Hawaii Scuba Diving Locations

Oahu dive locations are endless. Getting to the right diving spot requires a dive boat. Beach dives although plentiful do take a lot more work and effort and in the end the reward is far below that what you could have seen diving from a boat.

Oahu south shore dives are hands down some of the better dives you will find on Oahu. Most people think areas such as Honolulu and Waikiki may ruin coastal diving locations in Oahu. Frankly speaking south shore of Oahu with wreck dives such as the yo-257 or the Sea Tiger, then around Diamondhead, The Corsair and the Barges are some of the most requested dives.

Oahu Diving Locations

  • Based on weather and surf conditions
  • year round diving in Oahu
  • Wreck diving in Hawaii
  • Great beginner or first time diver locations
