Owner description: Wanna dive into an adventure!? Scuba Diving in Kona is the best in the whole state of Hawaii. The Big Island has three big volcanic peaks which protect the Kona Coast from wind, rain and big ocean swells. There are no rivers or streams on this side of the island making the underwater visability over 100 feet on average. The reefs are healthy and vibrant with finger coral, plate coral, cauliflower coral, and huge antler corals, just to name a few. The water is calm and warm with an average temperature of 80 degrees.​Call or text to book your underwater experience today!

Awesome all the way around! We first booked with a sketchy company (be ware: ask the company about their lighting to attract rays), but luckily Torpedo Tours was there to save the day. The battery on our zodiac boat ran dead, and it looked like we were stranded. Many of the boats at the snorkel spot for Manta Rays declined to help. The staff at Torpedo Tours was not only willing to take us back to the harbor, but also towed our original company vessel and staff back to harbor. Even though we were not paying passengers on their boat, their hospitality was amazing. They made us all feel welcome. Bonus! A sea worthy dog on board named Scout -- he was the cutest! Highly recommend for a Manta Ray snorkel. Very family friendly.

Captain Mike and snorkel guide Rachel were awesome and gave us an incredible tour. Had a varied group in age and skill level and they accommodated us all. Rachel was particularly impressive with her free-diving skills, sharing her marine biology knowledge, and was very engaging with my daughters for a trip and experience they (and I) will never forget. Totally recommend!

We had a blast snorkeling on the night tour. The weather was cloudy and rainy, but the crew was amazing and accommodating. Joshua and Mike were so knowledgeable and moved us to where the Manta Rays were. By far one of the top things we did on our trip!

We booked a tour of manta night ray dive and we arrived at 8am as we booked. Nobody was there and said they are coming in an hour so we waited there - nobody ever arrived. We were charged 100USD for those phone calls and after 2 hours waiting we received sms sasying the engine is broken and they can not go (which happens as we heart after very very very often!) DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!!!

We sincerely apologize Kris P for your negative experience with us. Just to make a note, our Manta ray "night" dive requires you to meet at the boat at 6:30pm and not 8am. Whatever miscommunication you experienced we hope to clarify in the future. Mahalo, Torpedo Team
