A lot of people had told me to do this but to me it did not seem that interesting, boy was I wrong. The huge Mantas coming inches away from your body (sometimes hitting it) was amazing.

My wife brought me to the Big Island for my 50th birthday and we planned three tours in the 10 days we were here. The manta ray night dive was at the top of my bucket list and Torpedo Tours did not disappoint. It was a very easy-going and relaxed tour with excellent results. This is not a cattle boat... More

Mike, Sam, Chris, and Aaron were an awesome captain and crew, along with Mike's adorable dog Scout. The dives were incredible, we did 5 total including a night dive (which was breathtaking). We saw something new every dive, and never felt uncomfortable at any point under water or on the boat. Everyone on the ship and in the water made... More

Mahalo! We enjoyed sharing our passion for diving with you and hope to see you again. This last week has been amazing! Whale season is peaking now and even when the underwater action is slow we can enjoy our local ceatations singing their love songs. We're obviously spoiled when we get to see dolphins and manta rays every day. Best... More

Thank you Mike, Nikki, Sam, Aaron, and Chris for making our first dives so memorable! It was my families first time diving in the ocean and there was no other company I would have rather been with. Mike and his crew were professional, helpful, and fun to hang out with while we were driving around on the boat. He also... More

Aloha! My husband and I recently spent a week in Kona. The absolute highlight of our vacation was scuba diving with Mike and his crew at Torpedo Tours. His boat is well stocked with scuba gear, snacks and drinks. We dove three days for a total of five dives. Each destination brought different variety of sea life and thrills. We... More

I had a great time diving with Mike and his crew. It was my first time diving and Mike was a great teacher. The whole process was very safe and I felt very comfortable. We went on 2 dives and saw all sort of interesting sea life on both. It was a very fun day at a great price.

The booking process was simple. We were able to switch to texting as I was booking night prior. Easy directions and meeting spot. The guys were great hosts and fun to get to know.

We did two dives in the morning, and another at night with the manta rays. We saw fantastic things on each dive. Mike and Nikki make the effort to provide a safe and fun diving experience. Their knowledge of the area and its animals means they can put you exactly where you need to be.

Best diving experiences ever! We're all certified scuba divers and I can honestly say that Mike and Nikki have the best company on the Big Island!
