Comments Kai Viti, owned and managed by Los Angeles expat couple, is one of the best dive boats we have used. Dive masters allowed divers to move freely at their own pace; pointed out critters, formations, swim thrus & other stuff. Divers were allowed to surface according to air use with 400-500 lb remaining. This allowed conservative breathers to dive longer. The boat is clean, roomy, well maintained, and reasonably fast. The crew is extremely attentive, gear is set up & ready, crew will assist as much or little as the diver desires with donning gear, moving to the rear platform for an easy entry. Exit ladder is easy with or without gear; crew is at the ladder to take up BC & other gear. Most days included 6 or 7 divers; the boat comfortably accomodated 12 divers one day. Hi-end snacks & lunches were abundant. Filled tanks were left on the dock daily for shore divers. The resort was even better - top accomodations, very friendly staff, great service, exquisitely prepared cuisine with outstanding presentations. (And fun kava cermonies)
