I have been on a couple of dive trips with Kohala Divers. My most recent was with "Flipper" (the Dive Master" and Captain Bill in August 2016. We went to a couple of sites just north of Kawaihai harbor. On the way out Captain Bill spied some dolphins and skillfully maneuvered the boat so that they could safely surf on... More

Did 2 dive trips with Kohala. One was a twilight/night dive with Flipper and Tony, the other was a two tank morning dive with Rebecca and Chad. Both times Captain Bill did a great job with the boat and gear. Had a good mix of people, experience and skills, and as a new diver, I found the whole experience wonderful,... More

Diving at Kohala Divers was possibly the best diving experience I have ever had! The dive masters, as well as the other staff were incredibly kind, professional, and incredibly experienced. Coming into the dive, I was/am a 14 year-old, that was not occupied by a superior adult. Chad and other dive masters made me feel incredibly safe, while still providing... More

Koala divers impressed me as one as the best dive operators I have experienced in my life. I am an experienced diver with many dives and have dove around the word However, dive masters and captain manage to care for different kinds of divers with different background and expectations. I had a pleasant and rewarding experience with them. The dive... More

Really made me feel at ease. Checked our gear before boarding the boat, found a problem and fixed it for me. They saved the day. After 40 years of diving, this was one of the most comfortable dives. Well worth driving a few miles north for the cleaner and clearer water.

A few friends and I took a diving certification course with Kohala, so we spent 3 intensive days with various members of the crew. They were all easygoing, friendly, but also attentive to safey. We had a great time and felt like our training was complete. We were able to get to some very nice sites in a short time... More

I've been diving with Kohala Divers many times. They're always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The dive sites near Kawaihae Harbor are definitely the best on the Big Island. I can't get enough!

Kohala Divers staff was very kwowledgeable, friendly, and fun. They did a great job of communicating - in the pre-vacation question/booking process, in the shop on dive days, and on the boat. Divemasters were very good at finding and pointing out interesting wildlife. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Kohala Divers. The staff and crew are so friendly and helpful. They make you feel right at home. I was very impressed with captain Bill. He has mad skills. Thank you for giving us a day we will never forget.

We were staying on the Kohala coast and picked Kohala to dive with. We had previously dove with DM Flipper so I knew these guys would be good. Had just a wonderful experience. I had my 12 year old son diving with me and they were so good to him. Our captain, Bill, is just a very nice guy, and... More
