My husband and I needed new snorkel gear and decided to try Kohala Divers since it's close to us. We couldn't be happier with the service and the equipment. The gentleman who assisted us let us take our time and try several masks until we found the right ones. We've been snorkel quite a bit since then!

It's easy to miss this great dive shop at the Kawaihae harbor. It's in the back of the small shopping/dinning complex. But you won't be disappointed if you're looking for diving/snorkeling and other water sport gear. The staff is knowledgable, friendly, and I was able to rent the fins before deciding whether or not to purchase them.

I've been diving with them for 10 years, in fact, my husband and I were both certified by the owners. Just had an amazing dive Sunday, we saw a pair of sharks on the first dive and a single shark on the second dive, plus the usual suspects like turtles and eels. Love the crew and the captain.

The dive boat was well-equppied and clean. The captain took us to his favored sites. Dive masters very good at pointing out interesting creatures on the reefs. Diving iytself- typical Hawaii. Not superb, but interesting enough to do 4 dives.

Great group! The staff made the difference. Super helpful making this the easiest diving we have ever done. Did the two tank dive in different locations and saw an abundance of sea life including sea turtles, frog fish, giant trevally, white tip shark and countless others. Thanks for the great memories!

After having been certified at age 13 and logging over 500 dives I deicided to return to diving after 30 years. Having lost my original advanced open water card and unable to procure a replacement I enrolled in a recertification program. With all the newer equipment and technology I felt it was a good idea to reeducate myself. I did... More
