I really enjoyed my dives with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures. Prices feel steep, but everything in the area is pricey. These guys were worth the money. They are extremely nice people who genuinely care about your dive experience. The dive masters are very attentive and professional. The dive groups are small, so you never feel crowded or ignored. Their system... More

I have been diving with Mauna Lani Sea adventures for about 5 years. In fact, Mauna Lani has become a second home for our family. We often visit 2-3 times per year. One of the main reasons that I look forward to our trips is diving with the Mauna Lani Sea Adventures team. Whether it is Gary, Steve, Spike, Chris... More

My husband and I had never been scuba diving before, so we took the introductory dive course and then went on a 2nd dive a few days later, and both were wonderful experiences. The instructors were patient and clearly explained everything to us and made us feel very comfortable. We would definitely reccomend them!!

We booked a whale watch with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures because it was a 5 min walk from our room at the resort. However, I had read many positive reviews on Trip Advisor before our trip. It was just so convenient to walk over and not have to go for a long shuttle ride to reach boarding location. Captain Don... More

Safe. Competent. Accommodating. Enthusiastic. Genuinely friendly. Courteous. Know the area well. Equipment and boats in good to excellent condition. Dive sites close to their dock.

We dive with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures every time we are on the Big Island, which is yearly. They are extremely professional, their expertise is unsurpassed, safety is their priority, and the dives are extraordinary. Steve, Gary and Skip will give you a diving experience you will not forget. The groups are very small, and they treat you like family.... More

We have about 100 dives in our log books. First dive trip to Big Island; decided to book with ML sea Adventures because of a write-up in Sport Diver Magazine about their service. Dove 3 days with them. We have never experienced such excellent service from a dive company. Once you bring your equipment, you never touch it again. And... More

Outstanding scuba intro. Then after a short break, did another 1 tank dive. The crew at the "office" was very helpful in arranging allowing me to take both dives on the same day. Chris taught the intro class as well as lead me on the next dive. He did a great job assisting the other diver in clearing ears and... More

I went out on the Catamaran snorkeling trip with Captain Tony of the Mauna Lani Sea Adventures on 9/11 and it was one of the best snorkeling trips ever. We started the morning watching a big group of spinner dolphins frolicking along the boat then veered over to find the large manta rays that Captain Tony heard were close by.... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Orchid and took the morning snorkel trip with Mauna Lani Sea Adventures. Nice boat, with a decent amount of shade. Friendly crew. We went out, and saw the dolphins. Came back to “A” Bay (don’t ask me what the Hawaiian name is, but even the locals know “A” Bay), and went snorkeling. We were lucky—we... More
