Top tier dive operator. Small boat, friendly & professional crew, knowledgeable dive masters. Had a great wreck dive close to the harbor. Definitely recommend!! Five out of five stats!

This was my second time scuba diving and definitely the best time! This crew was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!! You get to practice basic skills in the ocean... read more and then complete 2 dives in 2 different locations.

We were referred to HDA by another dive shop that was busy, we lucked out big time!
My wife and I are PADI advanced certified, but our kids (15... read more years old) are pretty much first time divers. Jake was amazing, super patient and extremely knowledgeable, as a parent I felt very safe leaving my kiddos with him. One of my kids previously refused to dive, but with Jake's shepherding he went down and thoroughly enjoyed himself! Their first dive was a practice one to help build their skills and confidence.
My wife and I were paired with Lauren, whilst we were advanced certified it's been about 5 years since our last dive, so we were super rusty! Lauren could have made us feel inexperienced due to this, but instead she was amazing, like Jake she was also super experienced!
At one point, my wife felt ill (emotional!) (a side effect from the antibiotics) and the team took great care of her until she was ready enough to go on our second dive. Our second dive was with the kids which was amazing. We loved sharing that first experience with them.
I would thoroughly recommend HDA and I will ensure that next time I'm in Waikiki I book with them in advance - I recommend you do the same!
P.S. Lauren we're sorry we forgot to give your hair tie back!
