"Kona Freedivers is an excellent operation. If I had a question or concern at any point during the 2 days I was there taking the Level 1 course (and 3 awesome dives), it was immediately addressed. Frankly, if I even appeared remotely confused/lost in the process, someone would initiate contact with me and ask if I needed anything. It really felt to me like this place was not only organized and on-point, but it was a close group of really cool people who genuinely care and are totally dedicated to the work they’re doing. The instructors were top-notch, and never did I hesitate or doubt that I was receiving the highest standard of training with the most qualified staff. Thanks again!" -Rachel Milazzo, Scottsdale, AZ
