I am 55 years old and have always wanted to get certified. My daughter knew Sean and recommended him to me. I was vacationing in Waikiki and took advantage of my time there to finally do this. Sean is an excellent instructor who realy cares about his students. He add's a lot of insight to a serious course in diving and you have fun doing it.

For the 4 open water dives I experianced, I would have paid much more for guided dives let alone coming out of this fully certified! I would highly recommned Sean to anyone not just for classes but for open water dives in the area. Saws tons of turtles and sea life.

We chose Reef Pirates based on other reviews and were not disappointed. Sean picked us up at our hotel in Waikiki and proved to be a knowledgeable dive master and exceptional guide. Dives were full-service with equipment change, even taking off our fins before climbing up the ladder. Reef Pirates takes no more than 6 divers. We felt very safe and were happy with the personalized service. Sean went out of his way to make sure he was able to take us out for a 2nd day of diving. Would definitely recommend Reef Pirates to anyone diving in Oahu and will be sure to go out with Sean again on any future visits to Hawaii.

Sean is just simply brilliant! He always take small groups therefore you have lots of personal attention. He was looking for the Corsair wreck just to made my dreams come true, showed me all Hawaiian creatures and took great photos and videos. He's the best dive master I have ever dived. Saw a lot, learnt a lot and was safe all way long.

Sean is a great instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. I'd recommend him to anyone. The group was small. I got a lot of personal attention. And I was surprised at how prepared I was when it came time for the exam.

Sean and team are the best there is to offer! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and great to dive with! I travel to Oahu 4x per year for business and will make sure that I book my return dives with Sean each time. He only leads small group dives 4-6 people max so you get that extra special attention you want and deserve. Sean also takes amazing underwater photos that really capture those moments that are hard to describe to those who have never been diving before. I would 100% recommend Sean to anyone either experienced or first time divers looking to become certified. Reef Pirates are the best on Oahu! And well priced too!
