We have dived with the Kona Dive company for several years. They continue to be a top notch operation and I am still impressed with their attention to individual needs. They recognize when divers are a little nervous and will provide extra supervision and reassurance. Attention to small things is shown by the way the shoes are laid out after... More

Came to kona for the manta night dive. The dive guide luke is wonderful and very funny. I had 4 nights with him and was still laughing along! He pointed out lots of things on the afternoon dive and took gopro footage of me looking at the mantas rather than me getting everyone else looking at them. Mike the boat... More

Awesome dive shop! My family did a 5 day dive package and my husband and I joined for the night Manta Dive. Awesome dive! Dive masters were very knowledgable and gave great information about the Manta's before the dive. We were the last outfitter in the water, which meant the last ones out. Got quite the show after the other... More

We went through Kona Diving Company for the Manta Night Snorkel. We did the 2 Tank Snorkel..We left around 3:45pm...drove out the a cove area, were able to snorkel before sunset. We got out for wraps and snacks on the boat, while the lights were used to attract the plankton in for the Manta Rays to eat. We were one... More

The Kona Diving Company is a First-Class operation all the way! They couldn't have been more accommodating! I was only in Kona for one day as I was sailing on NCL's Pride of America. Most diving companies don't want to deal with the hassle of cruise ship guests but the Kona Diving Company was fabulous. They provided clear instructions on... More

This is a top notch dive shop!!!! It exceeded all of my expectations. Hailey was the dive master for my first 2 tank dive and she was so informative and helpful! Her pre dive talk set us up for what we might see which was definitely helpful once we were underwater. One thing that I loved was that we were... More

I did 6 dives with Kona Dive Company, including the world-famous manta night dive. I chose them because several coworkers had raved about their service, long dive times and small tour numbers. I wasn't disappointed! Pre-dive experience: The shop was very fast to answer my many questions, via email, about sites, protocols, and other policies, and easy to book a... More

I did the two tank manta dive and my friend did the snorkel. I liked that they offered this dual type of excursion! I'm a relatively new diver and this was my 8th/9th dive. I was a bit apprehensive since it had been awhile since I had been out; so I was so AMAZED with the care the crew took... More

My wife and I did 4 two tank morning dives and the 2 tank Manta dive. All of the dives were outstanding and each of the dive sites had something different to offer. If you haven't done it before we highly recommend the Manta dive. It's truly spectacular to watch the Mantas "up close and personal". We rented our equipment... More

My husband and I dove with Kona Diving Company three days, we did the manta night dive two nights in a row. The first night we had Luke as our dive master and he is the best dive master we have ever been with - he was detailed about the dive and engaged not only our dive group but everyone... More
