Wonderful staff!! enjoyment and safety are their top priorities . Knowledgeable about the dive sites. Took us to great spot from manta rays to small crustaceans we had to look at with a magnifying glass. I have been on only 13 dives in three years and took my first nitrox dive with them. We had variety of skill levels and... More

Wow, it is with total and utter disbelief that someone created a review of KDC that spoke of owner and dive master Kerry Key as a rude person. It must have been nitrogen narcosis, or complete loss of mind! KDC is with out a doubt the best diving experience in the Big Island. My wife and I just completed our... More

My husband and I are currently on our fourth trip with Kona Diving Company. We keep coming back because Kerry Key, the owner, and her staff are incredibly fun, safe, and knowledgeable and consistently go out of their way to ensure that their guests have the best experience possible. We love diving with them! Whether it's sharing her passion for... More

My wife and I went out with Kona Dive to do the Manta Ray night dive, which was awesome. My wife doesn't dive and she felt very comfortable snorkelling, while I was diving, from the same boat. Captain Shaggy and his crew were great, very friendly and professional and most importantly we got to see the manta rays feeding and... More

These helpful folks helped get me a mask that fit. I have struggled with the online things for years as I live where there are not dive shops. Also lost my snorkel and they set me up with a new one. I did not like the keeper so returned and they fixed me up with a different one. Very patient... More

The female owner has an attitude that is NOT pleasant. Local business owners need to treat everyone, including local residents with respect. As a person in the hospitality industry I will never recommend Kona Diving Company to anyone! Get over yourself there are other places that treat people with aloha!

Aloha konaislandgurl, I am Kerry Key, the female owner of Kona Diving Company. It's been a little over 24 hours since I first read your review. I've really struggled with how to respond to you! I sent you a private message to determine how I know you, but you haven't responded to me. After racking my brain and talking to... More

Mike, Jordan, & Luke showed us a wonderful evening with the manta rays off of the Sheraton on July 16, 2015. The seas were calm, weather perfect, and the mantas hungry and cooperative! We saw 12 that night, up close and very personal. Kona Diving was the ideal group to go out with. Knowledgeable (& personable!) crew and guides, a... More

All the team including Alex, David, Jason, captains Mike, Shaggy is a great team to dive with. I was there with my two teenagers (11 and 16) and they really well take care of us. Great dives with mantas, monk seal, dolphins, eagle ray, white tip sharks. Highly recommended. Stephane (Padi Instructor #305208)

I went with my two sons (age 13 and 14) on a discover scuba diving trip. We had been looking very much forward to it, and were not at all disappointed. We were met by very professional, enthusiastic and competent people from checking in at the shop the day before to the actual trip. My sons had never dived before,... More

They did it again!!! I can't begin to say enough about this company. This trip, my wife (June -July) and I decided to Shore and Boat Dive. Kona Dive Company (KDC) can provide everything.
