Ended up in Hawaii a few months ago, and wanted to do some diving while there. Came across the KDC while online one day. The reviews seemed favorable, to I picked up the phone and scheduled myself for a couple morning dives. When we finally landed on the Big Island, I has a bit haggard... to say the least. I... More

KDC is just amazing. The crew was really great - every divemaster was really on top of their stuff, did great briefings and showed us awesome things under water. They're super friendly, and really show that they're invested in making sure every diver has a great experience - when I mentioned having a preference for a weight belt over integrated... More

My husband & son did a 2 tank dive with KDC and had a great time! Shaggy is awesome! We also did a night dive/ snorkel with the Mantas. Jordan, Justin & Capt. Mike were outstanding! We saw 28 Mantas! Everyone was very professional, explained every aspect of what we would be doing and helped us have a great adventure.... More

I'm 15 and an advanced padi diver. The crew of KDC made me feel soo welcome, they greeted everyone by name and didn't hesitate to make conversation. I felt like they knew me personally, were extremely caring and loved what they did. The manta night dive was spectacular, but even better was the unplanned, spontaneous snorkeling with over 100 spinner... More

Can't say enough about the crew and gear at Kona Diving. We've never had a better experience. Really appreciated that they took the time to find us the right dive sights, split us into small groups and handled our gear for us. The safety briefing also covered what type of fish we might see so that we would know what... More

My husband and I booked a 5 day package with Kona Diving Company on our last trip b/c they were completely booked at the time and now I know WHY. They are truly the best dive company we have been with on the Big Island....and we've been diving with quite a few companies over the last several years. Most have... More

Thank you so much for 2 perfect days in the water! Apart from the amazing diving and the locations you picked (especially The Dome and The Hive on the long range trip) we just loved your passion for diving and marine life. Also, great & really personalised service, modern gear, ah and delicious brownies - we had so much fun!... More

We did these guys' 2-tank twilight reef dive plus night manta ray dive. This would have been a truly fabulous experience with anyone - we saw 4 mantas by day and had 30 (!) of them swooping around us at night. However, it was particularly good because the people at Kona Diving were so pleasant, competent, and fun. They really... More

This company is family owned and operated and the love shows. Many of the the fellow divers on the boat are return customers and have been diving with this company for years. This is the only place my wife is comfortable getting upgraded certifications because the training is so thorough. We can't say enough good things about Carrie and her... More
