The two dives were incredible! Carlos was an excellent guide and very familiar with the area. The dive was so much more intense because he educated us on what we were likely to see before we entered the water. There was an exorbitant amount of fish of all varieties. We saw a number of eels, turtles and had a seal... More

We did a shore dive at Koloa Landing this past Monday and it was a wonderful experience! Our guide was Barhar (sp?) and she made the whole experience even better! It had been quite awhile since my sister and I last dove so we were a little rusty but Barhar made us feel very comfortable and confident going into the... More

Having owned my own dive shop in Monterey, CA, I tend to be pretty particular about dive shops. I value safety, variety and knowledgeable and capable divemasters. Having been diving with three different dive companies on the island, I come back to Fathom Five because it meets my requirements for safety and knowledgeable professionals. They truly want to see their... More

My son and I did the Introductory Afternoon Shore Dive at Koloa Landing about two weeks ago. Our dive instructor, Jose, gave us a wonderful experience. The lecture portion on land was valuable, and he made sure each of us was comfortable with our equipment and emergency procedures before taking us any deeper than 3 feet. We then made two... More

Hannah was our instructor and she was super. There were four of us, three had never scuba'd before. The boys, 11 and 14 are strong swimmers, so that wasn't the issue. I wish we'd taught our oldest how to clear his ears in advance. That was his trouble. The youngest lost his mask and got spooked. Hannah handled all this... More

Thank you Bahar and Charlie! It was an amazing pleasure to be on a dive with such a professional divemaster and captain. There was no ego with either and the experience was richer because of it. I appreciated the thorough briefing that both provided prior to departure and diving. I've done guided dives in the US, the Phillipines and South... More

Did a check out dive at Koloa Landing with Jason a few days ago, went on a two tank dive today with dive master Carlos and Captain Charlie. Once we left the harbor, Charlie took us to see a pod of bottle nosed dolphins. Diving with Carlos, he thoroughly explained the dive, had an underwater slate so he could write... More

We booked an afternoon dive with Fathom Five for me, my wife and our 14 year-old son. My wife's cold didn't clear up and she had to cancel the day before. Which we did with no issues, Fathom Five were great about it. The dive proceeded with my son, me and one other diver (all of us certified, but not... More

Hannah and her crew provided a memorable experience. Professionalism in her craft is evident. Attention to detail, safety and clarity rank first and foremost. Ecologically aware & knowledgeable. Calm, patient and interesting. Obviously a "Pro" who enjoys what she does. Kudos

Absolutely the best experience I've had on Kauai. I'm 70 years old and not once did I feel my age. The dive instructor, Jose, was fantastic. He was thorough, extremely patient and incredibly knowledgeable. More than anything he made me feel extremely comfortable and safe while diving. At the dive shop I was treated with dignity and respect. I would... More
