Philosophy

Regardless of economic trends, the scuba industry has continued to expand on a global scale. This has created a large demand for professionally trained instructors and technicians to fill roles in all areas of the industry, and qualified individuals are in high demand in many regions. Dive Oahu’s GoPro Professional Development programs prepare you for a career in the diving industry.

Dive Oahu is a premier PADI Five Star CDC offering a full range of PADI scuba diving instruction, PADI Professional training, and comprehensive PADI Continuing Education programs to ensure divers at all levels have the opportunity to advance their skills and knowledge. Dive Oahu fully supports Project Aware and encourages aquatic environmental responsibility in the local community and region.

Our staff focuses on training safety. We follow the PADI Quality Management Process and are proud of our excellent safety record.

While training with us, you will be challenged, but at the same time have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. We maintain low instructor to student ratios and make learning fun. At Dive Oahu, Inc. we are not only active instructors but we dive what we teach and are very active divers.
