Hilo Ocean Adventures - Introductory Boat Scuba Dive - 2 Tank

This tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Big Island scuba diving page for other open scuba diving tours on the Big Island of Hawaii.

This is the perfect tour for non-certified divers. Your tour includes a 45 minute safety briefing, where you will learn underwater breathing techniques and gain insight on how your equipment works from an expert SCUBA instructor. You'll also enjoy a light snack and fruit juice. You'll follow up your safety briefing with another 45-minute learning session, where you'll hop in an indoor heated pool and learn underwater breathing techniques. Get to know how your SCUBA diving gear works before departing from the downtown Hilo location of Wailoa Boat Harbor to explore two different dive sites.

At the first dive site, you may come across dolphin pods and view the majestic underwater structures of the ancient volcanic caldera, including caves, single lava arches and a sand bottom 60 feet below.

Then visit the second dive spot to experience Hilo Bay's abundant aquatic life, including sleeping cave sharks, angelfish, tangs and the Hawaiian green sea turtle, which you'll find the most in Hilo, more than any other location in Hawaii. Watch tangs clean the sea turtles' shells at the turtle cleaning station before heading back to your port destination.

  • Instructional material, all gear and dive instructor
  • 45 minute classroom instruction, 45 minute pool instruction, and  2 ocean dives for an approximate total of 6 hours
