We recently visted Kona for a scuba diving trip. There is an awesome under water wreck of a D-18 Beechcraft tourist aircraft just off the Kona airport. We were booked with another dive company that just wanted to do the manta ray dives, and not much else. They were aware of this wreck, but did not know where it was located. (I thought if I knew of a cool wreck dive in the neighborhood, I would certainly know where it was located!)

We contacted the great folks at Big Island Divers to inquire if they were familiar with the wreck site. Of course they were, and booked a charter for us the next day. We had an awesome dive on the wreck, and awesome service from Captain Jim, Dive master Mike, and spotter Norm. The expierence was the highlight of our diving off Kona.

The Big Island Divers boats are all excellent and comfortable full service dive boats. The staff onbaord and at the shop were all professional and friendly. ( Thanks Jessie!)

When we return to Kona, we will be diving with Big Island Divers!!

Aloha from Las Vegas
