South Shore Boat Diving
Encounter occasional dolphins an abundance of exotic Hawaiian reef fish and beautiful coral formations. Let’s not forget, one of the most exciting creatures we will encounter is the Honu; i.e. the Hawaiian green sea turtle. There is so much to see on these southern coasts in terms of pristine reefs and off-shore caverns that diving in these areas becomes a true pleasure. The fish in these areas are plentiful, the reefs are gorgeous and the weather is almost always sunny and beautiful. Our Captain and crew look forward to sharing their passion and knowledge of marine life and island history with you.

South Shore Kauai Scuba Diving
The animals we encounter at Koloa Landing on a regular basis are: Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, up to seven species of moray eels (including the rare dragon eel), leaf and devil scorpionfish, octopus, hermit crabs, a variety of invertebrates (cone snails, auger snails, helmet snails, shrimp, sea stars, urchins), and hundreds of tropical fish! We also have a pair of Hawaiian scarlet cleaner shrimp who will hop right into your mouth if you let them to clean your teeth! This is their job for the fish living on the reef! On rare occasion, we are lucky enough to encounter frog fish, dolphin, spotted eagle rays and even the elusive Reef or Galapagos shark. During the months of December through April, we are also fortunate to hear the sound of Humpback whales singing during our dives here.

North Shore Kauai Scuba Diving
The animals that we encounter at Tunnels Reef on a regular basis are: large Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, White Tip Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays, schooling Barracuda, and a variety of Silver Jacks. We also see Spiny Lobsters as well as different Nudibranchs inside of the caverns. There is not much coral at this site as the main attraction is the lava tubes and tunnels that make up the formation of the reef itself.
We dive at Tunnels Reef Monday through Friday during the calm summer months, generally from May through September, conditions permitting. There is no diving allowed weekends or holidays at Tunnels Reef due to local regulations.

Scooter Dive: (Underwater Propulsion Vehicles)

The motto is: “Why kick when you can fly?” These state of the art diver propulsion vehicles will pull or push a diver up to 2 ½ miles per hour. Our TUSA SAV-7 “With Saddle” diver propulsion vehicles are shaped like a miniature torpedo and are nearly weightless in the water. The comfortable handles and easy-to-operate trigger make these scooters effortless to operate. The advantages of diving with an underwater scooter are: less energy used, longer bottom times, more distance covered and they’re a ton of fun!
