Comments Very little shade on board, just over captain really, but supposed to be getting new boat this month so that might change. Be sure to use sunscreen, bring a hat.

Loved the diving, have been diving in Kona many times, liked the diving here in Kohala even better than Kona. Healthier reef, more to see. Never saw a shark in Kona, saw 3 on first dive here. Turtles on second dive. Lava tubes to swim through as well. Small group on boat so that makes it more personal. They let you dive your tank, no timed dives. Both our dives were in the 1.5 hour range. Nice! And cheaper than the big boats in Kona. We only had the one day booked but booked immediately after the dive today for another dive day tomorrow. Give Kohala a try, it is beautiful diving out here and Blue Wilderness has a great team working for them. Sam was a great guide.
