Want to see The Sharks of Hawaii? There are about 40 species of sharks in our surrounding waters, ranging in size from 8 inches to over 50 feet in length! Though we may not be able to show you a spine pygmy shark (They live below 6,500 feet!), we can guide you to locations frequented by some of the other species of sharks that are endemic to Hawaii.



The most common type of shark is the White tip Reef Shark that inhabits our shore lines and shallow reefs. Other frequently seen non aggressive sharks are the Black tip and Sandbar sharks. The lucky diver might have an encounter with the giant Whale Shark.

The aggressive species are the Scalloped Hammerhead, Gray Reef, Galapagos, and the infamous Tiger Sharks.

A diver propulsion vehicle (DPV, also known as an underwater propulsion vehicle or underwater scooter) is an item of diving equipment used by scuba and rebreather divers to increase range underwater. Range is restricted by the amount of breathing gas that can be carried, the rate at which that breathing gas is consumed under exertion, and the time limits imposed by the dive tables to avoid decompression sickness. DPV's can have military application; an example is the Diver Propulsion Device (DPD) from STIDD Systems in the US.[1]

A DPV usually consists of a battery-powered electric motor, which drives a propeller. The design must ensure that: the propeller is caged so that it cannot harm the diver, diving equipment or marine life; the vehicle cannot be accidentally started or run away from the diver; and it remains neutrally buoyant under all conditions.

DPVs are useful for long journeys at constant depth where navigation is easy. Typical uses include cave diving and technical diving where the vehicles help move bulky equipment and make better use of the limited underwater time imposed by the decompression requirements of deep diving.

For many recreational divers DPVs are not useful. Buoyancy control is vital for diver safety: The DPV has the potential to make buoyancy control difficult and cause barotrauma if the diver ascends or descends under power. Visibility of less than 5 meters makes navigating a DPV difficult. Also, many forms of smaller marine life are very well camouflaged or hide well and are only seen by divers who move very slowly and are very vigilant. With our scooters they are 3 lbs negative and we stop and explore the marine life around the area.
