My family recently returned to the big island and we again dove all week with Captain Lisa and crew at Honu Sports. I have been diving with Honu Sports over 10 years and it has been a pleasure without exception. She provided the equipment we needed and provided extra attention for our less experienced divers. Their boat serves well for... More

I had a very nice experience with Lisa and her team on a morning dive trip (2 Tank) in Kona. I felt from the beginning very welcome and had two lovely dives! Actually one of my two best ones I've done so far because of this dive operator! Thank you again for it!!

Awesome trip! Lisa was exceptional. She had us completely outfitted with minimal information. She expertly took us out to our dive spot and provided yummy snacks. Kelly our dive master made the dives fun and educational. The pace was perfect for the photographer or those that like to scope out all the little critters. We got lucky and saw mantas... More

Lisa runs a great dive company. When we called to book the first thing she asked us was "What do you want to see or do?" not a litany of questions like our diving history and certification status. We told her we wanted to see the lava tubes and wildlife and had our Advanced Open Water and she said no... More

It has been a really nice experience diving with the Manta Rays on this two-tank dive trip with Lisa (our boat captain) and Kelly (our dive master). The group size is only 6 people (plus the captain and the dive master) which makes it for a really private experience. I loved that! Lisa brought some water, snacks and the best... More

We found Honu at trip advisor and selected it to be our operator for scuba dive in Big Island. From the beginning, Lisa (the owner) was very sympathetic, attentive in our arrangements, She was able to attend all of our requests - a group of 5 for 2 scuba dives, 2 tanks each, in an "easy" place. Totally satisfied! The... More

Family of four including 2 snorkelers and 2 divers. We did the two-tank dive and that was absolutely great. Saw at least four different mantas at Manta Heaven. The operation is well run and straightforward. The maximum group size is 6 makes for a very small group and therefore a very personalized tour which is awesome. Lisa was Captain and... More

I've been coming to the big island specifically to dive with Lisa and Honu Sports for about ten years. I refuse to dive with anyone else! -I love the small group sizes and personable, knowledgeable crew. They take their groups to the best spots near Kona and they'll diversify your sites and experiences if you're doing more than a couple... More

I have been diving with Lisa for 13 years and she is the best out there. Her boat takes 6 divers (max) which is what we love. You always get a customized experience and never feel like you're rushed or just one of the crowd. Her dive style is true Hawaiian style... Slow and laid back. There is no stress... More

Lisa was a great captain and leader. There were many great things about her tour: 1) it's small - maximum six people - so she could give us all a lot of attention; 2) she's very knowledgeable about the area and the best places to snorkel or dive; 3) she's very concerned with the ecological impact of the tours, making...
