Happy New Years from our Ohana to yours!

Posted: January 06, 2016

Well, we finished our first full year and I have to say that I think it was very successful based on all of the usual metrics. We’ve made a lot of new friends, the shop is looking better than it ever has, after a few personnel changes we now have a great team here in the store and on the boat. And, as an added bonus we were even profitable. We increased sales over 2014. Thank you to all of our customers who have supported us over the last year. 

At the beginning of the year we started providing hot towels to our customers after our dives and started serving fresh cut pineapple between dives. We also launched our new website and introduced an online booking system for our boat charters.  If you haven’t been on the boat with us in a long time I would like to invite you to try our boat charters. I think you will be very happy with the experience. 

Our manager, Shaun, taught two Zombie Apocalypse Diver courses and they were both tons of fun. We had two tent sales that were great successes. We also introduced our new Corsair T-shirt which has become very popular. 

Our TripAdvisor and Yelp ratings increased fro 3.5 to 4.5 this year and our Facebook likes increased from 1.1k to 3.5k.

This coming year we will continue to strive to make Aaron’s Dive Shop better. We do not have aspirations to become the biggest dive shop on Oahu, but we do want to be your favorite shop. Our goal in 2016 is to increase the number of charters over 2015. If you enjoyed diving with us in 2015 please let your friends know and we will do our best to show them that your recommendation is well founded. 

This year we will expand our store selection to include gear for our technical diving customers. We are now dealers for Shearwater, Hollis and Genesis DPVs. We will even be offering trimix and O2 later this year. We have also expanded our free diving and spearfishing gear selection. If you haven’t been in the store in a while, come on in and check it out. 

If you have any suggestions or comments for making Aaron’s a better shop, I would like to personally invite you to contact me. 

Aloha, 

Warren
