The title says it all. The crew of Chris, Dave & Mike were professional, knowledgeable & friendly. We had a sweet ride aboard the "Kamanu" as we cruised out to the site. They know there stuff and we positioned ourselves (as my wife thought) a little too close to the rocky wall. Clearly though there was no danger at all.... More

Went on the Manta Ray night dive while in Kona, and it was amazing. Everything went off without a hitch, tons of manta rays showed up, and Zoe, Becca, Katrina and Captain Dan were both professional and a ton of fun. I will recommend Big Island Divers to anyone who asks me for ideas when they're on the big island.

Tonight my wife and our two friends visited Big Island Divers and rode with Captain Chris aboard the honu iki. Our two guides were Greg and Jenna and all three crew had loads of great information and terrible jokes to accompany. There were about 18 guests on the boat but it wasn't too crowded. There was a swell in town,... More

I've been going to the Big Island for years, and this is the first time I've done the Manta Ray snorkel. It was AMAZING!!! I have put it... More

Been diving for 30 years with over 2000 dives and saw not only our first tiger shark but three circling us. Very cool. Corinne was very nice. The shop is professional. They even cleaned the shirt I left on the boat. Very solid outfit. Will dive w them again next time.

Wow! My husband and I went on a night snorkel trip to see manta rays. We took a beautiful boat ride out to the dive spot at sunset. Watched the sunset and Evan gave a hilarious and informative overview of what to expect and some rules to ensure our safety, as well as the manta ray's safety. Jennie and Nick... More

This was our third year diving with Big Island Divers. We keep coming back because of the superb service we get from them, and because of the friendly staff. This is a first-class operation, and we recommend them to anyone who wants to experience the best diving Kona has to offer. Big shout-outs to our divemasters Tara, Brooke, Katrina and... More
