Dive Oahu

Dive Oahu is a full-service dive shop and training facility owned and operated by Brian Benton since its inception in 1991. Benton is a veteran with over 30 years diving experience. He started diving in Okinawa, Japan when he was stationed there as a young Marine and he hasn’t stopped since.  Benton is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and holds a 100-Ton Masters Captain’s License.

Dive Oahu is a PADI FIVE Star Career Development Center (CDC) which means that they uphold the highest standards of excellence in scuba training from beginners to instructors and beyond. Dive Oahu has friendly staff and instructors who understand AMA’s educational philosophy and are here to help you succeed. Their philosophy is focused on safety with low instructor to student ratios that foster learning at the highest level. Dive Oahu’s philosophy is also conservation centric. They are committed educating future generations of divers with a well-rounded knowledge of the ocean and our responsibility to protect it. 

Dive Oahu is headquartered at their Kakaako location at 609 Keawe Street, Honolulu, HI. Classroom and pool work is located at the Kapolei Aquatic Center at 300 Franklin Ave, Kapolei, HI. Call Dive Oahu at 808-922-3483 for more information on courses and everything diving.
