Linda was extremely helpful.  Since Bubbles Below doesn't have an office,
she met us at the boat dock to show us the boat a few days before we dove. 
Except for having to get back on the boat, we could virtually dive any
profile and go anywhere we wanted.  However, we are basically Carribbean
divers and Hawaii was new to us, so we chose to follow Joe or Heather or
Linda because they would find lots of different things we wouldn't have
seen on our own.  We saw lots of turtles - some being cleaned, heard whales
singing (didn't see any), saw a variety of endemic fish, a Cushion Star and
a Knobby Star, a crab in a Sea Cucumber intestine, Bryzoan, Sponge Crab,
Reef Shark, Eels, Lionfish, Flatworm, and a baby Frogfish.  Carrying around
a camera was no problem, in fact others with us on the dive that had
cameras would show us things and, in turn, we would show them stuff.  I
think we had a maximum of 5 divers with a divemaster.  On one boat, since
there were 9 of us, they broke us up into 4 and 5 separated by experience
level.  If we ever get back to Kauai, we will definitely call Linda and
dive with Bubbles Below.

Note - pay no attention to ratings for accommodation, food, diving for
beginners, and shore diving as they are not applicable.  The website
doesn't have N/A choices.
