Well run operation with very detailed and informative pre dive briefings.
The boat holds 12 divers and you go out in two groups depending on
experience levels (or do your own thing). In any event you are under the
boat after about 50 minutes and you can stay down or surface depending on
your air.  Kendra stayed down with me over 80 minutes on several dives
including a really neat dive into an open cave called "Freeze
Face". She really loves what she does and takes her camera with her on
most dives. Kendra was very good at finding all types of marine life.  Dive
Makai uses low volume steel 80's and all fills were a consistant 2500 psi 

You would never know this dive operation was for sale by the work of the
crew. As reported un Undercurrent, Dive Makai is for sale.
