While visiting Kona during the past weeks, specifically for the IRONMAN World Championships, I decided to get my certification in Open Water Diving. After thorough research, I determined my best choice would be to certify completely with Kona Diving Company. With 12 hours time difference between Switzerland and Kona, I knew that communication would be somewhat tricky. From the "getgo",... More

We booked a trip quite late with Kona Diving Company and they very quickly emailed us to let us know that they didn't have availability. They also called one of the other local companies and got us a spot on their boat so we could still dive that day. Thanks and hope to dive with you guys next time we... More

Diving with the Kona Diving is a rear pleasure. The crew are professionals who love what they do and they make everybody to feel being a welcomed guest. I have some physical limitations and the entire crew was extremaly helpful to me in a very discrete way. I was lucky to dive first with divemaster David on a 2-tank morning... More

If you're going to do one scuba dive in any of the Hawaiian Islands, do the night time manta dive and do it with these guys. I did the two tank dive (one reef dive, one manta night dive). The boat was clean, and spacious. We only had 6 people in our group. They do all gear set up, break... More

If you are diving on the Kona coast, there is no one better to dive with! I did seven days of diving, each day the crew asked everyone where they had been (actually they remember where you have been better than you do) and make sure they do a different dive site and ask if anyone has special requests. They... More

Dropping down into the warm but inky black depths off the Kona coast on the Big Island in Hawaii, where the cooled lava rocks are black and the sand is black all I can see are torch beams darting around like lasers. Though I know somewhere out there in the dark are giants, the Manta Ray's we've came here to... More

As far as we're concerned, you needn't keep shopping for a dive shop. From the first time we called just researching, Katie and the rest of the team provided everything we needed. Fantastic and attentive customer service. Expert advice and preparation. As beginners, we found that our instructor David set just the right learning pace for us, squeezed in all... More

I just got back from a trip to the Big Island and thought my dives with Kona Diving Company were a real highlight of the trip. There are a ton of dive shops on the Island, so I did a little research before I went and was not disappointed. This was clearly a smaller shop, filled with people who simply... More

These guys were so friendly and they love what they do. They have been to these dive sites hundreds of times and they love it as much as you do. I really enjoyed the individualized attention and the fact that they really connected with all of us on the boat. We became friends as we got to know each other.... More
