Kamuela Scuba Diving

We will be staying at the Fairmont Orchid in early March and would like to do a couple of dive trips. The Fairmont is about 25 miles north of Kona so does anyone know about the dive shops or operations closer to the hotel? None of our local divers seem to have much experience in the Big Island.

Yes there are......forget the names. there is a fantastiic exposed reef off Puoko.. which can only go with the winds are slack.

north Kohala has real ripping winds.... gales.

it will be about 15 mile drive north

However, the water, the vis and the coral are the best south of the airport. South of Keauhou the best..... VIZ at 75 to 90 at the shore 100 to 180 on boat dives

Honu Divers and Dive Makai... are about 17 miles south of you. I consider them the best.
