Hugh and John were great we went to some dive sites not normally visited. John and Hugh pointed out lots of sealife. I would definitely book a trip the next time I visit Kona more »
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.
