Aaron’s Dive Shop dives predominantly in Maunalua Bay out of Hawaii Kai. This bay and the area surrounding it boasts a variety of different diving opportunities! From WWII wrecks, to reefs, caves and craters – no day is the same!
Sea life encountered varies as dramatically as the sites. The beauty of the ocean is no dive site is the same two days in a row. Local creatures you could encounter in the bay include everything from green sea turtles to Hawaiian monk seals (endangered) to whale sharks, humpback whales, white tip reef sharks, humuhumunukunukuapua’a (Hawaiian state fish), puffer fish, moray eels and SO much more!
Aaron’s CANNOT guarantee any dive sites due to the nature of the ocean.
With weather & conditions changing quickly, we will do our best to get you the best, safest dive possible!
One of Oahu’s only natural wrecks, the Corsair (a 33’ long, 41’ wingspan WWII airplane) had an emergency water landing in April 1945 due to engine failure.
This wreck is often referred to as the ‘Upside-down LCU’ because it was purposely sunk as an artificial reef in the upside-down position, creating an interesting and unique Oahu diving experience.
This 100ft artificial reef wreck has multiple entry points for wreck penetration and exploration. It also boasts a lot of big sea life sightings.
This wreck is splayed open to display the inner-workings of the now retired barge without penetrating the wreck. You are very likely to run into a turtle or a more elusive sand-bar shark.
This reef site is a 20ft ledge running in either direction from the mooring line. With the ledge boasting crevasses and ocean floor expanding in every direction, the possibilities for marine sightings of all kinds are high.
Known for it’s turtles, turtles and more turtles. This reef site is an active turtle cleaning station and is typically full of turtle sightings between Buddha statues.
This site varies dramatically from dense coral coverage to spotted coral outcroppings. The dense coral makes this a great night dive.
This site is great for spying your smaller marine life within cracks and crevices. Also a good spot for octopus.
