SCUBA Certification Course
We spend the first two days of SCUBA instruction split between the classroom and the dive pool. Our SCUBA instructors are among the best on the islands and work with you until you are comfortable with the necessary skills. We spend our next two days in the ocean, logging two shore dives (entering the ocean from the shore) and two boat dives (entering the ocean from a boat). While earning SCUBA certification you’ll experience all of Hawaii’s underwater creatures, including sea turtles, frogfish, sea cucumbers, moray eels, and octopi. On the last day of the certification course we get to check out Kona Town and celebrate our accomplishments with an authentic Hawaiian feast.
The Manta Ray night snorkel is rated as one of the top 10 snorkels in the world. We take a sunset boat ride along the Kona coast to the viewing site. Slip into the water with your snorkel guide and float above majestic manta rays as they somersault, glide, and pivot in the beam of your underwater light. Manta rays are filter feeders and feed on plankton attracted to light. They have very large mouths, but no sharp teeth. Manta rays do not have tail stingers. It is a safe and truly unforgettable experience.
