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

Great dive company!, When visiting the Kona area there is no reason to dive with anyone else!!! My next Kona visit will include more diving with this excellent company.

I have dove with numerous dive ops and Kona Dive Company ranks right up there with the best! Nice unhurried dives where you get to dive your air. No set timelines to follow! Great boat crew and dive guides! Will definitely use them again! Manta night dive was AWESOME!!

My husband and I did 6 dives with Kona Diving including the Manta Ray dive. The staff is great and very knowledgable. They even made sure I had a gluten free wrap each day I dove with them. The Manta Ray dive was fun. We only had one Manta Ray but one was a thrill to see.

My sister and I went on the manta ray day night dive with Kona Diving Company last week. The whole experience was absolutely fabulous - I cannot recommend Kona Diving Company highly enough. The equipment was all in perfect condition and I finally got a mask that didn't leak AT ALL!! They listened to any concerns we had about how... More

We arrived in Kona and had to scramble to get on a manta dive ... Luckily Kona Diving Company had spots the following night. We also wanted to do day dives so they wait listed us. The wait list does work and they were able to offer us spots, however we had booked a visit to the volcano the following... More

My partner and myself had the chance to go for the manta rays snorkel trip with Jordan. We were the first boat to arrive at the "manta ray village" and one of the last to leave. Jordan knows a lot about the rays and answered all our questions. The rays arrived soon after dark and the show Started. We counted... More
