Exploring and protecting the ocean’s incredible biodiversity

Join us for an underwater adventure on the pristine Kohala Coast

Scuba Diving Kohala Coast

Explore the Unknown

We offer small group charters for certified scuba divers of all levels who want to “get off the beaten path” and explore Hawaiʻi’s incredible coral reefs. We are located on the Kohala coast of Hawaiʻi island and dive the remote reefs between Kaʻūpūlehu and Waipiʻo Valley – a 55 mile stretch of coastline! Our knowledge of Hawaiʻi’s waters and enthusiasm for its marine critters provide a unique experience for divers. This is a great platform for underwater photographers and videographers to capture the beauty of the ocean.

Our Mission

Connecting our divers with the ocean through education and personalized dive experiences is our mission. In order to protect, one must love, and in order to love, one must understand. We are striving to create as many ocean stewards as possible, and collectively care for our seas.

I live part time on the Big Island and dive a lot. The owners of Liquid Cosmos Divers, Mike and Jess, are absolute Gems! Their combined knowledge of the Kohala Coast, and the species that live there is amazing. The experiences my family has had above and below the surface with this operation is priceless.
