Tour description provided by Viator

If you’re a certified scuba diver, explore what lies beneath Oahu’s turquoise waters on this diving adventure! Enjoy the scenic ride on the dive boat before you head underwater. Visit a sunken fighter plane, a sunken barge, a sea cave, Turtle Canyons, Koko Crater and coral reefs. Use of all diving equipment, including two tanks of air, is included on this 4.5-hour Hawaiian excursion.

Note: This tour is for certified divers only.

Head underwater to explore what lies beneath the sparkling Pacific Ocean off Oahu’s coast. It’s a sensational smorgasbord of dive sites! You adventure starts as you cruise comfortably on the dive boat to the first dive location (approximately 20 minutes).

Note: You must be a certified scuba diver. Your credentials will be inspected before you dive.

Dive sites:
Koko Crater: These ledges of volcanic craters are home to many species of tropical fish, eels and octopi. Dive depth is about 40 feet (12 meters).
Sea Cave: Visit this large cave, a great place to observe many rare and beautiful fish and some amazing coral gardens.
Kahala Barge: This small barge was sunk in just the right spot for a dive. Just below the barge is a cave. Dive depth is about 65-85 feet (20-26 meters).
Corsair Fighter Plane: In 1946, this WWII fighter plane ran out fuel on a training mission and was ditched in the ocean!
Other sites: Turtle Canyons, Palea Point, Fantasy Reef and more.

Water temperature typically ranges between 70 to 75 degrees F (21 to 24 C) from November to April and 75 to 80 degrees F (24 to 27 C) from May to October.

Shipwrecks option:
If you’re a shipwrecks buff or just want another option for diving, choose the Shipwrecks option to spend approximately 30-45 minutes exploring the YO-257, a Navy yard oiler built in the 1940s. Then, climb back aboard the dive boat to cruise to the next shipwreck location, the Sea Tiger (a 20-minute trip). You’ll have another 30-45 minutes exploring the Sea Tiger at approximately 100 feet (30 meters) below the surface. Sunk in 1999 as an artificial reef, the Sea Tiger is home to the early stages of marine life growth.
