We did 9 dives with Big Island.We went with several different DM's and
Capts.All were very personable and professional.The boats were more than
adequate.They took charge of our equipment after the first dive day and
cared for it appropriately.Highlights for me,were the night manta dive and
the 3 tank extended range dive to the south.I suppose some might have
problems with the night manta dive(swarms of divers,snorkelers and multiple
dive boats),but,I will never forget 6-8 mantas performing their acrobatics
in my view at one time.It was surreal.The 3 tank dive was beautiful.BID's
is an excellent ooperation.I have no complaints.
