Scuba Diving Oahu


Winter is one of the most popular times to visit the Hawaiian Islands. The tropical weather attracts thousands of “snowbirds” from the mainland every year as people seek to escape the cold and snow and replace it with the warm sunshine and natural beauty of Hawaii.

Not coincidentally, winter is also when many of Hawaii’s biggest events are scheduled. In January, Oahu’s Waialae Country Club hosts the annual Sony Open, one of the biggest golf events of the year and a highlight of the PGA Tour.

A total of 144 of the world’s best professional golfers, as well as golf fans from around the world, will descend on Oahu for the charity event, which has raised more than $15 million for local not-for-profit agencies since 1999.

Football in Paradise

Oahu also hosts the annual NFL Pro Bowl each January. Held the weekend before the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl serves as the All-Star game for professional football, bringing the best players from each team for a showcase event that pits the AFC against the NFC.

Holiday Basketball adventereous

If you can’t wait for college basketball to begin, the EA Sports Maui Invitational and the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic are two pre-season tournaments that showcase some of college basketball’s biggest talents.

Former hoops legends Michael Jordan, Isaiah Thomas, Chris Weber, and Nick Collison are among the players who have played in the tournament in the past.

Endurance Sports

Oahu is also home to the Honolulu Marathon each year. And across the water on the Big Island, endurance athletes compete in the World Ironman Triathalon Championship, pitting themselves against the grueling course amid the island’s natural splendor and beauty.

If you are planning your visit to Hawaii for any of these major sporting events, make sure to include time for a scuba diving Oahu lesson or diving adventure to complete your trip.
