Incredible Kona Night Dive

My Brother in law, Chuck and I have now done six dive with them and they have all been great! This trip -a two tank morning dive early in the week, and a one of a kind reef night dive. I highly recommend the night dive, it was just incredible. Lindsey and Imran, our divemasters were just super fun and helpful. The personal service in the shop and on the boat are second to none. I highly recommend Kona Diving company. We plan to come back yearly and will not dive with anyone else!

Friendly Staff and a memory of a lifetime

Amongst all the dive shops in Kona I decided to go out with Kona Diving Company after a friend's recommendation and I'm so glad I went out with them!
The boat crew and our guides were amazing humans - Imran and Trixi were so knowledgable about mantas and the dive site. More than that their friendliness was so infectious that we all became friends at the end.
I booked a trip to Kona so I can dive with Manta Rays for the first time and Mantas decided NOT to come out and play the first night I went with them, but thanks to Kona Diving Company, they gave me a discount on the second day of diving and I was able to dive with Manta rays!!
It's truly a magical experience to get to see Mantas in real life and I highly recommend Kona Diving Company as your dive shop!

Look no further!

We used 3 different companies to dive while in Hawaii, and Kona diving stood out as best in class. Their boat had great accommodations including food, drinks, and a hot shower. Their guides we amazing. We did 3 dives with them and Sarah, Trixi, and Daniel were all amazing. If you’re looking for a dive company in Kona, this is it!

My New Gold Standard

For my money, Kona Diving Company is the only way to dive Kona. Everything starts with quick and clear communications from the dive shop with Casey and Kerstin. Once on the boat, you're part of the KDC family, in part because you're with a small group of divers, but also because you're likely to be with at least one of their regulars. KDC has a large group of repeat customers because they take care of everything so you don't have to, from picking the best sites to setting up your gear and even taking your wetsuit to wash and dry it. Their captains are as good at calling out wildlife on the surface as their dive masters are at finding awesome stuff below. We went diving multiple days with Trixi, Dave Tommy, Emro, and Hailey who all have great attitudes and lead with a "no bad days" attitude. Kona is a beautiful place to dive and these are the people you want as your guides. I personally recommend taking advantage of their multi-day packages, and if you don't book at least one manta dive, you messed up.

One of the best dive operators anywhere

I have been diving for nearly 40 years and Kona Diving Company is one of the best. They are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, fun, and safety conscious. They have smaller boats which translates to less divers each trip and more personalized attention. If you are doing multiple days of diving, they will keep your BDC, reg, and wetsuit the entire time and have it ready to go for you the next day. They do not limit your bottom time, only that you stay within air and no-decompression limits. Do not miss out on the manta night dive! It is a bucket list dive!
