Comments The dive operation is called Captain Bruce's extreme comfort diving. And that is the truth. Suzette (operation owner) has thought of everything. The operation is kind of out of the hubbub of everything. But, they will pick you up in Waikiki if you like. Once there they will set your gear up if you want and change it out for you. Rental equipment was all very new. In between dives there is a head, hot water shower, fresh fruit and drinks. After diving still fresh fruit and drinks, plus sandwiches. Like I said she has thought of everything down to having detangler for your hair. As I was getting ready for my giant stride in Suzette was even making sure all my long hair was out of my mask so as not to leak. They run a jet boat so no propellers to worry about. The boat will hold 22 they take out a max of 18 with a max of 5 to 1 ratio, so they can divide experience wise. The day my husband and I went out there was just mysef, my husband and another couple. The other couple was getting certified so they had their own dive instructor. My husband and I had our own dive master and Suzette as the boat captain. I have been out with some of the best dive operations as I always research it well. But, I have never been treated quite so royaly. And all of this at a VERY reasonable price. For Hawaii anyway. Diving seemed to be higher priced in Hawaii than the caribbean. Actually everything was higher priced in Hawaii. I am certainly not overly impressed with what I see under water in Hawaii but if we ever go back to Oahu again we will definitely go out with Captain Bruce's again. And would HIGHLY recommend the operation! Great web site with all the info. Check it out. www.captainbruce.com
