Kailua Kona is located in the North Kona District, Hawaii. It is a lively seaside town with sunny tropical weather all year long and lies at the bottom of the Hualalai Volcano.
The town hosts many interesting historical sites and is famous for its Kona Coffee cultivation and the crystal clear sea. Kona International Airport is located at fifteen minutes in the south of the main town. Along the sea side, there are shops and schools to buy or rent diving gear as well as take lessons if you are a beginner.
La’aloa Bay is an exciting place for scuba diving, with an average depth of 25 ft/7.6 m and maximum depth 50 ft/15 m. It offers a low sea current and good visibility, which makes it perfect for all divers. The biodiversity of the bottom is very interesting because you have to, at first snorkel out of the cove following the reef and then start diving at 25 ft/7.6 m where you see lava tubes, a big arched cavern and sandy areas. Divers should be careful of boat traffic.
