Comments 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!
