Hawaii is well-known for its beautiful and warm waters, and most visitors will want to do something in the water. A very fun thing to do in Hawaii is scuba diving. Scuba diving allows visitors to enjoy the wonderful reefs and sea-life that surround the islands, and it the act of scuba diving feels very adventurous. When going scuba diving, there are a number of different kinds of diving that one can engage in. This includes reef diving, Oahu diving, and guided scuba tours.
The first kind of scuba diving in Hawaii is reef diving. This kind of diving allows for you to see the beautiful reefs that can be found just below the waters. This kind of diving allows you to travel right above the reefs, which means that you can see the animals that live in the reefs up close. This kind of diving is the kind that people with basic instruction can do. This is because it does not require the diver to go deep, deal with strong currents, and they are close to land. It is possible to simply rent equipment, and then go out to the reefs from the beach. There are diving tours that are able to offer instruction and equipment, and can show you the best reefs to dive around. This is a very good option for people who have never dived before, and allows for them to go diving if they do not have a diving certificate.
The second kind of scuba diving in Hawaii is open water diving. This kind of diving allows for divers to explore the open water off of the islands. This kind of diving allows for them to see much bigger fish, dive deep, and allows for them to have much more space to swim. This kind of diving is a great way to enjoy free swimming. Open-water diving is slightly more difficult than reef diving, and will require the diver to get a certificate before they go out. However, most scuba tour companies are able to help visitors get this certificate. Open-water diving is a great way for people to see such things as sharks. This kind of diving will require more equipment and a boat, and so it is best to make arrangement to go out beforehand.
Finally, visitors should look into going on a guided scuba tour while in Hawaii. These tours allow for a person to dive as a group with a professional. This makes scuba diving more social. The guide is able to show the divers interesting features, areas that they would not notice, and lets them see wildlife that they would not normally see. It also allows for people with a lower level of scuba certification to go on a more advanced dive.
