These guys took very good care of us for diving and snorkeling. We had a bit of confusion about our bookings, which they were very gracious about resolving. Dive master Steven was great, as was the whole crew on the boat. We'd dive with them again.

Kohala Divers, the shop, boat and staff were excellent. I hadn't been diving for eight years, and needed lots of guidance and support to get back down there. The staff provided the instruction, support and patience that made all the difference! They are professionals and friendly; a great dive shop.

I was certified here a long time ago, and I still dive with them. What I did find out after diving in other countries is that safety and professionalism is held to the highest standard at Kohala Divers. Everyone from the owners to the wonderful ladies at the dive shop are divers and they know their stuff. They have had... More

Been diving the Big Island for years and have found a few dive shops we really like. One of our best friends on the island is who we consider the BEST dive guide on the island, Flipper (just ask around as anyone in the dive community knows him). We went out for dives with Flipper along the Puako coast and... More

We dove Kohala Divers twice all 4 dives were exceptional from beginning to end starting with them picking up our gear at the shop. All we had to do is keep track of our mask as every thing else was done for us! I never felt hurried and enjoyed every minute we were with them. A pod of dolphins swam... More

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
