Corsair and Koko Craters with Oahu Diving.Com


Doing Advanced Open Water work, they were all certified and all stoked about being in the water. My divers had requested the Corsair, so me being the nice guy I am I agreed . LOL. It was a good choice. Vis was awesome, just a mild current and before you knew it we had the divers off into the water. Shawn you owe me one ! LOL

A couple BIG amberjacks were cruising around. Also large schools of pennant butterfly fish and yellow striped snapper. The HUGE moray is still living under the wing - I wonder how many octopus this thing ate that day ?. It’s been a while since I got to dive the plane and it was good to get back and see it.

Dive two was more training, this time with a compass at Koko Craters. I had divers swimming all over working the bezel, lubberlines and swimming square patterns . I manage to see a turtle, I almost missed it was it swam over the top of me as I was looking for little creatures in the sand.

But guys thanks for diving with me today and I look forward to seeing you out on the boat soon.

Pink House and Koko Craters- East Side Oahu



Pink House is a great dive that most dive companies seldom do. We at Oahu Diving .Com try to do this spot at least once a week. This is a drift dive but not to deep ; allowing long bottoms with a feel of a deep dive. Many white tip reef sharks hanging out on the wall area which was a thrill for all of us.I got a great shot was you can see in this pretty big cave of a sleeping white tip reef shark. Way cool. After this dive it was on to Koko Craters, great visibility with a few turtles hanging around- mostly sleeping. As always we will be back to dive these cool Oahu scuba diving locations.

Turtle Canyons and Koko Craters- Oahu Scuba Diving



Dives today were to Turtle Canyons and Koko Craters. We had Katie out for her first experience of Diving with her friend Ken, a regular diver, and Erio making a return after a layoff. Turtle Canyons turned up a few eels and some pipe fish along with lots of colorful Hawaiian fish. Current was non existent down but the choppy conditions on the surface made thing difficult getting underwater.

Then on to Koko craters where viz was excellent and turned up a few eels and lots of turtles, under ledges, on the surface and swimming around. Awesome. We also came across a spotted eel who seemed he wanted to play along with an assortment of colorful fish.

A beautiful day to be out on the water.
Thanks again guys. I certainly enjoyed myself today. Come back and dive with us again soon.

Pink House and Koko Craters- East Side Oahu



We had a great afternoon diving today with a full boat and lots of training.

Jeff took some students on their 1st 2 dives towards certification. I had a group of friends doing a few photo dives.
At Koko Craters, a small turtle followed us wanting to play. We also saw some snowflake eel and zebra eels out swimming. Breaching whales entertained us during our surface interval.
Over to Pink House for our 2nd dive – more exploring and lots of fun. We found a big sting ray, octopus, lots of eels, turtles, nudibranch and as well as colorful fish. Ok I am tired now, gotta get some Starbucks coffee.
We certainly enjoyed ourselves today. Come back and dive with us again soon. Oahu scuba diving.

Seatiger Shipwreck and Turrtle Canyons - Southshore


What a great day today. Mark and Jane Murphy of Ohio went out with us for a fun filled day of diving on the Kahala Kai. First dive was the Sea Tiger . Vis was pretty good, with hardly any current. On the decks at 90m feet we decided to venture into the ship. Penetrating from the stern of the boat we made our way through the engine room and up to the bridge. All in all this dive lasted about 25 minutes. Second dive today was Turtle Canyons, I love this place. Plenty of cool Hawaiian green sea turtles. DId 45 minutes there then back for lunch. Thank you Mark and Jane for the coffee at Starbucks and we will see you next year for round 2 of Oahu diving.

Turtle Canyons Waikiki and Horseshoe Reef - Oahu Scuba Diving



Another great day on the water today aboard the Kahala Kai dive boat. Today , we dove the southside due to slightly strong winds facing the east side of the island. Turtle canyons was a blast, Andrew and I must have hung out with 10 turtles. A killer size eel was chilling under a turtle which surprised both Andrew and I. Be careful where you put you hands at !!!!! 38 minutes later we were back on board already talking about the next dive. We did the Kewalo reefs , close to the channel but Andrew was an excellent diver making this dive a joy ! Nice 40 minutes , water very clear and found a few bottles !!!! Yea baby.

Oahu scuba diving - Turtle Canyons and Horseshoe reef




Today was a wonderful day of scuba diving on Oahu. First dive was with 1 first time diver Terry and 1 certified diver Todd, so we headed to Turtle Canyons. Conditions were very nice with vis around 70 feet. Turtles everywhere and cool reef fish all around. We spent around 30 minutes on this dive then returned to the boat. Since the wind was blowing around 10 knots we decided to hoist the sails and cruise down to the next spot which was Horseshoe Reef. Great dive , max depth was 40 feet and found a cool octopus. No sharks this time, maybe tomorrow !

Not a bad at Oahu Diving .Com . See you all next year.

Great day. We had a incredible morning and afternoon. Our first dive was the YO-257 so we headed towards Diamond Head to check out the YO-257. Once down we seen the Atlantis Subamarine, a 40 passenger sub . Funny to see everyone taking pictures of us. We also couldn’t help but notice all of the amazing life on this wreck!! Turtles, eels, and more sharks!! Our next dive was turtle canyons and boy was the visibility amazing. Again, turtles eels and sharks. Thanks to all of my divers for such an amazing day!!Bruce , Cathrine and Keiko! Brian Sato

Corsair and Fantasy Reef with Oahu Diving.Com




I had Chris and Susan with me today. Both of them signed up for the Advanced Open Water class YES!!! So, we headed out for our deep dive first. The Corsair was the best place for such a dive because we could hit 120Ft on the bottom. After some short addition tests on the surface, we all headed down the line nice and easily and slowly to settle in the sand on the bottom. Then the real tests started. We were testing to see if anyone was under the influence of Nitrogen (nitrogen narcosis). WOW, none of them were, so we compared depth gauges and toured around the plane. We spotted a devilish looking Hawaiian lizard fish, lots of butterfly fish, and some Sargent majors. With air nearing the 1000 psi mark, we headed back to the mooring line to start our ascent and safety stop. We all timed out 3 minutes and kept a vigilant eye on their depth gauge to stay at 15 feet. A perfectly executed deep dive!
For our second dive sight we wanted to make sure that Susan(her last day diving with us) got to see something other than Koko craters. So we headed over to fantasy for our navigation dive. I settled into a nice little bowl in the reef and started to do navigation skills with the students. While I was working with one student the rest were exploring close by to see what they could find. I heard of Moray Eels, nudibranchs, and all sorts of fish. Also, a turtle decided to swim on by while we were counting fin cycles. A very nice treat during this skill laden dive. Everyone completed all the necessary skills in time, and we headed back up the line easily to round off the day. Another excellent day out on Maunalua Bay with Oahu Diving .Com. Congratulations to my divers today for completing their first two Advanced Dives. We hope to see you all soon to finish off those certifications! JEFF !!!!!!

Oahu scuba diving - Turtle Canyons and Horseshoe reef


What another great day for scuba diving here on Oahu. Today I was diving the southshore locations with 2 first time divers , Joe and Chante. congratulations on the dives, both of you did really well. The first dive was at turtle canyons which was pleasant with 6 turtles hanging out on the finger making this dive top notch !Up in the shallow section of the reef we found a smaller white tip reef shark hanging around , about 4 foot in length with shark teeeeeeeeth ! Next we did a 40 minute surface interval and headed to horseshoe reef for a cool 40 foot dive. A very large trumpet fish was hanging around the mooring line down by the coral. Very tame and didn't seem to mind any of us. Oahu scuba diving with Oahudiving.Com is always right on ! ERIK :)

Mini Barge & Fantisy Reef -Southeast Side Oahu


Super epic surface conditions. Unbelievable ! So we hooked up at baby barge, no current at all the buoy line had zero tension. We had a super light bottom current and we headed out towards shark cave. 3 White tip reef sharks slept in the cave. Two of the three took off after the crew blew a few bubbles but one stuck around for a quick photo session, then it was back to the barge caves to check out the HUGE turtles and then over the barge to get some nice nudibranch photos. Fantasy reef was our second site. A relatively small reef but super interesting. Spotted a few more huge turtles and 1 free swimming white tip! Love the sharks!!!! So stoked to see 4 in a day...Hope they’re making a comeback.
Aloha!!!
Andyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Mini Barge & Koko Craters -Southeast Side Oahu


I would call this a great day! The surface conditions were less than favorable so, of course, we said, "Lets do it !” We all giant strided off the boat with ease and efficiency. Once everyone was in, down the mooring line we went. As briefed, we made one loop around the barge, poked our heads here and there, and saw some excellent butterfly fish and others. I then gathered the group and headed for the shark cave, usually we see 3 or 4 whitetip reef sharks snoozing away. On the way I found a large yellow margin moray eel that intrigued some of our divers, we stopped took a few pictures and on we went. We also saw 2 or 3 different turtles swimming around which was a beautiful sight. Finally, we made it to the shark cave and low and behold, there was one good sized white tip reef shark in there for us to look at. All crowding around the cave made the shark a little nervous, and once he found his way out, he made his escape along the reef; but not without swimming along side us for awhile. An excellent treat for us all today. Back at the line, we headed up nice and slowly to our safety stop, then back on the boat. We quickly headed to calmer waters at Koko Craters which some greatly appreciated.
Down the line at Koko craters we found the back crater. The divers swam around the explored all the edges of the crater. The highlight for most was the very lazy turtle laying on the bottom which let you get very close. Of course this afforded some a great picture. Once everyone was down safely and had a chance to explore we all headed over to the other craters to see some more turtles and of course the Buddha statue! Turning around we came back to explore the back crater a bit more. Unfortunately, with the air supply getting lower we had to get back up the line and back on the boat. Another successful and “critter-full” day with Oahudiving.Com. Thank you to everyone on the boat today for diving with us. Mahalo- Andre

Seatiger Shipwreck night dive


Well we did special night dive tonight and boy did we work hard. We had very rough conditions out there tonight with a rippen current. But props to my divers who managed to negotiate the swells on the surface using the lines down to the dive site. On the bottom conditions were better, but still some current. We did out best to stay out of the current using the Seatiger wreck as a sheild. We did find some cool stuff. Some of the divers were greeted by a small white tip reef shark, and most of us were able to view the night octopus who was crawling along the bottom and decided he was going to use me as a hiding place. Pretty cool. But thanks folks for braving the conditions tonight with me, I though the dives was pretty cool. Hope to see you guys out on the boat soon, and hopefully with a little calmer conditions. Oh by the way, we did Nautilus Reef for the second dive. Nice long bottom time and no current YEA ! Andy !!!!!!

Spitting Caves and China Walls - Oahudiving.Com

Although the surface was a bit rocky, the dive was amazing! The Kahala Barge is a huge barge with tons of endemic fish. This was an amazing job on a deep dive. The stern has a huge swim through with enough space for 3 divers.
Dive two was more relaxed, with a drift along China Wall starting at Spitting Caves. A once in a life time opportunity to actually see dolphins while on a dive!! We could here their “squeaks” A full minute before the pod of about 20 came over the top of us! Another day of awesome diving!!

Oahu scuba diving on the Corsair


Two Excellent dives. With only two divers on the boat today, Mark , Ed and I all jumped in the water to head for the corsair. After a nice slow descent down the line we explored the cockpit and all the different parts of the wreck. Great pictures of us front of the plane. With a small amount of current running the Garden Eels were also out of their little holes feeding on anything floating by. After a few circles around the wreck, and only a short bottom time, we all headed back up the line. During the surface interval. Over to Koko Craters, we had another excellent dive. 100ft visibility again! We went up to visit the Buddha, of course Ed had to rub it’s tummy for good luck. Back around towards the boat I spotted an Octopus RIGHT OUT IN THE OPEN! Just when I thought we were headed up the line to end the dive, a turtle decides to peak out from underneath a ledge and allow us to get a good close look. After watching the turtle for a couple minutes we all went up the line with smiles on our faces. Another awesome day out with Oahudiving.com.

Andy did a great job with our Discover Scuba Divers in the pool this morning and they were all really excited to dive right in at Koko Craters and were delighted to see some large turtles as well as several Puffers.
Onto Anglers reef for our 2nd dive – we saw so many eels and really should call this site Eel Alley and of course a colorful selection of tropical fish.
To those of you who ventures into the water for the first time today, you did a great job and we hope that you will go on and become certified.
