Overview
More
Kona Honu Divers is locally owned and operated. From the moment you step into the shop or prepare to board our boat, you become part of our "ohana" or family. Our boat is safe and comfortable. Our dives are guided by knowledgeable instructors who brief you on what to expect to see before you enter the water. Encounters with dolphin, turtles, and manta rays are common in the placid Kona waters.

Captain and crew were helpful and put us on the right spot to see more than we expected. They easily accommodated our large party of 9 snorkelers. Would highly recommend Kona Honu Divers!

Our group was rented faulty gear, which ruined our dive day. The staff did not even apologize for giving us two BCDs with holes in them, which could have been a huge safety hazard - they were rude and combative. I have dove all over...More
