Tyler is an amazing scuba instructor. He's patient, smart, and exudes confidence. He goes above and beyond with his students. For example, I didn't pass an initial skill w/my group and he took me out personally on Easter to finalize my certification. Despite my anxiety he was supportive and nurturing. Anyone who dives with or is instructed my Tyler will not be disappointed. He's simply fantastic and always professional.  Jennifer Pierce

Tyler is the best scuba instructor...took me from OW to Instructor. Every dive with him is an awesome experience. My Wife and I love his dive briefings. He taught us both that safety is top priority followed by fun!

Short Version: Awesome, Awesome Awesome! Safe, Courteous, Customer Service Driven. Tyler himself is one of the most knowledgeable instructors in the sport. He will take you to amazing dive spots at a great price!! 


My family and I are members of the Long Island Divers Association out of Long Island New York. We have been diving for over 15 years and have dove all over the world. I came to Oahu for a few months and did a number of dives with various dive companies out there. Diving with Tyler blew them all away. Overall the customer service he provided as well as the safe diving experience was unlike what you will get anywhere in Honolulu. 

Tyler's Oahu Scuba does a fantastic job of providing a true vacation like experience for anyone visiting the island. The boat or vans are always gassed up and ready to go before any of the customers even arrive. You are greeted with a warm smile and a firm handshake. The day continues when Tyler engages in light conversation with you as he ensures that everyone has the proper gear they need prior to leaving the dock or shop. If you forget something of your own its never a problem...he always have extra gear just in case!

Once everyone is geared up Tyler does a fantastic job of doing safety dive brief just before arriving to the dive site. He have numerous dive sites that he goes to see all sorts of aquatic life, some only indigenous to hawaii. The dives are led by an instructor who ensures that you will see the best of what that particular reef has to offer. 

Tyler's Oahu Scuba puts safety before everything else and make the experience one of the best the island has to offer. I highly recommend Tyler's Oahu Scuba. Tyler the head instructor is fantastic. He is truly gifted at making you feel like you truly are on vacation. He truly puts a great deal of effort into getting everything into place behind the scenes to make YOUR VACATION one of the best! Joel Jlipz

A wonderful Instructor. Very knowledgeable, thorough, and easy to work with. Easily breaks down instruction, and quite patient with the novice. Doesn't try to push you past your limits, but seeks to place you at ease always. Rebekah Buedel

Tyler is hands-down the most professional SCUBA instructor I have had the privilege of diving with. As a new diver, Tyler handled most of my certification- from Advanced Open Water through Master SCUBA Diver. As a student, his attention to detail and patience reassured me. When I chose to cross over to the professional side, Tyler spent countless hours helping me master the challenges of the Divemaster course- dive theory kicked my butt, but he helped it click! Tyler also proved invaluable during my IDC, helping us refine our lesson plans and always having an experience to relate to a particular portion of the material.


As a coworker, Tyler set the bar high and if I was unsure of something all I ever had to do was ask, "Would Tyler do this?" to know which way to go.

And if you think he's good in the water, you should see him at karaoke! Cathal DeJoseph

My children spent several awesome weeks with Tyler Silber who is the best scuba instructor EVER! He puts safety first but always managed to show us a good time and cool fish. My 16-year old got her Master Diver certification and Nitrox specialty from Tyler. My 13-year old got her Open Water and Advanced and the 10-year old got his Open Water and Adventure certifications. Tyler knows all of the sites in and around Oahu and has earned his impeccable reputation.

Mahalo, Tyler -- you totally rocked it! Karin Walser

I have a nickname for this man..."The Jacque Cousteau" of Hawai'i. He not only has amazing abilities as a diver and an instructor but also has the spirit of aloha! Em Leialei

In my less than humble opinion, there's no one more knowledgeable about scuba diving Oahu than Tyler. He knows the territory, the people, flora and fauna. He's amazingly nice and patient. I trained with him from novice to divemaster, and I love the guy like a brother even though he is San Francisco Giants fan. Craig Fujii

My very first ocean dives after becoming open water certified were with Tyler. He was so awesome and made the diving easy for me. He was kind, helpful, courteous, and fantastic in the customer service area. When I went back a year later, myself now an instructor, I still dove with Tyler for the same reasons. He went out of his way to accommodate my schedule. Anytime I go to Hawaii, I'll bypass all other shops just to dive with him! Scuter Markakis

It is an honor and privilege to dive with Tyler. Tyler has devoted his life to becoming a leader in the field of diving. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, and safety oriented, he has a heart of gold, and a smile on his face 24/7. He absolutely loves what he does, and his passion for diving is contagious. Always keeping safety his top priority, Tyler makes sure every dive is well planned, and an absolute joy. No matter your level of expertise, Tyler will make sure you have an amazing dive experience. Havilah Wardle
