Our Most Exclusive Charter

This is our most advanced dive. On this charter we will travel across the Pailolo Channel which can be the windiest and roughest channel crossing in the Hawaiian Islands. Conditions on this dive are typically very rough with high winds and big swells. It is important that divers are physically fit enough to get on and off the boat in a full set of gear in rough water. 

This is a blue water drift dive. Portions of the dive will be near coral reef but the majority of the dive is spent in deep water looking for Pelagic species.  We do not feed or manipulate the sharks behavior in any way so it is not guaranteed you will see them. However, Hammerheads are not the only attraction on this dive. We sometimes see Galapagos Sharks, Grey Reef sharks, White Tip Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays and on the rare occasion Whale Sharks. Some of the most pristine Hawaiian coral reef can be seen here.  The schools of fish are so large it almost looks like the fish are raining down on you. 

It is important to have recent dive experience before going on any drift dive. On all of our drift dives we require a minimum of 25 logged dives and at least one completed dive within the last 6 months. Drift dives are off of a live boat meaning that the boat does not tie up to a mooring and will drive away after the entire group gets in the water. The boat will return to pick up the divers at the end of the dive. This means you do not have time to do a weight check at the start of your dive so you should already know how much weight you need before doing a drift dive. We also require that each diver carries their own Surface Marker Buoy (SMB). If you do not already own a SMB there will be some available for purchase at check in.
