Just went for a two tank dive on April 22, 2015. Staff were fantastic. My husband and I dove with Kevin who was patient and diligent in showing us the great underwater sites in the area. Would definitely recommend diving with this outfit over driving to Kona to go with a larger dive shop. Much better!

This is a family ran business and the owners are very very skilled and easy to get along with. I went on the morning 8am dive, the water was actually pretty warm and they supplied us with body suits, snorkel, goggles, and fins without extra charge. The trip was about 4 hours and we ended up seeing a lot of... More

We had a great experience with this company! Our family of five (2 teenage girls and our 10yr old son), were joined by only one couple on this tour. It was just our nice small group in the spot to ourselves. We had two big Mantas put on a great show for us. It was amazing! One of them brushed... More

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our night time manta ray snorkel experience with Kevin, Eric and Alice. Kevin explained the procedure to us snorkelers in an informative and humorous way, and it's clear how much he cares about these majestic creatures. It was unforgettable to see these gentle giants gracefully glide upwards toward us and then flip over, showing... More

My teenage daughters, spouse and I (along with friends) did two excursions with BWDA--a night manta snorkel trip, and a two-tank dive during the day. Both were trip highlights because of the team of Kevin, Tony, Alice and Eric. Friendly, professional and enthusiastic--what more can you want. I think my daughters consider the manta dive one of the highlights of... More

Excellent time for whale watching with sightings from the moment you left dock to coming back. Staff / guide very knowledgable. A definite must when visiting the big island.

Did a 2 tank morning dive and the night Manta Ray dive with Blue Wilderness. Ted was super helpful in the store as was Kevin. Eric and Kevin gave us a great view of whales breaching on the way to our day dive. Water was a bit mucked up from a storm but Kevin was a consciencious dive master. Had... More

Bad place for a manta ray SNORKEL. If you're a diver, this place is fine. We went on the night manta snorkel and the employees told us during the briefing the divers would point their lights up and the surfboard the snorkelers would be handing onto would have a light as well but pointing down. It would be symbiotic relationship... More

Aloha and Mahalo for sharing your Manta experience with us. We are sad to hear you didn't appreciate seeing Csilla Ray on your snorkel trip. Our skilled Instructors always make sure our "Campfire Lightbox" lights are always pointed up and our scuba divers 800 Lumen lights point vertically so as to not blind each other on each dive. This technique... More

Did a 2 tank dive. The wet suit I got was old and had holes in it all over. As a result, I was cold during the dives, and did not enjoy my experience. That said, the staff was friendly, and it was fun diving with them.
