We dove five days (11 dives) with Kona Honu Divers.  We were very impressed
with them.  They were conscientious of divers' experience, capabilities,
and comfort level.  They would ask ahead of time before taking us through
lava tubes and tight places.  By day three they were asking us where we had
been to make sure we didn't duplicate dive sites.  They actively sought out
specific fish that we were looking for.  It took all week, but they found
us a frog fish.  

We did the Manta Ray Night dive and that is a must if going to Kona.  This
dive made the whole trip.  We had five mantas, including Big Bertha with a
14 ft. wingspan.  Be sure you are very heavily weighted on this dive as you
are kneeling on the bottom watching the spectacular show above you.

Thanks to Colin and Jason and the whole crew at Kona Honu Divers for making
this a great dive trip.
