I contacted Patrick's Diving Adventures after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and looking at all information on the website. I am a fairly new certified diver who had only dived in the Pacific Northwest (cold water, dry suit, poor vis). I had struggled with bouncy control and was really looking for a Dive Shop that could provide me with a positive,... More

Upon the recommendation of someone at our resort in Ko'olina, I contacted Patrick's Diving adventures. Most larger scale operators are located closer to Honolulu and the weekday morning drive from Ko'olina is horrendous. The 25 min drive to Waianae from Ko'olina is easy. I dealt with Both Jim and Patruck on the phone and they did their best to fit... More

From the moment we walked into Patrick's Diving Adventures, the staff were excellent. For our first dive they took us to Black Rock just north of the harbour and we dove to just over 28.5 m (94’). Deepest we have gone so far and it was great. We spotted a turtle, and eagle ray and loads of fish plus one... More

Was planning on Makaha Caverns but waves too high. Dove 2 dives with Jed and he was great, pointing out lots of fush, eel, shark. Great diving.

Did my advanced open water and Nitrox I dives with Patrick. Great experience and solid instruction. Well run operation, good boat. Boat time is minimal; we did two 45-minute dives each day and were pretty much done by 1230 with an 0800 showtime. Definitely recommend diving with this team.
