I did the manta night snorkel (with a couple divers in my party) and it was exhilarating to say the least. 16 mantas made an appearance! The mantas come in extremely close to divers and snorkelers alike. It's an amazing experience that should not be missed. Our crew consisted of Chris, Zane, and Lori. Jess and Sarah were in the...

We went on the Friday night Manta Ray and Black Water Dive. If asked to describe the experience in one word: Incredible! Although young, our dive master Malia was very knowledgable about the dive sites and really knew how raise the spirits of our group (who were nervous for the deep water dive... not knowing what to expect!)! We checked... More

Went diving with Big Island Divers on a two tank morning dive. Great dives, dive masters made sure we had a good time. Staff at the shop are super helpful. Had more dives planned but they got canceled due to the hurricane. Will use them again.

We recently dove with Big Island Divers because they offered dives we have never done before. Their Fire Dive was one of the most exhilarating night dives ever. Being a fairly new type of dive, we were thrilled to be able to experience this! Using a yellow lens over our masks and a blue light, we saw coral (and some... More

I was thinking as I was writing this I should have written down the names of the staff on our diveboat, because they were truly exceptional! My husband and I went on the Manta Ray sunset and night dive. We were very pleased with the dive operation and boat crew (I believe Jess was our divemaster, who was TOP NOTCH)!... More

The biggest reason we went to the big island was to dive with the manta rays... big island divers did a great job! Everyone we met was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We did the twilight dive/manta night dive with divemaster Zane - who was fabulous! Laid back but knew his job, did a great briefing, took the dive slow,... More

We went on the Manta Ray sunset and night dive and had a lot of fun. Captain Chris and dive master Tara were very helpful throughout the entire trip. All the gear provided was sized properly and we had no issues meeting the boat at the harbor. They were very accommodating and patient with us as it was my first... More

Big Island Divers was able to squeeze my group of 3 at the very last minute for a night snorkeling tour with Manta Rays. We ran late for the 5pm check in and a staff member called us to check if we on our way. They patiently waited for my group to arrive and helped us set up with a... More
