The Story:

Since August 2019, Big Island Divers is offsetting emissions produced by our operation. Our mission is to increase our guests' awareness and appreciation of the marine ecosystem by providing them with life-changing on-water experiences. Our hope is that each person who joins our tours brings home with them a desire to care for our oceans in their everyday lives. We understand the impact of carbon emissions on our oceans; we also know how vital healthy oceans are, not only to our business.
