Our family had a great time with the Trident Adventures crew during our recent trip to Oahu. The crews' attention to safety and passenger enjoyment was top notch. I had a blast with the snorkeling underwater propulsion devices. I would definitely go again with this outfit.

My family and I were in Oahu, Hawaii for a destination wedding. On New Year’s Day, 19 of us, ages 7yr-75yrs old, decided to go on the Skin Diving Snorkel Adventure. It was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! The owner is a retired Navy Seal, and a very experienced diver. He and the Captain are super safety oriented..more so than any other snorkel or dive adventure we’ve been on. The whole crew was very informative and helpful and they all had great personalities. We loved the personal touches such offering to shower each of us off on the deck to wash the salt water out of our hair and even provided leave-in conditioner and argon oil to detangle our hair. They also had hair ties if needed. For snacks, they provided peanut butter pretzels, fruit gummies, fresh pineapple which was cut on the boat, and as much water and fruit flavor Hawaiian sodas as we could drink. For our snorkeling time, they provided us with top of the line snorkels, fins and masks along with lessons for any first-timers. There were also people on the tours for scuba diving so we were offered diver propulsion vehicles (DPV) that we could try, which was a ton of fun. The boat ride itself was a lot of fun and they took us to a great off-shore area to go snorkeling and were given food to draw in more fish. It was very beautiful! We snorkeled for 1.5-hrs.-2 hrs. Following snorkeling, the Captain found out that whales were near by so they took us out to the area were they were. Sure enough, we saw two and we stayed watching until everyone was able to get great views of them. It was incredible! Once our adventure was complete, we headed back to shore. We were treated with such personalized service and attention that it felt like we spent the day with friends. The whole crew was wonderful. We HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend the Trident Adventures Oahu group leaving from the marina in Kapolei! You will not be disappointed!! This 3 hour adventure is worth every penny!

This was the best overall diving experience we have ever had. truly exceptional.

The entire crew from the captains, the owners (Steve and Jim), the dive instructors and the fist mates were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They all make an effort to speak with you during the trip and give advice on what to expect during the dive.

The boat (especially the decking) was perfectly designed for a comfortable and safe experience. We saw a few whales and spinner dolphins and the captains ensured that we got to spend some time observing them along our trip.

We rented all our equipment and it was probably the best equipment I have ever used in terms of quality and maintenance. Divers were provided with DPV’s (no extra up charge) if desired and they were awesome!! The crew did an exceptional job putting together all the equipment and getting us in and out of the water safely. The safety and dive briefings given by Steve were also very well done. He made sure to go over the basics of diving and the equipment we were going to use (always nice to get a little additional information).

The divers were assigned into small groups which were led by an instructor. They keep the groups small (I was in a group of max 3 people on each of my dives) and the instructor makes an effort to speak with the group separately to give additional information about the dive/ site. I dove with Jim and Brian and they were both truly exceptional at their job and made us feel very safe on each of our dives. We really appreciated all the extra steps they took which are often not done by other diver operators.

All in all I enjoy three awesome days (6 dives) of diving while my wife and daughter (12 years old) got to dive as well. Any day you get to see whales, spinner dolphins on the surface and turtles, octopus, sharks and eagle rays etc on the dives is a good day... An awesome experience and we hope to be back diving with Trident Adventures again!

If you want to go diving on Oahu - go to the west side and go with Trident Adventures. Trident is the best run, most professional dive company we’ve ever had the pleasure to go diving with - and we’ve done a fair amount of diving over the past 25 years on 3 continents. Steve and Jim, who founded and run Trident, are the best trained and most experienced divers we’ve ever been lucky enough to dive with. The diving experience they provide is so well thought through and executed - from how they run their boat, to the pre-dive briefings, the coaching they provide, and the confidence they instill in you. We’re a family of four and Steve was the guide for the four of us for two dives (on the “Deep Water Wreck Dive”). Everyone from Trident on our boat was an instructor, not just a dive master - and the ratio of instructor to diver was 1:3 or 4. The dive equipment is all new Scubapro gear. They even teach you how to use a DPV, which was a fun bonus. But more than anything, they’re just fun, knowledgeable, professional, and gracious people. And that went for everyone from Trident we met - from Steve and Jim, to Captain Mel and the other instructors on our boat.
