Hilo scuba diving at Sea Turtle Cove

Join us for a fun and memorable experience in Hilo on a one-tank shore dive along the island’s iconic east coast! Our Big Island scuba diving tour departs from the Hilo Ocean Adventures shop and cruises for a few miles along the beautiful coast to our amazing dive site.

Hilo is especially unique as the cool freshwater springs that enter the sea along our coast regulate ocean temperatures and prevent coral bleaching. Take advantage of this natural phenomenon as you dive among untouched reef walls and spectacular rock formations, and immerse yourself in East Hawaii’s thriving and diverse sea life.

You might see a wide variety of marine life like sea turtles, corals, tropical reef fish, eels, manta and eagle rays, and more, and your divemaster will point out these amazing creatures, ensuring that you have a memorable and exciting experience.

Feel free to leave your gear at home and dive with our top-of-the-line equipment such as 2018 Atomic Z3 regulators and Oceanic BCDs. Come explore the unseen side of Hawai‘i Island on a Hilo scuba diving tour.

Shore Dive at Turtle Cove

Hi, did a two-tank shore dive at Leleiwi Beach Park with Mark from the UK. Great experience as we saw a family of sea turtles: a very large female and the juveniles frolicking about. Mark was consummate professional - kind yet gave helpful advice when needed - but most of all, he was very patient as I’m new to scuba diving. The sea was a bit rough coming back in, with strong surges and currents, rocks to both sides, but Mark expertly guided us back to shore. We were exhausted but fulfilled. The second dive was more relaxing at Robertson’s up the road. Much easier entry/exit and shallow depths up to 10-15 feet. The shop is very clean and well-organised. They have an indoor pool to do open-water courses.
