SHORE DIVE TOUR

Don’t waste your time swimming around in circles. Come dive with Oceanus! We have the most knowledgeable instructors on the island.  Diving with one of our local instructors has many benefits other than being dove underwater.  The Scuba Instructor will show you the fascinating spots of the dive site.  In addition, he or she will manage all of your gear so you don’t have to worry about breaking it down, putting it together, or cleaning it after each dive.

HOW MUCH IS THE TOUR?

Our basic two tank dive tour from shore is $110.00.  This is includes your scuba rental gear and tanks.  Considering a full set of rental gear alone costs $50.00 per day, this is great bargain.

WHERE WILL WE TAKE YOU?

We are surrounded by water, so you can literally go diving just about anywhere on Oahu. That said, however, we only take our guests diving at the best locations.  Some of the places we go diving are

(a) HANAUMA BAY NATURE PRESERVE — KAIMUKI

Because Hanauma Bay is a nature preserve, new guests are required to watch a 9 minute video that tells you about the 400 varietys of local fish that inhabit the bay as well as  explains the importants of respecting and preserving the bay.  

(b) KAHE POINT BEACH PARK a.k.a ELECTRIC BEACH — WAIANAE

Kahe Point Beach Park is a State Park located on the Wayward side of Oahu. It sits next to the Farrington Highway across from the Hawaiian Electric Kahe Powerplant.  Hence the nickname “Electric Beach.”  The beach entry lies only a short distance from the parking lot.  The site is popular among snorkelers, skin divers and scuba divers because of the abundance of marine animals the congregate at the end of pipes that come ouf the sand at about 24 feet deep.   

(c) MAGIC ISLAND — WAIKIKI

Magic Island is a small man-made peninsula in Honolulu, Hawaii, adjacent to Ala Moana Beach Park and the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. It was created in 1964 as the site of a resort complex, but was subsequently converted to a park.  The name was changed to “Aina Moana,” but the new name Magic used infrequently.  The inside pool like area of Magic Island is frequented by scuba divers on a daily basis.  Boxed Jellies, Moray Eels, and Moa Spotted Boxed fish and other marine life can spotted living here.  Whereas on the outside of area of Magic Island offers more aquatic life in which divers often encounter Hawaii’s Green Turtles.   

(d) SHARKS COVE — NORTH SHORE

 Located at the northern part of Pupukea Beach Park, Shark’s Cove is a marine life sanctuary that got its name from a popular folk story that avers when seen from the sky, the cove’s outline looks like a shark.  With an abundance of sea-life organisms, Shark’s Cove is a fantastic dive and snorkeling site. In fact, it is perhaps the most frequented snorkeling and scuba diving location in all of the North Shore. The cove is home to Sea turtles, Morays, lobsters, Day Octopus, Eagle Rays, Pennant Bannerfishes, Bullethead Parrotfish, Black Spotted Pufferfish, Threadfin Butterfish, and numerous species that can be seen in as little as 3 to 5 feet.  There are many lava tube swim-throughs, a few caverns, and many narrow canyons for divers to enjoy.
