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...

My wife, two kids, and I were recently PADI open water certified and went with Lisa and Jason on a two tank morning dive. We were looking for a smaller boat for a more personal experience and that is exactly what we got. They were very accommodating and we felt very comfortable with the gear, dive site selection, and the... More

I have been diving with Honu over the years on visits to the Big Island. They never disappoint. Lisa is so knowledgeable about what we saw. She is always pointing out interesting things, that are so easy to miss. This last dive I was regulator to tentacle with an octopus before I saw it. How cool is that!!

My boyfriend and I went out with Lisa of Honu Sports last week for a dolphin swim and dive. It was great!!! I'm a moderately experienced diver and my boyfriend is working on his dive master so we both know what to look for and what we like in a dive trip. Honu does not dock their boat at the... More

My girlfriend and I are avid divers,.... Going out to dive with Lisa at Honu Sports was like going out to have fun with your favorite friend! Lisa's boat is plenty big for small party diving, stable and clean! Lisa knows all the spots to dive around Kona and when to go. We enjoyed our first trip out with Lisa... More

Lisa made us feel safe and made sure we were well educated on the equipment. She and her crew took the time to make us feel comfortable before we actually dove down. Lisa did a great job keeping everyone together and showing us all the marine life. Lisa doesn't have the huge commercial feel, she gives you plenty of 1... More
