Diving is off a zodiac, so a rise bucket, if desired, on board. Large rinse
bucket on shore at launching area at Paniao.

We have dived with nine or ten different Kona operators, and Blue
Wilderness is one of the best we have found, especially if you are staying
in the Waikoloa area. They are located in Queen's Marketplace, and launch a
few miles north at Paniao.

We found the coral, fish, and invertebrates much better in this area than
the Kailua dive locations. At one point we were diving lava tubes with
whales "talking" a hundred or so yards away. The tubes amplified
the sound, and it was magical. Turtle cleaning stations, lots to see, good

Also was able to get a good shot of a devil scorpionfish. One of the best
three days of diving with them that we have had on Kona coast.

Have not seen a review of this operation, and decided to post one.
