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 manta ray dive included a dive before the sun went down to get familiar with the area and then bright lights were used to attract and view the mantas feeding on the plankton. The day dive was 2 different locations with some great... More

I had an amazing "Introductory Discover Scuba" experience. Our guide/trainer Nicko was very good with explaining how its going to be, and eased us into it. Definitely recommend!!

Kona Honu Divers is great! Everything about my diving experience with them was top notch. The meeting time and location were easy - not to early - easy to find - lots of parking. They have a shaded area where you wait for them to prep the boat. Once on the boat it is spacious and clean. They had plenty... More

We had a great trip! Divers were broken into small groups, and guides were very good. Snorkel ears had their own guide...very well organized!

Great company. I went on three separate dives with Kona Honu, the morning two tank, manta, and black water. The DIs I went with were John, Kevin, and Jeff. All were great and brought something different to the table for each of their dives. My mom had a great time snorkeling with Sandy. Overall this is a great company. I... More

Really impressed with how well managed the manta dive was! I was expecting a total circus and they managed it great, ensured divers understood how to behave, was just really well done. Crew was excellent.
