BI Divers offers a friendly, knowledgeable, experienced crew on all of their various dive opportunities here in Kona. Great working gear (if you need to rent), dependable boats and crew, and excellent service! We live in Kona and have many dive boats to choose from and we do all of our diving with BID. Our BID club offers great boat... More

Always a pleasure diving with these people. Good dives, nice boats, nice people. A little more food would be good....banana nut bread, pizza, brownies, but we'll dive with them again regardless. Megan even offered to let me cannibalize her reg for the 2nd stage diaphragm...now THAT's the best sort of crew ever. Dan / Kathy

Even we didn't see any Mantas on the first night- we booked another diving for the day after. We got 50% off for the next diving day. Then we've seen 16 Mantas. The food in between the dives was awesome. Very nice, gentle friendly stuff/team. I would certainly come back !!!

My girlfriend and I went on the twilight dive and manta ray dive. She snorkels and I dive. From the minute we walked into the shop you could tell this was a top notch operation. We were fitted for equipment which fit perfectly. All equipment was clean and well maintained. We had a mix of snorkelers and divers. Jess took... More

Highly recommend these guys for manta ray snorkel tours. And any gear you may need. They were super knowledgeable, attentive and competent. If its you've never done the manta ray snorkel - and wonder if its worth it IT IS x10. Definitely a memorable life experience.

We were in Hawaii last week and went with Big Island Divers to go swimming with dolphins one day and snorkling with the manta rays at night. We were lucky to have Chris as our captain on both trips. He really went the extra distance to make sure we had the best time ever. For the manta ray dive, we... More

My wife and I traveled to the Big Island for our 5th Anniversary, and we chose Big Island Divers for the Nighttime Manta Ray Snorkel Tour. We had an incredible time on our tour with our tour guide, Lori (maybe Laurie, not sure how she spelled it) and our Captain, Mike. My wife and I had purchased our own snorkel... More

We had a wonderful twilight snorkel and night manta snorkel. The crew were so fun and funny. But the crew were also very educated on the marine life and ocean. Our captain even stopped for us to enjoy some spinner dolphins in the distance. It was amazing! We sadly did not see any Mantas that night but the crew promised... More

The first 2 dives (29 Aug) were the Manta Ray and Back Water dives. I don't request DMs but I would request Malia as she was one of the best DMs I have gone with. The boat captain Mike was just as nice and more accommodating and interactive than any other captain I have dove with. Alissa, while I didn't... More
