The ocean is big, cold, full of nooks and crannies hiding lots of teeth — mouths full of teeth. Or so it may seem. We are the only dive training center in Hilo that keeps dive training as low-stress as possible. Our indoor, heated pool keeps us safe and warm.
Whether exploring or just having fun, scooters are the biggest bang around. You can dive longer, cover more ground, and stay safe from currents with a scooter.
Only an authorized service center can perform warranty repairs on your Life-Support equipment. We are an authorized dealer and repair center for more brands than any other in Hilo. Cressi, AquiLung, Mares, Dacor, Hollis, & Oceanic. Don't go to an untrained technician. Come to the pros.
