Captain Bruce's has recently been bought by a couple who is doing a
fabulous job!  Randy and Suzette are very customer oriented - they promise
"extreme comfort" and they actually deliver.  The boat is large
and comfortable, even with 15+ divers on board.  They supply fresh
pineapple, cookies, sandwiches, sodas and fresh water after the dives,
which is much more than I expected from a land based operation.  There is
even a hot water shower on the swim platform!

Suzette picked me up in Waikiki at my hotel every morning, and dropped me
off in the afternoon.  They have large, comfortable vans for pickup and
dropoff.  Their divemaster, Cameron, is a riot!  He's good at finding stuff
to look at or photograph, and has a great positive attitude.

If you go to Oahu, these are the folks you want to dive with!
