The booking was easy, the boats well equipped and maintained, and the dive crews are THE BEST! Dive trip one a regular two tank morning trip included an extra special surface interval with... More

Several members of our family took this awesome trip on May 14th! Our crew was amazing! Andrew, Nick & Dylan and a few others catered to our needs, questions and were extra fun to be with! We learned awesome facts about Manta Rays as well as snorkeling in the water with them. It was a very peaceful experience being in... More

This was the best tour of our trip. We did a helicopter tour (not good) and a horseback tour in Waipi'o valley which was pretty good, but this tour was the best. The guides are awesome! Nice, down to earth and very helpful. I did the explorer scuba dive and Sarah was my dive master. I had a lot of... More

Big land diving crew Captain Sam, Katrina and Ashleigh we're informative, environmentally considerate and couldn't do enough for us to make our... More

Had a great time with this company. We did 2 tours; the manta snorkel and the morning dolphin snorkel. Both were amazing experiences in themselves but made even better by the staff at big island divers. We had Mike, will, Kat, zane and Thor. All were funny and very friendly. For the dolphins we had Sam and Chad. For the... More

My wife and I did the twilight/manta dive and had an amazing time! Our captain was Patrick and dive masters were Chris, Katrina, and Dylan. They were so friendly and knowledgeable of the area and very attentive. The dives themselves were awesome. The night manta dive is a one of a kind experience! We highly recommend this dive company!

My husband and I did the manta ray and twilight dive trip. Our crew consisted of Sam, Ashley, and Sarah. Sarah was our dive master. The whole crew was very professional and fun. They made jokes and made us excited. Sarah was very helpful in keeping us organized and showing us underwater sights. I'm not the strongest diver but the... More

Dove 6 times with another dive company; they arranged for a 2-tank twighlight and Manta Dive for me and husband with Big Island Divers. It was a great experience! Boat Captain Colin and Dive Guide Patrick made the experience safe, fun, amazing. The dive was relaxing, we learned about the Manta's, and spent 45 minutes with them in the water.... More

We booked the dolphin snorkel with big island divers and just finished the trip. We cannot say enough about how amazing big island divers is and how great our trip was. We had Sam, Chad, and Jonathan as our staff leaders and all were incredible. We are advanced swimmers and also recreational divers so we were worried that, like our... More
