When it comes to customer service, I’ve gotten pretty used to disappointment. With all that is affecting the air travel industry, I understand the diminishing level of service and the ever-increasing price of a plane ticket. I don’t like it, but I get it. Hawaiian Air really angered me a year or two ago when they […]
Diving the Kona Coast, Hawaii I’m still trying to fill two more spots on the Kona trip for December, 2011. It’s a great deal so that won’t be a problem. In the mean time, whenever I stumble across an article or other interesting piece building up to the trip, I’ll post it. This one’s from […]
I’m working on a deal for the hotel still, but I am looking at the Kona Seaside Hotel. Basically, it’s a clean room, and very well situated within walking distance of restaurants, shops, etc. in Kailua Kona. I’ve stayed there before and think it’s great.

Check back here for updates about the Kona trip coming up next fall. At this moment, it looks like a go. I have preliminary pricing for the dive operator and some hotels, which is less than $1100 for both! That’s 7 nights hotel and 6 days of diving! If we go, there’s room for four […]
I have no idea who these people are but they are swimming with manta rays right off the Royal Kona Resort, which is one of the options I’m working on for the fall. If this doesn’t motivate you to go, I don’t know what will!
For those interested, I am starting to do the preliminary ground work to arrange a dive trip to Kona this fall. The goal is a trip that includes everything (probably not meals/drinks though), including diving, in the $1,500 – $1,700 range. I’m contacting dive operators now, so I’m really just assessing a level of interest […]
