SCUBA DIVING NORTH SHORE

BOOK YOUR DIVE NOW

THE NORTH SHORE OF OAHU IS TRULY A DIVERS PARADISE.

During the winter months, the North Shore of Oahu is the Mecca of surfing in the world, as huge waves surge through the Pacific Ocean and break high on the reef. In the summertime, however, these waters become a beautiful diving paradise, especially within the Pupukea Marine Sanctuary. Being a protected area, there are rules to dive here: no fishing, no boating, no taking. The rock formations are incredibly unique,consisting of massive concentration of underwater caves, caverns, walls, overhangs, and lava tubes.
