Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Big Island scuba dive begins at Slip 18 in Kawaihae, where you’ll board the dive boat and embark on a journey along the Kohala Coast. You’ll be fitted with all of the necessary equipment such as BC, regulator, and weights, and since trips are capped at only 10 people, you’re ensured a safe and personalized experience for exploring beneath the waves. 

As you hook up your tank and prepare for the dive, the captain will steer the boat in the direction of the site with the best conditions for diving. In winter, keep an eye out for humpback whales while you enjoy the cruise to the dive site, and there’s even the chance your entire dive could take place to the soundtrack of whale song.

We moesten even zoeken naar de locatie waar de boot lag, maar bij navraag vonden we het. Je moet door het hotel heen lopen. Wij waren slechts met 1 ander gezin op de boot, we doken in 2 groepjes waardoor wij met z'n tweeen 1 duikinstructeur hadden, dit was erg fijn. We hadden een goede uitrusting. Je duikt niet heel diep waardoor de twee duiken vrij snel achter elkaar konden plaats vinden. Mooie duikspots!
