My wife, daughter, son in law and I went on a sunset whale watching tour of a lifetime with Captain Bobby and owner Greg. Quite frankly, I lost track of how many whales we had seen after 20 minutes. The highlights of our trip were seeing two males courting a female and a mama with her baby. At one time,... More

If so dial up this vendor. I recommend this service for guests visiting Waimea, Puako (Mauna Kea Hotel & Prince Resort) & Mauna Lani Resort. We were lucky to have Captain Bob with his 1st Mate Bill. Together they were a blast. Boat only holds up to 6 for our 3:30 sailing. There were lots of whales to see up... More

I went out for a two-tank fun dive with Kohala Divers, and my boyfriend joined the boat as a snorkeller. We visited two beautiful sites along the coast and dove as two groups of about 4-5. Wonderful fish sitings, lovely coral structures, and lava tubes! My dive leader Tony was very clear, organized, and friendly and made sure everyone was... More

Used a coupon for free 48hr snorkeling gear rental that we got from budget rental cars. Staff was super friendly, welcoming and easy to work with. Gear was in great condition and they gave free defogging agent. They offer rentals of a bunch of other stuff as well. Would definitely rent from them again.

First of all, we came upon a large pod of dolphins jumping and playing, even escorting our boat inches away from the front of the boat and surfing on the wake behind the boat. Then we came across a mama and baby whale. After that two whales who seemed to be waving at us with their flippers. They twirled around... More

From the moment we walked into the shop until we stepped off the boat everyone was friendly and very professional. My wife and I hadn't been diving in many years and they were great and getting us back into the swing of things. I would recommend Kohala divers to any and all, regardless of skill level they can accommodate your... More

I did a 2 tank dive with Kohala Divers. I haven't been diving since 2000, so I'm a bit rusty. They did a great job bringing me up to speed on the new equipment and practices. The dives were great! On the boat out we saw 2 manta ray and during the dives we saw a real variety of fish,... More

We really enjoyed diving with Kohala divers. Everything was perfect from the moment we entered their office/shop to book a dive tour and till the very end. Tracey was very informative and provided us with all relevant info regarding the possible dive sites on the island. The crew (cap & instructors) was just awesome - very friendly and helpful all...
