From the moment you step into the shop or prepare to board our boat, you become part of our "ohana" or family. Our boat is safe and comfortable. Our dives are guided by knowledgeable instructors who brief you on what to expect to see before you enter the water.

I had 5 days of diving booked with these guys, unfortunately the combination of a broken engine and a hurricane bearing down on Hawaii made a mess of my plans. The staff were helpful at getting my dives re-organized and gave a generous discount for the inconvenience. Which was much appreciated, especially since they must’ve been losing a lot of... More

We are new divers, as we have already taken the Padi advanced, and wanted to make a tune up before trying the Mantaray night dive. Both experiences have been wonderful. Thank you very much to Stacey, our instructor, who made ease our tune up in Kona, and to all the crew for the Mantaray experience. This last has been a... More

I went by myself for a whole day and had a great time. I am somewhat of a novice and the guides and crew made me feel comfortable and confident. The underwater scenery was great, even as I blew through my air at an unfortunate rapid pace. I did the whole day and went to three reefs and the Manta... More

We liked them so much that we dove with them for 8 dives! Think we met almost every crew member and each brought something different to learn and see! The night Manta Dive was surreal! Will dive with them again when we go back to Big Island! Thanks Guys for making it so much fun!

My family and I had a blast on our first dive as a family (my oldest son and I had been diving before, but my wife and youngest son - age 12 - got certified specifically for this trip). The dive sites were very good for divers of our skill level and experience, and the divemasters and captain were fantastic.... More

Kevin was an excellent guide and dive master. We dove with our newly certified 12 yr old son and the staff was very attentive. The dive itself was incredible! The mantas swim right over your head. If you're intimidated by a night dive, The snorkelers and divers all have lights and it's like Vegas underwater. We got great footage with... More

I was looking for a single tank manta dive that would also take snorkelers and found that Kona Honu Divers were the only ones with seats available for the entire family. This proved to be a great trip for all of us. We loaded our stuff on the boat and all rental equipment was prepared for us. We had been... More

We had a great experience working with Kona Honu divers. The staff and crew were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The dive boat was spacious, well prepared, and comfortable. I took my wife and three teenage kids on the 2-tank, night manta ray dive on July 1, 2014. The manta ray dive was spectacular and exceeded our expectations. It's hard to... More

Our group of 6 went diving with Kona Honu Divers in March, I should have written this review immediately because this is one of the best if not, THE best dive operation we've seen. We took advantage of their gear service and every morning our gear was back on the boat for us all setup and ready to use, it's... More

I was a little dismayed to get to the boat to see 10+ people there (I ordinarily prefer to scuba with smaller groups) but the staff did break us out into groups of four, which helped quite a bit with crowding and pacing. We weren't rushed at all and each group got lots of individual attention from very knowledgeable instructors.... More
