Heading out for a day of diving

Location: Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Depth: 90 ft
Visibility: 30-80’
Who it’s For: Intermediate to Advanced Divers

What Makes it Special:

Located within Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park in Kona, Honokohau dive site is a local favorite for coral reef marine life and big animal encounters. Daily dives are offered by Jack’s Diving Locker.

Honokohau features lava tubes and basaltic rock swathing the sea floor. The natural crags and crevices are peppered with hard and soft corals, and house dozens of fish species, including resident schools of raccoon butterflyfish, goatfish and Heller’s barracuda. Eels such as the dragon moray and the whitemouth moray also frequent the site.

Dive guides often lead groups to the reef’s drop off for a chance to spot eagle rays and pods of spinner dolphins. Diver might even catch a glimpse of the critically endangered, hawksbill turtle and – on a good day – a tiger shark.

Manta Ray Night Dives in Kona

Jack’s Diving Locker

Get up-close with Manta Rays.

Location: North of Keahole Point, Kona, Hawaii
Depth: 20-80 ft.
Visibility: 15-30’
Who it’s For: Novices

What Makes it Special:

Manta Ray dive site makes for an evening of entertainment with two dives – one in late afternoon and one at night.

First, explore the reef as the sun begins to fade over Kona. Watch as colorful reef fish search for a cozy place to sleep, garden eels rhythmically dance in the sand, and a green sea turtle swims by to say good night. Then witness large, graceful Manta Rays gliding into the reef to be cleaned by the Hawaiian Cleaner Fish.

Come up from your dive to view a beautiful Hawaiian sunset, relax and have a bite to eat. On the second dive, descend into darkness and watch the night life come alive in the beam of your light. Observe in awe as Manta Rays glide in from the darkness to feed on the microscopic plankton attracted to your light. Follow a hunting moray as it searches for its next meal. And watch as he attacks an unsuspecting tang, twists his body in a knot and swallows the fish whole. Then visit with shy shrimp, crabs, delicate nudibranchs and sleeping fish. It’s a wonderful way enjoy Kona’s night life at its best!
