AquaZone was the Dive Op in our large Marriott on Waikiki. Although we
didnt have reservations with them, we were able to dive with them the next
day. We usually make reservations far ahead  but we were impressed with
them after talking to them. We were very impressed with how organized and
helpful they were  during the reservation process, transportation to the
boat, getting suited up, and diving. I would highly recommend them for
beginner divers. They treated everyone the same, so highly experienced
divers may find this level of help and direction to be annoying and
undesirable. 

Our first dive was the Corsair. Lots of tropical fish, including a Leaf
Scorpionfish. There is a field of Garden Eels around the wreck that they
tell you to look for during the dive briefing. Our second dive as Turtle
Canyons. Lots and lots of turtles  mostly 2 to 3 feet long. They hide
under the ledges of the craters. Unfortunately you could also see the
tumors growing over their eyes and around their heads.
