Diving or scuba diving on the big island. It is well known in the diving community that diving off the big island is a particularly great place to dive. Why? Well, part of the reason is that there's a ton of fish to see there. Lots of marine life. Lots of coral formations. Lots of different types of marine life. Manta Rays. You see that on the big island, off the coast. But one of the best things about diving in Kona, let's get this out of the way first. Let's just show you.

This is the big island. The diving is going to be primarily along this coastline here. Much too rough over here for regularly scheduled dives, so it's going to be off the Kona Coast from Kealakekua Bay up to Waikoloa that area. This coast line is beautiful. Lots of coral formations and lots of fish. Lots of different types of sea life as we talked about. But it is also blessed to have not only early morning conditions that are nice and flat, which make it nice for diving and getting out on the water, but generally speaking, it's got that similar types of conditions in the afternoon.

Many of the islands have trade winds that come in and make the seas rough and more difficult to get to places to dive and so on. That's not quite the same off the Kona Coast of the big island. That's another reason that divers like it here. It's really nice because it's just pleasant to get out in the water to dive.

There are many different types of dives that you can do, that you can get involved in here on the big island. If you're a beginner, we can get you on a beginning dive. This would be a one tank dive. You can actually go out and learn how to dive. Know all the things that you need to know about diving. Learn all that within a short period of time. Then go in the water and experience one full tank of air under water diving. This is on your first time. No previous experience.

This can also be done, and it's I think a superior way to do it, to do an introductory dive two tank dive. This way you're doing the first dive is very similar to the way it would under a one tank dive. You go through all the preparation and knowledge and understanding to be able to get through that one tank dive, but since you feel a little bit uncomfortable generally. Uncomfortable is maybe the wrong word. You just feel odd with the equipment on. It takes you awhile to get used to it. By the time your first dive is over you're ready to go again because now you feel "Wow I can do this." Then the second time is the dive that you had in your mind to begin with that you were wanting to experience being underwater and checking things out and enjoying it in that way, so you can do two tank introductory dives.

These can be done from the sand going in off of the beach. These can be done from boats. Many different ways to do this. Then of course we also have the certified dives. Certified dives, you need to be a certified diver. Usually these are two tank dives, and they'll end up going in different places up and down the coast. There's probably 80 or so separate snorkeling areas and diving spots that you can go to up and down this coat that are of real interest. There's lots to see. You'll never have to see the same thing twice.

But there's also lava tubes and some wrecks that you can see. There are marine preserves that we have along the coastline in places. It is just kind of a little paradise for the scuba divers that go out and enjoy the two tank dives. Get a little bit deeper, get a little more interesting dives of course when you're looking at the certified dives.

One of the other options that you have in Kona is you've got the torpedoes if you want. Some of the places will offer you the torpedoes that you can hang onto and scoot along a mile, mile and a half an hour. It kind of pulls you along. Saves energy and you can kind of cruise along at a speed and see a lot that's happening.

We also have of course the certification classes that you can get involved in and be able to get your cards that you can dive anywhere else in the world. But there are just a lot of interesting dives that you can get involved in, but the one photo I had up here first is the one thing that is really going to be different about the big island that you're not going to see in another way is the manta rays. We do have dives that go out to see the manta rays. These are evening dives. As you can see, that's a pretty amazing sight that would be really exciting to get out there and dive with these guys. Anyway, diving on the big island. If you have any questions about tours or activities in Hawaii just give us a call or check out tombarefoot.com. We're here to help.
