Wanted to try SCUBA diving but not yet certified? Or already certified, but have an uncertified family member or friend who is interested in giving it a try? No problem! One of our professionally trained SCUBA Instructors will teach you the basics and then take you on an introductory tour of the reef to experience the underwater world. This Introductory to SCUBA Diving course consists of 30 minutes of classroom instruction, 30 minutes of pool skills, and two open water dives off our ocean faring boat Moana Mea A‘a for an approximate total of 5 hours. Come see if the exciting world of SCUBA Diving is for you! Restrictions apply.
Guests will check in at the Hilo Ocean Adventures shop on Kamehameha Ave at 8:15am and begin the course at 8:30am. Your Dive instructor will teach you the basics of an introduction to SCUBA during a one hour confined water training session in our heated indoor pool. After your indoor instruction, you will follow your guide to the Wailoa Boat Harbor a block away and board our 28 foot ocean faring dive vessel. Head out past the Hilo Break Wall to our beautiful Hilo coastline where you will enjoy one to two open ocean dives, depending on your level of skill and understanding from the confined water component. The boat will return to the Wailoa Boat Harbor at approximately 1:30pm where your tour will conclude.
