Had a great trip with Big Island Divers. Really fond of Coreen and Flipper. Great divemasters. The manta dive with flipper was fantastic. Coreen was so good at finding us great things to see. Very professional operations. Boat was not crowded at all. Dry boxes for your stuff. They wash your gear and keep it for you if you are... More

The time spent here was a great experience in general. The dive masters and captains were funny and knowledgable people who were also very helpful and patient. As for the diving, the first dive offered a variety of corals and sea life, even a rare sighting of spinner dolphins next to us while diving. And for the night time manta... More

I booked two snorkeling trips with them in mid-March, one was for dolphins swimming, another was the evening and night snorkeling (manta ray). I had very good service on both trip and I were lucky to see plenty of dolphins and manta ray. The dolphins snorkeling started around 9am. We actually cruised a while before we found the pod, just...

We went on two dive trips with Big Island Divers this week - absolutely nothing short of perfection! The service was topnotch! On our first set of dives, we were in the capable hands of Captain Andrew and dive masters Zane and Adam. We dove with Zane. I felt totally spoiled as they set up our equipment for us and... More

This was the second manta dive for us but the first for our friends and well worth it! The black water dive was amazing, Mike Patrick and Kelly all great and very professional but entertaining.

My spouse, sister and I had a great time on the twilight/night manta snorkels. I got separated from the snorkel group during the twilight snorkel, which is fine as I am experienced and confident snorkelling on my own. Others were worried about me, though. Oops! I headed toward the boat to find out where the others had gone and the... More

We've dove 4 dives with them this week with 2 more planned. All the crews are exceptional. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, positive, conscientious, helpful, and professional. This is a great dive company with good boats and equipment. They take extra special care of our own equipment as well. Have already recommended this company to friends and will use them again...

We just want to say thank you to Kelly for helping us today find the perfect snorkeling gear and wetsuit. Big Island Divers has great customer service! They take whatever time is needed to get/fit the right gear for you and share local snorkeling and diving areas.

The staff and crew of this company were so nice and helpful especially Kelly, Zain, and Captain Patrick. They helped us every step of the way and were so kind to us that being on a boat with the same people for a long period of time wasn't that bad! We did snorkeling with manta rays and beginners scuba diving... More
