Staff has lots of experience and so friendly. We had a blast. It wasn't the best day for diving but we still got to visit two memorable places and had a great time. Boat size is smaller so we had a small group, which makes for a better experience. Linda was so enthusiastic and obviously loves her job! I would... More

Dove with this group for two days during 10th anniv trip last week based on the Kauai Revealed guide book. Was scheduled to go on the Ni'ihau dive adventure on day 2, but the trip got scrubbed due to rough seas and then my wife had to bail on the replacement dives b/c of sinus trouble after our first day...

Dive Master Wayne and Captain Earl were great. My wife was unsure of her diving skills after 20 years or so since our last dive and only a pool refresher prior to coming to Kauai. DM Wayne guided her (and me) through every step and got her confident enough at Hale O Honu (Home of the Turtles) to do a... More

This was my fourth dive trip with these guys, spanning 8 years from the first. They're my go-to dive operator on Kauai and are always professional, thorough, informative and entertaining.

Had a really nice dive with just one other diver and my dive master. I was amazed with the type of sea life in Hawaii, but the volume was a little disappointing (I'm used to the FL Keys where fish are everywhere on the reefs). Our second dive at the 'Home of the Turtles' was absolutely worth the entire dive!... More

My wife and I got certified through Bubbles Below during our vacation in Kauai. Prior to signing up, I looked online at multiple scuba companies. Bubbles Below's prices were most reasonable and they are a family-owned/-run business. Most importantly, all 4 dives for the scuba open water certification was boat dives, instead of shore dives (which you'll find many do... More

Only a 15 minute drive from Poipu to the Port Allen harbor/dive shop.
