I have dove with numerous dive ops and Kona Dive Company ranks right up there with the best! Nice unhurried dives where you get to dive your air. No set timelines to follow! Great boat crew and dive guides! Will definitely use them again! Manta night dive was AWESOME!!

My husband and I did 6 dives with Kona Diving including the Manta Ray dive. The staff is great and very knowledgable. They even made sure I had a gluten free wrap each day I dove with them. The Manta Ray dive was fun. We only had one Manta Ray but one was a thrill to see.

My sister and I went on the manta ray day night dive with Kona Diving Company last week. The whole experience was absolutely fabulous - I cannot recommend Kona Diving Company highly enough. The equipment was all in perfect condition and I finally got a mask that didn't leak AT ALL!! They listened to any concerns we had about how... More

We arrived in Kona and had to scramble to get on a manta dive ... Luckily Kona Diving Company had spots the following night. We also wanted to do day dives so they wait listed us. The wait list does work and they were able to offer us spots, however we had booked a visit to the volcano the following... More

My partner and myself had the chance to go for the manta rays snorkel trip with Jordan. We were the first boat to arrive at the "manta ray village" and one of the last to leave. Jordan knows a lot about the rays and answered all our questions. The rays arrived soon after dark and the show Started. We counted... More

The staff from the Sheraton at Kona recommended this company, and I am so pleased they did! I had not scuba in over three years and I felt I needed some extra TLC...The staff at Kona Diving were incredibly professional, friendly and capable from the reservations to the execution of the dives. I took a refreshing class in the ocean... More

The crew was knowledgable, interesting, warm, friendly, kind, expert, funny, and utterly attentive to every detail. I did a 3 day dive package, and added the Manta Ray night dive at the end. 27 Mantas joined us for the perfect finish to a brilliant diving trip. The children on board for snorkeling were captivated by Luke's hilarious warm up talk,... More

Truly an extraordinary experience. I've dived perhaps a hundred dives, including whales and sharks in tahiti, cayman Islands, Cenotes in the Yucatan and this experience was just the most extraordinary ever. Over a dozen giant mantas (10-15 foot wingspan) doing an incredible 'dance' in 35 feet of water, flying over our heads (very close) in a graceful ballet. And kona... More

My wife and I are recreational divers, and Kona Diving Company did an excellent job taking care of us and making sure we felt comfortable the whole time. They crew was extremely inviting and knowledgeable. Their love for diving and Hawaii was clearly apparent. It was impressive to see the number of repeat customers on the boat, and we too... More

After having some dives canceled because of hurricane iselle, we finally got to dive with KDC. I had picked up a cold along the trip (boo) and was worried that I may have to cancel the trip. I decided to just tag along with my husband and see how I feel. Billy was our DM and "shaggy" was our boat... More
