Had a lovely experience with a very good captain on their bigger boat (Captain Andrew). Very friendly staff and the diving was excellent, especially the Mantas on the afternoon dive. The night manta dive does feel like you're in an aquarium, but still worth doing as a one-off. Probably more for experienced divers as most dive masters were not particularly... More

My husband and I got married on the west side of the island this past September, many friends and family were able to come out for the wedding. For one of our activities, many of our family members and my husband and I decided to do the manta ray snorkel, we were all blown away by our experience. My husband... More

Highly recommend! excellent team, perfect crew, incredible service! Excellent all round. Best place to go diving on the island! We also did the Manta-ray night dive. A must-have for every diver out there! Was one of my best dives ever! After the spectacular Manta-ray dive we even got a hot chocolate to drink! Ruben&Carmen

My husband and I did the day dive/snorkel and manta night dive on the 24th. The dive masters and Erik the captain were exceptionally nice and enthusiastic about our experience. I was the only snorkeler so Erik was kind enough to take me out and show me some incredible sights. We even saw a manta! The night dive with the... More

Fantastic 2 tank dive off coast on Big Island. The coral was really beautiful, lots of reef fish, eels etc. We were able to snorkel with a pod of dolphins where there were two baby dolphins. A couple of manta rays swam by and also we saw a resting white tipped reef shark. The crew were really good and helpful... More

We did 5 days of diving including a 2 tank twilight/night dive with the Mantas. Our time in Kona was during a slower time, so was nice to not be on crowded boats. The crew were great and very catering to the fact that my friend and I were instructors. Quite professional, great dive locations providing a good variety of... More

We had a fantastic day diving with Big Island Divers ! We saw 2 Manta Rays, a White-tip Shark and an octopus ! And while snorkeling during our surface interval, we saw scores of dolphins passing by, even young ones - and the 3 more Mantas cruised by ! The crew included captain Andrew and 2 dive guides, Corinne and... More

My Hubby and I did the twilight/Night Dive near the Sheraton. THIS IS AN AMAZING DIVE, and one you should do if at all possible! Our dive master was Nick, and Alyssa was in charge of the snorkelers and our Manta Ray education - which made the experience all the better. There were 6 divers and 6 snorkelers on our... More

Excellent all round. I did the snorkel with my mum who was a bit hesitant but they were very encouraging and supportive. On board we had Erik (the Captain), Lori (snorkelling) and Malia (diving). They were all knowledgable, friendly and fun and I cant say enough good things about them and the experience. We were one of the last boats... More

We were on the Bid Island last week and decided to do the sunset and manta night dive with Big Island Divers. I had been nervous because it had been several years since my last dive. Well I am SO happy I did not chicken out! The crew were all awesome. We had Tara, Mikey B, and Eric driving the... More
