  My wife and I have used most of the dive operations on Maui.  They have
all been good.  B & B is a little different, and we think better.  Many
of the locals use this operation.  It is an owner operated Business.  B
& B stands for Brad and Blesi, the owners, and they are usually on the
boat.  We have our own gear but their rental gear (which I believe is
included in the cost of the dive at no extra charge) appears to be very
good.  They also provide computers to all divers.  The boat is a 12 pack
and at first can seem crowded with a full boat but the logistics of the
operation is excellent.  They have excellent safety equipment including a
heart defibulator on board.
  I have never seen them with less than 1 instructor and 2 Dive Masters. 
Brad does a lot of training so there are usually some Dive Masters in
training on board. We have always found it reassuring that there are lots
of eyes on us and they are able to break divers into small groups of
similar experience.
  The first dive is almost always at Molikini.  It is a timed 45 minute
dive.  Generally, they begin by going outside the crater to look for reef
sharks and other bigger animals and end the dive in the crater which is a
marine sanctuary.  We are wantabe photographers and love this site because
the fish in Molikini are not shy.  There are garden eels at about 70 feet. 
 The second dive is a one hour drift dive along the Maui shore where we are
almost guaranteed to see one meter green sea turtles, frog fish, eels, and
an occasional octopus.  We would never choose a dive operation because of
the snacks but besides plenty of beverages and fruit, Blesis turkey
sandwiches on Hawaiian sweet bread and home made chocolate chip cookies are
worth mentioning.
