Had an incredible time with Reef Pirates this weekend on the Corsair Dive. Not only did I finally experience diving freely with 4 Whitetip Reef Sharks, but hearing the whales underwater and seeing them breach from the boat was the cherry on top. To add on to the fun, we got to explore the wonders of the Corsair and sneaked... More

I found myself with some free time and booked a last-minute wreck and reef dive. This company was great. The shop is located right along the dock where the boat is, so their is no walk or van ride needed to get to the boat. Each dive only has 6 divers or less on a spacious boat, so there is... More

We had a group of 4, including 1 scuba diver, and were looking for something we could all enjoy. Reef Pirates offers half day private charters that are super reasonable in price. Captain Dan and JP were totally accommodating in finding a couple places the diver could enjoy as well as the snorklers. We had a fantastic time, got to... More

I was picked up at my hotel and as we were a small group we were soon fitted with our equipment and went out in the rather small boat. For the morning dive it was only certified divers. The nice and professional staff took care of the equipment, but nobody bothered with a buddy check before going in. We made... More

My partner and I had an awesome experience diving with Reef Pirates on 3rd Feb! We chose Reef Pirates as they take out a max of 6 people, and they go early in the morning, which is great as you miss the crowds. The captain and dive master were down to earth and just wanted to make sure everyone had... More

The Reef Pirates crew - Bud and Michael - were great! Our 2 tank dive to the Corsair and KoKo Crater were awesome. Very professional but they didn't baby us, since our group was all certified (the 6:30 am dive is usually for certified divers). We will bring our kids next time! Thanks for the amazing adventure!

Johnny was our instructor, he did great. We were both first time divers and he was very patient and knowledgeable. Would definitely go again! The whole crew was great. We will definitely be diving again with Reef Pirates. We shopped many places and luckily booked here before our trip. Great crew, great atmosphere, great dive. As you can tell, the... More

I would say this was one of the best things I did while I was in Oahu. My husband and I did a discover scuba course while our friend did a certified dive- it was the best!!! The staff was very hospitable and the views were breathtaking. Bring an underwater camera- you will not regret it.

Semi-experienced diver here. I went with reef pirates and did three dives, the Corsair wreck, LCU wreck, and a reef. The captain(Pete) was very knowledgeable about the bay and was able to find the dive sites quickly and keep us out of any currents. My dive buddy(Elise) and also the instructor on the boat was a very good diver and... More
