An amazing experience with the crew. They were very personable and easy to go with. They don't babysit sit you nor constantly check on you, which is great! You're certified, you know what you're doing, if you have a problem, let them know otherwise they don't really ask. They guide you around and may point out the cool things, but... More

Had a great trip with these folks to see manta rays up close and personal. Professionalism and funny make a terrific mix. Nine rays total on our trip, four at one time under our board. We snorkeled but a diver in our group saw a monk seal, too. Not a solitary experience, but the scene with lights and divers and... More

We were very disappointed to receive a call the day before our dolphin snorkel that our tour was cancelled - they said they didn't have enough people. Yes, this is a disclaimer on the receipt I received. However, when I made the registration, she did say they were running that day. Also, to receive a call the day before your... More

Crew was very helpful and did a great job facilitating a memorable trip when other dive shops had to cancel trips due to heavy southerly swells. They had their act together and got us to sheltered area to give us some excellent dives. We are beginners but it was a memorable experience.

The two tank manta dive was epic!!! Katrina, Emily, and Lex were some of the best crew I've ever done a dive with! They were funny, enthusiastic, energetic, and they really made this once in a life time experience a million times better. They totally knew their stuff and were eager to share their knowledge. It was amazing to see... More

This was fantastic, I was a little scared at first with snorkeling at night, but it was one of my favorite snorkel trips. The people running this were fantastic, very friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this as a family experience, I wish I would have had my grandsons with me, they would have loved it. They referred to... More

This company was awesome - I emailed them days before leaving before my trip to ask about getting PADI certified, and they answered all my questions thoroughly. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to get certified, but I signed up for the night manta snorkel and discovery scuba lessons - both were amazing experiences. I was fitted quickly at the...

Really enjoyed the professionalism of the staff and crew. Good gear and very organized. Leao, who also answers to Keith, was awesome! Very knowledgeable and entertaining!! He kept everyone encouraged and excited to be in the water waiting for those gentle Giants!! Great trip, but please remember to take your Dramamine prior to leaving...just in case.

We dove with Big Island Divers during our stay in July for 4 days and a total of 12 dives. We also did the manta dive (twice! yes it is that good!) and the black water dive. The diving was beautiful and our crews ( Zane, Emily, Lex, Tara, Scott and Mikey) always made sure we were having a good... More
