PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT

Kona Honu Divers is dedicated to providing you with eco-friendly adventures and an eco-friendly dive shop.  The steps we have taken to decrease our impact include:

  • Regularly contribute to a variety of conservation organizations
  • We match your contribution to conservation efforts 
  • We are a Manta Ray Greenlist Activity Provider
  • Recycling 
  • The dive shop and compressor are powered by solar energy
  • Lights in the shop are LED and CFL's
  • Dive lights are LED and rechargeable
  • LED re-usable glow sticks to reduce plastic waste
  • No plastic shopping bags
  • Reusable shopping bags available for purchase (they also make great travel beach bags) made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles
  • Many of our shirts are made from recycled plastic
  • Digital liability waivers reduce paper waste
  • Filtered water & compostable cups (no plastic, bottle or can waste)
  • Encourage the use of re-usable water bottles
  • Donate to the Malama Kai Foundation to keep the moorings maintained
  • Sell and encourage the use of reef safe sunscreen like Stream2Sea
  • Host regular underwater & beach clean ups
  • We are a part of Project Aware's Adopt a Dive Site program and have adopted 2 dive sites to take care of and maintain.
  • Guests have the option to offset their carbon footprint by making an additional donation to Hawaiian Legacy Hardwoods.






In the first quarter of 2017, with your help, we donated over $5000 to Hawaii Ocean Watch, a 501 (c)(3) organization.

The 2nd Annual Underwater Shootout (May 12-15th, 2017) raised $350 for the Malama Kai Foundation.
