Whether you are advanced or a new scuba diver, the Manta Dive with Big Island Divers is a MUST! We did strike gold with THIRTY FOUR mantas swooping over our heads. Dive Master Sarah, Skipper Jonathon and snorkel master Emily were great fun and very professional. They set up your gear, walk you through the technicalities of the dive (there... More

This is my favorite dive company on the big island. The long range trips are great, sharks and rays every day! This trip included: 12' Great Hammerhead Shark, white tip sharks, grey sharks, black tip sharks, and a nice eagle ray. Thank you for your kind service, and great personalities. You have my vote!

My husband and I had an absolutely AWESOME time doing the dolphin snorkel tour!!! The crew were all super friendly and knowledgeable. Seeing the dolphins up close, in the wild, was an amazing experience that we will never forget. I liked that the crew gave us some information about the dolphins and informed us on how to swim respectfully with... More

I come to the islands usually twice a year specifically to go diving. Although I usually spend most my time in Maui I do occasionally come to the Big Island. In the last two years I dove with seven different dive shops. As someone who has several hundred dives under their weight belt ( actually their weights are integrated-another plus)... More

This was such a great experience. Everyone on board were very informative and helpful. Jess was out tour guide and she was great. We saw about 5 Mantas during the day, some dolphins and about 20 at night. If you haven't done this tour you are missing out!

I travel for a living, see a lot of ads for attractions and excursions but nothing has exceeded my expectations like the Snorkel Manta Ray Dive with Big Island Divers.... Green Certified for these amazing creatures, (most are not) informative, fun and completely thorough. This is your best group for a great experience.

I did 6 dives over 2 days with this team and the service was excellent. First day with Capt Don, Patrick, Kristen and Sarah was an excellent experience. I appreciated that they took to care switch our first dive site in the name of safety (very cool guys). Morning of day 2 was with Capt Don, Malia, Kristin and Corrine.... More

The team at Big Island Divers (BID) just competed a three-day PADI cert course for me and my son (13). I was nervous that my son couldn't do the course (we did extensive online training before the three days of in-person training) but the BID put us at ease, with careful, patient instruction. The instructors were superb, and full of... More

CONS: Why do I always pick expensive hobbies? Diving with Big Island Divers is pricey. PROS: Big Island Divers is worth it. Their boat crews are friendly and committed to service. My wife and I sensed NO attitudes, no "over it" detachment we've seen with other operations. It's obvious that these crews are as addicted to diving and the ocean... More

We dove with Big Island Divers during a recent Family trip to Hawaii. My son and I completed our Advanced Open Water course with them. Our instructors, Christine and Zain were excellent. They were thorough and patient (esp with my 13 yr old). The Boat Captains did a fabulous job of picking dive sites that matched the experience and interests... More
