We did a night Manta Ray dive. I have close to 300 dives under my belt and thus will go down as one of the best ever. Everything was so well planned and we saw 13 Manta Rays. I can’t express how amazing it was to be close to these huge and elegant creatures. I highly recommend Kona Honu Divers for this experience.
This place is amazing, they met all of our groups, certified, non-certified and snorkeling needs. If you book a dive request Sam - he is amazing. We did 5 dives and a manta ray night dive! This company took our trip from good to incredibly memorable. Thank you for taking the worry about ocean diving away, I just got certified and I was so worried about remembering everything. This was the only company on the island that could accommodate all of our needs.
Outstanding company that puts YOU ahead of the bottom line! My wife and I did the two days of diving with this spectacular crew. We've done lots of diving all over Hawaii, and beyond. This one is the best of the lot! Great systems in place to make your dive more enjoyable, from food, drinks, having gear set up, free nitrox, military discount and the best part was the HOT shower! Way to go Kona Honu!
Kona Honu Divers are awesome guy’s!! They treat you very well� You all have to check these guy’s out if you want to dive you will not be disappointed!!!
I did the Pelagic dive last Friday with my partner and i have to say that it was that it was one of the best dives I've ever done (i have over 1000 under my belt). The pelagic dive puts you in an alien world, drifting through space and seeing animals you couldn't even imagine. Special thanks to Jeff who was our guide during the dive as he showed us animals out of this world. We could see that he was truly passionate about his work :) THANKS A LOT!!!! 11/10
I recently did a Manta Ray Dive and Blackwater dive with the Kona Honu and everything was excellent! My wife did the Manta Ray snorkel and really enjoyed it. Their gear was better than average and well maintained. Our guides were Jeanine and Rachel, both gave us confidence in their abilities and took care of all the divers/snorkelers out there. Both my wife and I thought Rachel was especially enthusiastic and knowledgeable when it came to the mantas and black water critters and appreciated her relaxed and bubbly demeanor. Everything from scheduling, waivers and customer service were top notch from start to finish and if you are in the area, I highly recommend doing any diving with them, especially the Manta dive/snorkel or blackwater, if experienced enough. Not a single fault I can think of with this operation!
We were very impressed with the crew and what we saw. I would highly recommend booking your snorkelling trip to see the Manta Rays with Kona Honu Divers. So happy with our choice.
Will always use Kona Honu Divers. Amazing service. Friendly and helpful.
Phenomenal group of people!!! Boat was efficient and a lot of fun! The dive masters and Capt. John kept things light and fun all the while very professional. Even when there was a larger group it never felt like a cattle boat. I wouldn’t use any other dive charter while in Kona!
The staff and experience I had with them was definitely top notch and professional all the way. Did a 2 tank morning dive on Dec 16-2017 and the experience was great start to finish.
I was lucky enough to be able to make two dives with Kona Honu Divers during a recent trip my wife and I made to the Big Island last month (November 2017). I am an older diver in his mid-70s who earned his Basic Certification in 1972, and his Open Water Advanced Certification in 1976. Because the last time I dove was in 2013, Ally at the Kona Honu dive shop recommended that I first make a check-out dive. It worked out great! I dove with Vinny of Kona Honu and two other divers and had two great dives. Captain John C. and the whole Kona Honu team are a great group. I can highly recommend them!
The crew were professional, attentive and extremely friendly. They quickly assessed the ability of all divers and were there for those needing help, and let those very experienced explore- but always had a watchful eye on everyone. I would highly recommended men’s this team!
Very friendly and responsible crew. Takes care of you, easy to be on board and great choice of dive sites. Red hill is great and I would recommend looking into booking their advanced charter.
Had a great time with Kona Honu. Great crew, great boat, took care of us very well. Did two dives at Red Hill and had a lovely time. Looking forward to another chance to hang out with them.
What a great crew! The manta experience is incredible, but Janine, Kevin & Brooks made all the difference in my comfort getting into the water to see them! Will definitely book with them again!
Awesome experience with the divers and snorkelers in our group! The manta dive was out of this works. Staff was incredible!
The friendliest dive shop in town! These guys are always happy to see you and always happy to help. Kona Honu Divers is the definition of what good customer service should be.
We just returned from a 10 day trip to Kona and the Big Island. We dove the first and last day with Kona Honu Divers. Both days were great. Some things I really liked: warm shower on the boat. Up to 80 mins of bottom time, if you have the air left. No extra charge for Nitrox. Excellent pineapple between dives. Great staff - shout out to Liz, Ty and Frank who were all great guides. When you first get to the boat dock, they have free coffee and pastries for you. They also clean your gear and change the tanks between dives. Really good service.
I scuba dived with the Mantas the other night and all I can say is......OMG!!! A totally awesome Experience and one that I will never forget. I can't recommend Kona Honu Divers enough....great crew. I will definitely be diving with you guys again and again.
Had a great 2-tank Mantanightdive! Mahalu to this really great and special and vrry helpful professionel team! We highly recommend you! Birgit and Elias
