Dive Boat Captains & Crew​

Hawaiian Diving Adventures employs safe, friendly, and fun dive professionals. We are specially trained to provide our guests with the ultimate scuba experience. All our boat captains are Coast Guard licensed and very experienced with taking scuba divers to the best dive sites around Oahu. Our divemasters and instructors are experts at finding and pointing out elusive octopuses, nudibranchs, frogfish, and other well-hidden marine life on the nearby coral reefs.

Bailey joins us from Mexico and the Caribbean.  She grew up professionally fighting pirates and sipping coconut-based drinks.  She’s also a Dive Instructor but would rather boss people around than getting into the water herself.

When he’s not leading fun divers around the Sea Tiger and other Oahu dive sites, he works as a school teacher and loves being a positive role model for kids. Blade enjoys underwater photography and is interested in the historical side of wreck diving.


Caleb dropped out of college after his third graduate degree. They simply wouldn’t let him become Dr. Nudibranch. Don’t ask him nudibranch questions unless you have a minimum of three hours to listen to him talk.

Susanna is a PADI and SSI dive instructor, and really enjoys taking underwater photos. She works most of the week as a project manager for Dell, enjoys travel, the finer things in life, and watching semi-pro hockey. Susanna is a US Navy and US Coast Guard veteran.


What can we say about Evan that hasn’t already been said? He’s been an international fashionista for the last 12 years and has been written up in magazines from Paris to Hong Kong. In an effort to escape his fame, he spends most of his time wearing a dive mask and teaching Basic Scuba Divers how to dive.  We are not even allowed publish a photo of his face.

Dax is a quirky old man that growls in joy whenever somebody pets him, especially on his head. He enjoys beach adventures and hiking, and isn’t bashful to hit you up to share any of your snacks!
