S.C.U.B.A. (SELF-CONTAINED UNDERWATER BREATHING APPARATUS)
With Diver Eddie
In 1943 two Frenchmen Émile Gagnan and Jacques-Yves Cousteau co-invented the open circuit demand S.C.U.B.A., opening the door for man’s exploration of the deep. Since then, millions of people have been able to explore the widely unknown depths of the ocean.
Hi. My name is Eddie and I’m a Master SCUBA Instructor. I spend a lot of time underwater, and for good reason: it’s amazing down there. If you’ve ever dove an area like Shark’s Cove on the island of O’ahu, you have probably seen us divers there with big smiles on our faces.
Places like Shark’s Cove are amazing for free diving – there is so much life and you never know when you will run into a manta ray or a monk seal. However, you’re limited by your lung’s capacity for air.
The beauty about SCUBA divers is that we can go deeper and longer. Divers can actually hang out with that curious monk seal, or swim through a lava tube that would otherwise be inaccessible.
I’d like to invite you to travel with me to see the ocean through my eyes as I explore the depths here on O’ahu. And who knows, maybe one day I’ll see you down there. Check back periodically to see my latest posts, or get on our mailing list to receive posts directly to your email.
“The best way to observe a fish is to become a fish.”

6/9/17 I enjoyed this one!
6/9/17 I have been diving with Eddie at Sharks cove with my son, he was our guide. As an ex-commercial hardhat diver, I can truly say Eddie is a true professional but at the same time never loses sight of enjoying the dive. I look forward to my return trip next month to dive with him again. Would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a top notch dive guide / instructor. Aloha and mahalo Eddie!
