Had a great time taking an introductory dive with my wife and teenage stepson. My stepson was a little nervous getting used to the mask and learning to clear his regulator. Rob did a great job making him feel comfortable and working with him until he was relaxed. Rob knows the area very well and told us about the area and make some great restaurant recommendations. A great dive instructor with a great personality.

Rob and Kater took my husband and I on an epic intro dive on our honeymoon. While my husband had previously been certified, I had only done this once before many years ago. As a result, I was pretty nervous both using the equipment and navigating under the water. Rob took my hand and gently guided me underwater, giving me continual instructions via hand signals/a chalkboard until I was able to get the hang of it. My nerves melted away with his presence, and I was able to truly enjoy the diving experience! My husband, who was much more confident than I, was able to freely swim about under the water without having to worry about my safety and comfort. Overall, the balance that Rob was able to strike between our two drastically different experience levels was incredibly appreciated, and made for a memorable dive for both of us. We saw several sea turtles during the dive, a ton of fish and invertebrates, and had dolphins swimming next to the bow of the boat on our return trip! All of our questions about the wildlife were easily answered by Kater, a marine biologist. Overall, it was an absolutely amazing experience. Rob and Kater were both fantastic company; incredibly easy to get along with, very funny, and very serious when the time called for it. I can not recommend this enough! Great for both more experienced divers and nervous, inexperienced first timers alike.

We had a really good time. Rob’s sticker is the only one I’ve ever put on my water flasks; and that’s because it represents a fear conquered, and relished. Thank you Rob for such a wonderful experience!

My teenage son and I had an awesome adventure with Rob surfing! He was fun and knowledgeable. His expert instruction had us up on our boards and actually surfing right away. We had an amazingly memorable time. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone wanting a fun and unforgettable time on the Big Island!
