Hi, did a two-tank shore dive at Leleiwi Beach Park with Mark from the UK. Great experience as we saw a family of sea turtles: a very large female and the juveniles frolicking about. Mark was consummate professional - kind yet gave helpful advice when...More

Our instructor was very professional and patient. We went to a beautiful beach nearby. As beginners, we didn't go too deep into the water. but you can see lots of fish and sea turtles. We were under the water for about 30 minutes.

I took two bottles dives with a refresher, Tom was very nice, provided valuable refresher and took us for great dives to the nearby coast. For much less than in Kona, I got all I expected and more.

Pretty bad choice for shore dives, very plain reef. Inexperienced divers made the whole group surface early and swim back to the shore from very far away. Second dive canceled, refund promised, but never done, they just ignore your calls and emails. The dive guide...More

Had a great day snorkeling with an excellent guide! Saw some turtles up close and a beautiful reef. Our guide made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. This was our favorite activity in Hilo.

Hilo Ocean Adventures provided a friendly, informative and supportive scuba experience. My only issue was with the fit of the flippers, which fell off during the dive. So ensure that the fit is OK before the dive. Otherwise a great time in the water.
