Don't bother with anyone else. Theae guys are all about quality and care. The dive is personal as they only take 6 people out each trip. So much better than the hoards of people you get with most other places on Oahu.

Aloha Erin, Thank you for your review. I still remember our Sea Cave dive - it was awesome! Our specialty is diving in small numbers (6 divers of less) and personalized service. Please come dive with us again soon! Mahalo, Reef Pirates Diving More

We had a great time in Hawaii with Reef Pirates. They took us to some great sites, saw lots of turtles, eels, and best of all we saw a whale breech just before beginning one of the dives. The dive master and captain were professional and take a safety 1st approach. One of our favorite dive operations we have used.

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.
