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.

My husband and I made 7 dives (2 2-tank morning charters, a 2-tank pm charter, and a 1-tank manta dive) with Kona Honu and really enjoyed them all and received a great package rate! All of the crew was fantastic- we had a great time with Kevin S, Bob, Chris B, Frank, John H, and Jeff- and they all made... More

Did two days with Kona Honu Divers. First day we hit two great spots, the lava tube tunnel was a lot of fun and Terri, our guide, found an octopus and shark for us! Second day, Kevin showed us around a great reef with lots of activity at Garden Eel Cove. This is the same site that becomes Manta Heaven... More

Can't say anything bad about the staff of Kona Honu - we were treated very well and felt safe and happy on our 2 dives. We did see plenty of cool fish, but were a little disappointed that there were no turtles, octopus, rays etc. Can't be sure if it's just bad luck (you never know what's going to show... More

My wife and I had an absolutely amazing experience with the Kona Honu dive team! They really made our dives safe and enjoyable. They were very knowledgeable about the marine life at each dive site and were great at pointing it out during the dives. We saw everything from angel fish, sea turtles, and octopus to a great hammer head... More

We went out on the night manta dive. we did two dives and had a great time. the guys say that they see mantas about 85% of the time which is reasonable. unfortunately we were in the 15% but still got to see some real cool fish eels and lobsters. the captain and one of the divers were awesome, one...

This was my second trip out with Kona Honu divers with the first being in January 2012. For this most recent trip I did not find the crew particularly friendly. I would also advise diving with a smaller outfit towards Waikoloa village as the reefs tend to be better further north, Manta dive is a must do! My best friend... More

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.
