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.

Went to this location in Kona for some last minute equipment (goggles). They were especially friendly and not pushy at all. The even gave me some snorkel tips and conditions the goggles before I went out.

On our dives there was a videographer and you could purchase an edited copy of your dives. Is that what you meant?
