Everything went well except the tide, tide went out and reduced visibility to 2 ft and had to cancel our 2nd dive. I'm glad they went with safety first.

Aloha Sandy, Thank you for your review. There is not much we can do about visibility and we always stay true to our mantra - Safety First; Fun Second. Because the visibility became too poor to dive safely, the Captain and Instructor made the call to cancel the second dive. This was fully supported by management and a refund for... More

Excellent diving experience. The early morning start was perfect - we were the only ones at the two dive sites and saw all of the sea life (turtles, eels, octopus, and a ton of fish). By the time we were leaving our second site, three large dive boats with dozens of divers cruised up. So glad we got there first.... More

My girls and I had a wonderful time. Good boat, small sizes and fantastic hosts. I have one daughter certified and one brand new. They handled both with an experienced hand. Turtles, coral and fish were easy to see. I have tried other beginning dive courses and this one was the best. My youngest was really nervous and the instructor... More

Excellent in every way—an Oahu santuary. These are real people, nice, and a bit salty, they actually want to show you a great time. You wont feel like a tourist with Reef Pirates. (Thanks for a great day guys!)

Reef pirates were super accommodating! We dove one day and decided we wanted to dive again since we had so much fun. They took us out the next day even though they didn't have any dives planned. We had a great time!

Aloha and thank you for your review of Reef Pirates Diving Hawaii Unlike most of the other shops on Oahu, Reef Pirates does not have a minimum number of divers to run a regularly scheduled charter.

My father and I signed up for the afternoon shallower dives on Sunday - me as a certified open water diver, and my dad as a new diver (DSD). The pick up/drop off accommodations were a huge convenience for us, and the dive instructor, Johnny, was very welcoming, kind, and informative during the travel time. As a new diver, my... More

My wife and I got our certification with Reef Pirates. They took really good care of us. We have dived with them several times now and always had a good experience.
