I have been a certified diver for over 18 years and wanted to support my boyfriend through his PADI Open Water Certification while we were on vacation in Hawaii. I did a lot of research to find a great dive company - one that would ensure my boyfriend's first dive experience safe and memorable. I found Waikoloa Coast Divers on the internet and emailed the owner Doug Bach for more information. Doug was very understanding and his entire dive crew was amazing! We dove four times with Bob, Adam and Gail under the watchful eye of Captain James. We dove Turtle Mound, Buddha Point, Pentagon and others and were always pleased to see unique lava formations and a wide variety of sea life including dolphins, an octopus, and sea turtles (Honu). The entire crew was welcoming, attentive and I was happy to note everyone put diver safety first. We could not have asked for a better experience. We will always dive with Waikoloa Coast Divers when visiting the Big Island - Mahalo!
