The boat crew was outstanding, fun, and accommodating. They have snacks and sodas on hand free of charge and they provide a safe enjoyable experience you will never forget. Thank you Alyssa and Andrew!

Just got back from Kona where I spent 4 days diving with Big Island Divers. The level of service was the best I have ever had diving. The divemasters Tara and Sam were outstanding- knowledgeable and very friendly. Both are excellent octopus spotters!!! The Captain Andrew was also very friendly which has not been my experience on our last dive... More

On a recent trip, 7 friends and I went with Big Island Divers on their Manta Ray night dive/snorkel. Two did the scuba dive and the other 6 of us did the snorkel. For all of us, this was one of our greatest experiences in life and I can't recommend it highly enough. We had a fabulous crew that included... More

The manta dive experience is one that is not to be missed. Big Island divers goes to the airport location that has a lot of manta activity. The staff, Dive masters and boat captains were wonderful. Malea and Sarah B made the trip memorable! If you have a small group and can charter their smaller boat it is well worth... More

Went on a morning dive with Bob and crew and they were awesome! Got to see lots of dolphins and felt like we were in good hands the entire trip. Our hotel wanted $700/person for 4 hours in a swimming pool, this place takes you out on a boat for 4 hours and let's you snorkel with 100's of dolphins... More

This was the best manta snorkel I've ever done. The crew ( Mike the captain, Zane the dive master, and Malia, the "snorkel princess") were professional and funny at the same time. The ride to the snorkel cove was comfortable, and smooth, even for this 74-year-old, 5 weeks after a heart attack. Malia made sure we were all having fun... More

The whole crew was great - took care of us, made us laugh, and kept the nervous divers safe. Perfect balance of fun, respect for the wildlife, education, and gentle reminders to the rare selfish photographer to sit down and get out of the way ;-}. We dove it, my mother snorkeled, and we all had a ball - 11... More

Being snorkelers, rather than divers, we booked the night manta snorkel. The price includes wet suit and snorkel gear and you need to check in at the dive shop by 4:00 before heading to the harbor slip. Also Sarah, Just Emily, and Captain Eric took us on a grand adventure. The ladies were knowledgeable, informative, and so witty that they... More
