Itinerary Details

Discover the Best of Kona with Aggressor! Lava tunnels, fingers and coral bommies rise out fo the sea bad and draw in marine life from the smallest macro to great manta. Humpback whales migrate through on our winter months.

Best of Kona Description

Kona's volcanic formation makes it a divers playground! Lava tunnels, fingers and coral bommies rise out fo the sea bad and draw in marine life from the smallest macro to great manta. Humpback whales migrate through on our winter months. Resident dolphins love to play underwater or in the bow wake. It's a popular warm water Pacific destination for photographers and snorkelers. Say aloha to adventure on an itinerary that extends well past the range of day divers.



The manta dive at Keahole Point is an undeniable highlight of the trip. This is a world famous night dive and a must do dive. But they are not the only big fish sightings. White tip reef sharks rest on the seabed. Turtle Pinnacle is an active turtle cleaning station and spotted eagle rays cruise past Kaokos Arches. Wend your way through the lava formations at Tubestria Tunnel or simply enjoy the clouds of butterfly fish, anthias and jacks on the reef dives. Garden eels hide in the sandy bottom, while scorpion fish and left fish camouflage themselves on the corals. The itinerary ventures far from the reach of day operators to beautiful South Point, the southernmost tip of Hawaii and the United States, weather permitting. No matter where you dive, keep an eye and ear out for dolphins.



You can really pack in the diving on this this, with up to 5 dives a day on most days. The Best of Kona itinerary is open to all levels of divers. All diving is done from the main boat, so messing about with RIB transfers or tenders. Most of the dive sites are well sheltered from currents. We would recommend an AOW certification to allow you to get the most from the itinerary depth wise. Dive guides will provide a full briefing for each diver, and there are in water to help with photo, video and spotting services.
