Walk along a volcanic black sand beach and swim in a pristine lagoon full of sea turtles on this fully narrated and guided snorkel tour.
Hilo scuba diving at Sea Turtle Cove
Join us for a fun and memorable experience in Hilo on a one-tank shore dive along the island’s iconic east coast! Our Big Island scuba diving tour departs from the Hilo Ocean Adventures shop and cruises for a few miles along the beautiful coast to our amazing dive site.
Hilo is especially unique as the cool freshwater springs that enter the sea along our coast regulate ocean temperatures and prevent coral bleaching. Take advantage of this natural phenomenon as you dive among untouched reef walls and spectacular rock formations, and immerse yourself in East Hawaii’s thriving and diverse sea life.
You might see a wide variety of marine life like sea turtles, corals, tropical reef fish, eels, manta and eagle rays, and more, and your divemaster will point out these amazing creatures, ensuring that you have a memorable and exciting experience.
Feel free to leave your gear at home and dive with our top-of-the-line equipment such as 2018 Atomic Z3 regulators and Oceanic BCDs. Come explore the unseen side of Hawai‘i Island on a Hilo scuba diving tour.
Please note that you MUST wait at least 12 hours before ascending above 2,500 ft after your dive. A two-tank dive increases your wait time to 18 hours. This tour requires you to have the ability to swim and that you are able to use a snorkel or regulator. Minors 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Please check in at the Hilo Ocean Adventures shop 15 minutes before your trip. Detailed directions will be included in your confirmation email.
