3 days of 2-tank dives with Dive Makai.  

Excellent service all around.  Very fun, personable crew that love what
they do, and are very happy to share it with their divers.  Decent rental
gear.  All gear completely set up for us, tested and brought to aft of boat
for us and helped on.  All gear explained in case something might be new
for someone.  Divemasters provided excellent pre-dive briefs including site
layout, expected conditions, fish and critters, etc.  Also provided great
post-dive briefs as well.  Divemasters guided groups through each site and
pointed out interesting items and hidden critters.  Very helpful with any
equipment problems.  Provided yummy snacks and drinks.  Solar-heated
freshwater shower.  

No dive shop, but a van with merchandise that meets at the dock after
