My wife and I are headed to Oahu for 4-5 days. I was thinking that I would save some money and do a couple shore dives.

So I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on shore diving spots on Oahu and gear rental recommends?

I am PADI Rescue Diver certified and my wife is Open Water Certified.

Thanks in the advance!

is a good source of information. You might also try calling dive shops when you're there.

I've routinely done two places:

Shark's Cove - North shore location; easy access; not diveable during winter months because surf can be very high; caves and swim throughs; little coral

Hanauma Bay - this is a great snorkeling location; people do scuba here, but access requires a long trek (or shuttle ride) down to the beach; tends to get extremely crowded - park closes many days in late morning when it fills up; overall, I've seen more varieties of fish and marine life here than anywhere else I've been; it's an ancient volcanic crater open on one end to the sea, so it's well protected.

Three tables (left, right, straight out) and Sharks Cove (same thing), right next to each other. Can't go wrong. Makaha beach (follow the trench), Electric left right for sea life etc.
