$1895 Partial Ocean View
per person, double occupancy
Dive with the Bears, Cubs, and Daddies on the Big Island of Hawaii this summer! Swim through lava tubes, explore underwater craters, and keep an eye out for mantas and spinner dolphins while you meet the many species of fish unique to Hawai'i and the ubiquitous turtles. Of course, we've also included the world-famous manta ray night dive in our package.
Summer is a great time to dive Hawai'i, with warm water and generally calm and flat conditions. The pleasant trade winds keep temperatures topside comfortable and you can watch outrigger canoes race on the bay in Kailua-Kona. Royal Kona Resort is walking distance to many good restaurants and shops along the Ali'i Drive waterfront.
With warm, clear water and little current, this vacation is a great choice for new divers. It's also ideal for divers who would like to visit Hawai'i with a non-diving partner or friend, and divers who enjoy other activities and island exploration in the afternoons.
We can arrange a stay on one of the other magical islands of Hawai'i or a weekend near the Kilauea volcano. Space on our private boat is limited, so e-mail us today to reserve your space.
- 7 nights in a partial ocean view room at Royal Kona Resort (double occupancy)

- Full American breakfast daily
- Daily transfer to Honokohau harbor and our private dive boat
