My girlfriend and I went night snorkelling with manta rays and to say it is a once in a lifetime experience is a massive understatement. It was amazing. Our snorkel guide Flossy was a legend and took us out snorkelling for a few hours beforehand in the daylight which was also great. We loved it so much, we booked in... More

Unfortunately we were only diving on Kona for one day, but when we go back (which we will) we will definitely dive with KDC again. We did two morning dives, which were awesome. Among other things, we saw turtles, sting rays, and a Tiger shark, which was far away, but very cool to see. The dive masters were great, knew... More

All the 5 star reviews here are well deserved! My husband booked 2 dives for us which included a manta ray dive during our stay on the Big Island. From the booking to the diving, everything was easy and well organized. The staff were super friendly and helpful at checkin. This courteous and personable attitude continued the day of our... More

On the last day of our trip to the Big Island my cousin and I went snorkeling with dive masters Jordan and Ally, boat captain Mike, 8 snorkelers and 6 divers to a site off the Kona airport where various dive operations host trips to see Manta Rays. These dive operations cooperate by setting up lights after dark that attract... More

I would highly recommend Kona Dive Company to both experienced and novice divers. Very courteous and knowable staff - including a working owner. Great rental equipment as well for those needing BCDs and other equipment.

I began corresponding with KDC probably 3 weeks in advance trying to set up my dive vacation from Wisconsin. Every email I sent off to them was answered quickly, thoroughly, and with both humor and respect. Never did I feel that I had asked a stupid question or that I was a bother to them. I ended up doing 6... More

This was our very first ocean dive after having been certified for scuba diving. We did two dives the first day, and a day dive and a night dive the second day. The night dive with the manta rays was the most breath taking sight I could imagine. The instructors and crew were all very knowledgeable and fun, and I... More

This crew really takes care of you diving. They are calm, incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and they educate you on the aquatic life before you dive. Then they feed you tasty snacks in between dives and provide warm drinks or soup/broth for any post dive chill you may have. The brownies were amazing too and they made them fresh every day....

This was our second trip to Hawaii and diving with KDC. The staff kept records from our last trip, and used it to personalize our experience this time, so we felt comfortable right from the start. We did 22 dives over 2 weeks, so we met just about everyone, and they all worked hard to make sure everyone had a... More
