I am a very new diver and getting my open water certifications here was the best water experience of my life! Our dive instructor, Terri, was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were diving and always pointed out the different kinds of fish, and wrote it down on a slate so we knew what we were looking at. Additionally she made me feel very comfortable when doing the skills and explorations and I knew I was in good hands. During our surface interval we came across a whale shark and snorkeled with it for quite some time. The captain was able to find the whale shark and get within feet of it as it swam by. That's when we jumped in. That was amazing all by itself and combined with the amazing first dive experience we had, it just made everything once in a lifetime. Everyone was very knowledgeable, understanding, and safe. I can't imagine someone not enjoying the experience. I whole heartedly recommend this dive shop to everyone interested. The whole experience made me much more excited about future diving than I was before. Thank you Kona Honu Divers for the amazing experience!
