Imagine walking up to our boat dock hanging over the pristine turquoise water. Turtles and fish swim underneath peaking out on occassion. Our friendly crew greets you and welcomes you aboard. As you hop on all of your gear is set up on a tidy station with everything in order. Further back in the boat spacious tables, benches, and storage are available for your belongings. Climb the ladder to the upper deck and get the captain's view of the water. This vantage point offers shade and more bench seating. Head down and up to the bow to enjoy the sight of the ocean. As the ship sets off you can grab hold of the railing and watch as dolphins play in the bow wake. Flying fish zip to the sides to avoid the boat's bow wake. Jump in the clear warm water at the first dive site and our guide will point out all of the marine life surrounding you taking care to find the more unique individuals. Kona scuba diving can deliver critters both big and small so keep a look out. Once back on board rinse off in the hot shower and sample some of the many snacks available. After chatting with others aboard it's time for dive 2! On to another beautiful Kona dive site.

Kona scuba diving is the best in Hawaii because our island has the best visibility, most pristine reefs, and great ocean surface conditions. This is because our island is Hawaii's newest and so it has all of the great underwater lava features brought about by the volcano and less of the sand that clouds up visibility. It's also well protected from the large ocean swells that can wreck havoc on the other islands most of the year. This makes for ideal conditions on our dives. Can you imagine doing a Hawaii manta ray night dive with 10 feet of visibility!

Our dive boats are well appointed and maintained pro-actively. This means you'll be cruising the sea in style. We pay attention to the little things so you don't have to. All of your needs will be attended to by our seasoned crew. Our dive guides love showing you a good time. They will scour the reef for critters so you can see all of the wonderful marine life Kona has to offer. Scuba diving Kona includes many benefits. We have dramatic reef structure created by the newly formed lava. Our rocky coasts are filled with swim-throughs, arches, and caves. The lava is a great place for coral to grow and you will find the corals house many different reef creatures from fish & eels to octopus and crustaceans.

Kona scuba diving at night has some of the best marine life because all of the little animals that are hiding during the day will come out to play. The world famous Hawaii manta ray night dive happens only at night and these amazing creatures are the star of an underwater show that is only found here on the Big Island of Hawaii. Aside from the amazing mantas there are many other creatures to spot in the night. Crabs, lobster and shrimp often come out at night for an appearance. Snails and slugs are also a treat found most often at night. It can be a challenge to spot these critters and Kona Honu Divers guides are trained to find this marine life. Kona diving has a bit of variety and one special dive that is unique to Kona. The blackwater dive is a night dive that takes divers off shore into the deep ocean where marine life that spends the daytime at great depths comes up to visit the surface. It is the largest migration of life on the planet and not happens every night. Squid, translucent jellies, baby seahorses and more oddities await the curious diver on this one-of-a-kind dive. Kona Honu Divers is the premier black water night dive company taking Monterey Bay Aquarium on research trips to explore this still little understood cross-section of marine life.

Our advanced dive charters are best for experienced divers. Kona scuba diving is great but have you been tempted to range further afield? Our advanced charter goes to some unique dive sites that are not available in a local dive. Sponge covered walls, pinnacles, canyons, and deep shark nurseries are just a few of the sightings on the advanced charter. Our guides will take you through long lava tubes and find some of the rare species not easily spotted here in Hawaii.
