I booked two dive trips with Big Island Divers. A daytime dive that was excellent and the Manta Dive and the Black water dive. This group of dives had to be the most fun and exciting diving that I have ever done. The groups were manageable and the dive masters/leaders were safe but provided a challenging and exciting experience. I... More

My wife got sick during the first dive. The company took us back to the harbor and gave us a refund for the later manta ray dive. Customer service was above and beyond. 3rd time we've used the company. Love them and will continue book with them when we're on the big island.

This company is GREAT. I am a frequent diver and I really can't even think of one thing I could ask for that they didnt have. We did the 2 tank dive and went to the Sheraton manta site. They had many different snacks and drinks. They set up and swapped your gear for you. They provided towels. ***They had... More

Went on a two tank dive with Big Island Divers. The last dive was a night dive featuring a manta ray feeding. I've done over 150 dives and this was by far in my top 5 of all time. After the sun set we went down to a clean patch of seabed and sat in a circle around a grouping... More

Honestly there's not much more that I can say that hasn't already been said but... why not continue to beat a dead horse? I decided to go on a Manta Ray snorkel after doing a bit of research on the island. Big Island Divers is a spectacular dive company and yes, I'm sure there are loads of dive companies around...

The crew was very friendly but their professionalism in handling important things like safety briefings left somethign to be desired, and docking the boat was problematic (hit the dock hard because the crew was not ready to place the fenders correctly). No mantas on the night dive, which was mitigated by our guide's concerted and successful effort to find other... More

The manta dive was incredible and the crew too !! They are so friendly and passionate about marine life and diving ! However, we were disappointed by the sunset dive as the master diver was a bit boring if I can say.. The average depth was 10.5 m we stayed only 2 minutes along the " wall of corals" at... More

So far I did four dives on the Big Island and two on Kauai. The first of the two with BID was a drift dive in very clear water but with little fish. The second dive was so close to the shoreline and in such shallow waters that a snorkel would have sufficed. However, here the amount of fish was... More

Cant say enough how amazing the mantas off of Kona are. Our group had 4 friends travelling from Oahu for a girls weekend and we all wanted to see the mantas. Two of us were divers and two were snorkeling. BID were so helpful upon check-in. We all were paying separately and they accommodated that as well as sat and... More
