My brother and I were beginner divers, and our instructor, Chad, was the best person we could have gone with. He genuinely cared about how we were going, and constantly checked up on us. He explained everything very clearly, and made sure we understood properly before our first dive. The rest of the crew were also really fun, and very... More

Had a great time on the manta snorkel Tuesday night. Kinda magic seeing the mantas (breath-taking actually, given how close they come) and impressed with the crew: great leadership, boat handling, safety and understanding of the environment. Many thanks for a lovely evening.

We have been diving with Blue Wilderness for years. They are very easy to work with and their operation is efficient, professional, and convenient. All the dive masters are competent and kind. We are particularly fond of the detailed dives that are conducted by Kevin. Highly recommended.

I was delighted to find a dive operation in Waikoloa, having always headed up to Kona to dive. This was so much more convenient leaving from Puaku harbor. I was skeptical when I saw the RIB boat, but it was a nice boat to ride, if a bit cramped. The guides were friendly and gave an excellent briefing. Homemade cookies... More

Really lax in how they run things..they cut corners and makes you question what other corners they cut I didn't see. They never checked PADI cards for our group of 12. Red flag. They provided no pre-dive information..just let us all jump in the water. When we were pretty far under poor management of keeping the group together. Not at... More

We reserved snorkel gear for a week for our family of five. It was a little cold so we ended up returning for wetsuits for the kids. They had good sales on rash guards and neoprene socks. The staff was very helpful.

The group/shops were excellent but the diving sites aren't interesting, corals are dead, no color at all

I'm glad you enjoyed our service! I am commenting with regard to your description of the dive sites mainly to defend the coral reel health in Hawaii. Unfortunately Mother Nature did not cooperate with sunny sky's and clear water during your visit and the visibility was greatly affected. The reefs in the Puako area are indeed healthy and under normal... More

I booked a dive for my 16 year old daughter and a night manta ray snorkel for my wife and son. Both said they were excellent with my daughter saying there were lots of turtle's and colorful fish. My wife said they saw 3 large Manta rays. The crews were extremely knowledgeable and safety was there priority.

The Night Manta dive is so cool a must do. We saw 4 huge manta's. they were right up to you and even touch u from time... More
