My boyfriend and I (certified divers; he open-water, and I advanced open-water) were staying at Jungle Jeanie's and were directed to ask at Hamanasi if we wanted to dive. We took a taxi the first morning to see the potential of going the next day. Unfortunately since we weren't guests we didn't receive any kind of warm welcome by the... More

My son and I did six dives with Dive Hamanasi over three days. Each of my two daughters did two dives--one day each. We're unanimous in the view that this is a great dive company. They limit the number of divers on the boat, they go to spectacular sites on the Southeast Reef with terrific animal life and the dives... More

Everyone was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Cdog, BigDaddy, Martin are the best! All 4 tanks were at the Southeast Reef. Equipment was like new. Boat was typical dive boat, well maintained. Safety was paramount. They only run a trip to Blue Hole when they have 8 divers to go, 2.5-3.0 hours out to the reef. They do daily runs... More

The dive staff really made us feel comfortable and made each trip a unique and fun experience. We did three two tank dive days. Each dive was different and we saw some amazing creatures!

Was told I would have to go on pre-scuba trip before they would allow to go on trip to blue hole. The trip was disorganized and chaotic. There was no respect for standard safety procedures and guide was oblivious to what anyone was doing. There were two dives and thank god I paired up with another person as shaken as... More

This shop proved themselves time and time again from the way the boats are set up to how you are treated throughout the trip from start to finish. A wonderful experience.

We were referred to Hamanasi for two reasons: 1) Jungle Salve and jungle butter (itch relief for bug bites) and 2) Scuba Diving certification. Hamansi went above and beyond for both requirements. Jungle Salve – after our first day on the beach in Hopkins, I got a ton of bites from the sand fleas. The Jungle Salve that they sell... More

We did 10 dives with them while we were there in April 2014. Dive Hamanasi is a PADI 5 star shop with friendly and efficient staff. Rental gear is available. They run a pair of... More

My son and I were new to diving, but this group made us feel very comfortable. The guys are lots of fun and have lots of character. The equipment and boats were very well maintained. They are very conscious of safety which I appreciated having a 12 year old diver with me. I have no reservations recommending Dive Hamanasi to... More
