about Dive kauai
If you’re looking for a scuba diving company with years of experience and a fun personality you have come to the right place. Dive Kauai and its trained scuba divers have been the place to go for scuba diving in Kauai for years. Whether you’re a beginning scuba diver that needs some training in the pool, or if you’re an advanced certified scuba diver, we have the right diving spots for you.
First time (non-certified) divers will experience the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, which covers the fundamental rules and guidelines of safe scuba diving. This experience can also be applied toward your PADI Open Water Certification. After a detailed, hands-on orientation, divers will enter shallow water and practice four basic scuba-related skills. These skills are designed to build confidence and to show you just how easy scuba diving really is. After satisfactorily completing the skills portion of your lesson, you are qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 40 feet under the direct supervision of our PADI instructors.
The entire process for a 2 tank introductory dive experience from arrival to departure takes approximately 4 ½ hours. Should you choose to only do only a 1 tank dive, the approximate time will be 3 hours from arrival to departure.
Certified divers will enjoy exploring Kauai’s beautiful reef systems. All necessary scuba equipment is provided, including a full length wetsuit for extra warmth. Certified divers will enjoy an interesting site and marine biology orientation. Our detailed site briefings include an explanation of all aspects of the dive such as depth, topography, marine life and safety procedures. Our marine biology briefings include fish identification along with interesting facts about endemic and rare species that may be encountered at each site. Each dive is approximately 45 minutes long depending upon air consumption with an average depth of 35-60 feet. Divers will enjoy a relaxing surface interval which always includes delicious snacks, cold beverages, and a hot water shower, and then it’s back to the water for your second dive.
The average time for a standard 2-tank dive experience is approximately 4 hours from arrival to departure. Should you choose to only do a 1 tank dive, the approximate time from arrival to departure is approximately 2 hours.
This tour is for certified divers only. This thrilling experience allows divers to observe Hawaii’s underwater night life at its best. Divers are likely to encounter octopus, lobsters, eels, sleeping turtles, and a nocturnal phenomenon called bioluminescence. Each diver is equipped with all necessary scuba equipment, along with a super bright underwater primary light and a backup light. Each night dive includes a detailed site and marine biology orientation along with specific night diving procedures. Night dives typically last approximately 45 minutes depending upon air consumption with an average depth of 25-40 feet. We offer a two tank twilight/night dive for those divers who would like to see the best of both worlds; the reef before and after the sun goes down.
The PADI Adventure Diver Course consists of 3 adventure dives. Upon completion of the adventure dives, you are recognized as a PADI Adventure Diver, which makes you a more experienced diver than simply having the PADI Open Water Diver rating.

Deep, Cavern, Ice and Wreck Diver specialties are excluded from the Adventure Diver options.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is a 2-day course which contains 5 adventure dives. Two of the required core dives for this certification are a Navigation Dive and a Deep Dive. 3 elective dives are chosen by you in addition to the 2 core dives. The choices for the elective dives come from the following: AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation, AWARE Fish Identification, Digital Underwater Photographer, Diver Propulsion Vehicle (Underwater Scooter), Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver, Equipment Specialist, Multilevel Diver, Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Project AWARE Specialist, Search and Recovery Diver, Underwater Naturalist, or Underwater Navigator.

You must also complete a certified CPR course before the end of this class to qualify for the certification.
