We do self guided dives at Two Step, Pebble and Miloli’i. All pretty safe and simple if you are familiar with your compass.
The dive ops often hit the same old spots over and over on the regular dive trip. How many dives do you want at Suck em up?
We dive with all of the Kona dive ops and they are all very good.
For a small group your best chances are with Kona Honu divers. The other ops have large boats and have a good chance at a pack of divers in the boat.
Talk with them on the phone and they’ll be happy to discuss making it a...
Big Island has a simple process after deplaning...follow the signs and instructions to the second testing area. Very simple and if no issues with your test, you get out relatively quickly and proceed to baggage claim.
The big three are Jack's Dive Locker, Big Island Divers and Kona Honu Divers...in no particular order.
All three are Very Good Dive Companies and will give Top Notch Service and be Very Safe.

So much can change between now and then but be flexible in any regard. We live on Big Island and regulations here are a bit more reasonable than Kauai. Have a back up plan or two in place. I always use autoslash.com to find the best rental car prices. It might be a good idea to have a couple...
We have been jonesing to get in the water and were hoping to do a dive at Haolewood at Papa Bay. Looks like we'll keep that on the back burner.

Kona Honu is a good outfit. They are also the only op that I know of (In Kona) that has 100 cf tanks available.
You won't go wrong with KH...lots of good dives coming your way.
The water in September should be great.
The water in September should be great. We live on the south end of the island in Ocean View so we like Miloli'i Pier and Da Rack/Haolewood. Two-Step is one of the most famous/popular dives on the island and should be on your itinerary.
Alot depends on where you are staying. Up towards Puako...
All the ops in Kona are very good. They are all priced right about the same as well. We dive mostly by ourselves shore diving but when wanting a boat trip it is usually with Big Island Divers but have gone out with JDL, Kona Honu and others.
