    @jonhall sorry, I just saw this. That really depends on you, I dive a 1mm year round here. Water temp that time of year should be about 78 deg.

    Mauna Kea manta snorkel on your own

    Went and dove last night. No problems at all, we hung out on the beach after until 10:30 or so. No locked gates, no harrassment of any kind.

    Mauna Kea manta snorkel on your own

    Safe, easy, and legal. We've done it several times over the years. Limited parking available and a bit of a hike. Only about 10-15' max depth, sand bottom.

    Suggestions for Kona in a few weeks?

    2 step is a must, and you really cant go wrong with any of the Kona shops. shore dives are definately hit and miss this time of year. Also Kohala divers is a great shop, and the dives are much different than the kona sites. I haven't done the pelagic dive, but the mantas are an amazing experience.

    Looking for Big Isle operator/DM suggestions

    Kohala divers is a great shop, small 15 passenger boat. I dove with them Saturday, 10 divers in 2 groups. In Kona, Kona Honu, Kona Dive co. and Jacks are all very good, Jacks is the largest but still treats you right.

    Kona Questions [macro photography, shore diving, LDS that offers packages, etc]

    Another vote for Jack's, we dive with them often. I also have had great experiences with Kona dive company. Shore diving, 2 step is imo the best on the island. Mahukona is our go to local spot, super easy entry and exit and many things to see.

    First trip ever to Hawaii and I need recommendations for a full schedule

    No aow needed for the manta dive, no currents to speak of at the main sites, surge can be a factor at the airport site. Last time I did the dive at the airport we had 22 mantas show.

    First trip ever to Hawaii and I need recommendations for a full schedule

    The manta dive for sure, I haven't done the pelagic magic so I can't speak to that.

    First trip ever to Hawaii and I need recommendations for a full schedule

    +1 on the manta dive, the 2 tank dives will usually do both tanks at the same site, 2nd tank being the mantas @+/- 30 ft. Kona Dive Company or Jacks are the shops I like. Shore or boat for the rest of your dives? Dave
