Our non-profit Sea Inspiration, took Wounded Warrior Shilo Harris and his girlfriend Jamie PK out for a SCUBA diving adventure in Waikiki. The staff was GREAT and the visibility was about 120 feet. Waikiki Diving Center went out of their way to make it happen for us all and we'll be featuring this as a segment for our Sea Inspiration... More

Tell ya the truth , reading some bad reviews made me nervous but i went in their shop and talked to them first. We told them we were new divers and had some of our own equipment, they gave us a discount because we had some of our own gear. Since we told them we were nervous because we were... More

My best friend and I booked a beginner's scuba dive for the 15th Feb 2017 for an afternoon dive - 10:15am with Waikiki Dive Centre. The process of it was really easy. Our scuba dive instructor Marco was really nice and friendly and ensured that everything was okay. He went through safety things before you went down under, which helped... More

DO NOT DIVE WITH WITH THIS GROUP!!! Unprofessional...unsafe...terrible equipment. Been diving many times...there are plenty of other options in Waikiki. Not worth it A BUNCH OF KIDS RUNNING THE DIVE SHOP.

Great staff!!! They are all naturals in flattering their clients and making them feel good. I inquired about freediving on one of their excursions. Emanuelle arranged for their freediver, Tim Lilo, to accompany me. I joined a scuba group of 8 divers. The dive instructors were awesome. The boat was in excellent shape and the skipper was professional; and that... More

It's been 8 years since my last dive, nearly 25 for my husband. Nick gave the most comprehensive safety refresher I've ever heard. Dive sites were amazing. His crew was great, laid back but thorough, friendly and made our day awesome. Excellent gear, safe tanks/air. Highly recommend this dive center.

Diving into the ocean is something you have to do in Hawaii. I tried it although I've never done it before and it was amazing. The staff was very helpful and well trained and gave us a lot of instruction before going into the water and was by our side underwater. The underwater experience was fantastic since it is very...
