Wreck Diving Oahu, HI
Dive Oahu wrecks with us and have the adventure of a lifetime! Most people think of Oahu dive sites in terms of our unique marine life, but Oahu is also home to great wreck diving. From the Sea Tiger to the Mahi, say aloha to history underwater and see first hand the unique environment created by artificial reefs. Whether you’re a recreational or technical diver, there are countless wrecks and reefs for you to explore and experience.
Portals to the Past
Wrecks are portals to the past and offer a unique window to a different kind of underwater world. While some ships like the Sea Tiger were purposely sunk in an effort to create man-made reefs, planes like the Corsair were casualties of World War II. Wrecks, particularly older ones, teem with diverse marine life and are breathtaking dive sites. Endangered Hawaiian sea turtles (honu), spotted eagle rays, white and black tip Reef Sharks, and a vast assortment of unique tropical fish and eels make wreck diving in Oahu the talk of divers worldwide.
