Kona Honu divers run a good operation. I did four dives with them.

Virginia in the dive shop is very friendly and helpful and set the tone for
a good experience. The boat captains run a good operation, explaining how
things will be run before we get on the boat. The briefings before dives
are very good. The crew takes care of your gear if you want, even if its
yours. The dive masters work hard to show you fish and critters on the
dive.

After the dives they write up a slate with the dive site(s) and items
encountered, so you can write up your log w/o having to pester them with
questions.
