Having these two locations allows us to dive virtually anywhere on Kauai. We pride ourselves on our PADI 5 Star IDC rating and our excellent, experienced, & fun-loving staff who will do their utmost to make your dives with us the highlight of your vacation!

These people are the best. The dive master leads the group and points out undersea life that you could never find on you own. Their rental gear is superb, the boat ride is short, and the crew makes sure that you have a great experience. They're a 10.

We enjoyed the local dive sites, including Sheraton Gardens, Turtle Bluffs and Fish Bowl, There were green turtles on every dive - Sheraton Gardens was particularly impressive for the sheer number of size of the turtles. They were tucked up under ledges and in crevices everywhere! The best dives, however, were at Ni'ihau, where we had close encounters with mantas, endangered monk seals and several different species of shark. Because there is little development or tourism around Ni'ihau, the waters are pristine and we saw many endemic Hawaiian fish. The downside of Ni'ihau was the long boat ride there and even longer ride back. You do get three dives at Ni'ihau but it literally takes all day. Fathom Five seems to be a good safety-conscious outfit. Anthony was helpful in pointing out both mega-fauna and small "critters" for the macro photographers. My only complaint was that the boat was never ready when they told us to be there - we waited almost an hour one day.

We booked two day-time shore dives and the Twilight/night dive package with Fathom Five. We're certified, but we also did the dive refresher since it had been over a year and a half since we'd been diving.

Mike (@octupuswhisper on Twitter!) was our first divemaster and helped us feel really comfortable getting back in the water. We saw some really cool creatures at Koloa Landing, including sea turtles and an octopus!

Jess and Jeremy were our divemasters for our twilight and nighttime dives! This is a great package if you've never been night diving before; we were nervous but Jess answered all our Qs and kept us calm. We saw so many turtles on our twilight dive; I almost ran into one (sorry dude!). The creature after night were also awesome; we saw a huge eels attack and kill a fish. Jess and Jeremy were as enthusiastic as we were about the dive, which was really fun.

Next time we come to Kauai we'll definitely be doing more dives with Fathom Five!

Great dive with Jeremy. Lots of ocean life. Great attitude. He was really great at settling the fears of my daughter about being in the ocean for our first ocean dive.

This is a smaller dive company and comes with all the advantages of it, including very personalized service. Had an introduction to dive course with Jeremy and it was the experience of a lifetime. He was an incredible instructor for a first-timer like me and offered the additional bonus of being extremely knowledgeable of the marine life, and where to dive to find it. The plan is to now begin the certification process and return to see Jeremy to finalize it.
