I recently saw a sticker at a dive shop that read 'SCUBA snob.' That's me. I'm very particular about how the crew operates a charter, especially from the safety point of view. When I enter the water and turn around to give the 'OK' sign, I expect a crew member to see that and acknowledge it. For charters into sites... More

Kohala divers took care of all the details. They even booked us with a different partner dive shop when we wanted a dive they don't offer! Their gear was in great shape and the places they took us to were not over-run with other divers.

My daughter wanted to try scuba but was apprehensive. Rebecca and Kelleen couldn't have been more perfect. They made the day fun and safe for all. My daughter is ready for more thanks to the great experience they provided.

Great introduction to scuba! Time in the pool with basic instruction followed by a boat dive. Instructor was very careful with young student who initially had trouble clearing his ears.

During our previous trips we used dive shops in the Kona area. Kohala Divers is situated on the northwest side of the Big Island. It's location in Kawaihae... More

From the owner - on the boat - to the Captain and crew, a first class dive every time. Crystal clear water - you are north of Kona and always have clear skies with no VOG from the volcano and over Kona. Turtles, rays., octopus, eels, col stuff....we dive with them every year

We had a fantastic experience diving with Kohala Divers! My son and I completed dives at 4 sites off the Kohala coast of the big island. They were all special and offered unique sea life, coral and very diverse lava formations. The dive masters and captain of the boat were experts of the area and helped make the experience one...
