Of our 13 dives on Kauai, 8 of them were with Fathom Five Divers; four boat and four shore dives. (The other five were specialty dives that were only offered by another dive operator.) Jeannette was fantastic at both Koloa Landing and Tunnels shore dives. She was very patient with our brand new divers. Tell her you want to see an AFT. Beau, Anthony and Jordon were our boat crews and did a fantastic job. We wouldn't have seen half the creatures we did without them point them out. Fathom Five came highly recommended for good reason. They know their dive sites and are great with all skill levels. And there prices were better than most and came with a multi dive discount. A well rounded team that I highly recommend. Will dive with them again when we make it back to Kauai.

My son and I have done a few dives with Fathom Five. We have had experiences with several Dive Masters and Captains and all of them have been terrific to work and dive with. Patient, professional, knowledgable, capable, trustworthy are only a few words to describe the experiences we have had with this dive shop. I oove this group of people!!

Just had a fabulous dive at Tunnels with Fathom Five. DM Chris was stellar - he guided us in and out of the tunnels through a gorgeous underwater landscape pointing out black coral, eels, bluefin trevally, lobster, and many nudibranchs, even a grouper and eel cooperatively hunting. He navigated us through the tunnels, swim-throughs, channels, and crevices with great skill and made this dive exhilarating and memorable. HIGHLY recommended!

Just had a fantastic experience, start-to-finish with Fathom 5 divers. The booking process was efficient and informative, right over the phone. All disclosures, requirements, and options for our 4-person (family) Niihau dive were provided, and I am glad we were encouraged to take the nitrox class because this allowed for longer dives in an extraordinary place (see below). We had a problem with our dive party: our daughter got sick and had to cancel at the last minute. We found her replacement after the dive shop closed, and emailed and left a message at Fathom 5. Loni texted me AFTER HOURS to get the info on our replacement diver (our son’s good friend). Everything was ready in the morning for our full party, thanks Loni! The most important part, of course, is the dive trip itself. Captain Jordan and Divemaster Anthony were an amazing team. Jordan took us across the deep water channel like a champ, and Anthony’s emphasis on safety put us all at ease so we could focus on enjoying our dives. The equipment provided was highest-quality, new, and in excellent working order. ScubaPro, need I say more? Now for the very-most-important part: Diving with Anthony was like participating in a master class on exploring underwater ecosystems. His attention to the wildlife dynamics during the dive resulted in us having truly extraordinary encounters with wildlife making this, by far, the best dive we have ever done off Kauai. A less attentive divemaster would have missed the cues that led us into amazing experiences with dolphins, sharks, seals and numerous other creatures. As it was, Anthony gave my family a gift we will cherish for a lifetime! The ride back from Niihau was bumpy, luckily the management at Fathom 5 has empowered their expert crew to provide for the comfort of their divers! The special BB seating made the rough trek as comfortable as possible. Jordan kept us moving in some big swells, and we never felt unsafe because of his skilled driving. This was my third dive with Fathom 5, they are now 3/3 great dives in my book, and most highly recommended. I can’t see diving with another company, best luck getting a reservation with them!

Two days of diving: 1. Discover scuba for my wife who was quite nervous - Michelle was her DM and she made my wife’s experience an outstanding one. Super patient and chill! Can’t thank her enough 2. 2 tank dive at Tunnels with Chris for me. Super chill and excellent dives. Chris pointed out a lot of small nudibranchs I never would’ve seen and got to see two conger eels. This has been my second trip driving with Fathom Five and I’ll be back ✌🏼
