Kona Diving Company is a family-owned-and-operated full service dive center in beautiful Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. KDC was founded in 2010 with the goal of providing an intimate, personal diving experience with unparalleled standards of service, Aloha and — most importantly — fun. We pride ourselves in organizing tailored underwater adventures and education for divers at every level of experience, from wide-eyed newbies to the most jaded tech-heads. All dives are led by one of our fantastic team of instructors, providing a personal guided tour of Kona’s best sites, and ensuring you get the most out of every dive.

Kona has truly world-class diving, with vibrant reefs, cavernous lava tubes, majestic manta rays, fish and inverts galore, and the occasional “big animal” encounter. It is our passion and our privilege to share this magical undersea world with you — safely, expertly, and with huge respect for the ocean and all its inhabitants. Between that and our rockin’ dive center (located in an old Harley-Davidson dealership!), custom 34-foot dive catamaran, and outstanding service-oriented staff, a dive trip with us is sure to leave you relaxed and rejuvenated– or pumped up and ready for more.

So call Kona Diving Company today to inquire about our services, book a dive, sign up for a course, or just “talk story”. We look forward to diving with you!


As of Wednesday, June 3 Kona Diving Company is resuming all commercial operations as permitted by the State of Hawaii. We are proceeding with an abundance of caution and are still in full compliance with social distancing requirements outlined by the state for both our retail store and boats. 

 Emergency restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic for commercial and recreational boating and ocean recreation are being relaxed statewide. Commercial and recreational boating can now include up to ten people on a vessel at one time, operating under new COVID-19 “Act With Care” guidelines. This includes passengers and crew and applies to all recreational and commercial vessels.

All individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving or returning to the State of Hawaii through June 30 are still subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. The mandate applies to all arrivals at state airports, including private and commercial aircraft. 

We are continuing to observe limited staffing hours for our retail space until further notice:

10 am to 3 pm, 7 days a week. 

Kona Diving Company is committed to preserving and promoting the health and safety of our employees and guests. We will continue to pursue the latest and most detailed information we can access to better serve the communities we love. Check out some of the changes we've made in our dive shop.

Stay connected with us on Facebook and Instagram for more updates as we have them.

We have missed you all and are excited to take you diving again.
