Comments 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.
