This is our 5th trip with Kohala Divers. Boat Captain Steve Creamer was
very knowledgeable, safety conscious, and very helpful in assisting my wife
with doffing tank in water prior to exit to avoid climbing up ladder with
tank on a bad back. Divemasters Kelli, Chris & Robin very helpful in
pointing out nudibranchs, frogfish, macro photo subjects for photos.
Beginners were put with 1 divemaster, advanced with another. Bonus is
trolling/fishing during surface interval. As we had prior experience in
diving various sites, we were given option of setting our own profiles and
diving seperate from the dive groups (which were always very small).

Dive sites were plentiful and only repeated during same week if weather
conditions were unfavorable. On one day, rain night before had dropped vis
to less then 30 feet on the Northern dive sites, Capt. Steve drove the boat
South  down the Kohala Coast 45 minutes to obtain 75+ plus vis. Not too
many dive operations give the Captain that kind of freedom,  with the price
of gas these days.
