Hawaii Shipwrecks Diving in Honolulu

South East Oahu

East and South East facing shores are very good diving and most experts who scuba dive in Hawaii would agree this is the drift dive point of Oahu. With China Walls and the Corsair airplane wreck your Hawaiian scuba adventure will be complete. Monk seals are very common around the China Walls, the popular Oahu dive site and scuba divers sometimes actually get to mingle with these cool mammals. Spitting caves in that same area is also a frequented spot by monk seals and many. By far, these Oahu diving locations are the most requested dive locations.

South Oahu

South facing shores of Oahu are very good contrary to what you may think. Just outside of big, dirty Honolulu city the shipwreck scuba diving and wreck dives are unreal. With the yo-257 and the Sea Tiger wreck just minutes away from Kewalo Boat Basin harbor this seems to be a favorite part of Oahu for scuba divers. Swells are generally small throughout the year allowing pretty much 365 days of superb scuba diving. PADI dive certifications are primarily conducted in this area due to the location being so close to Waikiki. Kewalo Boat Basin is roughly 8 minutes to the west of Waikiki. Not bad huh ? So doing the shipwreck and OR the Sea Tiger would definitely make your Hawaiian vacation complete...WAIT. Not true. There is more !

North Shore Oahu- ***SEASONAL DIVING***

The North Shore of Oahu is the most sought after location in terms of beauty and the quintessential true "Hawaii" feel. About 40 minutes to the north of Honolulu City this Haleiwa laid back town called Haleiwa is the surfing capital of the world. Outside of the scuba diving world most people do not think of Haleiwa for scuba diving. The North Shore has some of the best diving on the island. Both boat dives and money saving beach dives are what makes the North Shore so appealing. One catch, winter times are strictly off limits for scuba divers wanting to do beach diving due to the swells which makes Haleiwa so famous for. Oahu Diving does dive in this area on limited occasions. Please feel free to call us for details.

Hawaii Scuba Diving Locations

Oahu dive locations are endless. Getting to the right diving spot requires a dive boat. Beach dives although plentiful do take a lot more work and effort and in the end the reward is far below that what you could have seen diving from a boat.

Oahu south shore dives are hands down some of the better dives you will find on Oahu. Most people think areas such as Honolulu and Waikiki may ruin coastal diving locations in Oahu. Frankly speaking south shore of Oahu with wreck dives such as the yo-257 or the Sea Tiger, then around Diamondhead, The Corsair and the Barges are some of the most requested dives.
