Great boat. Great people.

We have been diving Kona since 1999. The dive operator we have been using the last few years retired last fall, right after our trip in September. So we were on the hunt for a new boat. Pacific Rim has a great reputation and we always said we would try them next. We were not disappointed. The boat is great,... More

I recommend diving with Frank. Excellent dive guide and teacher. He humanely put an injured octopus out of it's misery after being mortally wounded by an eel. Incredible dives that day with dolphins and a reef shark.

One of the best experiences ever! It was my first dive and Frank (the owner) was absolutely fantastic. He was patient and didn't rush me, and taught me everything I needed to know for the dive. And when we were under, he pointed out things I wouldn't have caught myself! It's a small boat, very personal, with a great crew... More

An amazing experience, enhanced by the hosts, Jim and Alison. Garden eels, a billion fish, manta rays - what more could you ask for in a scuba trip?

I lost my Gopro during a dive and figured it was long gone. But Patrice and Heidi contacted other dive boats that go to the same site we had visited. I figured it was a needle in the haystack situation, but on our way back to the harbor after our second dive, a diver on another boat was waving my... More

As has been stated many times previously Pacific Rim Divers is a well run, friendly outfit. When you check in at the wharf for the first day of diving just hand your gear (if you have any) to one of their friendly crew members and by the time you board the boat a few minutes later it will be all...

This was our third time diving with Pacific Rim Divers (2010, 2014, and 2017), and the first time on their new boat. We don't get out diving very often. Sometimes it's a few years between dives. As a result, we feel like beginners each time, and really appreciate the extra help and patience we receive. Each time we've had a... More

Pacific Rim is one of the best dive operators we've had the fortune of diving with. Patrice, Frank, Allison, Jim and Heidi all went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time, and we were all taken care of. They really work together as a team and as a family.

My last dive was with a large international dive company who were very professional with good equipment, but there was something missing. Pacific Rim Divers has the missing elements ... Fun and Friendly. The crew made me feel comfortable from the beginning even though I am a novice with less than 20 dives. The boat had 10 divers ranging in... More
