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. Their experience means unsurpassed wildlife encounters and dive memories that will never leave you.Kauai Down Under is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort. To have earned this rating, our company has demonstrated excellence in providing traveling scuba divers with memorable dive experiences, phenomenal customer service, an exceptional diver safety record and focus on underwater environmental awareness.You can begin your PADI Open Water Diver Certification, PADI Adventure Diver Certification or PADI Advanced Open Water Certification by completing PADI’s online e-learning program directly from our website in the comfort of your home.

We signed up for an introductory 2 tank dive with our 13 year old son. Kayla, our instructor was fantastic, relentlessly positive and relaxed. Although scuba diving was not a good fit for me, Kayla's patience, acceptance my current level of ability, and presentation of micro-skills, was reassuring and allowed me to make repeated attempts. In the end I chose... More

Two thumbs up and five stars for Chris at Kauai Down Under. I had signed up for the introductory scuba class. We met at Koloa Landing at the ocean. There are only four people per instructor so you get a lot of personalized instruction. Some people can do fine in the ocean for their first scuba experience. I was not... More

First shore dive for family of 3 adults. Guillame and his team of training guides (Lucas and ?) made a the two tank trip fun. They were very professional in getting us in water, showing marine life and taking care of one son who had issue with pressure after first dive. We wish we had more time to take another... More

This was a Junior Open Water Dive Certification for my 12-year old daughter that I set up with Brittany in advance--three dives to complete. Thought this would be a fun thing to accomplish while vacationing on Kauai. I was tagging along to share the experience and take photos of the dives underwater. On the morning of the dive, we met...

We are a group of 3 from Greenville, South Carolina. We did the dive at Tunnels with Guillaume and Michelle, and they did an amazing job with instruction. They explained everything well and made sure we knew everything about the dive. They provided snacks and drinks and provided all of the gear we needed for the day. On top of... More

My wife and I are both certified divers with several dives under our belt. We looked for an outfit that could take our 15-yr old son on an intro dive. Very happy that we found Kauai Down Under with Guillaume as our divemaster. Guillaume was extremely patient with our son and another intro diver. Spent about an hour doing a... More

I took the Advanced Open Water which was a 2 day course, my husband came along for the same dives, I had Guillaume who was an excellent instructor (& dive master), I ended up learning more than I expected from the course -- thanks to Guillaume's instruction. We both enjoyed the dives with Guillaume very much, not only he kept... More

My wife, Carla, and I decided to complete our open water diving certification when we were on Kauai the week of May 7-14. We chose to do this because our intro dive last November (see previous review on Trip Advisor) was so outstanding, we wanted to do more this time. We communicated with Josh and set things up with Brittany... More

We planned to take a non-diving friend on her first intro dive with KDU. She was very nervous and had all those little issues that first time divers have.
