Comments We signed up for the trip and they took our deposit; we made our air reservations and THEN they told us that the trip may not go if enough people don't sign up. Different members of our party were given different information re: how many people were needed to assure the trip. It worked out when enough folks signed up for the trip but it was pretty frustrating to deal with them, and they don't make their policy clear on their web site.
The diving was nice, but nothing spectacular with the exception of the manta dive on the final night (more about that in a moment). The dive sites were along along the coast and were quite similar to each other with little variety of topography or undersea life. It was certainly pleasant: tropical fish in small to moderate sized densities, turtles, corals in fair condition. The manta dive on the last night is truly spectacular: we, along with many other divers, go in with dive lights ablaze, attracting plankton and thus attracting mantas. Six mantas came swooping in and stayed for over an hour. It was a wonderful experience to see these giant rays gracefully scooping up plankton and performing an underwater ballet!
The boat crew were a nice group of folks, but not particularly helpful. There was no assistance with gearing up, getting on/off the boat, etc unless specifically requested. The dive guides were adequate. This was a pleasant trip and may be particularly enjoyable for divers who want easy diving and have had little or no previous exposure to Hawaii diving.
