Comments Aquatic Life Divers is a new operator on the Kona coast. They emphasize ocean sustainability and education. I always learn something new when I dive with them. After 55 yrs of diving, I'm impressed with the entire crew valuing the ocean more than my money. Their boat is well maintained and safe. The divemaster is very knowledgeable and aware of all the divers during the dive. They point out various critters and discuss the behavior of what we saw after each dive. We did two dives before noon. Max. depth on both dives was about 85'. The conditions were calm with excellent visibility. First dive was at Wash Rock and the second dive was at the Harbor Entrance. Harbor Entrance is a great dive, with lots of octopus, dolphins, an occasional Tiger Shark, eels, and all the tropical fish found around Kona.
