Doing a night snorkel with Mantas has been a dream of mine for a long time, so naturally I was super excited to see the amazing reviews and experiences of others when researching Big Island Divers. I had been told by a number of other people that had done this to go early on your trip because if you don't... More

This dive is awesome. Jenna, Becca, and Andrew know what they are doing. The Manta's are awesome. They come so close up to you. It is a sight to see, unlike any snorkel that you have ever done. They are all well prepared. It was so much fun. I would highly recommend it!!!

Diving again with BID was everything we remembered. (First review in 2013.) Once again their staff/crews made us feel welcome and like we were diving with old friends. Their boats are never over crowded, captain and dive masters always trying to find dive sites we'd not yet visited, always safe and efficient... the superlatives would just go on and on.... More

We did the snorkel tour with the manta ray, it was one of our two best activity in big island (and in fact in Hawaii!!!). This experience is just coming from a dream, these animals who fly in the water are majestic! Big Island divers is a company who hire a passionate and knowledgeable staff. They were very nice and...

I had an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience with Big Island Divers. It was absolutely one of the highlights of my Hawaii trip. I went diving and felt that on my night I must have seen a lot more than the snorkellers, but everyone snorkelling came back happy as well. We also saw a Monk Seal in the bay, which was lovely....

We had a wonderful experience snorkelling with manta rays off the coast of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Big Island Divers are knowledgeable, well-organized, and very concerned with manta ray conservation. All divers and snorkelers are strictly advised not to touch these magnificent animals. Cones of light from below (divers) and above (rafts of snorkelers) attract large schools of fish as well as...

Justin and Jenna were our guides for the trip and were great! The boat ride is about 20 mins to the bay near the Sheraton hotel, where you arrive right before sunset. We received an introduction to manta rays from Jenna and it was cool to see that she knew the names of the mantas we got to see. We... More

If you've never dived or snorkel with manta rays, don't miss the unique opportunity to do so when you visit the Big Island. We went with Big Island Divers and three out of the four of us really enjoyed the trip. The one person (my teenage son) got so seasick that he was able to be in the water only... More

I have been diving for over 5 years on the east coast and Caribbean and I have never been diving in Hawaii. Big Island Divers put all my fears to rest and made my dives an absolutely incredible experience. The Manta Ray night dive was completely amazing and something i will never forget.
