We do not like to “toot our own horn”, so please read the words of others.

We took an introductory scuba dive from Underwater Oahu on the west side of Oahu, Makaha beach. The reason for the excellent rating was the quality of instruction and the ability of the instructors to put me kids at ease (me too) about the diving experience. We are very experience snorkelers but were in awe of diving.

Great dive shop! Shared boat with another dive group but didn’t matter once we were in the water. It was worth the drive from Waikiki for some great diving on the west side. Took us to some amazing sites. I know they don’t have control of the marine life, but very top notch dive sites with great marine life.

We went out with Mike and Cap Web for two morning dives (8am) and had a great time at the Maui and the Caverns. Enough to come back for a second day where we saw a sunken airplane and enjoyed the caverns again.

The equipment was brand new, Mike (the usual gear tech) took us out and did a great job with his briefing, showing us the dive sites, and watching out for our safety at all times. From what I understood we could have also met them at alternate locations to see a wider variety of the island.

The Leeward shore of the island seemed to have some better visibility, at least when we were there. Abundance of sea life and we were fortunate enough to see some dolphins, a monk seal, some small white tips, lots of turtles, …. and much more…

We would certainly come back and dive with them again, and highly recommend them as your dive shop when you’re on Oahu.

I recently finished my diving certification with Mike. He was a great instructor. His depth and breadth of knowledge about the sport are remarkable, and he has great teaching skills: enthusiastic, organized, clear, patient, low key. He knows a phenomenal amount, but doesn’t blather on and on about things. It made everything easy and very enjoyable!

The instruction location was beautiful and interesting, as well. I would highly recommend Mike for any dive trip. His knowledge base and approach means that you can really enjoy every moment of the dive.

I booked Mike on 3/9/15 and 3/10/15 to complete my Open Water Referral Dives. I had a great experience with Mike! He was a wonderful teacher, very thorough, and it is obvious he is committed to safety and education. My husband, who is a certified diver, also dove with us during our 4 dives over the course of 2 days. We dove at Electric Beach, about 15 minutes from his shop. Our equipment was brand new which was so nice! During our dives, we encountered sea turtles, 4-5 reef sharks and loads of beautiful fish. Mike is also so knowledgeable about the marine life native to HI.

NAUI requires a minimum of 4 dives at 20 mins each to complete their scuba certification (1 hour and 10 mins total) but Mike went above and beyond and we dove 4 times for a total of 3 hours and 4 mins. It was wonderful to have one on one instruction from Mike to complete my Scuba Diver Certification. There are a lot of options on the island for diving but I would highly recommend Underwater Oahu. Thank you Mike!

My wife and I live on the island of Oahu and I’ve been anxious to dive the beautiful Makaha coastline. We found Underwater Oahu doing a google search for dive companies on the island and found them located in the Makaha area. I advised Mike that we needed help updating our SCUBA skills and his group came through with colors. Can’t say enough good things about the experience. Most importantly though: safe, confident, capable, responsive, beautiful diving. A special thanks to Mike, dive instructor Jeb, Boat Skipper Michael and Kim. We’ll definately be back! PS, the cafe next door serves good food too…

Mike has been in the dive company business for many, many years. He recently moved his shop and is now located AT the harbor where many of his trips depart, very convenient. The company use to be named “pearl harbor divers” and was also very highly ranked. Mike takes you on fun trips and is an expert in the underwater attractions, but he never cuts corners on safety, which I truly appreciate. I trust this guy so much underwater that I hired him to certify my 12 year old daughter. She really wanted to start diving, but was apprehensive while still being excited. Mike’s teaching style and patience with her was awesome. On her last dive she saw about 6 reef sharks, multiple turtles, tons of fun underwater. There is not another company that I would trust with my daughter and I am so happy that I chose Mike to conduct her training. As he said, now is she no only “certified” but she is very “qualified” to safely dive. He also recently got me a heck of a deal on a new regulator and gauge set up for her that she is very happy with. Mahalo Mike, and we will see you soon.
If you are trying to figure out which company to book with for not only a fun dive, but also a very safe one, stop looking, this is the only company on Oahu to go with!!
