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.

This was my son's first time diving, had taken the Padi certification at home and only had been in the pool before our trip. After meeting with the crew and Terri his instructor for the dive I felt very comfortable letting him go diving. The one on one instruction was great and Terri was an excellent instructor and guide.

2 years ago we got PADI certified with Kona Honu. I had been certified 40 years earlier and had kept up my snorkeling and free diving skills, but not used scuba since. My wife had snorkeled 2 or 3 times. Terri was our instructor and was able to help each of us at our disparate skill levels. In the ocean,... More

My husband and I had such a wonderful time with Kona Honu Divers on the Big Island. We were in Hawaii for two weeks, and had my brother diving with us one week, and two newly certified diver friends with us the second week. All of the dives were wonderful - we had spinner dolphins show up on 3 different... More

I love these guys. Always super friendly and superbly organized. Very professional with their gear and boat. First on site and sometimes the only boat on the reef. Will always dive with this crew in Kona! Mahalo!

It's all in the title. It was a great day out. We saw some cool things just boating and they stopped to check it out and they were very knowledgable and helpful above and below the water. I recommend this company 100%. I have over 50 dives and they are a great company.

Yesterday was my favorite dive since we went on the Manta Ray dive with Kona Honu Divers! First dive of the day was to a beautiful area with healthy coral and clouds of fish. Second dive was through some magical topography called Suck 'em Up. Our guide for the day, Ryan, had listened to our request for a chance to... More

We don't dive but love to snorkel--we chose to go with Kona Huna Divers because of their excellent reputation and also because they do not "chase" the dolphins. Our trip was the 5 hour snorkel and manta ray combo and the snorkeling wasn't really very good since you snorkel in the same place as the manta ray and it is... More

We had so much fun and got to see 8 manta rays! The crew was great and even stopped to let us do some whale watching on the way out!

Two friends and I booked a package for two morning dives and the evening manta ray dive. The morning dives were great. Our guide, Terri, knew where to find all the interesting critters and while on the boat we saw whales and dolphins. Unfortunately, the manta rays did not show up for the night dive. I understand that these are... More
