. Also, EKS works so well with divers of varying experience. Jessie and Nick are incredibly knowledgeable about Hawai'i wildlife and it's habitat and combined with their professionalism, efficiency and experience makes for an exciting and safe day for everybody.

I have lived on Kauai for many years and am so grateful that my first trip to Niihau was with Nick and Jessie of Explore Kauai Scuba! Their knowledge of the dive sites and the ocean conditions made me feel safe and comfortable. The first tank was a sweet wall dive along the pinnacle of Lehua Rock. We were immediately greeted by sandbar sharks and a huge group of pyramid and pennant butterfly fishes. It was quite a show! But our second tank was the real treat. And Captain Nick knew just where to go! After going through several caves and being escorted by a watchful monk seal, we were treated with the TV cave...a large cavern with a perfectly flat vertical ceiling which opens out into open water so it appears like you are viewing a huge TV screen. It was incredible! All I can add is that their 27 foot RHIB was comfortable and clean...and both Nick and Jessie were super helpful with our gear. Having been out with several dive operations here on the island, I would highly recommend Nick and Jessie of EKS for a fun and professional experience!

What a great adventure to go out to Niihau with Nick and Jessie! The ride across the channel was smooth, the Zodiac well equipped and clean. First tank dive guided by Scott Bacon (Scuba Instructor and marine enthusiast) along Vertical Awareness, where we were immediately inspected by Sandbar Sharks. Then cruising along the wall to be immersed in schools of Pyramid Butterfly fish, entertained by dancing Pendants, and dazzled by the colors of Nudibranchs. Second tank led us - after a generous interval - to the “TV room” past the Arch, an amazing display of colors in the waters, hanging soft corals from the roofs of caves, exiting swim- throughs. Did I mention Monk Seals that hang out on ledges underwater letting out bellows to define their territory? There is too much to tell, such an epIc dive and experience.....I can truly recommend it to any avid diver. Thank you to Explore Kauai with Nick and Jessie!
