Okay, so you want to be a certified diver.  We can help with that! When you complete the PADI Open Water Certification course with Kona Diving Company, you’ll have the use of complimentary rental gear for the duration of your course.  You’ll also receive a student discount on retail purchases in our dive shop.  All four certifying open water dives will be completed from our dive boat, the Hale Kai.

There are two ways to earn your PADI Open Water Diver certification with Kona Diving Company.
