Established in 1971 by founder Jack Aaron, Aaron’s Dive Shop has since grown into Oahu’s most respected dive facility and is recognized as the #1 Dive Operator and Dive Shop on the island. In the 80s and 90s, Jack worked for countless movies, TV series, and music videos both instructing stars and playing a huge behind the scene role. 

After 43 years, Jack was ready to retire and spend some quality time with his beautiful wife Sissy. On November 7, 2014, ownership of Aaron’s Dive Shop passed from the Founder, Jack Aaron to Warren Murray.   

Aaron’s Dive Shop’s excellent record of scuba diver safety and personal attention to client needs has been often featured by local and national magazines like Skin Diver, Sport Diver, Scuba Diver and many more. Aaron’s has also won more awards than can be counted from organizations like PADI, The US Commerce Association (USCA), Cousteau Organization, Honolulu Advertiser Choice Awards, TripAdvisor, Oceanic and many more.

At Aaron’s Dive Center, we treat all our clients with aloha – as valued customers and good friends. With scuba diving being one of the world’s fastest growing sports, it is our responsibility to introduce new participants to a world they previously could only imagine. We teach and demonstrate the skills necessary to keep scuba diving safe, while at the same time providing each client the ability to enjoy a lifetime of fun and excitement.

Our Dive Shop and Dive staff are knowledgeable in all things Snorkeling, Freediving, Spearfishing, Swimming, Recreational Scuba Diving, Technical Scuba Diving, and Professional Level Scuba Diving
