Consistently ranked as one of the best dives in the world, the Manta Ray Night Dive belongs on every diver’s bucket list. With no stingers, barbs or teeth, manta rays are gentle giants and watching them move through the water column is a sight to behold.
2-Tank Morning Charter
Explore Kona's underwater wonders: dramatic drop-offs, bustling coral reefs, and stunning structure
- Certified Diver
Explore Kona’s underwater wonders with a morning of diving on Hale Kai, our comfortable custom-built 34ft. catamaran! Our local dive sites (ranging from Pawai Bay to Makako Bay) feature dramatic drop-offs, bustling coral reefs, stunning structure and a dazzling variety of marine animals. Divers can often see octopus, sea turtles, eels, butterflyfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, frogfish and a stunning array of endemic species unique to the Hawaiian Islands. Lucky divers have the chance to see big animals like sharks, mantas, dolphins, monk seals and eagle rays!
We keep our groups small, with no more than 5 divers per divemaster. More personalized attention helps make diving safer- and more fun! Our passionate and knowledgeable guides love to share the marvels of our underwater home. Are you a critter nerd? You found the right company.
Dive site selections are made day-of, based on current ocean conditions as well as the interests and experience levels of our divers. Diving with us multiple days? Conditions allowing, we’ll try to take you to different dive sites every day. We have nearly 40 to choose from!
All charters include air tanks, dive weights, defog and complementary use of our masks, snorkels and full-foot fins.
Snacks are served between dives (including our famous homemade brownies!) and a variety of hot and cold beverages are available. Our boat includes a mixture of sun and shade and a hot freshwater shower to rinse off after diving.

Want to set your own pace without worrying about anyone else? A private guide can help personalize your experience so you get exactly the kind of dive you want. Fewer divers in a group can also make for more intimate and engaging animal interactions. A great option for photographers trying to get the perfect shot.
IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDER
Scuba diving is an extreme sport and restrictions must be adhered to before, during and after to mitigate potential health risks. Post-diving, this includes flying, going to altitude, freediving and other activities that could contribute to Decompression Sickness.
