Waikiki Boat Dives
Reef Dive Tour
SCHEDULE: 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM
Great for beginners, divers who haven’t dove in a few years, and experienced divers looking for a fun, easy dive. Dives at this time of the day are usually reef dives that do not exceed 45 feet. Sites include the Turtle Canyon, Nautilus Reef, Horse Shoe Reef, and the Kewalo Pipeline. From the boat you can see the shores of Waikiki and the Ala Moana Beach Park. Each site is unique and offers a plethora of Hawaiian sea life. Turtle Canyon is a Seaturtle cleaning station. The Nautilus and Horse Shore Reefs are natural reefs where Whitetip Sharks visit. And the Kewalo Pipeline serves as an artificial reef and sanctuary to many local marine animals.
Wreck Dive Tour
SCHEDULE: 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Morning dive options include the Sea Tiger, the YO257 and San Pedro shipwrecks. These wrecks range in depths from 90 to 120 feet deep and serve as artificial reefs.
