SCUBA Dive Kauai with Kauai Down Under

The “ALOHA SPIRIT” is what the staff at Kauai Down Under is all about! In the Hawaiian language, Aloha means affection, love, peace and compassion. Aloha has also come to be used as an English greeting to say hello, goodbye, and “I LOVE TO DIVE”. OK, maybe we added the last part!

Kauai Down Under is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort. To have earned this rating, our company has demonstrated excellence in providing traveling scuba divers with memorable dive experiences, phenomenal customer service, an exceptional diver safety record and focus on underwater environmental awareness.

While taking a break between dives, saw several humpbacks in distance and 1 breached- came completely out of the water!! Nice refreshments and snacks. Very reasonably priced. Ii... More

They arranged for us to go last minute. It was easy, the equipment was good, our guide Marc was very helpful, pointed out a lot of unusual stuff. It was a shore dive off Koloa Landing by the Sheraton. We saw lots of green turtles, 3 kinds of eels, Cornett fish, unicorn fish, Leaf scorpion, Frog fish, etc. it was... More

What a great way to learn the basics of scuba diving! Our instructor, Marc, was personable, professional and knowledgeable. He patiently taught us what we needed to know in order to have a great time. He explained everything our dives would entail ahead of time so there were no underwater surprises. I really enjoyed the small class size - there... More

We visited Poi'pu during the week before Thanksgiving and hoped to schedule a discovery dive for our 11 yr old son. His dad and I are both open water certified and looked forward to changing his opinion of the underwater experience as he didn't enjoy snuba at all (6 yrs ago). Mark was our divemaster and he was very thorough... More

Judi, Thank you for the great review, it's always nice to hear that our team is making such an impact on the next generation of divers. If your son is anything like I was at 11 he's already asking when he can go diving again. Of course the next step is Jr. Open Water Cert! I hope the rest of... More

While on vacay with the fam, my husband and I had planned to do a couple dives. While exploring different dive shops I found Kauai Down Under and was instantly sucked in because they offered "Scooter Dives"... c'mon that sounds awesome any way you slice it. So I called in, and we booked for a 2 tank scooter dive. Upon... More

Getting up early on vacation for Two mornings in a row was SO WORTH IT after going scuba diving with Kauai Down Under. Sunday, M'Lady and I went to a wonderful orientation of activities at the resort we stayed at, and ended up going through the Introduction to Scuba class with Kevin in the resort's pool right after the orientation....

My husband and I recently visited Kauai on vacation and Kevin Abernathy talked us into trying out scuba diving. I was always really scared of scuba, and never thought it was something that I would do. Kevin did such a great job of easing us into the experience with just breathing in the pool, then full equipment in the pool... More
