Are Sub-Scooters Safe?

A Safe Sub-scooter tour in Oahu, Hawaii

One of the most common FAQs we hear is “Are sub-scooters safe?” Yes, they are very safe, if you’re going with an experienced tour company in a safe location, sub-scooter tours are one of the safest, most memorable water activities you can experience. Here are a few things you should know.

  1. Always choose a reputable tour company. The activity is around 15 years old, and here at Island Water Sports Hawaii, we’ve been in operation longer than most sub-scooter tour operators in the world. We know the equipment, the dive location, and are familiar with all aspects of the activity. And we have a well-trained staff of divemasters and instructors!
  2. Communicate with the staff. Although you do not need to know how to swim to enjoy sub-scooters, you should express any concerns you have with the staff. If you’re a little uncomfortable, let them know. Good tour companies know how to make their guests feel safe and comfortable. Our guests are never alone, so you’ll always feel safe.
  3. Know the sub-scooter restrictions. While almost anyone can participate, sub-scooters are not a one-size-fits-all activity. Riders must be at least 10 years old, at least four feet tall, under 350 pounds, and must be in good health.
  4. Check how deep you’ll go. We have an amazing location in Maunalua Bay, Oahu, and our tours only need to go 7-8 feet deep to experience spectacular sea life. The current isn’t strong, and the sub-scooter is connected to a floating buoy.
