My wife and I spent 4 awesome days with the crew of Big Island Divers getting our Scuba Open Water Cert. We were treated so well we took our family night manta ray snorkeling with the same company. The only downside was that one day the boat ran out of gas, an easily avoidable situation. Even as we sat on... More

Great dive shop. Dillon and Cuck were great dive masters as well as entertaining while we waited for sunset. Doing the afternoon dive as well as night dive well worth the bargain price. Even got to see a solo ray during that first dive. I lost count on the night dive; the ship said 16 manta showed up which sounds... More

Today I learned how to breath underwater, and got to explore a world I've always dreamt about exploring. Leaving port I got to see spinner dolphins playing happily off shore. Upon arrival to our first dive spot we were blessed by a humpback wale getting a breath of air before disappearing back into its underwater kingdom we were about to... More

I came all the way from Denmark with big expectations of diving in Hawaii. I must say that Big Island Divers and specially the lovely crew - Sam, Brook and Andrea - really made sure I had a trip that lived up to those expectations.
