Required to stay with the dive master on drift dives.  No problem, because
the dive master put up a sausage when someone in the group had to go up
because of short on air, just required to stay with the sausage until the
whole group surfaced.

We've dived with this operation many times, but this is the first time we
have been able to dive the Na Pali northshore because of the time of year. 
Did 3 dives in the vicinity of Mana Crack.  Beautiful topography, lots of
fish, gray reef and white tip sharks.

Toured the beautiful Na Pali coast during the surface intervals and got to
snorkel with dolphins.

Linda Marsh, who runs Bubbles Below, is one of the best marine biologists
we have ever been around.  She knows absolutely everything about the
islands and their critters.  She was able to point out things that most
experienced divers miss.  

Top notch boat with only 6 divers this trip.  Very stable and comfortable
with adequate shade.  Heated pizza on the engine block for lunch!
