You can go whale watching or do dolphin or manta ray dives (the most popular option). You'll be briefed, guided, and accompanied by a professional diver and provided with equipment, towels, snacks, and a shower afterward. The shop offers lessons ranging from introductory to advance. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Kailua-Kona holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Big Island Divers and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

My girlfriend and I did both the Whale and Dolphin Charter and the Manta Ray Night Snorkel and had a blast! The Whale and Dolphin Charter was awesome! We had Alexis and Scott on the boat and they truly went out of their way to make the trip great. We ended up seeing humpback whales and we got to swim up and close with dolphins, Manta days, and even a hammerhead shark! The Manta Ray Night Dive was something spectacular! We had Chelsea, Alex, and Captain Nick. This night was especially active and there were Manta rays EVERYWHERE. We even got to spend some quality time with one of only 7 monk seals. This outfit is great and they do everything they can to make sure your trip is great and everything it is supposed to be! You can tell they all love what they do!
Needed a mask for snorkeling and diving. The friendly and knowledgeable employee came around the counter without hesitation and after sizing me suggested a mask that fit really well. Fit and comfort was priority and it fit well and worked great, no leaks or fog. It also happened to be 1/2 the price of many other masks. She never considered selling up, only selling right. Highly recommended. Bought another mask for a family member there a few days later.
