This is an awesome dive. Frank and Patrice are wonderful and have you comfortable diving no matter your experience level. They are willing to rebook or find other options if mantas have not been out. This is a must if you love to dive

If you're diving on the big island, go with PAC Rim divers. My husband and I are certified, and together we've been on over 150 dives. PRD has one of the best boats we've ever been on, and it greatly enhances the dive experience. The...More

Just dove with Pacific Rim (Heidi, Jim) two days. Everything was pleasant from booking to meeting at Marina to ride out, to pre-dive briefings, to perfectly paced dives, to post dive wrap ups to surface intervals. This is not the local big shop's cattle boat....More

We have been diving Kona since 1999. The dive operator we have been using the last few years retired last fall, right after our trip in September. So we were on the hunt for a new boat. Pacific Rim has a great reputation and we...More

I recommend diving with Frank. Excellent dive guide and teacher. He humanely put an injured octopus out of it's misery after being mortally wounded by an eel. Incredible dives that day with dolphins and a reef shark.

One of the best experiences ever! It was my first dive and Frank (the owner) was absolutely fantastic. He was patient and didn't rush me, and taught me everything I needed to know for the dive. And when we were under, he pointed out things...More

An amazing experience, enhanced by the hosts, Jim and Alison. Garden eels, a billion fish, manta rays - what more could you ask for in a scuba trip?

Patrice, I am from Spokane. My friend, Tim Duff, told me that he dove with you as well as rented a wonderful condo from you in Kona. My husband and I are interested in coming to Kona July 27th - Aug 3rd to stay and dive. Is your condo available? If so, what are your rates? We want to dive about 3 days... Any info would be appreciated. What kind of tanks are available. We are both advanced divers. Shelley Peterson
