Comments Shore diving the Big Island on your own is the best. Rent tanks for the week from Jack's, get a dive site map and go. The tough part is the entry and exit over the lava rocks, but the diving is great. Swim-throughs, turtles, fish - all easy and doable. There are so many sites you can spend a week (which we do every year) and only do the best twice! Tank rental includes unlimited fills, so you can live like a beach bum, in your wetsuit, and dive up and down the coast all day.
