Great trip. One of the best dives i have done. The Rays were great to see and we were positioned perfectly. Becca did a great job informing us on the rays prior to getting in the water. Would dive with Big Island Divers again. Staff was excellent.

We had an amazing trip last night!! Captain Miley B., Bobby, and Jenna were fabulous. They made sure we all had a great time, and even provided hot chocolate at the end of the night. Jenna made sure we all say the amazing mantas, and that everyone enjoyed themselves. Definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a first class fun... More

The folks at Big Island divers do an exceptional job of making your diving experience a great one. They volunteered to take my personal BC back to their shop and clean it up for me. They did a better job than I do and I am picky. Great shop great equipment and great service is why I go back there.... More

Wow! These guys are just amazing. I loved every minute of our trip and felt safe and well educated. The registration was quick and the staff was very friendly. The only annoying part was that you then had to drive on your own to the pier - but is is just a short 5min drive so not too painful. We... More

Even though the manta rays didn't get the memo that night, we enjoyed the spinner dolphins and the great time with the crew. I was probably the customer they dread, as I was terribly seasick even though I took meds for it, but they were extremely kind and caring and I still managed to enjoy the trip. I can't remember...

Did the night Manta Ray snorkel again (did it 2 years ago). Last time we went to the site near the airport and had a most wonderful experience - saw lots of Mantas with one about 15 feet across. Unfortunately they were not at that site this time and we went to the original "Sheraton" site. We saw 4 or... More

The crew was nice and made it fun, it is definitely worth it to do the scuba diving version over the snorkeling. Even dolphins showed up at the end that was pretty amazing

The staff--boat captain, mate, and dive crew--were most pleasant and very professional. It was clear that your experience was their top priority. On our night, the snorkelers received the most action with dozens of Rays coming by and going belly to belly with us as they performed their acrobatic loops. We even swam with some Bottlenose Dolphins, a very rare... More
