What You'll Get
Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you're confident you can do it. Foster self-assurance and condition lungs with today's Groupon: for $48, you get two 40-foot coral reef dives with Island Divers Hawaii (a $99 value). The trip, which explores Buddha Gardens and Turtle Canyons, lasts three to four hours and embarks from Keahole Street in Hawaii Kai via the boat Dive Barge. Certified divers will go on a two-tank dive, while uncertified divers will go on a one-tank dive with an instructor.
With professional and safe service, Island Divers Hawaii's grizzled, gill-breathing guides help dilettante divers explore the dark depths of Davey Jones' Locker. Island Divers Hawaii takes seafarers to an array of dive sites in the Oahu area. The finger reefs at Turtle Canyons, just off Hawaii Kai, teem with reef fish and many varieties of eel. In between playing tag with sea turtles and "Got your nose" with electric eels, dive masters will point out sights and spectacles. As you drip-dry back aboard the ship, Island Divers Hawaii provide drinking water so that you can geek out with your fellow aquanauts about the salt on your skin, the colors of the reef, and the best underwater wrestling techniques.
- The crew was fully engaged both in and out of the water…Between dives they talked to us about other things to do on the island from hikes to places to eat. They genuinely seemed to care about us having a good time in our vacation. – pizzaguyx, TripAdvisor
- The staff is professional, safety conscious, and promotes FUN. They know all the great spots and will educate you on the array of sea life you observe. – John R., Yelp

About Island Divers Hawaii
Though he earned a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the University of California San Diego, Matt Zimmerman decided to pursue his love of the ocean instead of science and move to Oahu. He founded Island Divers Hawaii there as a way to share his enthusiasm for scuba diving as well as the discoveries it can share, from intricate coral to schools of fish locked in a never-ending struggle for tenure. Zimmerman and his knowledgeable staff teach dive courses for curious students and lead boat charters that give divers the chance to test their new skills. Not only that, these operations happen in the pristine waters of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary in Maunalua Bay, where swimmers share space alongside oceanic giants.
