     Bubbles Below goes beyond, diving. At the dock at Port Allen there is
an equipment check and a complete boat briefing before leaving the dock.
Then on the way to the dive site, Linda (owner) or Joe (divemaster) explain
the formation of the islands, the seascape, fish and critter I.D. and how
all these thing interact. Next after an inspection of the site and the okay
is given, the dive briefing starts. They cover water entry, descent, fish
and critters we'll see, ascent, safety stop and boat entry. 
   They take their time showing divers the little things. We saw Pom-Pom
Crabs (1/2"-3/4"), Marbled Humpback Shrimp, Harliqin Shrimp,
Ghost Shrimp, Redstriped Pipefish, oh yes Turtles, Mantas, Spotted Knifejaw
Fish and more.
    After Captain Earl or Captain Peter get everyone safely into the boat
and equipmeent changed out, then it is time for Joe and Linda to shine. You
would think they came up from their 1st dive. All smiles "Did you see
the Pom-Pom Crab, Did you see this and that." And the fish I.D. books
come out. Their joy for diving is in their smiles. The surface interval are
spent looking for whales dophins, etc. Another briefing,another great dive.
27 total while on Kauai for 6 weeks.
    During the Holidays my children and grandchildern were given Discover
Scuba classes as Christmas presents. Daughter 37 (Son alredy Certified) and
Grandchildren (11,11,14,14,15) took the class and Linda was wonderful with
these kids. Then on their two dives they saw Turtles, Sharks, Scorpionfish,
Cleaner Shrimp and the Whales singing in the background. Their hooked.
     A freind (60) from Canada visited after the holidays and also took
Discover Scuba. Heather (Bubbles Below instructor) was so comforting that
she signed up for Open Water Cert. and in 3 days was diving with us.
     Bubbles Below team love what the do and pass on those waves to their
customers, young and old. YOU GOT TO LOVE THEM.
