Semi-Private Course

When you learn to scuba dive, you are opening yourself up to unmatched adventure and beauty. Your PADI Open Water Certification is the first step. This two to three-day scuba certification course can be scheduled any days you are available to learn to dive.

Included in your scuba diving training is all equipment needed, E-Learning codes, private confined water instruction, and certification.
During your Open Water dives on the boat, your instructor is supervising other guests as well. (Want an instructor all to yourself for all of your training dives? Check out our Private Open Water Course below.)

Day 1- Review your self-guided eLearning along with a morning pool session where you begin to learn the basic skills of scuba diving. You then jump on the afternoon 2 tank shallow reef charter to complete the first session of your open water training dives.

Days 2 – Again, you meet in the morning to complete the confined water training of the course, then on to finish your last two open ocean dives. Successfully completing the diving class allows you to go scuba diving and rent equipment anywhere in the world.

Group Course

This group course introduces local divers to all Oahu has to offer. This is an awesome opportunity for our local friends to get certified on your own time and at a great local price, also open to anyone who is visiting for an extended vacation on Oahu, Hawaii. Take the weekend, having a great time scuba diving during this scuba diving course, and you’re certified for life!

Course Includes:

  • Complete the classroom/theory portion of the PADI Open Water online (E-learners)
  • Tuesday orientation meeting
  • Saturday and Sunday confined water training and two boat dives
  • Student provides personal mask, snorkel, and fins. These can be purchased at orientation if the student does not have personal set.

All other costs, including boat dives for all your training and rental gear, are included. Upon certification we invite you back for free shore diving with your instructor so you can learn the local dive spots and invite you for discounted boat diving trips to wrecks like the Sea Tiger and YO-257.

Private Course

All-inclusive two- day PADI course (one to two person max). This course follows the Semi Private Course with a private instructor in the confined water training, but with the private course you also have a private instructor on the ocean diving portion as well.

A typical schedule for this scuba diving training begins early in the morning on day one with E-Learning quick review. You then complete a few hours of confined water training and then on to the 2 tank afternoon shallow reef dive.

Day two you begin the morning with your final confined water session of scuba diving training and again onto the afternoon dive charter to complete the last two open water scuba diving training dives.
