Unfortunately there was nothing good to report about the diving in Maui.  I
have never seen such a lack of marine life and color.  I was absolutely
disenchanted after only 20 minutes in the water and was so disappoin

Out of interest, where was your one dive, I've had some very enjoyable
dives off Maui, Lanai, and Molokini. I'd like to dive Molokai someday

This report is not helpful.  I suspect you did not see because you did not
look.  Please, a report on how Bubbles Below conducted their operation
would have been more appropriate.

I find Bubbles Below in Kuaui, not in Maui. Did you mean another operator,
Tiny Bubbles? This was really not a helpful review. One bad dive, pan the
island?

I've dived off Maui, Lanai, Molokini, Molokai, Kauai, Oahu and the Big
Island (over 500 dives total since I was certified in Kauai in Nov 2007).
Sure, Hawaii doesn't have the coral found elsewhere in the Pacific (Hawaii
is too far north), but unique underwater topography from lava flows,
collapsed lava tubes, etc.  Bubbles Below is in Kauai (I dive with Fathom
Five).

I agree with Craig; you must mean Tiny Bubbles on Maui, since you
previously wrote a favorable review of Bubbles Below (Kauai) in 2011.

I was mistaken about the dive outfit.  It was B&B.  I wasn't upset with
B&B (but maybe I should have been), they took us to a site that was
almost completely devoid of any marine life.  After that dive I made the
assumption that diving in Maui had to be terrible everywhere if they
thought that was good enough to drop us where they did.

Bubbles below is indeed on Kauai--While maui does not have a lot of coral
it has sharks, reef fish,and very good viz at Molonkini crater--The next
time try Mike severns diving or another operator--To be sure the diving is
not world class, but can be fun.  Hank Goichman
