Kona Honu is a great company. My family and I have 2 divers and 2 snorkelers. The diving is top notch! Their dive masters really take care of the divers. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Small dive groups. Max of 6 divers per dive master or you can get a private dive master for additional $100. We opted for the private dive master, which was great! Sandy took my husband and daughter to locations at Shark Alley and Great Arch that the other groups didn’t go. They swam through tunnels which my daughter loved. Sandy directed them to great spots. They saw a turtle, several eels, puffer fish among other marine life. Sherry was a second dive master who was with them. Also super nice and experienced. My husband and daughter felt well taken care of. On their second dive day, they had Sam as their dive master. Also really nice. One thing we would’ve liked to change is on our second excursion, there was a VERY STRONG current. I’m not sure if the conditions changed suddenly but a different location without current would’ve been preferred. The current freaked out a couple of divers.
The boat is your basic dive boat. Nothing luxurious but gets the job done. They provide a nice array of snacks, the best of which is the best tasting pineapple ever!! There’s also drinking water on board.
Kona Honu has all the equipment available and ready for divers. You literally can come with just your swim suit on. We brought our own snorkel and masks. We did a total of 3 excursions with Kona Honu. 2 morning dives + 1 manta ray dive. My daughter can’t stop talking about the amazing Manta Rays! They are huge, beautiful and graceful!
Please note that their excursions are centered around the divers, NOT the snorkelers. So snorkelers are left to ourselves. It’s pretty easy to find interesting marine life in the larger reefs, but there’s no guide for the snorkelers.
Bottom line, great outfit. Takes care of divers well. Easy going. Even rinsed my personal wetsuit for me.
