An ideal scuba instructor explains the correct technique, use of equipment, and safety protocols to all their students. In the scuba diving course, students start out with shallow dives, gradually increasing their depth as they gain confidence and competence as more experienced divers. Each scuba dive is carefully planned to provide opportunities for divers of all levels to see the amazing marine life located in the waters around Hawaii. We also have dive sites in the Oahu area, each designed for novice to advanced scuba divers.
Manini Dive Company offers PADI certification for experienced divers. Our PADI Open Water Certification course is designed to allow students to complete the training in three days through small group, semi-private, or one-on-one training.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Course is a three-day training course that includes five dives and a fun dive. This scuba certification requires students complete a deep dive and a navigation dive, with three additional elective dives.
Our scuba certification and PADI courses near Honolulu are offered throughout the year. Students can book online to schedule their training.
As part of our introductory dive package, we supply all the equipment and gear you need. There is no need to have any prior dive experience to enjoy this amazing underwater adventure. Many of our novice divers love the experience so much that they come back to complete their PADI certification, making them licensed divers in depths of 100 feet anywhere around the world.

First time diving in the states, and it couldn’t have been any better! Scuba Diving was on my to-do list while visiting Hawaii and Max was able to make it happen at last minute notice. He provided a fun and laid-back environment and set up the equipment to make the transition to the water effortless. Our first dive was on a double wreck, the YO-257, which was absolutely mesmerizing! I was able to practice my buoyancy by swimming through openings in both of the ships. The second was a reef dive that’s shaped like a horseshoe. We saw SO many green sea turtles, and Max was able to find a baby octopus! Overall, It was a great experience and would book a dive trip again with Max.
