Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of boat will be used?

Kohala Divers uses a custom built 42-foot Coast Guard certified dive boat that has ample shade and sun, comfortable seating, stable platform and a marine head (restroom). Although licensed for 24 passengers, your comfort is assured with only a maximum of 15 passengers allowed at anytime.

Where are the dive sites?

Dive sites are located in South and North Kohala and chosen daily for optimal weather and visibility.

The Kohala Coast is the oldest part of the Big Island and are a topographical wonderland of volcanic action. Twisted and spun from molten hot magma to form unique pinnacles, lava tubes, arches, and bommies, these lava formations have been encrusted by more than 50 species of Hawaii’s stony coral colonies. Beautiful reef topography sets the stage for a huge diversity of fish (about 30% indigenous to Hawaii) and blue water visitors like sharks, rays dolphins, turtles and much more. During the winter months of December through April, many dives are filled with the sound of Humpback Whale songs.
