Best Discovery on Kona / 5 of 5 stars
December 2012 was our first trip to Kona, and Kona Ocean Adventures was hands-down our best discovery on the island. I've used guide services before, and Danny's a natural. Danny and Laure made my wife and I feel like they were just as jazzed about everything as we were. After our first trip with them, we literally changed our plans and came back three more times in the same week.

The second time was even better... / 5 of 5 stars
We booked with KOA in 2012... then, when we were looking for a vacation spot in 2014, we picked Kona largely because of KOA, and it was even better than we remembered. We did Discover Scuba which is a way of taking newbies scuba diving, and it was awesome. We booked 3 tours , got to know more of the crew, and they’re all just stellar. Danny took us to an incredible cliff-diving spot, Sara did the jump, then stayed in the water to video us jumping, and when we got back to the room, the videos were on my wife’s iPad. Who does that??

Amazing!! / 5 of 5 stars
We went on three trips with these guys: K-Bay Snorkel, night mantra ray snorkel and dolphin swim. We also snuck in a scuba dive while on one of the other trips.
The whole Kona crew is great. They are fun, relaxed, knowledgeable and really good at getting you the experience you want to have.
I wish I could give them 15 stars - 5 for each of the trips. Thanks!!
