Hi, I'm Emilie!

Accommodating Your Style

 

I am a Social Worker by education and professional training. However, I pivoted in my career because of my passion and love for scuba diving!

 

I've been diving Hawaii for over 15 years and have explored nearly every nook and cranny.  My personal favorites on O'ahu are Shark's Cove and Three Tables in the North Shore.
 

I love searching for all types of ocean life including: octopus, dolphins, eels, and turtles. 

 

I'm passionate about creating smiles on the faces of whom I take underwater!

Emilie is super calm and doesn't push you, she put zero pressure for me to go under the water. She walked me through the safety steps, making sure all my questions were answered. It was indescribable. Best day I've had in a long time.

Awesome experience with Emilie at Magic Lagoon in Waikiki. She is patient, lets you go at your own pace and balances the fear factor with encouragement and positivity. All the equipment was solid and serviceable and has been cleaned and sanitized (important in the COVID world).
