I'm a DM and Tech Diver that scuba dives all over the world who often finds himself searching for a bit more professional dive environment, less the large snorkel/tourist crowds. Countless phone calls on Kona met with negative and very unprofessional results until we stumbled into Lisa at Honu Sports. She defines "uncomplicated and professional." Her prices were beyond fair... More

We had no prior experience with scuba. Lisa taught us the basics of dive safety and then she and Shawn took us out to do two awesome dives. We had a blast and felt we were in good hands the entire time. (Scuba diving is no joke!) Lisa also went above-and-beyond to coordinate with us somewhat last minute, which we... More

Went myself (padi certified) and with family (three uncertified) and we were all accommodated for a few dives very close to the holidays. Thanks Lisa for making sure we had a good time!

Four divers, all experienced, but one of us had not been diving for 10 years. Lisa and Shawn were happy to provide a tailored outing (a couple of us get sea sick and one of us - okay, me - has a hyperactive sympathetic nervous system response). We were in skilled hands and the most proficient diver was able to... More

It was an awesome adventure! We just had one certified diver, all others first timers. Lisa made us all feel safe and confident. She was very patient and gave everyone the time she/he needed to feel confident and safe. Shawn and Mike made both dives fun and interesting. A must do, when you visit Kona!

If you are looking for smaller dive boat experience...this is it. Lisa, the owner is fantastic. We dove with her a couple times when we were unable to make reservations with another dive company and we will definitely dive with her in the future. She is very conscietious of her divers and does a great job at pointing out interesting... More

My family recently returned to the big island and we again dove all week with Captain Lisa and crew at Honu Sports. I have been diving with Honu Sports over 10 years and it has been a pleasure without exception. She provided the equipment we needed and provided extra attention for our less experienced divers. Their boat serves well for... More

I had a very nice experience with Lisa and her team on a morning dive trip (2 Tank) in Kona. I felt from the beginning very welcome and had two lovely dives! Actually one of my two best ones I've done so far because of this dive operator! Thank you again for it!!

Awesome trip! Lisa was exceptional. She had us completely outfitted with minimal information. She expertly took us out to our dive spot and provided yummy snacks. Kelly our dive master made the dives fun and educational. The pace was perfect for the photographer or those that like to scope out all the little critters. We got lucky and saw mantas... More

Lisa runs a great dive company. When we called to book the first thing she asked us was "What do you want to see or do?" not a litany of questions like our diving history and certification status. We told her we wanted to see the lava tubes and wildlife and had our Advanced Open Water and she said no... More
