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. Encounters with dolphin, turtles, and manta rays are common in the placid Kona waters. « less

This was one of the most breathtaking experiences I've ever had. Floating in the water with manta rays swimming around literally inches from me was truly spectacular. The staff were great, friendly and really knowledgeable, and all the equipment, including wet suits, was provided, as well as snacks, water and hot drinks for afterwards. Just be careful if you get... More

We did 4 dives with Kona Honu Divers on July 3rd and had a great time. Their staff is friendly and confident, they took good care of us and showed us the amazing underwater world around Kona. Their equipment is up to date and the staff had been switching the gear in between the dives - very convenient. Great food... More

Could not have asked for a better crew to help me on my first dive. I had never been scuba diving before, but I went with a group of people who had, and it was a blast (once I got over my initial fear of the regulator). Terri was extremely thorough in covering the basics with me and I especially... More

A night dive with Manta Rays at Garden Eel Cove (Ho'ona Bay) was the absolutely spectacular highlight of our four weeks on the Big Island of Hawaii. The manta rays were numerous and elegant, with 'wing-spans' up to 15 feet. From the boat, we descended to a shallow rendezvous, swam about a hundred feet, and sat on the bottom in... More

This company is awesome! I have done the 2 tank Manta Ray night dive, twice in a 5 year period with this same company and would highly recommend them! They are professional and knowledgable and really helpful. 5 Stars all around for them and this dive.

This boat was well equipped, the crew seemed knowledgeable. Bit of a problem that the head wasn't working (so only 4 stars), but it all worked out. Had a great trip out and saw manta rays. OMG!!! I would go with this company again for the trip.

Kona Honu has good locations for scuba diving, the crew knows their stuff, and it is a limited-frills lets go scuba diving cruise for a decent price instead of the more costly boat tours. If you are looking for a good morning dive at a couple of sites, these are the folks for you!

These folks are top notch! I took my open water cert. with them in 2013 and returned this year (2014) for several fantastic days of boat diving as well as the manta ray night dive. Some of the best times ever. Instructors, guides and crew are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Will be returning next trip for sure... Matt P.

Night diving with the manta rays is an experience like none other. Kona Honu Divers is highly professional with safety being top priority which enhanced the high quality of the experience. Manta rays were plentiful.
