We dove with Anna from Surf and Sea on a two-tank boat dive. She was nice, and the crew made it easy. The turtles were a delight. Jeff the dive coordinator called a few days before to talk about conditions and schedules and experience levels. I got confirmation emails, and communication is important to me. We later saw their shop on North Shore (we met at the boat for the dives) and they have a lot of gear for all the water recreation. Solid outfit, no complaints.

From the very beginning everyone that I spoke to was super friendly and helpful. We had a large group some snorkelers, some certified divers and some not, we all wanted to be together & they made it happen! From arrival at the shop the day of our dive, to the road trip to Honolulu, to the dive & everything after everyone was amazing! I definitely recommend Surf N Sea to everyone! Your experience with them will be nothing but perfect (even shopping throughout their store is super fun)! Mahalo :)

I had an AMAZING time surfing with Karen! She is so rad and helped me catch a bunch of waves! She is so knowledgeable and patient with us learning. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better time or instructor. Also Charlie is super rad as well. She does the scuba diving and is a hoot.

I did six dives with Surf N Sea's dive master Charlie in late February, 2018: four to complete my PADI open water certification, and two (including a wreck dive) for fun.

Because of the large swells on the north shore, we had to dive out of Honolulu. The drive from Haleiwa was about an hour, which was a good chance to ask questions and learn more about what we were going to see. It turns out Charlie is also an environmental scientist who speaks five languages -- she knows her stuff!

On the dives we saw a vast array of marine life including turtles, reef sharks, eels, octopuses and dozens of different species of fish. Charlie pointed out features I would have missed, such as conches and leaf fish.

I had a great experience during the three days I dove with Charlie. If I ever make it back to Oahu, I would definitely book with Surf N Sea again. Would love to g
