Overview

Wanna dive into an adventure!? Scuba Diving in Kona is the best in the whole state of Hawaii. The Big Island has three big volcanic peaks which protect the Kona Coast from wind, rain and big ocean swells. There are no rivers or streams on this side of the island making the underwater visability over 100 feet on average. The reefs are healthy and vibrant with finger coral, plate coral, cauliflower coral, and huge antler corals, just to name a few. The water is calm and warm with an average temperature of 80 degrees.​Call or text to book your underwater experience today!

Good boat and excellent crew. Captain Danny, Sam and Aaron were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Great family trip or group. Manta dive, dolphin snorkel and the black water dives are highly recommended
