My wife and I have been diving on the Big Island for nearly 20 years and Mike and Jess at Liquid Cosmos Divers treated us to the most amazing Kohala Coast dives of our lives. They offer a smaller, more personalized dive experience aimed at more advanced divers looking for something beyond the ordinary. They have many thousands of dives between the two of them, and their knowledge of the underwater environment and creature behaviors is second-to-none. Jess is a trained marine biologist, and Mike is a professional underwater photographer, so you will learn more than you could ever imagine on your trips with them. They know the area intimately and have a personal collection of dive sites that other operators never visit and may not even know about. I'm passionate about my photography and it was such a pleasure to plan out a particular dive, looking for a certain photo opportunity, and have them make it a reality. They took such care to make sure we were safe, comfortable, and happy, and that we learned about the marine world below. We can't recommend Liquid Cosmos Divers enough, we can't wait to go out with them again. (PS Make sure Jess brings her homemade vegan banana muffins on the boat!)

Cannot say enough great things about this operation. Super small dive groups. Highly educated and skill guides. They excel at a level of customization that I’ve grown to appreciate and love, being genuinely interested in what we wanted to see and adapting the dive plan to make it happen. In fact, they even remembered my favorite species of fish from one vacation to the next and surprised me by secretly taking me to a spot they knew they could show it to me!!! That’s the special sauce right there! They care about making each dive the best for YOU!

My husband and I had the most incredible dive experience on the Big Island, with Liquid Cosmos Divers. We saw so many amazing ocean creatures, several endemic and rare. The water was pure glass that day, too. Couldn’t have been anymore perfect! This is a great private charter that takes you to pristine, off the beaten path dive sites. Mike and Jess are extremely knowledgeable about the ocean and marine life, they customize the dive to your needs, and have a focus on conserving our marine resources. Their passion for diving and conservation truly shows. We highly recommend treating yourself and book a trip with Liquid Cosmos Divers!

Not going to lie ! Let me start by saying, I am a very good friend with Mike and Jessica. The only reason I am a diver is because Mike got me into it a few years back on my first trip to the Islands. Since then I have done many amazing dives on Maui and Big Island with different operations where Mike and Jess have worked at the time. So needless to say I do not have a lot experience with other guides. I have witnessed the development of Mike's career as a diving professional first hand and I am really proud to see him to get to this new step in life of becoming a business owner/operator of Liquid Cosmos Divers company. Every dive we have done together was filled with new details in relaxed setting. It is always more enjoyable to dive knowing that you have a professionals by your side that have a deep knowledge about the surrounding areas, sea animals and environment in general. I have no doubts, if anyone from a beginner to a seasoned professional will give a Liquid Cosmos Divers a try, will have a wonderful experience. I wish only the best to this amazing new operation on Big Island and know for sure that this company will keep growing to become the most desirable option for the knowledgeable individuals that prioritizes quality. P.s. "Liquid Cosmos Divers" - where your wet dreams become a reality! With love, Danil.

Diving with Jess and Mike is like being with Sylvia Earle and Jacques Cousteau at the same time. This is the real deal for advanced divers. Fantastically safe operation in a very private and small format tailored to you. These guys are setting a new standard for what diving should be all about. They’re passionate about their business, customers and the environment. Always looking forward to my next adventure with Liquid Cosmos.

I feel compelled to share my fantastic dive experience with Liquid Cosmos Divers. Their small, customer focused dive operation was perfect for my needs. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable on the dive site selection and ecology of each site. I shared my interest in photographing some specific creatures and environments, and the staff tailored a 2-dive trip that perfectly met my goals. It was great to have a dive master that is also a professional underwater photographer. They understood my needs with respect to underwater photography. The small group size allowed me to dive at my pace - no forced entry and exit times! Can't stress enough how knowledgeable the staff is. Was unable to stump them on creatures; and they were able to add tons of behavioral knowledge - not just fish names. I felt totally safe/secure - their approach to diving is very professional and safety minded. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for a personalized scuba diving experience.

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.

Phenomenal experience every time with Liquid Cosmos! The dive locations are unreal- drift diving the unseen reef away from moorings. LQD can cater not only to what type of experience you want to have, but also targeted locations for the best chance to see certain species. The owners are ocean conservationists which is very important for me. Mike’s photography instruction will expand your skills to a whole new level, I have taken his beginner thru advance photo courses. Jess can share the amazing ocean environmental biology at a level you can understand. If you want the best diving with the most knowledgeable people on the Big Island, this is the place. It is an experience you won’t forget!

As a professional instructor who has owned a dive shop for over 30 years, my standards are pretty high when it comes to guides and guided dives. I can honestly say at both Mike and Jessica went above and beyond anything I had experienced in the past on the big island I saw Dive sites that were unique and mine blowing. Mike has an amazing eye and it shows in the photography that he does, and Jessica is one of the most knowledgeable caring aware Dive guides I know. And I know A LOT of dive guides. If you are able to book a space on liquid cosmos you will not be disappointed. They have limited seating and cater to Discriminating Divers, so make your plans early to avoid disappointment. Come prepared to explore. And dive the kind of Hawaiian diving you dream about. Rare species, hidden caverns, lots of bottom time and passionate dive guides. Don’t miss out. Call Liquid Cosmos for your next Big Island dive
