Comments Did the two-tank night dive with Ed Robinson. The dive only goes out on Thursday nights, and costs about $140 without equipment. The dive meets at 3:00 p.m. at the Kehei boat launch (where the morning dive boat operations leave from). The first dive is a late evening dive (not quite twilight). You then move to the second dive site while the sun is setting and get in the water when it is completely dark. In between dives they serve you dinner, which normally consists of cold cut sandwitches, but that night included a lot of grocery store sushi. They take you to some really nice dive sites, including one where we saw two octopi, a large "daytime" octopus, and a much smaller "Hawaian" octopus. Having never seen an octopus in the wild before, that was quite a site for me. The boat and the service were excellent. I would highly recommend this dive and this operation.
