Full description
Cast off on Dive Oahu’s charter and ride in style and comfort on a fully equipped boat with a sun and shaded deck, plenty of space to move around, and a restroom on board.  While cruising to your first dive site, your certified instructor will share information about water conditions for the day and what marine life you might encounter.  

Swim through crystal clear turquoise waters and explore extraordinary reef formations brimming with sea life. Follow PADI Certified guide around the reef for amazing opportunities to see sharks, eels, rays, octopus, starfish, crabs, Hawaiian endemic fish, dolphins, and more.  

After a short interval on the surface, perfect for soaking up some sun, return to the underwater world to experience another amazing scuba dive. Visit Turtle Canyons, a reef site that was formed thousands of year ago due to volcanic activity. Marvel at the large rock encrusted coral formations that jut out from the shallow shores of Waikiki. One of the canyons, in particular, is known for the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles that consistently frequent the reef to get their shells cleaned.  Encounter the endemic Gold Ring Surgeon Fish cleaning the algae off of their shells and bodies. If you can peel yourself away from the turtle station, this site offers a range of reef fish and you might even catch glimpses of the more rare fish like Saddleback Butterflies or Flame Angels.
