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!


Kona Diving Company has resumed all commercial operations as permitted by the State of Hawaii. We are so excited to be back in the water sharing what we love with our guests again. However, we will continue to proceed 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. 

To our on-island kama'aina, there's never been a better time to come diving! We have an unprecedented opportunity to enjoy the beauty and wonder of our backyard without crowds and with relatively low risk. Give us a call and ask about our pricing for locals!

For visitors, the state of Hawaii will be allowing travel to the islands as of October 15 without the need to quarantine, provided travelers meet a series of criteria. All individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving or returning to the State of Hawaii through October 14th are still subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. The mandate applies to all arrivals at state airports, including private and commercial aircraft. Keep in mind, these dates and conditions are subject to change pending further decision from state leadership. 

Emergency restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic are being relaxed statewide, but please be aware before you visit that we still have state-mandated restrictions in place. Commercial and recreational boating operations can accommodate no more than ten people on a vessel at one time, operating under new COVID-19 “Act With Care” guidelines. This total includes passengers and crew (including the captain) and applies to all recreational and commercial vessels. Before your trip, please check out some of the changes we've made in our dive shop and on our boats to prepare for what to expect when you arrive.

Kona Diving Company is committed to preserving and promoting the health and safety of our employees and guests. While we are so excited to welcome visitors back to the islands, we hope our visitors understand that the people of Hawaii have worked hard and sacrificed much to mitigate the impact the pandemic. The state implemented particularly strict restrictions because our home and the people who live here are particularly vulnerable. As islands, our resources are limited, particularly regarding our available medical care. Looking to the future, we are proceeding with optimism as well as caution and humbly ask that our visitors do too.

We will continue to pursue the latest and most detailed information we can access to better serve the communities we love, both above and below the water. We hope you'll join us in practicing the spirit of kōkua.
