My husband and I were in Hawaii last week, vacationing on the big island. We really wanted to scuba dive and decided to give it a try with Big Island Divers. One of the best choices we made during our trip. Our instructor (Kelley) was amazing. I was a bit nervous at first since I found it hard to adjust... More

The service we received from Big Island Divers blew the lid off our expectations. Beginning with the store staff who were very friendly and helpful as we planned out our five morning charters and two evening charters. A special shout out to Kat (sp?) for the way she clearly explained our options, spoke about the high surf advisory, and left... More

We went to Kona to swim with dolphins and to watch Humpback Whales. And Big Island Divers made our dream come true! We saw hundreds of dolphins under water and watch two dozen of whales! We got so excited and made our trip to Kona very special! Thank you Big Island Divers!

One of many outfitters providing night time manta ray adventures. The guides and assistants were very helpful and well informed. A marine biologist was also present to brief us on the rays and the various aspects of the marine life to be observed. We had 16 snorkelers on our trip that were divided between 2 floating rafts to hold onto... More

We have gone on several excursions with Big Island divers and have recommended it to relatives and friends. Over 5 years of doing business with them, they have never disappointed us. Always professional and safe, the staff at Big Island is "first rate".

My partner and I booked a two tank morning dive and a two tank manta night dive with this operator. It takes me a while to equalize, so we booked a personal dive master (additional $80 per trip) so that I could relax and go at my own pace. The highlight of the morning dive was snorkeling with dolphins during... More

Had a great time! Jess (Divemaster) and Sam (Captain) were great - professional AND funny. It was a real pleasure to dive with a crew as interested in the marine life as i am, and very knowledgeable. If i come back I'll definitely dive with them again. Thanks guys for a great day!

I was on the Big Island for a week Jan 26-Feb 1, and after doing lots of research I chose Big Island Divers as my underwater tour operator. I must say I've dove (diven?) with many top-notch operations, such as Stuart Cove in Nassau, but these guys take really good care of people. I did a snorkel with dolphins on... More
