big island | Diving

The Big Island's volcanic underwater topography is a diver's wonderland. Lava tubes, bommies, arches and huge craters like “Au Au Crater,” create a spectacular backdrop for Hawaii’s many indigenous species of buttlerfly fish. Photographers will delight in the many patient subjects like Spanish Dancers, turtles, mantas and frogfish

Big Island Divers - Big Island Divers provides you with the opportunity to enjoy a custom built dive boat for intimate reef encounters. In May 2002 "Moana Lu'u" took her maiden voyage and we knew right away she would be a winner. We are sure you will agree with our many friends who return year after year, that this is what diving is all about.
