I chose to go through Reef Pirates for my diving in Oahu based on all of the reviews I read, and I'm so glad I did! Sean, Orvil and Dan were very laid back guys while at the same time being very safety conscious, and will only take up to six people out at a time. I went as a solo diver to do my specialties in Boat and Fish ID, and between the personal attention with the small group and how well the guys new the locations we dove I was very impressed. I was so happy to dive with these guys- I only wish I had time to do more! I will definitely dive with them the next time I'm in Oahu :)

We had a great experience with Sean, Kathleen and Orville. Sean picked us up in waikiki right on time and drove to the shop and had a breakfast sandwich and coffee while the boat was loaded up. the corsair was excellent, lots of fish, 5 octopus! and even heard whales nearby (cool)
Sean and crew where a delight to be around and were very professional and operated at a comfortable pace for all divers. We have scuba dived BVI, Bonairre, Bahamas, Palau, Belize the last few trips and this outfit is great. We highly recommend Reef Pirates for an enjoyable, comfortable, relaxing scuba morning. give "em a call!

Aloha John,

We are so glad you enjoyed your dives with us. We are very fortunate to have the Corsair just a few minutes away from our shop. And because we get there first, we get to see all the cool animals!
We hope you will come diving with us again the next time you are on Oahu.

I have had the opportunity to use several different dive operators while in Hawaii. None were bad, but all pale in comparison to Reef Pirates Diving. They are a good combination of professionalism and fun. Small groups, getting to dive sites early and great leadership sure make a difference. My heartfelt thanks to Sean, Orvil, Will, Dan and Kathleen. You guys are an impressive team. You rock!

I am quite happy I decided to dive with these guys. The captain and dive crew are very friendly and laid back, yet still very professional. In my experience, it's rare for a crew to seem just as excited as the customers, and they are all about being in the water! Unlike many guides, Sean and Orvil kept an eye on us without hovering over the shoulder. It's very irritating when a guide just follows you around until you're low on air, but instead these fine gentlemen keep an eye out for anything and everything that could possibly be cool and take you right to it. Small groups are what they advertise and that's what you get. No cattle boats here! Very reasonable rates and the gear is in good condition. I will be a return customer for sure.

WOW! Reef Pirates is an amazing dive op! I have dove with them a couple times now and and still have a bit more to go before I head back east. COMFORTABLE - From the size of the boat (6 divers max and plenty of space) to the feeling of safety you have with each and every dive. FRIENDLY - Every person I have encountered so far (Sean, Will, Orville/Clark, Dan, Kathleen) from Reef Pirates has been extremely friendly, easy to talk to to, and very genuine. You really feel at ease at all times on the boat and in the water! AWESOME SITES AND TIMES - They really hit up all the great sites. Each day we have been asked if we have been to a particular site and they try and get us to different sites if we choose. Since Reef Pirates boat leaves earlier than all the other dive charters, you are alone in the water with your small group for each dive. This sure beats diving with a cattle boat amongst other cattle boats all at the same site. I visit Hawaii frequently and will always book my future trips with Reef Pirates!!!
