Happy clientsabout us

I recently spent a week with Ocean Legends Dive Center in Honolulu. It was a fantastic experience! Whether you are looking to earn your first scuba diving certification or are a seasoned veteran they cater to all diving needs. They also offer rebreather training on a number of different units. I have had the opportunity to visit quite a few dive operations in a number of different countries and Ocean legends is one of the best I have ever dealt with. Owner Darren Fox and his team offer top notch customer service, training and a wide variety of exciting dive charters. For any divers who are visiting Honolulu I would strongly recommend Ocean Legends as the place to go.

I took my ‘Padi Open Water Scuba Diving’-Certification with Ocean Legends and can completely recommend them to anybody who wants to learn Scuba Diving! Mike Matzinger was an awesome teacher and Bobby Ortiz an awesome divemaster who made me always feel safe in the water. The teacher went through the whole material we needed for safe diving, so that it didn’t feel like studying at all :). Ocean Legends made me the best price I could find in Honolulu/Waikiki-Area, and also gave me a fair price for a package for my own gear (incl. diving-mask, snorkeland fins!). I think it’s really nice to have your own diving gear from the beginning, which I can recommend!


I just had to send a note to say a special thanks to Liz my diving professional last Friday. She was super patient and encouraging the entire time. And although myself and my companion were terrified at first she made the process seem like a breeze. LIZ WAS AWESOME!
