This was our third trip with Kohala Divers and as always it was such a pleasure to dive them. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, professional, enthusiastic and accommodating. We ran into weather on this trip, and I was impressed and grateful for their honesty about the conditions we might encounter, and their willingness to cancel rather than subject us to... More

This is a premier dive operation. It is very professional in all important technical and safety aspects. The staff is friendly and they put a high priority on providing a rewarding dive experience. I can’t think of anything to criticize. My wife and I had great time diving for three days with Kohala Divers. Here are a few details. Although... More

Can't imagine better service or over all experience. Everything was well communicated and went like clock work, and at the same time it was relaxing and fun.

I went on one of their 3-tank extended dives. A recent change in currents stirred up a lot of sediment, but they were able to find some sites with fairly good visibility. We had four divers to each divemaster, so service was very personal. Overall a great diving experience.

Planned a two tank dive, but due to high surf and wimps being sea sick had to cut it to one dive. Opted to dive two tanks the next day, which they accommodated. Winter seas were a bit ruff, but I hear that's the norm in this side of the big island this time of year. During the trips, we... More

The Captain and his first mate did a fantastic job finding whales and following a heat race and they were very informative

We have been on several whale watching tours and this was the 3rd with Kohala Divers. We had seen the puffs, tails, and breaches all at a distance when our time was running out. That's when Capt. Bill spotted a commotion behind us at a distance, turned, and raced towards it. There we landed up being in the midst of... More

Made the best out of a very bad diving day. Surge was bad and the visibility was not much more than 30 ft.

I found these guys on Instagram and loved their photos (they specialize in scuba diving so they have some awesome photos). We booked them for a whale tour and they were fantastic. Starting with the booking process, I called and they told me they didn't have any whale watch bookings on the day I requested but took down my info... More
