What To Expect On Your Tour


Are you interested in an underwater tour, and would like to learn more about what to expect on the excursion? Get everything you need to know, here!

The meeting location is located at Keahole St, behind the McDonalds. Go down the stairs behind the office building, and meet up at the picnic tables near the boat.

After being greeted by our friendly crew, you will board our 50’ power catamaran boat.  We have complimentary chips and water for you to snack on during the tour.  After a 5-10 minute boat ride out to the dive site, our captain and crew will give you a briefing on how to use the scooters, the hand gestures you will be using while we are under water to communicate with your diver, and where the snorkel gear is located on the boat.  During the 2-hour tour passengers will use the scooters for 20 minutes and may swim or snorkel around the boat. (when not in the scooters).  The snorkeling equipment is also included in the tour.  We have complimentary wetsuit tops/jackets and life jackets you may use while you are snorkeling.

When it is you turn to get into the scooter, you will climb down a short dive ladder where your safety diver will be waiting for you with your scooter.  The diver will help you get from the boat to the scooter safely.  You will need to hold your breath for 1-3 seconds to duck your head under the water to get into the scooter.  Once inside the scooter, you can breathe normally, wipe your face, etc.  Once you are comfortably in the scooter, your safety diver will help you descend 8-10 feet below the surface of the water.  Your safety diver will be with you the entire 20 minutes.  You will see many types of tropical fish, the Hawaiian green sea turtle, and possibly an octopus or pod of dolphins!  After 20 minutes, your diver will help you drive your scooter back to the boat, where they will help you get safely back to the swim ladder on the boat.   While in the scooter, one of our divers will also take pictures of you and/or your group, for priceless memories of your underwater adventure! underwater-selfie

After all passengers have participated in the submarine scooter activity, you will take the short boat ride back to our dock where you will have the opportunity to purchase the pictures and/or video the diver took of you. If you are prone to motion sickness, you may want to take something (such as Dramamine), or come wearing motion sickness wristbands. 

Our crew members are patient, kind, and ready to show you an underwater experience of a lifetime! Check availability to book your tour now.
