This long range adventure is designed for divers who would like to see some of Kona’s more advanced dive sites and have the time and desire to venture outside of the normal dives. Sites may include deep diving in underwater canyons, descending upon huge pinnacles that rise from the ocean floor, penetrating mysterious lava caverns, or drift diving over unspoiled terrain. With less divers, extra food, and a friendly professional crew, this exciting day of diving is filled with fun and adventure.

- When can I fly or drive to altitude? For single dives a minimum surface interval of 12 hours is suggested before flying. If you have been doing multiple days of multiple dives, PADI recommends a minimum surface interval of 18 to 24 hours. We also strongly recommend that you do not plan to drive to the volcano, Waimea or Hilo, take a helicopter tour or stargaze on the top of Mauna Kea the same day that you dive. Following these recommendations reduces DCS risk but does not guarantee that a diver will avoid DCS.
