I'm an experienced diver with about 200 dives - and Kona Diving Company was by far the best shop I ever went out with. Even though it's a bigger boat and they'll go 12 max, they had 5-7 staff on each dive, there's a ton...More

We have been diving in Kona for 20 years now and have seen many dive ops come and go. The diving has also changed significantly over the past 20 years. We started diving in the late 1990's with Eco-Adventures and then many years with Dive...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.
