What better place to learn how to scuba than Hawaii? With our expert dive masters and access to the only heated indoor diving pool in Hilo, you'll master the skill of diving in no time at all.

Your lesson begins in the classroom where your dive master will introduce you to all the gear and information needed for diving. The pool is about 5 feet deep, the perfect depth to practice your Discover Scuba Diving skills while still feeling comfortable and safe. Swim around the pool until you're ready for your first ocean dive.

After getting acquainted with your friendly dive master and becoming familiar with your diving equipment, your instructor will take you to the ideal dive site for beginners.

Hawaii's underwater terrain is very diverse and its unique collection of sea life is not hard to find. With the help of your dive master, you're likely to spot thriving coral, colorful fish and Hawaii's famous giant sea turtles.
