I did the night manta ray snorkel and my husband did the one tank dive. We liked that we were able to still go in the boat together. I dive as well, but I am pregnant so this was my only option. I did my research and this looked like one of the best companies. It IS hands down THE... More

My husband and I dove with Luke, Alex, and Paul. They all were awesome. Luke was our dive master and went out of his way to make sure our dive was smooth and easy. We saw two mantas the night we dove, and one of them put on a fantastic show for us! This is one of the top dives... More

My husband and I are at the airport heading home and are already reminiscing about what an amazing time we had with KDC. Small dive groups, friendly and patient staff, quality rental gear. Special thanks to Kari, Luke, Captains Mike and Jeff, Maxine and Hailey. You all made us feel so welcome, like old friends. We have been diving for... More

We had two great, long morning dives with this crew and their small boat, which accomodates about 12 divers at a time. David, our divemaster, was knowledgeable and friendly, and customized the experience to our skill level (~15 dives). We only wish the weather was more cooperative so that we could have gone out again! A very nice experience.

We did a morning 2-tank and a night Manta ray 2-tank dive with Kona Diving Company in February. They were absolutely phenomenal! Well-organized, professional, educational, hospitable, and an absolute blast to be around. We were supposed to dive with them another morning but I was having ear issues due to a previous cold. Kona Diving Company went above and beyond... More

I did 6 dives, 4 pm and 2 am dives with KDC. They're a phenomenal company, staff is safe, friendly and helpful. The dives were awesome. It was my first manta night experience and it was very amazing. The instructors/DM's I had were all great and did thorough dive briefings. I was solo traveling which wasn't an issue. They're very... More

The Highlight of our trip. I Agree with all the reviews that this company is professional, organized, well run and consistent. The crew are Knowledgeable and excellent st finding and identifying fish. Small groups of just 4-6 were matched based on skill level with a single dive master. Everyone was able to dive their full tank. As a novice diver... More

We looked for a dive crew that was personable, safe, and fun. We got it! This crew is fantastic! We had 5 days of 2-4 dives per day. Each day was more fun than the day before! The dive masters were great with us. Laughed so hard our stomachs hurt! We really liked the small dive groups of well-matched skill... More
