It has been a really nice experience diving with the Manta Rays on this two-tank dive trip with Lisa (our boat captain) and Kelly (our dive master). The group size is only 6 people (plus the captain and the dive master) which makes it for a really private experience. I loved that! Lisa brought some water, snacks and the best... More

We found Honu at trip advisor and selected it to be our operator for scuba dive in Big Island. From the beginning, Lisa (the owner) was very sympathetic, attentive in our arrangements, She was able to attend all of our requests - a group of 5 for 2 scuba dives, 2 tanks each, in an "easy" place. Totally satisfied! The... More

Family of four including 2 snorkelers and 2 divers. We did the two-tank dive and that was absolutely great. Saw at least four different mantas at Manta Heaven. The operation is well run and straightforward. The maximum group size is 6 makes for a very small group and therefore a very personalized tour which is awesome. Lisa was Captain and... More

I've been coming to the big island specifically to dive with Lisa and Honu Sports for about ten years. I refuse to dive with anyone else! -I love the small group sizes and personable, knowledgeable crew. They take their groups to the best spots near Kona and they'll diversify your sites and experiences if you're doing more than a couple... More

I have been diving with Lisa for 13 years and she is the best out there. Her boat takes 6 divers (max) which is what we love. You always get a customized experience and never feel like you're rushed or just one of the crowd. Her dive style is true Hawaiian style... Slow and laid back. There is no stress... More

Lisa was a great captain and leader. There were many great things about her tour: 1) it's small - maximum six people - so she could give us all a lot of attention; 2) she's very knowledgeable about the area and the best places to snorkel or dive; 3) she's very concerned with the ecological impact of the tours, making...

Had an amazing experience diving with Honu Sports in Hawai'i. Immediately after landing, my boyfriend and I drove to the Honokohau Marina harbor. We were on the boat and out in the ocean soon after. Captain Lisa and our instructor Kelly were very kind, accommodating, and professional. We did the beginning scuba skills/dive option and Kelly was very patient which... More

Our family of four had a wonderful experience diving with owner Lisa and her various crew members--Jason, Mike and Shawn. We look for dive boats that take out smaller numbers of people, and we were not disappointed. We dove with just our family of four, and only twice, had one other couple diving with us. This gave us an opportunity... More

My husband, three daughters and I had the pleasure of diving last month with Honu Sports. Lisa and Jason are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We were the only divers with them and our two lengthy dives were great. Especially memorable was the "Aquarium" site with the "Suck 'em up" lava tube that Jason lead us through - an exciting adventure... More

Every aspect of our dive experiences with Lisa and the Honu Sports crew was wonderful. Her personal care and attention to every detail made each trip very special. We did three trips in as many days with Honu Sports. We went snorkeling, scuba diving, and night swimming with the Manta Ray's. Each experience was, well... indescribable. Lisa's passion for the...
