Kona Honu Divers is locally owned and operated. From the moment you step into the shop or prepare to board our boat, you become part of our "ohana" or family. Our boat is safe and comfortable. Our dives are guided by knowledgeable instructors who brief you on what to expect to see before you enter the water. Encounters with dolphin, turtles, and manta rays are common in the placid Kona waters.

The staff and boat were great but there were no mantas see. We looked at the underwater fish, but nothing more.

Nice boat, modern scuba equipment in excellent condition, friendly and knowledgeable personnel. We did the 2 tank manta dive and were impressed with the operation. The mantas did not show that night, but we saw other wonderful sea creatures.

My 16 year old daughter and I took the manta ray snorkeling tour and loved it. The crew, Frank, Bob and Kevin, were friendly and informative. Having never snorkeled at night I wasn't quite sure how safe I would feel in the water after dark but I never felt uncomfortable. During the night portion of the trip you hold onto... More

We went with Kona Honu Divers for two 2 tank dives. We had a little trepidation that with a somewhat larger boat, the divers would be running into each other. We were very pleasantly surprised that we split into very manageable groups (only 2 of us for one of the days and with 5 total for the other). The dive... More

We did the manta ray snorkel tour and it was excellent! Friendly, conscientious, and informative captain and crew! Once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with these beautiful (and massive!) creatures as they gracefully glide and belly-roll inches from you. Highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to the Big Island, you will not regret it!

Kona Honu Divers were very pleasant. Even though we called the day before to check on availability due to a last minute cancellation in plans, they were very pleasant and were able to accomodate us. They arranged for someone to pick us up directly where the cruise ship dropped us off and drove us back after. We saw a variety... More

From Virginia in the office to both cap Tom's, and the DM's. I thought fantastic, Nobody pestered me, they saw I'm a diver, you know diver, not vac diver but a diver, & they didn't keep on a tight rein. I had to stay with the group, which is fine, but if I lagged because of video, they didn't chase... More

As a young couple, I was diving and my girlfriend was snorkeling. Diving experience: The dive team was great. You'll dive down to 35 feet, 10ish meters, then you sit down and enjoy the show for 65 minutes. We were lucky and 7 manta were swimming in front of us. Snorkeling experience: a little bit too crowded, too many people,... More

Overcrowded dive spot with so many people and boats. BUT the night dive was by far super magical and worth all the negatives, because Mother Nature is a rock star. A true show, just take a seat folks relax and let nature blow your mind with these beautiful wild creatures. Dive one is more of a feel of levels and... More
