I was previously certified as a diver, but family was not. They enjoyed snorkeling, but it has its inherent limitations. Snuba, for the family, was great blend. I was concerned they would feel restricted due to tube length, but O2 tanks travel above on mini-raft...More

This was the third time my husband and I did Snuba, but first time in Kauai. We love the experience Snuba gives you without the training or worries of scuba. If you want to experience scuba but not as deep and as easy as snorkeling,...More

Great way to experience the ocean without needing scuba certification. My husband and I were easily able to acclimate underwater and had a great time! Much more enjoyable than snorkeling!

Great guys outfitting and apart of the dive. Could have been much better if they'd indicate certain times for beginner's and other times for experience. Spent too much sitting on the ocean floor waiting for first timers to gain courage, dive down, even swim in...More

We went 10:30am in mid-February and had zero issues with clarity in the water. We also had many schools of various fish swim around and with us while under the water.
