Not a certified diver? No problem! Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try SCUBA diving but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. While not a SCUBA certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least ten years old. No prior experience with SCUBA diving is necessary, but you need to be in good physical health. 

Discovering Scuba Diving Ala Wai Boat Harbor Ala Moana is the perfect way to see the world from a whole new perspective. Explore what Hawaii has to offer; sign up today! Your course will include: 

  • Preparation guide for equipment and dive site 
  • Dive location training, demonstrating skills like your first breath underwater, primary navigation with compass and depth gauge, etc., all while in shallow water. 
  • Practice your buoyancy on one of our aluminum benches, or try floating weightlessly in our pool with a hands-free attitude adjustment. 
  • Review safety issues, including eustatic variations/change in atmospheric pressure/surface recovery necessary at 3 meters depth. The list goes on!

For the thrill-seeker who’s always been curious about SCUBA diving but doesn’t have time for certification, this is your chance to find out what it’s like without having to commit. Enjoy the underwater experience on a short (about an hour) boat trip along beautiful Ala Wai Boat Harbor and Ala Moana beach. The difference between wild fish swimming below you and high schoolers surfing over your head will be unexpected! And best of all, since this tour only lasts from 9:00 am-11:00 am, you’ll still have plenty of time in your day to do other fun things too.

Walk on the beach and swim with turtles. Discovering Scuba Diving is one of the most popular ways to experience Hawaii, even if you’re not a certified diver! The world-renowned scuba diving organization PADI will teach you everything you need to know for your underwater journey. You’ll get transported by boat from Ala Wai Boat Harbor in downtown Honolulu out past Ala Moana Beach Park—all while exploring 15 acres of shallow coral reefs teeming with tropical fish. Suppose that’s not enough to make your heart race. In that case, owning an introductory certificate from PADI (not an actual certification) will at least arouse your curiosity about being a full SCUBA certified diver.

It’s time to grow up, but you don’t have to give into adulthood just yet. From now on, please allow us to help you discover a place where you can chase your childhood dreams as they become reality-not fade into memory. Yes, I saved the best for last-scuba diving! As a PADI professional instructor, I’m passionate about these underwater adventures. I would love nothing more than to share them with you on board our private boat in Waikiki Harbor (outside of Ala Moana), Hawaii. 

On this journey with me, we’ll explore scuba diving by going over safety guidelines and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing SCUBA equipment. Dream a deep dream, wake up in the morning air. Imagine that space where you are now suffocating could be right beside an untamed sea or as far out to sea as you dare swim. Dare yourself! It’s time to scuba dive and live with the waves and currents like never before. The adventure of getting so close feet-to-fins is what we call SCUBA diving Ala Wai Boat Harbor Ala Moana – aboard our private cabin cruises for your pleasure only. Come on down and get smothered in saltwater already!
