Comments Excellent dive trip with Ed Robinson. Our guide Amy was very enthusiastic about all the various creatures we found. I enjoy looking for the small details of a dive and Amy was very accommodating. From Dragon Wrasses to Imperial Shrimp to Flame Angels and Scorpion Fish (leaf and devil). She found them all. Also saw Mantas, Greys and White tip Sharks, and Hawaiian Turkey Fish. I requested a frog fish for my wife, who had never seen one, and Amy delivered. The turtles at the wreck of the St. Anthony were a highlight.

We went in early October and it was extremely windy. Lying by the pool was not really comfortable and our 5 month old baby was not a fan of the wind. For those traveling with children we highly recommend www.thenannyconnection.com. They were an excellent babysitting service. We had Denise who our 5 month old loved.

The Westin Ocean Villas in Kannapoli is a brand new time share property that opened 2 weeks before we arrived. Still had a lot of bugs to work out. Only one restaurant and not that good. Service was non-existent and one day we did not receive our wake up call (thank god for the baby)

Highly Highly reccomend Warren and Annabelle's Magic Show in Lahaina. An extremely fun evening.
