Great shop, did all 4 open water dives with them for open water certification ! Thank you guys ! They told us about the incoming swell and advised us to move up our dives ... Without looking out for us we would not have been able to complete our certification! Thank you Scott & Oliver !

Did a three tank dive which let us go a bit farther north than usual. The dive masters were well educated and giving of information. The whole crew were locals with many being born and raised on the north Kohala coast. It's really true - it's always sunny there

I did my Advanced Open Water course with Kohala Divers and it was a great experience. Since I hadn't been diving for a couple of years I was a bit nervous before the first dive but the feeling soon vanished since everyone was so professional and nice. The diving sites were beautiful, the crew helped with all the gear and... More

We are relatively new to diving. Kohala divers had a large group but did well catering to each diver's ability. We saw sea turtles, eels, manta rays, and even a whale. The crew ( Ryan, Bill, and Steven) were also extremely helpful handling all the equipment so entering and exiting the water was easy. The briefings were also nice. Thanks... More

My husband booked us to go diving with Scott, Kelly, Captain Steve and Captain Mike so he could complete his PADI qualification. As a non diver, I tagged along to snorkel and had a great time. The guys know so much about the topography, wildlife and obviously diving. They were friendly, professional, fun and accommodating. My husband had the best... More

Kohala Divers ROCKS! I have too many good things to say about this dive shop on the Big Island to fit in this review space! You should make the drive out of Kona and see what amazing finds there are off the Kohala coast!! If you have been diving a little or a lot it doesn't matter, they will take... More

I have been diving for over 30 years and Kohala Divers gave me the best service, before, during and post dive I have ever received. They handled all my equipment, all I had to do is stand up, jump and enjoy my dive. The boat was perfect for diving and enjoying the trip to and from the sites. The sites... More
