It was a beautiful sunny day and Captain Joe just got done with his briefing. We headed out into Maunalua Bay and the 82 degree water looked very inviting. We made our way to Koko Craters which had good visibility and a max depth of 36 ft. We had some mild current underneath, but didn’t […]
About Daniel Bond
Being born and raised in a small town, Excello, MO, obtaining his BA in Christian Music Education, and a long history of teaching/youth ministry there was rarely a mention of scuba diving anywhere.
But one day in 2013 the call/opportunity came for him and his wife to move to the Cayman Islands as a music teacher. Instantly falling in love with the ocean, he soon gained interest in doing everything the water had to offer. Upon completing his 1st dive Daniel was hooked! By the year of 2016 Daniel achieved his instructor certification. Still loving the island life, but wanting to be back in the United States, Hawaii became the #1 obvious choice.
Presently working at Island Divers, Daniel loves the ability to allow others experience the beautiful waters of Hawaii. He likes that he gets to meet various people from all over the world and is excited on seeing what else he can achieve being an instructor at Island Divers Hawaii.

The day was hot and made us ready to get into the amazing 80 degree water. We had certified divers, student divers, and DSD’s eager to see what the ocean would let us see that day. We talked it over and quickly figured out that Koko Craters was the site to check out. Captain Joe […]

There is no better way to escape the heat then go diving! Well that’s what 6 other certified and 1 DSD divers thought as well. So everyone showed up ready to go, boat briefing was done, and we were on our way to the open sea. The water temperature was around 79 degrees and everyone […]
July 7, 2017 started out as any other day as we got the Sea Fox ready for another trip out into the Maunalua Bay. Everything was set and this day was special because out of the many people who were going on the dive we had two honeymoon couples on board! What better way than […]
Working at a dive shop allows you to meet all sorts of people from all backgrounds, cultures, and in this case…ages! First of all meet the Davis family from Colorado with their youngest Jackson aka “Jack” who is 11 yrs old and not afraid to scuba dive! I believe this boy has an incredible future […]
