I couldn't recommend this company more. After three years off from diving I decided to reactivate. This meant doing ELearning and performing a few in water skills. There was zero hassle with the entire process. The staff were professional and very polite. My dive instructor Dominic was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and a blast to dive with. We had two beautiful dives to complete my experience. Can't wait to go back!

I took my son on his first Introduction to Scuba with Dive Kauai Scuba Center, I was already certified. Our instructor was Logan and he was absolutely awesome. Super calm and confident with perfect instruction. All of the beginers were very comfortable. Got to see a lot of neat fish and Giant turtles and watch my son experience diving.
Great experience I highly recommend. Thanks Logan!

Saw lots of turtles, great dive to take my teenager on. This was a very good shore dive. I have been on shore dives before that were of nearly as good. Dive Kauai was very friendly and easy to work with.

I wanted to squeeze in a couple dives during a recent trip to Kauai and specifically was interested in doing some shore dives instead of boat dives. I wasn't able to book far advance because I didn't know what my trip itinerary would look like. When I was finally on island, I ended up trying to book shore dives through two other dive shops, but they weren't able to accommodate me on the day I was looking to dive. Thankfully, Dive Kauai was! They seem to separate certified divers from non-certified, which I appreciate. I brought some of my own gear, so I only had to get a wetsuit, BC, weights, and tanks from the shop. Dive Kauai provided very clear instructions on where and when to meet for the shore dives, and I appreciated that our guide Jill had set out chairs and a mat for us on shore. She was a very easygoing guide and was able to help us with identifying interesting critters that we had seen during our dives. If you're interested in reserving your dives in person, make sure to give them a call ahead of time because the address on their website isn't the one that you should go to! They're main building for diving is located across the street from Koloa Fish Market (also highly worthy of a visit!).

AMAZING. I never feel compelled to write reviews but this was one of those awesome experiences. Me & my husband went on our honeymoon. Both decent swimmers, but I was super nervous about diving. Logan was THE BEST. He was very good about giving directions, answering all my questions thoroughly & patiently. I felt very safe and like I was prepared and with guides that kept everything under control & also having fun. Logan also pointed out all of the cool sea life & we saw so many beautiful fish, sea turtles, a eel, and plenty of others that I don’t know the name of but were beautiful. My husband & I had the best time & 10/10 would recommend ! Thank you Dive Kauai & Logan!!!

Dominic was a wonderful instructor as he took us on our dusk and night dive! Very knowledgeable about the area. I felt very safe doing my first night dive there! Loads of sea turtles and super cool to see the bioluminescence.

Had a fabulous tow-tank shore dive at Koloa landing with Jill. She took great care of all of us and showed us a ton of great sea life. I hadn't been diving in a few years, and this was such a great way to get back in the water. Excellent area to dive, saw so many turtles, eels and even two octopuses! Thanks again for a wonderful time, Jill!

My wife passed away in September 2022 and I came to Kauai to spread her ashes because it was her favorite place to go as a child. I also came here to fulfil a promise I made to her, to have some fun, recharge, and get my head on straight and do the one thing she knew I loved, Scuba Diving. After some research I came up with Dive Kauai. They were good to work with, at first. On the day I was supposed to fly out I missed my flight due to an accident that had the hwy closed. I rescheduled my flight for the next day. I was supposed to be going with Dive Kauai for a refresher. When I called them to reschedule, they charged me a $75 rescheduling fee even though the reason I’ve rescheduled was not my fault, but I rescheduled anyway. It was 90 plus degrees that day and we’re out there going over equipment, hand signals, etc. I had brought most of my own equipment. For the most part I put together everything while she was talking about refresher materials. We also got into our wet suits and because I had a few more things to do I didn’t get a chance to jump into the water to cool off and looking back I think I got heat exhaustion. I finally got down to the water with all the equipment and the entrance into the water is a slippery and uneven. I got in and was having issues with my mask getting it to seal. When she checked with me, and I said I was having a little trouble, she pulled the mask off my face and dragged me into shore. She said I couldn’t participate in that dive and probably could go on the next one using their equipment. We then started walking out of the water I was having problems because of the uneven surface it was slimy and slick and every time the wave came in it would knock me the forward and backward. I was a little bit winded because I had walked down in full equipment got halfway to the dive sight and had to back up that ramp. Well this pissed her off. I have never seen a dive instructor act this unprofessional. In front of two other groups she proceeded to remove the tank and BC tell me that I was too out of shape, I had no business diving, and to go back to a pool. She said that she would not let me dive with her and she didn’t know who else would. I just stared. I was diving long before she was born, my best friend was a dive instructor. She embarrassed me in front of others and in my opinion she should learn some people skills before she goes on as an instructor. BTW I found another dive company and had an awesome two tank dive day!
