Kona, Hawaii Scuba Diving and Fishing – Some of the Best Hawaii Has to Offer

One if the things I love most about living on the Big Island is the fishing and scuba diving!

The water on the Kona Coast is mostly calm, which makes for favorable fishing and diving conditions about 300+ days a year; locals call it “Lake Kona.”

Dive Sites

There are dive sites up and down the coast. My favorite diving sites are found on the south end of the island. There, you can dive ridges, walls, and lava tubes. When underwater you will frequently see octopus, eels, manta rays, and white tip reef sharks.

My most memorable fish catch was a 65 pound sail fish! I can proudly say that this fish was so memorable it was actually published in the Kona Fishing Chronicles book written by Jim Rizzuto, volume 9.10.
