My husband has used several other diving companies in Kona in the past. He found and chose Kona Diving Company because I am new to the sport and he wanted me to have a great experience. Our experience with KDC was amazing! So much so that we did more dives than we had planned! The crew is very friendly, helpful,... More

I did 6 trips (11 dives in total) with KDC in late July this summer. I was immediately impressed by their friendliness and genuine interest in the experience that all divers had. They were eager to share their local knowledge of the dive sites (which is extensive!) as well as the marine life we were likely to encounter. I'm also... More

If mother nature was sending a message to us, it was one of perfection. Starting out seeeing turtles then onto dolphins on the way to the crowning moments of mantas! Same goes for the crew of Luke, Lindsay, and Tim. We were made to feel like family on the boat. What a great experience and a check mark next to... More

From folks in the shop to the crew on the boat, this is a fun group to go with. No 'cattle operation' here.

The best diving establishment in the world. Period. Enough said. Just the professional way they conduct themselves in a caring manner is beyond your imagination. Fresh brownies every day with plenty of drinks cold and hot and extremely knowledgably guides.

My husband and I have lived in Kona for 17 years and at one time or another dove with most the dive operators in town. KDC is easily the most professional, knowledgeable and courteous outfit on the island. A small, well organized operation that cares about giving their customers the most pleasant dive experience possible. If there is a particular... More

My wife and I dove 5 days with Kona Diving Co again. We dive Kona once a year or so. We've looked into several dive operations, and this is the only one that we would use. Comfortable group with choice of shady or sunny spots. Small groups of 3-4 divers. The divemasters know their stuff. Friendly & accommodating people.

I had a firm recommendation from a friend to use KDC when I visited the Big Island for vacation this summer; I was not disappointed! KDC are a slick and highly professional diving center that will look after your every need. They are very happy to accommodate your specific needs, for example, I always like to dive a standard Nitrox... More

This week I did 2 days of diving with the Kona Diving Company. Both dives were the Manta night dives. The catamaran they use is really impressive. It's spacious and well equipped. It even has a hot water shower, which is great after a night dive when it does cool down. Especially if you've just sat an hour on the... More

I will say this I have had an opportunity to dive around the world that is not to say I have seen it all and dove it all. But from dives off the coast of NC to the Cenote, Maya Rivera area, Bahamas, St Martin, Aruba, and Philippines just to name a few. Kona Diving Company stands at the top... More
