ABOUT US

WAIKIKI DIVE CENTER, SINCE 1979

We are Waikiki’s only full-service dive center, providing scuba diving charters and services on Oahu since 1979. Waikiki Dive Center can accommodate all your diving needs, whether it be equipment repair, purchases (including special orders), classes, rentals, or air fills – Waikiki Dive Center can do it all. We are also a Five Star Instructor Development Center offering courses from PADI Open Water to Instructor at affordable prices. Located in the heart of Waikiki, you can’t beat the convenience of this full-service dive center.

We operate our own custom USCG (United States Coast Guard) Certified dive boats, outfitted with full safety equipment including oxygen and an emergency radio beacon. Our experienced captains and crew are here to make your diving experience truly remarkable.

We specialize in small groups and personalized attention. On a typical day, you’ll be diving with no more than 6 divers on our 7:15am charter. Our 10:15am charters keep the groups small, as our instructors take no more than 4 divers each. We like to keep the numbers down to give you the best scuba diving experience.

We offer complimentary roundtrip transportation within Waikiki with all diving tours.
