Owner description: Kona Honu Divers is locally owned and operated. 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.

I agree with an earlier review that said "The staff were all friendly, fun, but safety-oriented as well." The staff were also knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed their jobs. I wish I could say I got to do the manta dive with them, but I reserved three days in a row, each of which were cancelled due to hazardous tides. I... More

Did a total of five dives with Kona Honu Divers - including the 2-tank Manta Dive (saw 7 mantas) and Black Water dive (highly recommend this, for more experienced divers), and we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were all friendly, fun, but safety-oriented as well. We dive regularly and I must say that this company is among the best we've... More

The people part of this operation are simply outstanding. From Virginia in the office, to Captain's: John, Tom and Frankie and Dive Guides: Frankie, Nico and Terri and all the others too! Best boat in Kona. We come every year and have always had a great time :-)

We had a great time. Very helpful info on a way to the dive. The crew was very nice and knowledgeable about what we were about to experience. Hot tea and chocolate on a way back. The only criticism i have is that our guide didn't really focus on the mantas and we kind of missed some good shots. He... More

I have done the 2 tank Manta dive with Kona Honu divers 4 times now. I found them through a random internet search and was hooked after my 1st experience with them. The staff is fun and enthusiastic about what they do. I have always seen Mantas and the last time there was 7, which was the most I've ever... More

Enjoyed our dives with Captain Frank and Terri, our very enthusiastic and energetic dive master - great job on all fronts!! Terri even sent us go-pro videos that she took during our dive. All of our dive equipment was excellent and top-notch. My family and I also learned a lot from the crew about the sea life we visited. Unfortunately... More

My brother and I and our four boys took the intro scuba dive and we had a fantastic time. Terri and the other instructors were extremely helpful and informative. Three of us had never been scuba diving before but they prepared us on the same day and took us to two great dive sites. Both of our instructors were very... More

Purchased an Introductory Scuba Dive for my 12 year old son and snorkel dive for myself. Comprised onboard instruction and two ocean dives at two spots off the Koba Coast. Was somewhat anxious as to how my boy would go but need not have worried as Skipper Tom, instructors Terri and Kevin and the rest of the team really took... More

We have dived all over the U.S., Hawaii and the Caribbean and this is one of the best dive operations we have encountered. We did two two-tank morning dives and the manta night-dive with Kona Honu divers over the course of a week. The front office was well-organized and communicated clearly via email well in advance of our trips. We... More
