What people are saying about Hilo

This introduction to diving was excellent for newbies and people who haven’t been diving for a while and need a refresher. The teacher, Doug, was excellent and had a lot of patience for slow and steady learning. You will start off in the pool practicing skills, one of which is getting the wetsuit on!, and then you and a team of dive professionals make your way to the boat. The weather was bad this day and the team worked together with our excellent captain to find a locale where we could all feel safe to jump in and get out. On the way, we saw humpback whales and spinner dolphins! Great team, wonderful experience...I feel comfortable telling everyone to book with this company.

Tour was very interesting. We were fortunate, to have good weather, and smooth seas. Kimo is a very good captain! It was great, learning more about Hilo!

The guide was excellent and so informative. It was so fun, and we saw a sea turtle, which was on my bucket list. Love sitting on the front of the boat.

Great experience, very knowledgeable and friendly guide.
