Has 2 boats.  The older one had a barrel fore cameras only, while the newer
one had none.  Very enviromentally friendly, excellent in showing both
macro critters and other sea life.  Had different types of dives. The
adventure excursion was on the back side of Molokini with depths to 130
unless on a computer, the other dives were not as aggressive but still had
many interesting critters(large and small).  What impressed me was the
captains and divemasters knew your name even thou they met you at 6:15am by
roll call.  Diving 2 days later with another boat the captain still
addressed me by first name. The St Anthony wreck had the biggest batfish I
had ever seen in the wheelhouse.  These are not endemic to Hawaii.  Just
outside were 2 giant frogfish holding on to the starboard rail.  Out side
the wreck was the remnants of an artificial reef of cemented tires.  There
were lots of critters in those tires and around them.  The whale sounds
were quite charming.  We had just surfaced when there were numerous whales
breaching and fin slapping.  Since you had to meet at the dock at 6:15am
they had coffee for you.  After the first dive there was fruit and some
kind of fruit bread, and after the second dive there was soda, juice, trail
mix, chocolate chip cookies.  There was a minimum of 60 minutes surface
time between dives and only 20 minute travel time between sites if that. 
There was a hose on the boat to rinse off after dives.  The owner shows up
in the morning and greets everyone and then goes out on the jetty to wave
goodby.  He will dive on the 3 tank adventure excursion which is his baby,
since it has no real schedule as to dive sites.  They will ask you where
you would like to dive or where you have dove.  All in all a good
operation.  I talked to Jeffrey in the office long distance to get the feel
of the operation and he was great.  They have a website and tons of info.

Just wish that the airlines wouldn't be so picky about weight.  If you wish
to cut back on weight they(dive shops) have everything for rent including
digital cameras. A lot of the beaches are not swimmer-diver friendly due to
the terrific wave and surge action.
