Diving with Pacific Rim was an adventure, and thanks to owners Frank, Patrice and crew, friendly, laid back, and comfortable. Pacific Rim has always received the top rating in Doughty’s Big Island Revealed guide book. This was my first time diving with them, and the rating is well deserved. A note on the guide book’s reviews - Pacific Rim acquired... More

My scuba instructor recommended Pacific Rim Divers so my wife and I signed up for a two tank dive that included a late afternoon reef dive and a night dive with Manta Rays near Kona airport on Hawaii. The two of us were recently certified and were looking for a smaller outfit that would give us some personalized attention. To... More

Great personalized experience. Smaller boat that is set up as a dive boat first and not just for manta experience, so feels like there is more depth and breadth to what they offer. They offer a two dive or snorkel experience. We did snorkel first and then the manta dive. Owner and divers were great, really friendly and nice. Yummy... More

I felt very confortable diving with her. The experience was great. She really made it fun and easy. The whole crew was great. The more experienced divers also were... More

I have been diving with Pacific Rim Divers for many years and they are simply the BEST. On my last dive they showed me a cave with two White Tip Reef Sharks sleeping on the floor. One of them then woke up and decided to exit the cave so I gladly moved aside! Incredible!

We dove with Pacific Rim Divers for 3 fabulous days in September. They were very professional and attentive. The boat wasn't crowded which made it more enjoyable. They provided fresh water and lots of snacks including some awesome brownies. Great dive sites with lots of fish. We even dove through a lava tube! This was our first time diving in... More

I dove with patrice and the crew of Pacific Rim Divers and had a blast. They all were highly organized, nice, friendly and very fun. They had great rental gear and in good condition, and took care of their personal gear as well. Owning their own tanks always at 3000. I brought my own gear that they happily set up... More

My husband and I dive with pacific rim exclusively when we travel to Hawaii. Great new boat with plenty of space. Easy entry and exit. Professional safe operation catering to all levels of divers. They allow you to dive your tank to up to 90 minutes. Best bottom time you will find !

Patrice and Frank were like old friends from registration (the day before) through the whole experience. They offered the "full package" with a great boat, wonderful conversations, very knowledgeable about the dive areas and a great dive master. It was a great time!!!!

This outfit is fantastic! Every single person had good depth and breadth of knowledge about diving, the sites, the area and ecology, and the island overall. They only do small group dives and they are excellent at finding critters to see! Not to mention truly magnificent brownies!!!!
