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
