Aloha ... and Welcome to the Best Diving in Kauai !!!

People often will ask me, "What is it like to scuba dive Kauai?"
I tell them that it feels strange the first time. The mask. The awkward gear, a bit heavy. You ease into the water and your face slips below the surface. Inhale; the air comes with a reassuring hiss, and for the first time, you breathe underwater. In moments, you forget the mask. The equipment transforms to light and agile, and you're free like you've never experienced before. With that first underwater breath, the door opens to a different world. Not a world apart, but different nonetheless.
I tell them to "Go through that door. Once you try Kauai scuba diving, your life will never be the same." No one but you can say what calls you to scuba diving. If you seek adventure, you'll find plenty, whether it's in a sunken ship as you uncover its secrets, in a far corner of the the world amid other peoples and cultures, or in your backyard - closer than you imagined possible.
If you love nature, you've come to the right place. No other environment approaches the abundance, diversity and vibrance of a pristine coral reef. You can see more different species in ten minutes there than in ten hours in the most unspoiled wildernesses above water. But with time, you'll discover that even unlikely places that seem empty and sterile to the inexperienced eye - like a lake or flooded quarry - teem with intriguing organisms - a reminder that nature's imagination exceeds ours.
Kauai scuba diving. If discovery drives you, Welcome to inner space. It's somewhat cliche, yet true, that we know the surface of the moon better than we know the bottoms of the oceans. Even at the most popular dive sites, you'll see things most people never see and go where most people ever go. Even with hundreds of dives under you belt, visiting a new dive site thrills you with discovery, and visiting a familiar one is a bit like coming home.
And scuba diving, especially Kauai scuba diving, means rising to new challenges. It's one of the rare activities that delivers adrenaline and intensity, or serenity and peace. You can take on challenges requiring training, planning and focus: searching for and recovering lost objects, descending to 100 feet (if your diving level permits) or exploring your favorite dive site after sunset. Or you can drift along in some of the worlds most tranquil and beautiful settings, with your biggest immediate worry whether you want to stop and photograph that star fish or not. Either way, diving grows with you - there's always somewhere new to explore, something new to see, some new way to enjoy the experiences. No other endeavor so easily matches exactly what you're up for, right now, tomorrow, and ten years from now. You cannot outgrow it.
You've probably seen photos, television and films about Kauai scuba diving, but until you do it yourself, you can't really understand what it's like. Nothing on earth matches the sensations you experience - the thrill of breathing underwater, the freedom of "weightlessness", and unique sights and sounds.
"Akamai" is a Hawaiian expression that means "sharp ..."
"Akamai" is a Hawaiian expression that means "having your act together ..."
"Akamai" is a Hawaiian expression that means "thinking ahead ..."
"Akamai" is a Hawaiian expression that means "knowing what you are doing".
Here at Akamai Divers, we like to think that we are "akamai" about those things that are of interest to YOU ... our guests, our friends, our o'hana !!!
For example, here's what some of our Divers have said about their Kauai Scuba Diving experiences with us:
I just wanted to thank you for making my first scuba dive Kauai experience so wonderful. My experience with you taking the discover scuba dives has made me want to get my PADI certification, I will hopefully be able to do it within the next year. It was really awesome to meet you, and I hope one day I get to return to Kauai and dive with you again. Thanks so much!!!
This email is long overdue, but better late then never. We went scuba diving on Kauai with Steve the last week of August of 2005, and due to Steve's knowledge of the area, its indigenous creatures and his great patience, our experience was bar-none the most enjoyable diving experience we have had.
My wife and I haven't been diving for several years, so we chose to utilize Steve's "Rusty Diver" option for our trip, and we were glad we did.
Steve is a very patient and knowledgeable Instructor, and the format of the experience from a shore orientation of the equipment, to the area and wildlife orientation worked quite well. Steve explained the nature of the animals in the area and what the best methods were for viewing and experiencing them in the habitat.
As we dove, we encountered other divers moving through an area at record speeds, and they missed several interesting and unusual sites as they sped through that we did not due to Steve's method. We had an experience with a turtle that we will always refer to, and we wish we had a camera for it.
I guess I was swimming along with this turtle who was in my blind spot just behind and to my right for a minute or so, and it wasn't until Steve and my wife signaled to me that he was there that I saw him. He was very close and based on Steve's advise earlier, we allowed the turtle to settle into a spot where we were able to experience his majesty. Thank you Steve for such a great experience.
We will be in contact when we are able to return to do more Kauai scuba diving!

Back in Iowa now and I just wanted to follow up with you on how much fun I had going on my first scuba dive Kauai with you. I always wanted to try it but never had the opportunity. The dive I went on with you was definitely worth the wait. There were other groups going out the same time we were and I could tell you were much more thorough in explaining all the equipment and safety procedures. Your presentation about the history of the bay and explaining all the types of fish we would see made the course complete.
Going the extra mile by having a class with just me and not a large group was fantastic and made the dive more pleasurable knowing I was getting a more detailed personalized dive. Your enthusiasm for the sport is great and made the dive more exciting. I could tell you loved diving and introducing new divers to the sport - even after all the dives you have done. Watching the other instructors in the different diving operations, they acted like the dives were just a job and did not enjoy working with new divers.
Just wanted to say thanks and I will never forget the humu, butterflies, trumpets, eels, shrimp, cleaners, goats, urchins and lions we saw that day. I recommended you to all the people I work with in Kauai. I hope I can get back someday and do more Kauai diving all over again.

Jan and I truly enjoyed diving with you at Koloa Landing on Tuesday, August 9. We had a great time on our dive on Kauai. Our dives with you were at the top of our list of the things we really enjoyed. Jan and I are experienced divers having been diving since the early '80s all over the Caribbean, Mexico, the Bahamas and numerous fresh water locations too cold to remember.
We found your set up, equipment, intro and execution to be first rate and right up there with some of the big name operations such as Peter Hughes Dive Bonaire and Neal Watson's Underwater Adventures.
We were especially entertained by your description of the dive sight, the fish and other critters we might see and what to look for. You didn't bore us, and covered the safety aspects very well without talking down to us. I don't see how anybody would not enjoy your thorough and lively intro. Our nearly 2 hours of bottom time were fun, relaxing and exciting.
You did your job as dive guide with professionalism, humor and an overall friendly and welcoming attitude. I've been an instructor for over 20 years (I'm not active anymore) and have seen it all from really great to the unbelievably bad.
You rank right up there with the best I've ever dived with. Thanks again for an extremely fun morning of Kauai scuba diving.
Jan and Michael
Roger and I returned to New Mexico reluctantly after 10 days of scuba diving in Kauai a most memorable, beautiful experience for a couple who have been married for less than 2 years. In reflection, our time spent with you was absolutely the best! I dive occasionally in the Bahamas, but Rogers certification was pretty dated with his last diving over 30 years ago. With your Rusty Diver session, you were able to overcome his uncertainty within just a few hours, and get us into diving in a safe and beautiful location at Whalers Cove.
Your attention and watchfulness to our lack of diving experience gave both of us peace of mind in entering the water, and as confidence grew, your knowledge of the dive site reopened the wonders of diving and exploring living creatures in the sea. Roger was so excited after diving with you the ONLY reason we didnt dive again before we left was because there just wasnt enough time!
I can now look forward to many more diving experiences with my new diving buddy, and we will definitely being Kauai diving and working with you again soon! Thanks so very much!
Deborah and Roger
PS: We left your cards with Suite Paradise and clearly told them that you are the guy to dive kauai with, even for us scairdy cats!!
I just wanted to take this moment to thank you for your excellent training. I did two boat dives and one night dive after I was certified. All three went very well although the night dive was very intimidating in the first 10 minutes. Once I calmed down, it was great. I wish I could have dived with you some more but the schedules just did not work out. I hope my brother John gave you a small token of my appreciation. Looking forward to diving with you again next time I am in Kauai!
I just to drop you a note and tell how much fun I had reef and shore diving with you. You need to send me some cards. I'm going to hand them out to all the dive shops out here and all my dive friends. I'm already booking my Kauai scuba diving vacation for next year. This time I'm going to try to stay for 2 weeks. I will be contacting you to set up dives once I have all my dates.
Just wanted you to know what a great time we had. Of the 100+ Instructors and Dive Masters we have ever went diving with you were the most interested in showing us a good time & one of the few we will never forget. Good Luck .
PS. If you need us as a reference, no problem.
Things have been crazy here in NY but I have been wanting to say thanks for showing us around Kauai diving. We really had a great time and you did a really nice job. The Koloa Landing dives were really pretty and very relaxing. The fish nests we saw were so cool and the male fish guarding the nest was a lot of fun and very interesting to watch. Just wanted to say thanks and we will highly recommend you to any of our diving friends.
PS. Take good care of your daughter-shes a great kid! Oh yeah ... snow here yesterday.
My name is Steve and I would love to be your "Akamai" Instructor and Kauai Scuba Dive Buddy while you are here on Kauai !!!
