Rigid hull inflatable boat. No rinse tank but there was an elevated
platform to keep camera off the deck and out of the way and secured. Fresh
water rinse available at boat ramp after dive.

Very little shade on board, just over captain really, but supposed to be
getting new boat this month so that might change. Be sure to use sunscreen,
bring a hat. 

Loved the diving, have been diving in Kona many times, liked the diving
here in Kohala even better than Kona. Healthier reef, more to see. Never
saw a shark in Kona, saw 3 on first dive here. Turtles on second dive. Lava
tubes to swim through as well. Small group on boat so that makes it more
personal. They let you dive your tank, no timed dives. Both our dives were
in the 1.5 hour range. Nice! And cheaper than the big boats in Kona. We
only had the one day booked but booked immediately after the dive today for
another dive day tomorrow. Give Kohala a try, it is beautiful diving out
here and Blue Wilderness has a great team working for them. Sam was a great
guide.
