We were a party of 5 (beginner to divemasters) and were treated like
royalty.  The first day they gave us a boat to ourselves and said
"tell us where you want to go."  The staff are wonderful and they
just can't do enough for you.  The diving was great!  We saw mantas on the
1st and 3rd day (they just kept going by).  The tropical fish were
beautiful and plentiful.  On the last dive of the last day we came across 2
very large octo having a courtship.  It was amazing.  We did an extended
safety stop just above them.  What a great end to a great trip.  We have
been diving with Ed Robinson several times and it just keeps getting
better.  We stayed at a condo (Kihei Akahi) less than a half mile from the
boat and were very pleased with the location.  The locals are very friendly
and fun to visit with.

We also did some shore diving on our own and found it to be very good as
long as you go in the morning before the waves start.  It can be a little
murky when the sand gets kicked up.  The Big Island is very good, but Maui
is one of the best kept secrets.
