Overview
More
Kona Honu Divers is locally owned and operated. From the moment you step into the shop or prepare to board our boat, you become part of our "ohana" or family. Our boat is safe and comfortable. Our dives are guided by knowledgeable instructors who brief you on what to expect to see before you enter the water. Encounters with dolphin, turtles, and manta rays are common in the placid Kona waters.

Aloha rhondabumbaugh, We couldn’t agree more. Snorkeling with the Mantas is an experience like no other. It’s amazing how graceful and agile theses gorgeous creatures can glide thru the sea. It’s very easy to loose track of time when watching something so beautiful. I’m also...More
