My name is Alex Mason. I am a PADI Master Instructor which is the highest instructor rating you can achieve from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. I have been teaching SCUBA-diving in Hawaii for over 13 years with a perfect safety record. I am able to teach all courses from Discover SCUBA diving all the way through to dive master, I am also qualified to teach 18 different specialties.If you are looking for a small company that takes pride in what it does, you have definitely found the right place! I take out very small groups: a maximum of four SCUBA divers per diving Instructor for both the Open Water Certification course and our Discover SCUBA diving ADVENTURE! My maximum ratio for licensed SCUBA divers is 6 to 1; however 90% of the time we have between two and four SCUBA divers per diving Instructor.This does not mean I can not manage larger groups; I definitely can. For larger groups, I would employ dive masters or instructors to help me best suit your needs, giving you the best ADVENTURE ever. I will still manage the day and make sure everything runs smoothly, as I am always present with you on the boat. My company is small enough to care; my management skills are excellent so I can organize any size group.

What a great two days. Moved us due to bad weather making sure out holidays weren't impacted! Met us once we landed to give us Learning material, talked us though and set expectations. The dives were great, great boat and crew, clear and concise instructions and gave us all the time in the world to get use to the entirely... More

We had an incredible time diving with Alex. There was our family of four in the party. This was our 15 year old daughter's first deep dive and so she was rather nervous. He was great at explaining to her just what we were doing and reassuring her. He is a great teacher while you dive which just enhanced our... More

I dove with Alex on a shallow reef dive in late October 2013. As a certified diver, Alex initially recommended I do the wreck dive but I opted for the shallower dive as this was my first dive after getting my open water certification only eight months beforehand and I was still a little jittery. Alex quickly helped me get... More

My husband is an experienced diver and 'm an inexperienced diver. After extensive research and three days of diving with Alex, we're so happy we chose Alex as our dive master! If not early, Alex was always on time, ready to pick us up for our dive. If you're a diver, you know how important it is to be on... More

Great Master Diver!! Great dive locations and amazing prices. Takes plenty of pics for you for FREE, others wanted to charge. Our group had experienced and unexperienced divers and Alex made sure everyone was comfortable. Will visit again!

Alex does an excellent job with his outfit, he's knowledgable, direct and I would recommend him for diving with. His equipment is good and I have definately come away a much better diver for it. If time had allowed I would have definitely taken more dives with him.

We dove with Alex three days for Advanced Open Water Cert. over the labor day weekend. Among six dives, we went five different sites and Alex helped us achieve peak buoyancy right in the very first dive, then the rest dives were just amazing. Everything you want, ship wreck swim through, shark, octopus, just let him know and he will... More

Great skills and reinforced them all week to get me out of my bad habits. OK well most of them :). Having a dive computer included was excellent and... More

Alex is great. A real professional that make your dive fun and unique. He was very patient with me and made my day a far better experience than it could have been. Very grateful to find him and look forward to future dives with him. It doesn't get much better than Alex.

Did the PADI open water cert with Alex recently. Alex is an extremely competent and experienced teacher. He is very patient and ensures that you are properly prepared and aware of the inherent safety issues involved in SCUBA diving whilst also making the coursework a lot of fun. Even after covering all the necessary skills for certification we managed to... More
