Cannot say enough great things about this company! Knowledgeable, experienced, professional, fun and so nice! I did a total of six dives. Manta Ray dive was simply magical. You can't go wrong with this company!

I did the two tank night manta dive with my teenage children - both novice divers and my younger 15yo nervous about the night dive. Our dive master Luke was just terrific in explaining everything really clearly and paying special attention to the less confident ( and experienced) divers. Good day dive and then a really awesome night dive with... More

My husband and I are newly PADI certified divers and needed a refresher course. I contacted this company via email for a private refresher course. They responded promptly on all my emails. I made reservation for one day of refresher and one day of group diving. Due to uncertain December weather, we had to make changes to our reservation for... More

Came here with my mom to do the PADI open water course. The first day was pool day and unfortunately, my mom just wasn't feeling comfortable. She was disappointed and worried she wouldn't get to do the open water dives and see the fish, but Katie, our instructor, was super helpful and encouraging. She was able to set it up... More

I said last year that if I returned to Kona I would dive with the Kona Diving Company again and we did. This time we stayed longer and dove more. Again we had a great time. The folks there are very accommodating and it seems as if our wish was their command. My wife gets really cold when she dives,... More

We have dived with the Kona Dive company for several years. They continue to be a top notch operation and I am still impressed with their attention to individual needs. They recognize when divers are a little nervous and will provide extra supervision and reassurance. Attention to small things is shown by the way the shoes are laid out after... More

Came to kona for the manta night dive. The dive guide luke is wonderful and very funny. I had 4 nights with him and was still laughing along! He pointed out lots of things on the afternoon dive and took gopro footage of me looking at the mantas rather than me getting everyone else looking at them. Mike the boat... More

Awesome dive shop! My family did a 5 day dive package and my husband and I joined for the night Manta Dive. Awesome dive! Dive masters were very knowledgable and gave great information about the Manta's before the dive. We were the last outfitter in the water, which meant the last ones out. Got quite the show after the other... More

The Kona Diving Company is a First-Class operation all the way! They couldn't have been more accommodating! I was only in Kona for one day as I was sailing on NCL's Pride of America. Most diving companies don't want to deal with the hassle of cruise ship guests but the Kona Diving Company was fabulous. They provided clear instructions on... More
