I did a double dive with Kona Diving Company recently and was not disappointed! This compress highly recommended to me from a dive buddy, so I did not bother to ring anyone else. It is a small eco-friendly dive shop and on my dives there...More
I spent a fair bit of time going to the various dive shops located in the area before deciding to book with Kona Diving Company. All the shops have somewhat similar offerings and pricing, so it really came down to the interaction with the staff....More

They don't focus on deep diving. Their focus is on giving their customers the best dive experience possible. They will ask people what they want to see, and where you have already dove so as not to duplicate dives for people. They try their best to accommodate everyone on board based on their training level and the conditions.
Most of their dives are close to shore. They do a great job with the manta rays also, either for snorkelers or scuba divers.

The minimum age for diving is 10 years old, but even that is at the discretion of the instructor as 10 year olds can vary wildly in maturity. Diving is safe when done responsibly, but it is still primarily an adult activity.
When we did the night dive everyone went into the water at once and stayed there until we were done. It was quite dark and you needed to follow your guide down. I would also have concerns about a 2 year old on board... More
When we did the night dive everyone went into the water at once and stayed there until we were done. It was quite dark and you needed to follow your guide down. I would also have concerns about a 2 year old on board. Space is very limited and it is likely that you would need to pay for a "seat" for the child. That being said you should contact the Dive Shop for specifics.
