About Us

Who We Are

Explore Kauai Scuba is a family owned and operated company that leads marine life scuba tours off of Kauai and Ni’ihau. We pride ourselfs on safety, keeping groups small and intimate (6 divers max), and focusing heavily on marine life! We are the only scuba diving operation that runs its charters out of Kikiaoloa Small Boat Harbor. This harbor is the closest harbor to Ni’ihau (arguably the best diving in the state of Hawaii), Mana Crack, and the Na Pali Coast thus keeping our travel times to a minimum. Our local diving is rich and diverse with marine life. A lot of our nutrient rich west side dive sites are untouched and the marine life flourishes here. You are guaranteed to dive with experienced instructors knowledgeable of the local sites and marine life. EKS uses very little waste on our tours (mostly compostable) and our  boat has environmentally friendly engines keeping our ecological footprint small.

Captain & Instructor – Nick Croft

Nick has had a love for the ocean since he was a young child. For his 12th birthday, his parents surprised him with scuba classes, where his passion grew even further. Nick became a divemaster in Northern California and loves diving Monterey, CA. His urge for adventure brought him to Kauai in 2011 to explore the amazing warmer Pacific waters. These days, diving is not Nick’s job, it’s his lifestyle. Even after all the customers have gone, Nick will be found in the water. He is also an avid spear fisherman and has a deep respect and   appreciation for all that the ocean provides. He is a true waterman.
