The best!

Since Waikiki Dive Centre is a PADI approved shop I was able to do the online component prior to arriving so I could take advantage of my time to do other activities. I wholeheartedly recommend the Waikiki Diving Centre for all your dive needs. You will not be disappointed!

Great team!

These guys did an awesome job. I struggled and they could not have been more patient and kind. My daughter was a natural for her time and the dive team taught her so much! Guys here's your 5 stars! You deserve them!
