Comments This was our first dives in the COVID world. We did 6 dives total over 3 days and because of COVID restrictions present at that time, the boats were only half loaded which was great and gave us lots of room. May have been quite cramped if full. We did their manta ray night dive and a dusk dive just before. On the dusk dive there were dolphins playing with a sea cucumber - quite magical and there were quite a few rays on the night dive. The day time diving was as expected for the coast of Kona, i.e. not many large fish but the usual assortment of smaller tropical fish. Coral was also quite plain but the attraction there is more in the lava formation: overhangs and small lava tubes.
