This outfit is always top notch! They treat you like family and personalize every dive. They make safety calls and find amazing critters. Three days with them and leaving wishing I had booked a long range and about another year worth of dives. Great knowledge bank no matter which DM you get. Owner Kerry dives nearly every day and her... More

Did the first time divers course with Kona and was worried about having no pool session first. The instructor I was paired with (Alex) was fantastic and walked me through everything I needed to learn in a really safe, but open water environment. Waaaaay better than doing a pool course at another shop. After getting comfortable with the diving skills... More

Kona Dive Company has set the bar very high for any dive companies in Hawaii or anywhere else we dive. My wife (advanced diver) and I (Instructor) have been diving for quite along time and have dove in many different areas of the world. There is no where else I had rather be than underwater. KDC made our experience so... More

This is our second trip to Kona and the second time we booked our week long diving trip for our family. They take great care of our less experienced daughters. We took our daughters on their first night dive to see the mantas and Luke took great care of all of us especially handholding our daughters who were very nervous.... More

I had the pleasure to dive (while my friend snorkeled) with Kona Diving Company for both a night Manta 2 tank dive and 2 tank day dive. The crew was some of the most knowledgeable and friendly we have ever been out with. They are about the experience not the $$. They waited and let the other shops do all... More

My partner and I went with Kona Diving Company for the Manta Ray Night Snorkle and two 'Discover Scuba' day dives. The Company is a small family run operation with excellent attention to detail. Due to the size of the boat, trip groups are smaller - allowing more personal attention from staff. They provide all equipment which is clean, and... More

We did the two tank Manta Dive which is a standard for many of dive companies in Kona. Kona Diving company is a great choice because of their service and they are the last to leave the manta ray site. Our boat had 3 dive masters leading 11 divers and two snorkelers. It had shade and plenty of areas to... More

I did a 2 tank morning dive with the Kona Diving Company and really enjoyed my time. They recommend checking in the afternoon before. During that time they offered to take my gear (BCD, regulator, and wetsuit) with them to load up on the boat the next day. They provided clear instructions to the harbor which is a bit North...

I did a lot of research before choosing a dive shop. I have been on many dives around the world and know what a good dive shop can do and what a bad one can cause. I chose Kona Diving Company and I am very glad I did! The overall operation was very professional and also lots of fun. Jason... More

Kona Diving Company and their excursion was by far the best part of our Hawaii trip. My fiance and I did the manta ray night dive excursion (2-tank) which was from about 4:30pm to 10pm. There are two dives, one during the day and one at night specifically for the manta rays while they feed. The Kona Diving Company provided... More
