These are brief descriptions of the popular dive sites we explore on Oahu. For pictures and more indepth descriptions, please go to the 'TOURS' page on this website. Depths listed are max depths and many sites are multi-level dives. The marine life listed are what I have seen more than a few times at these sites. Of course, the ocean will always dictate what we will see and the marine life listed here are not at these sites all of the time. There is always something different and new to discover!
