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.
