Frequently Asked Questions
Why the Honu One?
The Honu One is Kona’s nicest and most comfortable scuba diving boat. It is purpose built for scuba diving and so it is ideal for taking groups of divers to one of the hundreds of dive sites near Kona. The Honu One is Coast guard certified to carry 46 passengers plus crew. Its spacious deck area allows for multiple viewing spots.
Choose to relax under the protective cover of the main cabin or climb to the upper deck lounge where you can hang out and converse with the captain or other divers with a view of the ocean around you. Venture out onto the bow where the view is almost 360 degrees and you’ll have the best chance of seeing whales or other creatures.
Included in your charter are snacks, but if you’d like to bring food or drinks then you’re welcome to do so. We can also provide food for lunch or dinner.
