Reef Pirates guided my son and I on our first non training dives and kept us safe and provided lots of fun, helping us transition to more independent diving and continuing instruction at the same time. Carefully selecting the dive site, they made sure we had good visibility and ample time diving. Bud and his son are very professional and... More

Great job by the crew at Reef Pirates! Supposed to be 6 people total diving but 4 pulled out at the last minute. Instead of cancelling or trying to piece together something e;we, the folks at Reef Pirates took the two of us out.

To start, we had great communication with Bud (dive shop owner) who was patient and answered all of our questions regarding our upcoming dive and the particulars of the Discover SCUBA course that one of our party would be taking on the day. This was our "Trip of a lifetime" to Hawaii and we wanted to make sure that this... More
