“should be 6 stars”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

we joined the crew for the night time manta ray dive and were blown away. From the check in with Kerry and Katie to the boat with Dennis, Luke, and Shaggy everything was awesome. The dive was safe and professional but the crew made it so much fun that topside was as entertaining as the actual dives. The mantas were out in mass this night and the count was close to 20 visitors within inches of both us divers and the snorklers up top. After the dives the boat continued the great service with a hot water shower, hot beverages, and homemade brownies.

this dive experience was a 6 star outing and I'd encourage everybody that is interested in diving on the big island to join Kona Diving Company for a great time.

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Our Manta Ray Diving experience was awesome. The staff was very accomodating with a few special requests, the equipment we used was top rate, the dive staff reviewed everything for us before our dive and the Mantas were truly amazing. The hot shower on the boat was really a plus, but the clincher for us was that the dive team went back to the bottom of the ocean floor to retieve our GoPro video camera that was knocked off my head during the dive. Thank you so much for everything.

What a great time! Service was impeccable; the crew was top notch, knowledgeable, and great fun! Kerry and her crew truly know how to make you feel comfortable and fall in love with diving in Kona. We would recommend this company to anyone for a great diving experience. We look forward to going back and diving again with this crew!

“Dolphin karma”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

We got lucky on our first diving trip to the big island. This shop came recommended and they did not disappoint. The aquatic life worked with us too and we had encounters with bottle nose dolphins, hammerhead sharks, and shaggy. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about the life and sites in the area. All are experienced dive masters and easily pick up on each diver's abilities and pace to set the dive at but more importantly they operate professionally from the shop to the harbor and out on the boat but make you feel welcome. Never hesitate to ask questions and if you have the time put yourself on a long range trip. The sites aren't visited everyday and the surface intervals open other opportunities for interaction. It's not a get you in, get you out, and go pick up the next group operation.

“Must-see Mantas!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Don't miss KDC while on the big island. We were on our honeymoon & booked a 3 dive pkg and added a snorkeler (my husband isn't certified yet...but after KDC, he's planning on it!). One of our dives was the manta night dive/snorkel. According to Chris, the mantas came within an inch of his mask on the snorkel tour, but distance viz was limiting by those annoying divers' bubbles ;). On the dive, the mantas glided just over your head from all directions. At least 7 large mantas and 1 friendly moray were spotted. Day diving included sites like Aquarium and Suck em Up. Thank you to Luke, Katie & Capt Mike for fun and exciting dives!
