There are so many choices when visiting the Big Island to dive with and even more so in terms of seeing the manta rays at night via snorkel or scuba. Let me help you through the clutter…go with Kona Diving Company. They are professional and fun! That is the right combo for this excursion. I did a 2 tank dive... More

I'm enjoying my first trip to the big island and have discovered the best dining company I've ever encountered. After diving in many great locations around the world, I can say with certainty that the Kona Diving Company has the most service-oriented and professional crew I've experienced. It is obvious that they love what they do and are extremely knowledgable... More

We did several dives. Staff was super nice and helpful. Small dive boat with low diver to dive master ratios made for a great experience. During the day dives our dive master pointed out frog fish, rare eels, resting sharks, and a host of other critters. You dive your tank so if you're good with air consumption you have long... More

This was our first ocean dive after certification. We weren't quite sure what to expect or what diving would be like. As it turned out, KDC made our 5 dive trip an experience that we will never forget. KDC has set the bar really high. We liked it so much that we took another dive vacation 2 months later. KDC...

This is definitely a highlight of our trip so far! One negative: the dinner provided is more of a light snack and not substantial at all. However, more than making up for it were Jordan, Shaggy, Dennis and David. These guys were simply amazing and we can't thank them enough. We were lucky enough to have a very special night... More

We experienced outstanding service & diving-snorkelling experiences with KDC last week on vacation in Kona. Husband is experienced diver, rates their high end customer service, attention to detail (cleaning wetsuits & gear), expertise of team, great sense of humour & management of divers. I was a snorkeller with Ian at the Manta Ray cove, afternoon snorkel & evening torchlight experience... More

Just did 5 charters with KDC. This is the most professional and service oriented dive shop I have ever dealt with. Everyone from the shop to the DM to the captain to the owner did everything possible to make sure your charter was the best it could be. DM's were very knowledgeable and always tried to find interesting things for... More

I just returned from a great vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. A highlight was the two morning dives with Kona Diving Company. On the first dive I was fortunate enough to have a hump back whale come within thirty feet of us. Great find Luke! My two dive masters, Luke and Shaggy, were outstanding. The staff very professional,... More

We've dived/snorkelled with 4 companies in Hawaii on our trip and this was the best one. Granted, the standards in Hawaii are higher than most others we've tried around the world but right off the bat we felt they were genuinely nice, not just professionally nice. It's a smaller boat so it books up really fast. Snacks are great, dive... More
