The Koloa Landing Shore Adventure Includes: introduction and two shore dives with all gear, private instruction, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages.
What to Bring
Please bring beach attire and a towel, remember to wear sunscreen, bring a hat and/or sunglasses!
Prior to your arrival we will need you to register with PADI for your Discover Scuba Dive. You will complete a medical release and short course taking about an hour of your time learning the basics for a fun and safe adventure. Once the instructor has verified these things are done – it’s gear and go under time!!!! PADI DSD Course
Upon arrival at Koloa Landing, you attend a small interactive talk, then do some shore and shallow water work to get you comfortable diving! You do this all in half a day with one of our PADI instructors, who ensures your comfort and pace.
Once you pass the minimal requirements, we can take you on two-tank local dives during your remaining time on the island with your instructor as a non certified “Scuba Diver”. Once underwater, it’s time for a marine scuba tour! You dive with the turtles, swim in schools of fish, check out eels, and more. The boat dives typically have better visibility, more marine life, and lots more live coral.
Maximum depth during your dives is 40 feet.
All discover scuba lessons have a private instructor with a maximum of two to four divers depending on the age of our students. Large groups we can bring in more instructors to accommodate.
- No one under the age of 7 for private charters only on the boats. Call for questions about young children.
