We went diving with Waikoloa Coast Divers twice on our most recent trip to Waikoloa. I can't say enough good things this company and especially about Bob, who was the boat Captain on our first dive and our dive master on our second. Request this guy.... He's great.
The first tank dive was a two tank dive. When I got in the water for the first tank of the first dive, I had to come back up. I was very uncomfortable in the water for some reason (had nothing to do with anything Waikoloa Coast Divers did. Just had a bad day). Adam, the dive master , brought me to the surface. I swam back to the boat. Bob, who was the captain, helped me out of the water and then encouraged me to go put my dive gear back on and dive in the shallow water right around the boat until I got comfortable. He told me that if I didn't, I would kick myself for the rest of the vacation. He was soooo right. He got in the water with me and watched me to make sure I was ok. Went WAY above and beyond to make sure that I didn't give up on diving altogether. I got more comfortable and was able to successfully complete the second tank on that dive and also come back for a second two-tank dive a few days later. Can't say enough good things about Bob and his incredible knowledge and experience. He truly did save me from quitting diving.
I also have to give a huge amount of credit to the owner. For the second two-tank dive that we booked, we were the only people on the boat. In many cases, I know dive companies will cancel if there are not enough people (we were there in the off-season). To the owner's credit, we went out anyway and had just an incredible experience, with Bob serving this time as the Dive Master.
Bottom line, I highly recommend this dive outfit.
