Comments Nice, calm water because the trade winds laid down for a few days. We dove both ends of Molokini and the back side. Small gray reef sharks, one white tip. Three spotted eagle rays flying in formation. Lots of fish and eels, including alligator sand eel and garden eels. One Frogfish. Essentially drift diving format off Molokini with the boat following the divers.

Dove off Kehei twice. Lots of huge Green Turtles, including a well populated cleaning station. Some fairly rare fish like Turkey Fish and Lion Fish. Once octopus. Numerous Nudibranchs.

Ed Robinson dive operation is "valet style" with them hooking up and handling your gear for you. Dive Masters found all the rare and small stuff. We dove Nitrox ($15 each tank) and the Dive Master diving air stayed shallower the second dive so he could stay down as long as we did and not approach NDL limits, allowing us to utilize all our gas. One Dive Master to each 6 divers. We had lots of leaking O rings, one bad enough that it shortened his dive.
