Great experience. Small group, very comfortable setting with knowledgeable leaders. The best dive experience for the money, bar none.

From the (included) pick-up at my hotel in Waikiki, the service I received was very professional, while still being friendly. The staff, including the captain, dive masters (instructors) and even the owner were all experienced in managing diving operations in a safe and enjoyable manner. The equipment, and the the boat, was also in very good shape. I would (and... More

These folks are amazing!! My husband an I are not certified but my mom is, however she woke up with a head cold and opted out of diving. Our 10 year old boy took her spot.

We had a wonderful experience with Reef Pirates. We were the only ones on the boat that morning and where the first company to get to the dive sites. We dived the landing craft wreck dive and the koko crater reef dive, both were beautiful dives. The crew was very professional, knowledgeable and fun. It was a great dive!

My wife and I spent two days diving with Reef Pirates and we couldn't be happier that we chose them as our dive operator. Everything that others have said about the benefits of a small boat and an early departure are absolutely true. When we hit the water, there was nobody else around. On one dive we saw so many...

Aloha Aaron, Many thanks for your detailed review of your dive charters with Reef Pirates Hawaii.

You have lots of choices when it comes to diving on Oahu. That's why you're here; to figure out which shop you want to dive with. You can go out on a "dive barge" with 20+ of your not-so-close friends or you can go with Reef Pirates. Here's why I chose to dive with Reef Pirates and to finish my... More

Aloha Scott, Thank you for your review! We enjoy being the first dive shop out each morning; the dive sites are in pristine condition and the animals are still hanging around. Owning 2 six-pax boats means you are diving amongst friends; even if you haven't met anyone on the boat before. As divers we all care for each other and... More

My wife and me did an afternoon dive for non-certified divers. The atmosphere was very relaxed yet professional and the team made sure that we knew how to use the gear. The group was very small (4 attendees and 2 instructors) which was great. The instructors took their time with everything and the 2 dives we did were super interesting... More
