2 Boat Dive $110
There are a lot of places to boat dive on the island of Oahu.


The South side
On the South side of the island is one of the best shipwreck dives around. It is called The Caroline Shipwreck (YO257 Shipwreck).This is a 165ft. navy yard oiler.The ship was sunk by the Atlantis Submarine company over 12 Years ago as an artificial reef.The back bottom of the ship sits in about 130ft.depth.The front bottom of the ship is in about 90 ft.Since the ship was sunk a long time ago, The marine life there is incredible. There are literally hundreds of different types of marine life here. The ship can also be penetrated. There are large cuts in the ship, so you could swim through it with ease. The dive plan is usually set for 17minutes at 100ft.This is a must do dive. The boats usually leave from Honolulu Harbor. It is about a 20 minute boat ride to this point. There is another shipwreck dive that is also on the south side. This wreck is called The Sea Tiger Shipwreck. This wreck is right outside of Honolulu Harbor. It is about a 5 minute boat ride. This wreck is deeper than the Caroline, so your bottom time is short. This dive plan is for 13 minutes at 110ft.Since this wreck is fairly new; there is not as much marine life as the Caroline. This is still a good wreck dive.
There are also several reef dives on the south side. The first is called Turtle Canyons. This dive site is offshore of Waikiki. There are a lot of sea turtles here. The reefs look like canyons. That's why they call this place Turtle canyons. Here you can also see lots of different types of reef fishes. The dive plan is usually set for 45 minutes at 40ft depth. This is a nice relaxing dive. Next reef dive site is called Kewalo Pipe. This site is offshore from Honolulu Harbor. This dive you can see many different types of marine life. Some of this marine life is very rare, like the famous but hardly seen Dragon Eel, or the Hawaiian flame Angel. Reef sharks have also been spotted here. The dive plan here is for 50ft. for 40 minutes. This is an interesting dive to do. These are the best dives on the south side.

The West side
The west side has lots of different boat dive sites. I'll go over my two favorite spots. The first site is a shipwreck dive called The Mahi Shipwreck. The boats depart from the Waianae Boat Harbor. It is about a 45 minute drive from the Waikiki hotels. The Mahi is about a 10 minute boat ride from the Waianae Harbor. This is the oldest shipwreck on the island. The Mahi is a navy minesweeper and it was sunk intentionally as an artificial reef. It is about a 185ft long vessel. The Mahi has lots of large fishes, such as the big Ulua (Amberjacks) and also groups of Eagle Rays hover right over the wreck. There's also allot of reef fishes that live in the wreck. This is a perfect shipwreck dive if you on the Westside. The next dive site is called Makaha Caverns. It is the most beautiful reef dive on the Westside. The site looks like a valley underwater. There are also little caverns situated here and there, some of which is large enough to go inside. This is a really beautiful reef. You'll see a lot of rare fishes and sea turtles. This is a paradise for tropical fish collectors. The dive ranges from 10ft to about a 40ft. depth. The dive plan is for 45 minutes at a maximum depth of 40ft.
