Wreck Diving on Oahu: Let the Good Times Roll!

I tend to think that wreck diving on Oahu is one of the most overlooked aspects of our island. Did you know that there are more wrecks in our waters than you could possiblydive in a week’s worth? They each have a special and unique story. Airplanes, military landing crafts, freighters, barges, small vehicles and massive Navy ships are just a few of the gems hiding below the surface.

Here we see the stern of the Sea Tiger wreck of the south shore of Oahu. She’s home to countless turtles, eel, octopus and the occasional passing ray, dolphin or monk seal. What an amazing treat it is to view a fully intact 175+ foot vessel lying peacefully and upright on the ocean floor.

When you next plan a trip to Hawaii, think of Oahu and her many storied wrecks. Contact us here at Kaimana Divers and we’ll show you why we think wreck diving is out of this world!

Look what we have here!

Diving on Oahu is one of those rare treats that I wish everyone could experience. Every dive is totally unique and our crew got a rare treat while wreck diving off the shores of Waikiki. Here we encounter 3 squid swimming in perfect unison right off the wreck of the San Pedro.

Give us a shout the next time you are looking to scuba dive here on Oahu. Daily dives since 2006!!! Come check out what our awesome customers are saying about us

A hui ho!

Scuba Diving in Waikiki….. America’s #1 Urban Dive Destination!

I know what you are thinking…… Isn’t Waikiki all about fruity drinks, Hawaii 5-0 and surfing? Not so fast! Did you know that just off the shores of the most famous stretch of sand in Hawaii there is world class diving to be found year round. From WW2 Era wrecks to outstanding reefs chock full of critters your next Hawaii scuba diving adventure is only a step away.

Come check out this awesome GoPro footage we captured while diving with some guests here this past year. Featured are two of our shallow dive sites Turtle Canyons and Horseshoe Reef: Click HD for best resolution and ALOHA!

 

Shark Week on Oahu….

Every year it’s the same thing. The Discover Channel starts airing “Shark Week” programming and no one calls to book a dive. I can tell you that in over 8000 dives on Oahu I have rarely even seen a shark and never seen one acting aggressively. What we tend to come across are these happy fellows:

oahu, diving, shark, honolulu, waikiki

 

This amazing snap was taken by longtime friend and club diver Susanna. Pictured is the white tip reef shark and unlike most sharks he can hide in caves and doesn’t need to be in the act of swimming to pump water over his gills.

This makes him a delight for underwater photographers who can take the time to get the shot right. Their actions are very calm and as long as you respect their space it is possible to capture some amazing close ups. Hopefully you will get a chance to spot one on your next Hawaii scuba diving adventure!

See ya in the blue….

Summer Antics….. Diving on Oahu!

Aloha Everyone….. summer is one of the true joys of diving on Oahu and this year has been no exception.

Over the past 7 years we have met some amazing people and families. The summer months mean that diving conditions improve on the North Shore and we are able to dive our favorite spots like Shark’s Cove and 3 Tables on the regular. If you haven’t experienced these on your own they are truly unique.

Imagine crystal clear 80 degree water and lava formations and tubes coming in from all angles. The unique lighting and cool critters combined with easy shore diving entries make our North Shore spots legendary.

In fact, I’ve lead so many dives there over the years with seasoned divers and upon coming up after an hour underneath have heard “That was the BEST dive of my life” I agree.

Here we are goofing off underwater…… come dive Oahu with us this summer.

Mahalo!

Scuba Diving Spring Break 2013…… Wooooooooo!!!

waikikidivephotoDiving in Hawaii is just one of those experiences that is hard to imagine if you have never done it. So much to think about and so many critters coming in from all angles. This spring has been no exception. Whales breaching, turtles cruising, dolphins spinning and all set against the backdrop of a blue sky and a shining sun.

Man, it’s great to be able to live and dive everyday here on Oahu.

Lot’s of new sightings just this past few weeks and our longtime diver Susanna was fortunate enough to snap this photo of a Flying Gurnard while doing some Oahu scuba diving with the KD crew last week. These critters are super rare and I can only recall about 4 other sightings in the past 8 years. Just goes to show you that you never know who might join you for a dive.
