Colin and crew and the whole staff at Big Island are exceptional. From setting up me hear upon arrival, to cleaning it when finished to safekeeping it until the next five, they are systematic, customer service friendly and an all around great dive outfit.

We spent a morning with Big Island Divers to snorkel with spinner dolphins. We had a group of adults and children (ages 10-13). We'd done dolphin experiences before in swimming pools on previous vacations but this is a whole new world. It was incredible!! We were taken out to an area where there must have been hundreds of dolphins "sleeping"... More

We have been coming to The Big Island for many years and have always booked out dives with Big Island divers. I called prior to our trip to see about scheduling a private instructor for our 10 year old daughter's referral dives to get her PADI certification. They said he had to join the existing group they had which didn't... More

We are glad to see you had a great time when you were finally able to get a booking with us and that you enjoyed our crew and the dives. :) As for March, it is “Spring Break” on the Big Island of Hawaii and we really get busy. It is almost impossible to get reservations at the last moment,... More

My husband was so excited to do a manta ray dive, so we decided to do the 2 tank dive. We dive in Hawaii a lot but we hadn't ever seen manta rays, or been diving on the big island. We brought all of our own gear, but there is the option to rent. I did rent a wetsuit because... More

The night manta ray scuba dive with Big Island Divers was a well-run, entertaining, professional experience from start to finish. Special thanks to our dive guide Zane, and to Captain Chris. Videos on YouTube or the BID website are pretty accurate - the night dive is a haunting, ethereal atmosphere, lots of ambient light, and you just sit there (in... More

Had an awesome experience on the boat dive today with Big Island Diver: Captain Scott, Dive Masters Sarah and Kelly were awesome. To top off a great dive experience, we also got to watch a pod of spotted nose dolphins play in the wake of the boat! A memory maker for sure! If you are a diver, and are on... More

This was an unbelievable experience. People do excursions all the time, but once its over they may never do it again. This is one excursion I will do every time I go to Big Island. Big Island Divers is a superb provider. The crew of the ship were a lot of fun, professional and super friendly. We were the first... More

My Wife and I went on a night Manta snorkeling on March 9, 2015, after a choppy viewing of the Manta Ray's my wife was climbing up onto the boat as a wave came from behind and hit causing her to fall as she was climbing up the ladder into the boat, instead of any assistant (she hit very hard)...

Collin, Dylan, and Jonathan - you guys were great! Give these guys a raise! First off, we had a big party of family members - 8 in all. So we chartered the whole boat and SAVED money! Plus you feel like Donald Trump. No Mantas was a drag but you can't force nature. Collin took us on a nice night... More

I have always wanted to try diving and this was an amazing first experience. The crew were very professional, supportive and encouraging as I was a little nervous at the last moment. I'd highly recommend Big Island Divers and the PADI Discover Diving opportunity for anyone interested in trying diving before taking the full course. We saw so many dolphins,... More
