Sandwich Isle Divers
offers a unique and enjoyable boat diving experience. For your comfort,
dive charters are kept to a maximum of six
passengers. We offer a full range of scuba instruction
courses, and if you're interested in shore diving Kona's waters,
check out our equipment rental rates.
Since the Kona Coast
is protected from the elements by three large volcanoes, you will
experience a very pleasant ride to the sites.
The most popular dive
we offer is a two-tank, two-location morning dive. The average boat
ride is twenty minutes. The variety of underwater structure in relatively
shallow water lends to a typical dive profile in the thirty to sixty
foot range. We find this dive plan optimal for a number of reasons:
greatest variety of sea life is in shallow water.
risk of "the bends" is greatly reduced in the "comfort zone."
prefer 60 minutes of bottom time at thirty feet to 15 minutes at ninety
In addition, afternoon
dives, night and night/dusk dives, and fish/dive charters are always
available on request.
The varying degree
of customer interest in these dives does require us to ask for advance
notice in order to assure bookings (call our toll free number below
or contact us to inquire
about possible dates).
