Kona Village Bows New Dive Packages

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Ka’upulehu, Big Island, Hawai`i Pack a carry on bag and leave the rest to Kona Village. Divers can relax and make their next dive trip an unplugged, unpretentious and unmatched Hawaiian experience with Kona Village’s new five-night Dive Package.

The Kona Village Dive Package includes roundtrip airport transfers from Kona International Airport to Kona Village, three two-tank dives per person, use of a dive propulsion vehicle during one dive, unlimited shore dives (unescorted), and all gear including wet suits.

No trips to the marina – the Kona Village dive boat pulls up right on the beach at Kona Village. No shipping of gear – Kona Village’s gear is ScubaPro and updated annually. Dive instructor Jimi Kilbride’s extensive experience includes that of expedition diver for the Cousteau Society. He, along with all the attentive staff at Kona Village, work hard to make every day at Kona Village memorable.

Total package price is $3500 for two, plus tax and gratuities, for five nights, six days, of diving in one of the best places in the world – the Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. Rates also include flower lei greeting, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner served oceanfront, a twice-weekly aha`aina (lu’au) dinner and show, in-room 100% Kona Coffee and refrigerated beverages. The children’s program is offered daily (except portions of May and September) so little ones can create their own memories while mom or dad explore pristine reefs and underwater lava arches with Kona Village’s seasoned dive team.

“This dive package is ideal for divers who are experienced and have dived around the world,” shares Kona Village general manager Ulrich Krauer. “The package is also well-suited to novice beginners still discovering the mesmerizing world beneath the ocean’s surface.”

Nestled among groves of towering coconut trees, hugging the shore of the bay, tucked amidst tropical foliage around an ancient Hawaiian fishpond, Kona Village is unlike any resort in the world. Individual bungalows belie modern amenities within but no televisions, telephones or radios disrupt the magical setting that defines the Village. Unplugged, unpretentious, unmatched and most certainly, unforgettable diving. Hawaii, as it was meant to be.
