Super professional and personalized dive operator. They are small enough to still treat each guest as special but big enough to have all the facilities and equipment you could ask for. Their knowledge of the area, safety focus, and dive guides far outclassed the other...More

Loved our manta ray night dive with Luke, Sophia and Shane. The dive was great--we were fortunate that four manta rays showed up. The group at Kona Diving company could not have worked harder to keep us comfortable above the water and below. They handled...More

They did ask if we had a car, so you might be able to catch a ride to the boat. It can't hurt to ask them. They're super friendly! The courtyard is less than a mile from the shop, so you could walk there.
