Kona Diving Company were very professional, friendly and went out of their way to assist you. We truly could recommend this Dive Company to all as they provided us with a warm shower after our dives, hot chocolate, brownies, manta information, great diving gear and a wonderful dive master who really did take his time to talk to us and...

We have dived with a number of different dive companies in a few different countries now and Kona Diving Company is unquestionably the best, most consistent and organised dive company we have come across. Without exception, the crew were knowledgeable and enthusiastic, imparting their pre-dive briefings professionally and, regularly, with humour (Jason and Luke's manta double act was nearly as...

My boyfriend doesn't have trip advisor, but he had such a great time, I figured I'd write a review for him. He did a 2 tank dive this past Tuesday and he said the crew, boat, snacks and dive were one of the best he's ever encountered. Thank you for making our trip memorable.

These guys are great. I dove with them about 2 years ago for a few days. Returned last week and the same crew was there and remembered me from the previous trip. They are very informative and fun to dive with...Thanks again.

Wow! Just wow! Absolutely amazing and what an awesome crew. Nice boat with such a professional and courteous crew. Thanks to Shaggy (skipper), Jason and Alex on the boat, they care about the environment they are in and took every step necessary to continue to look after it. From the moment we check in at the shop Hayley and Ali... More

This is a very professional dive operation catering to beginning divers as well as very advanced including re breathers. Their dive shop is fantastic for doing course work and they have one of the best run dive boats I have seen in 25 years of diving. Dive sites are close, so the ride is short. The dive masters are all... More

My husband and I booked a last minute manta ray night dive with KDC. We called several local places and they were the only ones that would/could squeeze us in. I'm so glad they did because the staff at KDC has easily been the best dive staff we have ever dove with! From the warm welcome when we checked in... More

Great people, great equipment, great boat. I've reviewed them before, they haven't slipped a bit! In fact they are better! The dive shop has been re-done and they now carry Cressi. It's a nicer place shop. Diving is fantastic! Today we saw three Manta's and a whole pack of Dolphins... And a ton of other stuff. Unlike other operators, they... More

We were only on the island for a few days but KDC went out of their way to get us under the water. We didn't end up getting to dive with them, there weren't enough people booked for our boat, but they went the extra mile and got us set up with another dive company, answered all our questions, and...
