Went to Kauai for son's wedding not expecting a lot of interesting diving.
I was wrong... The dive sites were varied and full of marine life. Lots of
sharks, turtles, monk seals, eels, lionfish, frogfish, moorish idols,
several species of butterflyfish, etc., etc. (Corals and sponges are not
what you look for here.) Interesting turtle 'cleaning stations' where
several 200+ lb. turtles (paying no attention to divers) allowed tang to
eat the algae off the their shells while they just hung in the water...
Great for closeup u/w photos and videos.
Owner of Bubbles Below, Linda (for over 20 years), knows the underwater
environs around Kauai like no other. As divemaster she pointed out lots of
fish and critters indigenous to Hawaii, telling us the common as well as
scientific names and any additional info that we wanted to know. Friendly
and efficient crew were helpful and most were knowledgable too. 
Trips to NaPali and Ni'ihau (only avail. weather permitting) were worth the
extra time and cost, offering changes in scenery and marine life.
Boats(6 pack & 8 pack) are beginning to show their age, but adequate.
No fresh water dunk tanks or tables for camera gear. They leave from Port
Allen - Sounth shore. 
Good dive briefings before each dive. Ample water, sodas, cookies, candy,
etc. between dives.
Would like to go back and do it all again!
