SCUBA CHARTER OPTIONS:

Aaron’s runs CERTIFIED SCUBA DIVING charters daily ON OAHU, HAWAII!

ALL boat charters are ‘two tank’, AKA two different dive sites. 

On ALL charters, you will be personally escorted on your dive by a divemaster or instructor. 

Safety is our top priority.

WRECK DIVING

ABOUT:

Start your day off right! This is the boat that Oahu certified divers are trying to get on! Our daily early morning boat charter is a more advanced trip for certified divers only. 

We leave early, at 7:00AM, to ensure the best conditions possible. The dive sites include a deep site, about 80′-120′ depending on the dive sites, followed by a shallower reef dive, about 30′-50′.  Typically, the deep site is a wreck but if conditions are good a sea cave or sea wall are options. Another dive option is drift diving. 

This charter is more suited to divers who have their Advanced Open Water certification or recent experience with deep dives over 100′. 

Dive sites are vary depending on conditions, as well as divers abilities. Because of that reason, we cannot guarantee dive sites. 

Check the live calendar above for AM Two Tank Boat Charter (Deep/Shallow) availability. 

SCHEDULE:

Meet at the boat at 6:45AM.

See below for boat location.

PREREQUESITES:

MUST be at least 15 years old to participate in any dive 60′ or deeper.

Divers MUST be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another agency) OR be a certified PADI Deep Diver (or equivalent from another agency) OR have previous deep diving experience to participate in any ‘deep’ dives.

REEF DIVING

ABOUT:

ALL divers welcome! This boat charter is perfect for students, beginners (Discover Scuba Divers) or certified divers. These 10:30AM & 1:30PM charters go to two shallow reef sites between 30′- 40′. 

Everyone is welcome on this charter – divers of all levels! We take first time divers (aka Discover Suba Divers), certified divers (of all levels) and students and split up into the groups based on experience. We recommend this charter for families or couples who have experienced divers AND inexperienced/no-experience so everyone can be on the same boat together.

Check the live calendar above for PM Two tank Boat Charter (Shallow/Shallow) & Late PM Two Tank Boat Charter (Shallow/Shallow) availability.

NIGHT DIVING

ABOUT:

Night dives are for certified divers only. We usually offer a night dive EVERY Saturday night or upon request. Check for availability. 

The dive sites typically include two shallow reef sites between 30′-50′. Divers will experience a reef during dusk as it is transitioning – diurnal critters go to rest and nocturnal species come out to play. During your surface interval, watch the sunset over Diamond Head. Jump back in for an entirely new diving experience! Be sure to take your time swimming along the reef and look in the nooks & crannies of the coral! 

Check the live calendar above for Night Dive availability. 

SCHEDULE:

Meet at the boat at 4:45PM.

See below for boat location.

PREREQUESITES:

PADI Open Water Certification (or other agency equivalent)

SPECIAL CHARTER BOATS

ABOUT:

Oahu has amazing wrecks & reefs to explore all around the island. To give our divers the BEST that Oahu has to offer, we regularly schedule special charter boats to dive sites outside of Maunalua Bay. These boats typically leave out of Kewalo Basin Harbor and can have boat trip times as much as an hour. 

Because they are typically wreck sites or deep reefs these charters are usually for certified divers only. 

Check the live calendar above for Charter Boat availability. 

SCHEDULE:

Meet time varies. Be at the boat at least 15 minutes prior to departure time.

See below for boat location.

PREREQUESITES:

MUST be able to swim. 

MUST be at least 10 years old. 

When applicable:

  • MUST be at least 15 years old to participate in any dive 60′ or deeper.
  • MUST be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent from another agency) OR be a certified PADI Deep Diver (or equivalent from another agency) OR have previous deep diving experience to participate in any ‘deep’ dives (>60′).

WHY AARONS?

AARON’S IS THE OLDEST DIVE SHOP IN HAWAII. SINCE 1971, OUR REPUTATION SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
