Comments During a weeklong dive vacation to Maui, we arranged a day trip to Lanai with Extended Horizons.They were recommended by our Maui dive operator,Mike Severns Diving,an excellent operation that is always highly rated in the Chapbook.We wanted to check out the Cathedrals dive sites,listed as "must dives" when in the area.

We were not disappointed.Maren,our divemaster exuded enthusiam and confidence.After a first dive at Knob Hill where we viewed peacock flounder and bandit angelfish it was off to Cathedrals II.This cavern dive lived up to its name as an ethereal feeling permeated the cavern when the sunlight streamed in.Site featured many pyramid butterflyish,achilles tang,orangespine surgeonfish,brown and yellow phase trumpetfish amd a male bird wrasse.Several white frogfish were there for the viewing.

Extended Horizons offers photograpy services for those who don't take their own shots and want a souvenir to bring home.We normally don't buy a photo package but did so this time since we wanted some pictues of endemic Hawaiian fish.Picture quality was good and CD was reasonably priced.

The boat trip back to Maui featured a pod of spinner dolphins to entertain us.A truly great day of diving.
