TOUR REVIEWS

We did 2 days of diving with Devin from Banzai Divers on Oahu.  We are Great Lakes shipwreck divers.  We went out of Honolulu to the Sea Tiger wreck twice and I have never seen such a nice wreck in salt water.  It is upright and intact with amazing sealife.  There was a huge green sea turtle, several white tip sharks, an eel, nudibranchs, frog fish and big schools of fish.  We did our safety stop the first day in a bait ball and had dolphins on our surface interval!  The shallow reefs had lots of turtles, eel and octopus.  The dive sites were very close to the Harbor and the dive day was very efficient.  Devin did a great job showing us around.

I enjoyed my first diving experience with Banzai, it was a lot of fun seeing big fishes that I had never seen at the beach. Devin is a professional diver and a great instructor. (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

I had an epic diving day with Devin at Shark Cove! I am chronically early and Devin was there well before I was setting up and getting everything ready for us. He was super friendly and patient. I got certified when I was 18, I am 44 now, and since then I have been diving only a few times 6 years ago in Monterey, CA. Almost everyone else in my group was either newly certified or limited experience. Devin made sure we were empowered with the confidence to have a safe and fun dive. The directions given were spot on. The fact that he has a huge red van made it really easy. The equipment was in good working order and he provided everything I needed. The guidance through the cove was fantastic! You could probably rent all you gear for a little less than paying Devin but you will miss out on all of his experience. We saw several turtles, tons of fish, several eels, a few octopuses, and even a ray. I would have missed most of that if Devin wasn't there to point it out.If you are a new or inexperienced diver and are thinking of diving in Hawaii, DO IT! Banzai will make it easy and the warm waters and plentiful wildlife will make it the best experience you will have. (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

An amazing morning at Shark's Cove. We met up at 0700 - received a safety brief, set up our gear and walked into the water. We were the only ones on the reef, in the lava tubes for the whole dive. We spent nearly 40 minutes exploring and swimming thru lava tubes, finding octopus and seeing all the fish. We were lucky w/ only 4 in our group. My wife and I and another man w/ his son. Dive Master/Instructor (Adam) was professional, laid back and set the perfect tone/vibe for the dive. Did the Lava Tubes off Shark's Cove, took a break, then Cathedrals (behind the Fire Station). The Cathedrals dive, we were lucky enough to be under a pod of nearly 150-200 Spinner dolphin... it was amazing! Fantastic Dving experience, Thank you Devin and Adam. (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

Adam was an outstanding dive guide. He knew the ins-and-outs of the dive site and did an outstanding job of making my daughter feel confident and safe when she was nervous about entering in a rocky area. (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

Me and my friend Maggie have been diving with Devin for a few years now. We started as extremely rusty Open Water Divers back in 2016 and have come a long way in our diving. Devin is incredibly knowledgable and professional. When Maggie and I went on our first couple dives at Turtle Canyons and Horseshoe Reef just off of Kewalo Basin it was amazing. We felt at ease and planned a couple more dives with Banzai Divers. Eventually, we built up our courage and decided it was time for us to take the next step.Devin introduced us to more amazing dive sites around O'ahu through his PADI Advanced Open Water Course. We learned Underwater Navigation (Pupukea),  Night Diving (Pupukea), and Deep Water Wreck Diving (Sea Tiger). Not only did we earn our AOW through Banzai Divers we took it one step further and earned out Nitrox Enriched Air license. It's been a hot minute since we've dove together. I think we'll be planning our next Wreck Dive soon! (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

While in Oahu, my parents surprised me with a "no experience-refresher dive" at sharks cove. While they are experienced divers, I had yet to ever dive. After booking, I was sent an email to sign an electronic liability form and instructions on where to meet our guide Devin. Me and my kid brother who turned 18 that day met with Devin in the parking lot where we got our gear and he went over basic safety, the gear, and the basics of diving. We suited up and headed down to the water where we regrouped in the water, went over skills then began our dive. As someone with no dive experience, this was an amazing experience. Devin was so helpful and made sure we all felt safe and comfortable. Our dive lasted An hour and fifteen minutes, maybe even a bit longer? Sharks cove was an awesome location as we saw a sea turtle swim within a foot of us, octopus, so many different fish, sea slugs, coral, and much more. Can't wait to see the photos in a few days!!! Will definitely dive with them again on our next trip to the islands. (Feed generated with FetchRSS)

Devin gave us a incredible first diving experience and the highlight of romantic Hawaii getaway, pretty easy even for my wife, as a first-time swimmer. Much better value overall than other diving places and Groupons, considering the service, that photos/videos are free/included, and that its focused on seeing wildlife instead of just teaching how to swim in the shallows. We saw a friendly baby shark and a giant sea turtle with a smiley face on its back when we went on intro dive from the boat on South Shore, which, though an additional $35 each (vs. diving from the North Shore when weather permits) provided us with a 2nd air tank so can scuba dive twice (or more in our case) as long, and giving us a Hawaii boating experience to boot. Great deal, we went with the Groupon rate, securing that ahead of time while still being able to pay on the spot.  This even counts towards diving certification if complete 2 more days of 2 dives each within a 1 year period, starting when we request him to submit this first experience towards that. Even though my wife has no swimming experience, this went pretty well for her, and was even easier than when I started to teach her how to swim or than what snorkeling would be - which is very surprising - as you don't have fins, float/sink control, and don't have to worry about holding your breath or staying at/above the ocean surface.  Tip: If diving from boat leaving the South Shore pier, go to the far left of the pier and walk towards end of the dock near the restrooms (which you should avoid, in general) in order to find the boat, after paying to park (in the left or right lot) at the box in center across the street from the pier, via the CallToPark app or cash/credit.

Great experience. Devin is a great instructor and made scuba diving easy. Clear and simple instructions made everyone feel safe and comfortable going 40 ft underwater. Also he checked on everyone throughout the dive to make sure everyone was good. Highly recommend
