Hawaii/Kona

Kona Aggressor II: "Easy diving, colorful fish, and good value.", Oct, 2016,

by Elisabeth Sykes, NM, US (Reviewer Reviewer 3 reports). Report 9213.

Closest Airport Kona Getting There Direct flights are available from Phoenix, Los Angeles, and perhaps other airports. One can fly to Honolulu and then fly to Kona. Note, however, Hawaiian Airlines did not honor our confirmed seats on the flight from Honolulu to Kona. We recommend a direct flight from the mainland U.S. or elsewhere if possible and avoid flying on Hawaiian Airlines.

Comments GOOD:
