 We dove with Ed Robinson's Diving Adventures based on Undercurrent reviews
and were happy that we took the advice.The boat leaves from the Kehei boat
ramp after being towed to the ramp area.(all operations in that area do the
same). Shop was set up on the back of the boat by John,one of the Captains.
Dive equiptment was brought on board by one of the crew after introductions
and paperwork and also set up for you.After the boat was put in the water
we boarded via a concrete dock. The Captain (John) would discuss the
current weather conditions and then poll the divers as to what everyone
wanted or hoped to see. A good briefing was given by the Captain and the a
site briefing by one or both Divemasters which entailed the site and
critters to be expected to be seen.Hand signals for critters were discussed
along with such signals as to remember so that the D/M 's could better
explain something back on board.We did two days of two tank diving and then
the three tank adveture dive. We saw sharks(white tip) on all but one dive
and viewed everthing from turtles to some small invertabrates. Also spotted
were some of the largest 12+ frogfish that I have seen to a few babies
which were about 2 inches in length.
 Once the dive was completed the D/M's,Amy,Dave and Ricardo were more than
happy to discuss what was seen and to look up in their books as to the
exact species.Dives were planned out as to a max depth but air hogs were
sent back to the boat and on all my dives I got back on board with 500 psi.
The three tank first dive was to 130 fsw for five min. where we viewed a
group of 16-20 gray reef sharks along with some newborns in the three foot
range. Safety stops were required and extra time where the individual
wanted to do some hang time was OK. This operation was and is one of the
best that we have dove with.A little pricey but all of Hawaii is so that to
be expected. I would highly recommend these to anyone.
