Comments Serious divers don't really need to spend a lot of money on dive boats on the big island because there are so many places you can shore dive.
Garret @ Kahalu'u Bay Beach Rentals was a welth of information about local shore dives in Kona. The folks @ Nautlis Dive Shop in Hilo were
informative also. Every where you go you can expect to see turtles and lots of fish.
My 12 year old son was certified two weeks before we arrived in hawaii. I read about dive makai in undercurrent and all their reviews were
especially positive. I was not disappointed. They did a very comprensive pre-dive overview. They were very supportive of my son's first
dives and allowed us to dive as long as we had air. Dive Makai were very professional but still had "hang loose" attitudes. Mostly critter oriented on the dives so we learned
a lot about the local sea life. I would highly recommend Dive Makai to both experienced divers and "new" divers.
