Kona Honu Divers is locally owned and operated. From the moment you step into the shop or prepare to board the boat, the Honu One, you become part of our ohana or family. The 46′ Honu One is a custom built dive boat. It is extremely seaworthy, reliable, and fast with a smooth ride. We offer a comfortable environment for passengers as we visit over 50 dive sites that make the Kona coast such a great place to dive. Our custom dive boat has DAN oxygen units, first aid kits, are coast guard inspected and approved. On a typical charter, you are one of 10 to 12 divers sharing our spacious vessels. This is less than 50% maximum capacity. There is lots of room for divers to stretch out. The Honu One has a marine head or toilet, fresh water shower, dedicated camera table, rinse tank, and lots of shade.
At Kona Honu Divers, the crew takes all the work out of diving! We will set up your gear and switch gear over between dives. When it’s time to dive we make entering the water extremely simple and safe. A crew member will carry your gear to the stern while you wait, seated, on one of two metal benches. All that’s left is for you to strap on your tank and stride into the clear Kona water. After your first dive enjoy fresh island fruit, cookies, pretzels, and water while the crew switches your gear over to a fresh tank. After your second dive your gear is rinsed for you as we motor back to the harbor.
Our dives are guided by knowledgeable instructors who brief you on what to expect to see before you enter the water. Encounters with dolphin, turtles, and manta rays are common in our Kona waters and other visitors make special appearances to assure that every dive can turn into something extraordinary.
