My kids and I have been diving all over the world, and have gone on dives with several different shops here on the big island. We recently spent two weeks near Kawaihae, and went on several dives with Kohala Divers. Every guide, every dive was outstanding. My younger two daughters, ages 12 and 10, completed their certification while we were... More

We just got back from a week on the Big Island and one of our must dos was to get a dive in. Kohala Divers happened to be close to our hotel and had good reviews so we went with them. I couldn't agree more with all the positive comments. Diving with them was about as hassle free as it... More

For about 15 years or more, every year when our kids, partners, and sometimes our nieces and nephew are on island, we charter a fishing boat and my husband takes them out fishing. Kawaihae is a GREAT harbor to go out of and Kohala Divers do a great job. I have personally also gone out on whale sighting. I highly... More

This place was great from start to finish. The people who answered my emails, and ran the shop were nice and prompt. Captain Steven and Flipper commandeered an unforgetable day of diving on the North Shore. Flipper was a knowledgeable and adventurous guide, who's enthusiasm and passion for the sport is infectious. The sites are dazzling and the boat was... More

My son is a 14 year old certified diver. Many of the other shops would not take him unless an adult joined. Well the Daddy had to take the younger son to Kohala zip lining so I needed help. Kohala divers treated my son like ohana ( family in Hawaii). He had a great dive and a great time. We... More

My husband and I have dived with these fine people on many occasions. Everyone at Kohala Divers is friendly and knowledgable, and we always enjoy the truly amazing dive spots they are lucky enough to have virtually at their front door. This is the dive shop to which I compare all others. Seriously, what are you waiting for? Get out... More

I’ve been diving in Kona 8 times. I love it. However, on my latest trip, my friend and I checked out up North because I’d heard the topography and animal life was much different and not to miss. Kohala Divers were accommodating to our last-minute request to dive with them for one of our days in Kona (we had already... More

My luck was that, since my last dive was eight years ago, I had a personal divemaster with me. Just two other divers were there. I had a great time, great crew (thank you Captain Bill for getting us back in one piece .... ) and a lot of knowledge! I learned alot about sealife in Hawaii. Too bad I... More

We booked a fishing trip with Kohala Divers and had a fantastic day! Greg, the owner, and Bob took us out for a half day trip on their beautiful boat with great expectations. The boat is clean and outfitted with the best equipment and refreshments. The day started out slow but soon got busy as we hooked three Ono and... More
