  • Hilo Ocean Adventures Seeks NAUI Instructors

    Updated August 24, 2018

    Hilo Ocean Adventures, LLC is looking for a lead NAUI instructor at the only dive shop in Hilo, Hawai'i ("Big Island"), offering boat dives and whale watches. Because most dive sites in this area are undiscovered, this is a great chance to become a part of an exploration initiative to create exciting opportunities in the aloha-spirited community! Interested active-status NAUI instructors can send resumes and questions to mark@hilooceanadventures.com.

    About us: We are a family owned dive operation on the Bayfront of Hilo, the eastern side of Hawai’i Island. Our store is over 3000 sq ft with classroom space, lounge, retail area, compressor/equipment repair work bench and above-ground heated indoor pool. We have the perfect location for a dive shop! Guests can rent stand-up paddle boards and walk across the street to enjoy at Reed’s Bay; and afterwards get a great Hawaiian plate lunch at one of the most popular restaurants in town. The store is a few blocks away from the Port of Hilo where we get lots of business from cruise ships. Just beyond the port are beautiful dive sites accessible from shore with high coral cover and lots of sea turtles, all less than a few miles from the shop! A quarter mile in the other direction is the boat ramp where our beautiful new True World Marine TE2810 28ft dive boat is moored across from the freshest seafood market you’ll ever find. In the winter, guests are only minutes away from stellar whale watching. During spring and summer, calmer conditions allow us to explore the Hamakua Coast that remains largely unexplored by divers.

    Our shop also offers swim lessons for kids, CPR/first aid classes, equipment rental and repair, and retails a diverse set of products to complete your ocean activities. Our equipment rental fleet is mostly new Aqua Lung wetsuits, BCDs, and regulators with dive computers. We also carry Huish products (Hollis, Oceanic, Zeagle, Atomic, Stahlsac), XS Scuba, Trident, Dive 1st Aid and other vendors. The equipment room has over 50 rental cylinders of all sizes, a smaller Mako compressor with our innovated air conditioned intake system, full work bench for equipment repair and cylinder inspections.

    The Mission of Hilo Ocean Adventures is: To protect, sustain and embrace our aina (land), creating lifelong memories with our aloha spirit and unforgettable ocean adventures. To accomplish this, we envision creating a business that will be recognized as the leading ocean adventure operation in Hawai’i, providing the best customer experience in the industry.

    What we are looking for:
