Captain Bruce's has a very nice 42 foot jet boat, and being on the leeward
side of Oahu they were able to take us out when the operators out of
Honolulu were not going, or were in conditions with much reduced
visibility.  We had pretty smooth seas, and good visibility on 3 of 4
dives.  Spent plenty of time between dives to watch whales and dolphins. 
We dove two wrecks - plenty of frogfish, schools of eagle rays, and several
species of Morays.  Turtles were everywhere. 

Nicest part of the diving is that they divided divers into more experienced
and less experienced.  Those of us who didn't need a lot of babysitting
weren't held back by the less experienced divers.  Captains Suzette and
Christy are very aware of the environment, and were respectful of giving
space to the whales that we watched.  Overall, this was a much better
experience than I expected when I decided to grab a couple days of diving
around a business trip! (complementary van service from Honolulu hotels was
provided)
