The dive operation, including divemasters and boat crew were great.  Very
knowledgeable and safe.  I felt very comfortable diving with this
operation.  We dove Molokini (back side wall and front side) and Makena
Beach.  There was a slight surge and a moderate current on all three dives.
 I was dissappointed with the diving, the coral was quite drab, no color. 
There were not many fish, but the fish we did see were very interesting and
so much different from anything I have ever seen in the Caribbean (of
course!).  Saw several different frog fish species that were really
interesting, a couple sharks from a great distance, and not really any
large pelagics.  Not really any interesting formations (rock or coral).  I
don't think I would dive Hawaii again. 

The only problem I had with the dive operation was I booked the 3-tank
adventure dive which is advertised in their brochure for the
"experienced and agressive divers" and that they "invite a
select group" of divers for this dive. Due to some issues with one
diver, I found out later that this diver was a relatively new diver, so I
was dissappointed that that person was allowed on this boat.  Although I
will say again that the crew was wonderful and I enjoyed diving with this
