The crew and dive masters with Kona Diving Company are incredible. From the smiling faces at their clean welcoming shop to the knowledgeable and hilarious Dive masters and boat captain they made our trip to Kona amazing. They are all very professional and safety oriented without being formal or overbearing. I will definitely dive with KDC again. We did 3 two tank morning dives and the two tank manta dive. Saw 5 mantas and it was the experience of a lifetime!
Their boat is clean and cared for and they handled our scuba equipment wonderfully. I highly recommend them!

You want to book with this team! We’ve been diving for 20 years and a company like this makes me so happy!

This was our second dive trip to Kona and it was fantastic! Kona diving company is first rate for service, friendliness and excellence in diving! Hallie and Daniel were our 2 dive masters and both did a great job leading us and finding so many little hidden creatures we would have missed without them. I asked for octopuses and Hallie found 6 in one dive (best birthday gift ever!) We saw frog fish, leaf scorpion, wrasse, puffers,box fish, turtles, so many angels, parrots, butterflies, tangs and eels. And of course the most exciting was the mantas!! The team was great at identifying the fish and explaining their habits and which were indigenous to Hawaii.

I had an unfortunate malfunction of my BCD (my own, not rental) and the team was great in helping me, they diagnosed the issue and had a rental for me as back up.

Ship captains were very helpful and knowledgeable as well. If you want a little extra fun after your night dive, go up top with JC and check out the stars and planets! He is a wealth of starry knowledge!

Thank you Kona diving company!! We will see you again soon!

Spent most of a week diving with Kona Dive Company. Their dive masters were excellent, with great knowledge of the dive sites and a wonderful presence. The shop was very helpful in scheduling and coordinating as our plans changed after no manta rays showed for the first night dive. A great group to dive with if you're in Kona!

We went diving with KDC in September 18 and what we found was an amazing team, extremely knowledgable, fun and enthusiastic about it all. All of the organisation was brilliant, we loved the boat including snacks (those delicious brownies) and drinks provided at surface intervals.
A massive thanks to Luke, Hayley and Daniel who made our diving experience truly unforgettable. Their passion, experience and knowledge about the dive sites and local marine life is outstanding.
The refresher course on day 1 proofed invaluable and we both so enjoyed the diving out there. We were stunned by the variety of corals, fish species and the great viz and water temperature out there.
We hope to come back again in the future.

We went out for one (2-tank) day-time dive and one (2-tank) night time "Manta" dive. Didn't see any Mantas. We've been Diving on Kuaui, Maui, and now the Big Island. Didn't see anything special this time. Someone said they saw a Tiger Shark on our day- time dive, but we didn't see it. The crews were pretty good. Daniel was our dive master for the day-time dive. He was really good. Took a lot of time to explain things and really helped out a lot. We'd dive with them again.
